Cannot convert this type of file!

Hi, I am using Cubase 11 Elements. All of the sudden, I am unable to import mp3’s into my projects. Never had a problem before. I am now unable to even import mp3 that I have already imported into projects. I am getting the message “Cannot convert this type of file!” I can even open them and hear them in media bay, but still get the same error when trying to import them. As far as I know, I haven’t changed a thing, and I scanned for viruses and I am all clean. Not sure what is going on
