My Nokia E88 phone can not play video files,message showing as fail to open file.

Dear user,

Maybe the file format is not supported, typically newer phones of Nokia support 3gp and MP4 formats, if your file is windows media player file it wont open unless you install an additional software.

or you need to convert the file you want into the formats supported by phone and then transfer to cell phone.

there are many free software available for conversion of file formats as well software's to play multiple formats on phone

Can i play .wmv file

consult your phone manual, it was stated there what file you can play for your player, if your phone codecs support it, then you can play, if not, you need a converter to convert the file you wanted to play to its phone player format. if your phone player is window media 11, try it, it may play, as this player supports wma, wav, midi, and video, wmv (windows media video format). still, try to check your user manual..

Make sure that the file type and format of those music is supported by your phone, you need to check the specifications of the phone to make sure that you have the list of supported file format of music that it accepts. You can verify that by checking the website or manual of your phone.

when you changed the file name did you change the name beyond the dot , for instance ,family movie.3gp to family movie
Its seems like you have lost the file extension ,just re type the name to whatever.3gp..

Problem Playing Windows Media Player Movie Clip on My E90

Suitable file format for your phone are 3gp, mp4, mpg, etc except wmv. WMV files cannot be opened by this model. If you really want to play it on you phone you must convert this file first. i suggest converting it into mp4 or 3gp. It the only way to play the video in your phone.

Nokia 6288 / format memory card

MMC puchased should be formatted once, because new MMC comes with file system FAT-32. and mobile phones supports FAT file system. You can copy your data from MMC to PC using MMC reader/writer first. Then format it in your mobile and then reload your data in formatted MMC at folder created during formatting. Then you may see your MMC working properly. Fix your problem and vote here to fixya for solution....
