I would look in the script (php, xml, fla?) that generates the path for 
these mp3 files. I think it's related to an undefined or empty variable 
being printed and when the browser sends the request the web server 
can't find the file, etc, etc.

You may be doing something like

$filename = getMyFile($id);
echo '/path-to/ . $filename . '.mp3';

But if getMyFile() returns an empty string the problem arises.

if (!$filename = getMyFile($id)) {
     $filename = 'something';
     // or fix the function

echo '/path-to/ . $filename . '.mp3';

Could be a millon things.

Yesterday I saw on this thread that flash couldn't be sending the 
referring information. Otherwise you could post your log settings here 
and that may help.
