There's no context menu for rename, I've also tried clicking on it when it's highlightd (which usually changes name too). It wont open in realplayer VLC or WMP.
 
I get this error "The file name is too long." when trying to open it.

I've also tried to convert it but thje converter software says unknown file type.
 
Any help much appreciated!

I am finding it difficult to see exactly what your file name is. It looks like the ending is: ...End.mp3.WhiteFeather.mp3????? If the ending is really this, then you need to possibly get rid of one of the *.mp3s.
