I'm translating the audio for a number of animations made in AE. Sometimes when the mac users import new audio in another language, AE plays and renders a totally different mp3 file than what has been imported. It is playing another piece of translated audio from another folder but I can't tell where from (as it's in another language).
When I click reveal in Finder, the track in Finder plays the correct audio.
When I re-import after purging and emptying caches, AE still plays the wrong audio.
I found a work around where if I copy and re-name the audio and import that it works. The problem is, we can't tell when this has occurred until reviews have been performed and it's costing us a lot of time in re-renders and fixing.
Does anyone know what causes this problem? Has anyone even encountered it?
Any advice is much appreciated.

Sure: You are using MP3 files. AE never has been good with them. Convert them to WAV/ AIFF.
Thanks for the tip Mylenium. I'll plump for WAVs in the future. Funny thing is I seem to remember AE 5.5 used to have problems with WAVs... Oh well at least one of them works now!
