|Trouble with MP3 files

I've been using Kazaa Lite++ for a while (before I used Grokster), and I've encountered something that completely confuses me.
It happened when I was trying to download Shania Twain's Forever and For Always; I was able to play the first few seconds of the song, and then would hear a very annoying, loud garbled noise. My first assumption was that Twain's new CD is encrypted some how (though I had never heard of this type of encryption before), but I later found that a) the Up! album (that has that particular song on it) is not on one of the lists that I checked for encrypted albums, and b) I eventually found a version of the file that worked on my computer. It took six or seven tries, but I have found a version that plays on my computer fine, without any problems.
I dismissed it as something peculiar to that song or album, but was baffled again when I found that the same thing happened when I tried to download a 3 Doors Down song. I think it was a newer song, but I'm not entirely sure.
So does anyone know what's going on? Is it my computer (Windows 200)? Are these songs coming from encrypted CDs? If so, why was I able to find a version of the song that worked on my computer? Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
