Try removing any metadata (ID tags) from the file.

Are you exporting the file to MP3 format or simply naming it as an MP3?

Knowing the error will help us troubleshoot your problem. Can you copy and paste the error message here?
What audio recording program are you using? Audacity or something else?
What file name did you give the file? Are there any special characters in it?

Could you upload it somewhere else - to Google Drive, or Dropbox, or something like that - and share it with us that way?

This is not a solution to the problem, since project files have to be uploaded via our uploader. But it's to look at your file and see if we can figure out why it won't go.

Just a thought - could it be the uppercase S in the file name? I think all letters should be in lowercase.

While files should be lower case, the upper case letter doesn't cause an error in the uploader. :)
