URLs cannot contain spaces. You either need to replace them with plus
signs (which I hardly ever see anyone do these days), or escape them as %20
(20 hexadecimal = 32 decimal which is the character number of the space
character). So to post a link to a file called The Beatles - Help.mp3 you
use something like this:
If this doesn't answer your question, maybe give us a filename and the URL
for it which doesn't work.
