MP3 Complete Downloads

I asked a similar question about PDFs, but I wanted to check on MP3 download stats as well. My question is, would I use visitors to track the MP3 downloads just like PDFs or is this a case where Hits - Incomplete Requests make sense?

Sample Data:

Hits Incomplete Requests Visitors Bandwidth (KB)
89 52 31 622,025
41 18 17 145,806
29 14 15 221,819

Thank you very much.

In fact the "Hits - Incomplete Requests" statistics shouldn't be used for any files. Incomplete Requests may be useful to check whether there were requests for parts of files, but it doesn't help to determine number of complete downloads.

So for MP3 files number of visitors should be used like for the PDF files.
