Question about Nokia 6600
Having looked at the boards, I saw that a lot of people asked about how to listen to MP3 files on your Nokia 6600. I saw numerous possible answers, but I didn't find any of them too useful. They included suggestions like:
- Convert it to WAV
No good because it takes up too much space.
- Use a Symbian-based MP3 player
They cost money or are unreliable
So here is my solution. The 6600 has a very nice in-built Realplayer, so let's use that. Simply convert any MP3 you want to listen to into a RealMedia file! The necessary tool is freely available from RealNetworks itself, at the time of writing available from this URL:
Here is an important tip: When converting the file, make sure you select the appropriate "audience". By audience, the conversion tool basically just means the quality of the file. The better the quality, the more space it takes up.
A standard MP3 file usually has a bitrate of 128kbps. During conversion, I selected 128k Dual ISDN as the audience, because that gives a bitrate of 100kbs, the closest I found to 128kbps. At this quality, 2 minutes of music ends up at around 1.5 Megabytes. This means about 40 minutes of music can be stored on a 32 Megabyte Multimedia Card. You might want to set the quality lower if you want to store more.
Also, if you don't touch the audience settings, then by default the converter produces three different quality outputs simultaneously, and saves all three in the output file. This obviously wastes space.
Hope this helps, Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
