>       vin.readFixed(magic);                         // read magic
>     } catch (IOException e) {
>       throw new IOException("Not a data file.", e);

>     if (!Arrays.equals(DataFileConstants.MAGIC, magic))
>       throw new IOException("Not a data file.");
> {code}
> Please consider improving the error message here.  I just saw a MapReduce job fail with an IOException with the message "Not a data file."  There was definitely data files in the input directory, however, they were not Avro files. It would have been much more helpful if it told me that.
