ASP Page 404 Error Help Needed

Web site is on a Windows 2003 Web Server  using IIS 6 ASP and ASP.NET

the following code works great for MP3 files

It will list all file types MP3 M4A and WMA

When I click on any MP3 it will play in the browser no problem IE Firefox Chrome Safari.

When I click on M4A or WMA I get this error
HTTP Error 404 - File or directory not found.
Internet Information Services (IIS)

If I convert the same .M4A file to MP3 it works

I have over 2400 hundred M4A files that I would rather not convert back to MP3.

Any thoughts on this?

<% ListFolderContents(Server.MapPath("/mp3/mp3musicalbums")) %>
<% sub ListFolderContents(path)
     dim fs, folder, file, item, url
     set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
     set folder = fs.GetFolder(path)
    'Display the target folder and info.
     Response.Write("<h2>"& folder.Name &"</h2>")
     'Display a list of sub folders.
     for each item in folder.SubFolders
                ListFolderContents(item.Path)
     next
     'Display a list of files.
Response.Write("<ul>")
    for each item in folder.Files
       If UCase(fs.GetExtensionName(item.name)) = "MP3" or UCase(fs.GetExtensionName(item.name)) = "M4A" or UCase(fs.GetExtensionName(item.name)) = "WMA" Then
          url = MapURL(item.path)
          Response.Write("<li><a href=""" & url & """>" & item.Name & "</a></li>")
       end if
    next
        Response.Write("</ul>")
   end sub
   function MapURL(path)
     dim rootPath, url
     'Convert a physical file path to a URL for hypertext links.
     url = "/mp3/" & Right(path, Len(path) - 9)
     MapURL = Replace(url, "\", "/")
end function  %>

try these steps:

1) Select the site to configure in IIS, right click and select "Properties"
2) Under HTTP Headers Tab, select "File Types" under the MIME Map section and select "New Type"
3) Type ".flv" as the associated extension and "video/x-flv" as the content type or "flv-application/octet-stream" I'm not sure on which one gives here.
4) for .mp4 files type ".mp4" as the extension and "video/mp4" as the mime type (this one I tested personally)
4) Select "OK",
5) type services.msc, find the "World Wide Web Publishing Service" and click on the restart icon on top or open up and choose restart
