Question about Olympus WS-320M (1GB) MP3 Player
Hi, My Olympus WS 320 M Won't play certain MP3 files. It has nothing to do with bitrate, apparently. I put the files on the MP3 player through drag and drop. the file shows on the player's window, but when I push play, it says "illegal file". Does that mean the player detects some sort of copy protection, or rather that certain types of MP3 files pose a problem, technically ? hope anybody has a clue. thanks, Jan
I found the problem, I believe. Check out page 80 of the user
manual. I formatted the unit and ever after it would not play mp3s,
even those I had previously used successfully. It no longer plays mp3s
after formatting. I have heard that the limitation is on mp3’s at lower
bitrates than 128k. Mine are all lectures at 56kbps. My solution is to
recode my lectures from 56k mp3 to 64k WMA and it works. I understand
that you can also recode to 128k mp3 but in my case this would make the
files much larger.
I hope this helps.
