I solved this problem by inserting my memory card that contained the Mp3 files on my computer.

Then I went and manually shortened all of the files names. There's a limit of 32 characters for file names on this phone.

After I did this, my phone can play every song!

Hope this helps..

Whenever I am trying to play all tracks in music palyer, I am getting an error message "Unsupported file" after first song is over. Due to this problem I am unable to listen multiple songs in...


Hello

The problem might be that the files are unsupported by the phone For example the tracks might be of wma,m4a or wav format and the phone might support only mp3 format

Please make sure all the songs are mp3 format and make sure there is enough free space on your phone as this also might be the cause,

Switch off your phone and remove the battery for 5 to 10 seconds,this resets the phone memory and should also fix the error you are receiving

Not all audio song formats are supported by this phone. Only few like mp3 etc are supported. Check the user manual for the supported file types.

Unsupported file?


Hiya, I had already converted mine to an mp3, and it still wasn't working, so I changed it to an m4a, and it worked! :) Instead of sending it to my phone by the computer cable, i sent it via bluetooth. Also, if you are using iTunes on a Mac, then when you drag the song out of your iTunes library, it will automatically be an m4a file.
Hope this helps. :)

Downloaded music to 60g zen xtra


Hi there

I would suggest that you have a look at the file format, i.e .mp3 .wma and then make sure that you mp3 player supports that file format because if the mp3 player only supports mp3's then it will not play .wma. Please remember to give me a good rating.

Kind regards

Format error


It's an unsupported file format. Are you trying to play files that were ripped in I-tunes? I-tunes does not make mp3s, it makes m4a files, which are not supported. Make sure the files you put on this player are mp3 files. You can also use wma files, but you will probably need to use Windows Media Player to transfer those files.

Let me know how you get on & shout if you need more help!

MP3 Player plays only 25 songs, capacity 1GB (861 MB)


Seems like a big problems you got there...

I reccomened re-formatting your drive to fat32 (for windows users) and giving it a second try.

I had the saem trouble a while back with my iPod Video 60gb and noticed that it was storing huge amounts of data that wasnt meant to be there. After the reformat it all worked again.

You also sure its not a full drive? because my Q-Be used to say "file error" on a full drive (vista bug)

---Give reformatting a go though.
