Discussion of converting to Sibelius from Finale.
Is there a way to open open or convert MUS files without using finale? my college theory professor uses finale and sends us assignments and notes via e-mail but I use sibelius. is there a way to do this without using finale to save them as etf files?

Have your professor send the files as MUSIC XML Files within Finale. These can be opened usually by Sibelius. I use both programs and am a professor who uses Finale while many of my students use Sibelius. If sending the file back to your prof, I used to have my students send as midi files until I broke down and bought a copy of Sibelius so i could review their work on line.
If you've got Sibelius 4, then you don't need to download the MusicXML DTDs; they're installed automatically. It sounds like you need to reinstall Sibelius 4.
