Can't replace file

Hi, I’m trying to replace my remix with an updated version, but without any luck. I’ve tried three times, but each time it just keeps the old file.

The remix I’m trying to update is this one. The file I want to replace it with can be found here.

Never mind. I found a work around. I updated a new file, labeled it Alternate Mix, then switched it to Default and deleted the original….

I’m guessing the way you were trying to verify that that the replace worked was by playing it through the in-page Flash player? (the little speaker button)

If so, then the file was in fact replaced but your browser had cached the original file. If you were to try stream or download you would have seen the file was, in fact, replaced.

The reason the ‘add file’/’delete file’ combo worked is because it was renamed along the way with a ‘_1’ which didn’t match the file name in your cache.
