My mp3 says file format error when I try to listen to the music.


It's possible that the file type of the music file(s) you are trying to listen to are not a supported format of your mp3 player. Your player only supports MP3 and WMA audio formats. You should check the music files you are tying to play to confirm they are of a compatible format.

Undocumented WMA playing mode


Looks there is a previous version of this same player which reproduces WMA but according to current manual which came with player, it supports audio formats MP3, OGG,APE, FLAC,WAV and AAC. WMA is not included I happen to like WMA format so copied some WMA files to music folder. Player hadn't recognized it. So changed wma extension to mp3, just as simple as that.and now I have no problem to listen my wma audio discography. This trick saved me long hours of the file conversion process.
Warning: Don't TAG these renamed mp3 files. They'll get illegiblel

By the way, Earphones have surprisingly good sound quality but they don't fit in my ears! So I replaced the with Samsung earplugs which came with my cell phone

Why Convert Protected AAC to MP3 / WMA?

(1). iTunes AAC music has two types --- DRM protected AAC (with .m4p file name); Non-DRM AAC (with .m4a file name).
(2). For Non-DRM AAC (M4A) music, most of the popular digital devices can't play them, for example, if you have iriver and want enjoy iTunes M4A music on it, sorry, no luck!
(3). For DRM protected AAC (M4P) songs, only Apple's ipod, iPhone are authorized to play them, of course, with limited number of iPod players and computers to which to transfer.
(4). MP3 and WMA are the most popular audio formats for most of the digital players including PSP, PS3, Zune, Xbox 360, creative Zen, Archos, Iriver, Blackberry, Samsung, Sonywalkman, HTC, Sansa, Cowon etc.

I am trying to play music from a micro sd card and my cell phone says no music is on the card. When I put the card in the computer it shows that thier is music on the card.


Hi you need to check what format of music your phone uses some only use MP3 some use WMA then all you need to do is convert the music on your memory card into the correct format you can this by using google and just search like this
how to convert wma to mp3
then hit search and that will list loads of sites that will let you convert it for free to the correct format,

if the music is from i tunes then it wont let you play it on the phone as you have to download it using the phone itself to play music from i tunes if its just normal music on your computer then it should just transfer but you need to get it in the correct format first

most phones use the mp3 format so you could try converting them all to that first, also does your phone recognise the mem card is it formated to your phone can you say transfer a picture on your phone onto the memory card if you can do that then the memory card is ok if it wont let you then you need to format the card to the format your phone accepts such as fat 16 or fat 32 you need to check this with your phones details

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please rate this solution, thanks

Song Formats for Mp3 Players Explained, Part II by Tha Mp3 Doctor WMA files are...


Song Formats for Mp3 Players Explained, Part II
by Tha Mp3 Doctor

WMA files are special. There are two types of WMA file, and the Mp3 or digital Audio Player documentation will not always tell which of these two types the Mp3 player will recognize. Type I is a non-licensed, or non-DRM-protected WMA file. DRM stands for Digital Rights Management, and it is Microsoft’s copyright system for music files. If you have a type of Mp3 player that will only accept non-DRM protected files, the product specs for your player will NOT mention the words "DRM" or "Windows Plays ForSure" on them (unless they are using it in the negative, such as "this player does NOT support DRM encryption"). In MOST cases (there are more and more exceptions), Windows Media Player will convert songs from CD’s that you personally bought from the store into non-DRM encrypted WMA format.

The second type of WMA file is a DRM-encrypted WMA file, and there are several subtypes of these. Every DRM-encrypted file can have "play rights," "burn rights," and "transfer rights." "Play rights" mean you can play the song on your computer, "burn rights" mean you can burn the song to CD, and "transfer rights" mean you can transfer the song to your Mp3 player. Once again, not all WMA files are created equal. If you have a BASIC subscription to a music service such as Napster, you may download songs that have "play rights" – you can play them on your computer without any problem; but they may lack burn rights and transfer rights – so you cannot burn them to CD, or transfer them to your Mp3 player without incident. The solution here is to upgrade your music service to the premium, more expensive subscription that includes burn rights and transfer rights.

Then there are "fixed-term" licenses and "unlimited" licenses on WMA files. A fixed-term license will expire after so many days, months, or years; and will require you to resynchronize your songs to the music service or to your computer in order to continue playing them. This is a key reason behind songs "disappearing." Napster and Rhapsody are two examples of music services with fixed-term licenses. You must resynchronize your Mp3 player to your computer every 30 days, and you must keep you music service subscription active. If you let your subscription lapse, then the songs that were once working will no longer be playable. Once again, the only remedies are to renew your music service subscription (legal), convert those songs into a different format that the Mp3 player will recognize (possibly illegal), or to use DRM-removal software (illegal and unreliable).

One word needs to be said about burning your own personal CD’s and transferring them to the Mp3 player. CD’s naturally put song files into CDA format. Most Mp3 players do not recognize CDA format. So you will have to use Windows Media Player (easiest, IMO) or some other software to convert the CDA files into Mp3, WMA, or some other format that your Mp3 player recognizes, BEFORE you can transfer them to the Mp3 player.

Real Audio files also have an encryption system, and may not work with most Mp3 players – check your product documentation.

Audiobooks are in their own format and bring their own special problems which fall outside the scope of this article.

There are a ton of music services out there. iTunes uses AAC format. Napster, Rhapsody, Bearshare, Spiral Frog, and many others use DRM-protected WMA format nowadays. Limewire and Morpheus generally use Mp3 or non-DRM-encrypted files. Double check the formats that your player will support BEFORE choosing a music service. Conversely, if you already have a music service, choose an mp3 player that’s right for your particular service. Note: most store workers do not have the faintest idea of what I have been discussing in this article, so don’t trust their judgment – educate yourself first.

AS A GENERAL RULE OF THUMB (as always, there are exceptions), all Mp3 players recognize the Mp3 file format. The Mp3 file format is the least problematic of all the file formats. It takes up less space on your Mp3 player than most file formats – so you can load more songs onto your player than if you were using other formats. So, if you download all of your songs into Mp3 format, or tell Windows Media Player to convert your own CD’s into Mp3 format, then you will rarely go wrong.

Got sd card and installed music from computer ,plugged into phone but when i go to music player it shows no songs on card, how ever when put back tocomputer songs show up and play


Your Samsung Hue can only play MP3 encoded files (extension mp3). If you have taken music that has been ripped using the windows media player, the default rip settings put the tracks into windows media audio format (wma) which your phone cannot read. You'll need to find a free wma to mp3 converter and convert your files to load onto your phone. You can also set Windows Media Player to default to MP3 when ripping under the Tools|Options menu item. Look under the RIP tab and change the default format to MP3. If you are already using MP3, it is possible that you are using to high of a Kbs rate on your MP3's in which case you'll need to be sure you rip tracks in a lower Kbs rate (also under the RIP tab in Windows Media Player). Here is a link to a free WMA to MP3 converter...

The songs are in the wrong format - see the manual/product specs for your mp3 player for details (note: not all mp3 players take drm-protected wma's)

Exs of music formats:
Mp3 - best
AAC - generally only works with brand-name iPod
WMA (DRM-encrypted) - problematic
WMA (non-DRM-encrypted) - problematic
