Perhaps reloading the software for your phone or upgrading the software on your phone.

Cant play the music

Add music to I9

Connect your i9 to your PC via the USB cable.
On the phone select "Mass Storage Device".

On the PC you will see 2 new drives appear.
One will be the SD card. The other is the Phones internal memory.

Now just simply copy your MP3 files to the Memory card folder "My Music".
Do not use the phones internal memory as it just is not big enough.

The Audio player will only play music from a folder called "My Music" or "MP3"
depending on which firmware version you have on your i9. If one doesn't work try naming it the other!
Also make sure you are selecting the right storage area in the Audio player options, either the phone
or the memory card, because there can be identical music folders on both, and if you don't choose the
correct storage location, your music files still won't show in the Audio player!
Make sure the audio file is in a format the i9 can play. Known music file types are mp3, wav, amr, m4a, & mp4.
DO NOT place music in sub folders within either of the My Music or MP3 main folders, the Audio player
will not find them unless the music files are directly within the proper My Music or MP3 folders!

Every time you add new music to your i9 you will need to refresh the List in order for the audio
player to see all the newly added songs. To do this open the player. Tap "List" at the bottom of
the screen. Tap "Options". Tap "Refresh list". You can also go into the audio player settings &
turn ON the "List auto gen." option. If the option is ON, then after you add new music, the new
music should be added to the entire list of music already showing. If you have problems with the
music list showing up empty, or new music you have just added not showing up in the current list
of songs, then try turning OFF the List auto gen option and refresh the list manually again by using
the Refresh list option as described earlier. Manually refreshing the music list must be done every
time you add new music files to the phone if the List auto gen option is OFF.

You get to the List auto gen option by two ways with the Audio player open and onscreen
for most i9 firmware (some firmware might not have it, or may be in another area);

1.) Tap the little wrench icon to the far right on the black option panel,
then scroll down to the List auto gen. option!

2.) Tap the List option at the bottom of the screen, tap the Options button
at the bottom of the
screen, tap the Settings button, scroll down to List auto gen.

I try to open a music player but its not opened,"operation failed" only come plz solve this problem

If this is the original player that came with phone, then try powering down and removing the battery for about 20 seconds, then repowering.
Phone may have gotten into a weird state.

If you are trying to load the player by clicking on the music file, the file may not be in a compatible format with Nokia's music play. If the file extension is not .mp3 or.wma(windows media player), then this may be the problem. I am not sure it will even play a .wma music file. Check manual, downloadable from net. Open music player directly by selecting it off Main Menu, then look in Options or Help fine in Music Player application.

Barring this, google on the net to find out how to Hard Reset your phone in order to reset it back to original mfg settings. The player file may have gotten corrupted. Note you will loose any files or applications you added to the phone since you received it.

If it is a Symbian OS phone, then you can reload the player application over a USB connection after downloading in to your PC, or find a Symbian third party player, often better than original player and will always play more sound file types.
