    that sounds like a windows secuirty message, as to how you disable it 'just' for those files I don't know.

    it could be certifying those files, altering the secuity levels or permissions.

    I think the fix is going to be at the OS level.. not within Access. you could try supressing warnings whilt opening the MP3, and then turn them back on again.... but that doesn't 'feel' like it will work. Id suspect the problem is the media player is interacting with the security profile in some manner.

    there is an Access command SET WARNINGS OFF | ON, but I don't think that will work as your problem is to do with the OS not Access.. if you do turn warnings off remember to turn them back on as soon as possible
