BTW I downloaded the latest Rekordbox version update before I tried to load up the Bandcamp wav. files...
Wav. file won't load / play in Rekordbox
I purchased and downloaded music files from the Bandcamp website, but they file won't read / load / play in Rekordbox, and my XDJ-RX won't recognise them (I get an error message E-8305)... I have no problem with any of my other files, so why these ones?

I am having the same issue.
Same issue over here.
And still no answer from Pioneer....
I have been in touch with bandcamp and they have been very helpful. They suggested that this might happen as the files are high resolution and have very hig bit rates. I down loaded one of the WAV files in AIFF format and it worked fine in Reckordbox. They also suggested that the file may have been corrupted if there were any disruptions during downloading. I have to do some more testing as I have a pretty decen broadband connection. .I have about 50 tracks from bandcamp and I would say about 50% are ok.
OK I FOUND A FIX! I used as a software called Switch by NCH software.
Reconverted and overwrote each file to .WAV and it corrected the file.
seems to be a problem with the way bandcamp issues it's high quality audio.
it's saved as an "extensible wav format"
