Re: playing music from playlist

Either you uploaded a .Wav file or another file that is not supported.
Check the file and make sure it is a midi or mp3

How do i send song from the computer to the phone.

he Motorola razr v3i supports two kinds of music file formats: MP3 formats with bitrates of 192 Kbps and AAC formats with bitrates of 128 Kbps. Songs with lower bitrates are converted into appropriate bit rate songs before playing on the phone.

  1. The iTunes application should be open on the computer
  2. The phone should be connected to the computer using the USB cable such that the phone icon pops up in the iTunes application in the computer
  3. Select PREFERENCES from the EDIT menu in the application
  4. IN the PREFERENCE window, choose the PHONE option
  5. Before transferring the songs, choose the option which allows for conversion of all higher bitrate songs into bitrates of 192 Kbps
  6. Finally click OK to convert all songs into compatible formats ready for transfer
  7. Now the songs are ready to be transferred from the desktop to the mobile phone
  8. The songs can be transferred on to an external storage device like a memory card
  9. First the card should be installed on the phone
  10. Now the card should be set as the default USB connection on the phone. This can be done by going into the DEFAULT CONNECTION menu of USB settings in the CONNECTIONS menu
  11. The phone should be connected to the computer using the USB cable and the iTunes application should be open on the computer
  12. The application will show the phone icon on the left side of the screen
  13. Now drag and drop an entire playlist or specific songs from the playlist onto the phone. The average transfer time for a song is 45 seconds
  14. After all song transfers are done, the phone can be ejected by selecting the EJECT icon in the application
  15. The phone should be ejected only after the DO NOT DISCONNECT message disappears from the screen of the phone
  16. Now the songs appear in the iTunes digital jukebox on the phone where songs are stored under SONGS menu and playlists under the PLAYLIST menu
  17. Please note that the Bluetooth connection cannot be used to transfer music between the phone and the computer

Hi this is vijay my probelm is when i open music player it shows not enough memory but the song plays and i cannot see vedio or playlist while song was playing

It may be due to too less free phone memory.. As to run the application there must be sufficient phone memory..Try transfering the files which u saved on your phone memory to external memory..

Music Player not working on SciPhone i68+

Im having the same problem!
i did find out though, how to play the songs on the music player.
Go to the "Documents" app and then pick "Memory Card" then chose whatever folder you saved the music files on, then click "Options" and the n click "Play".
there is a problem though, only one song will appear to be on the playlist, so u are going to have to go back into the folder and click on another file in order to ,listen to it.

Problems transfering music from computer to phone

When you put them on your card they are just that on your card (may not show up on your playlist) Some phones (like my blackberry and pocket pc) you have to add them to the card then go directly to the memory card to play them from your phone. There should also be an option to add your songs from the memory card to your playlist. Try selecting the memory card (through your phone) and checking the options to see if one says ad to playlist. If not do the other way around. Go t your playlist and add songs (from the SD card) if should ask you from where and you can select the memory card. All else fails you can go to any cell phone store and they can do it (its easier to do it looking at the phone then over the

How do i transfer Music to my Iphone from my computer, Once plugged into the computer the songs that are currently in the iphone are unhighlighted and cannot move songs to or from the iphone.. Please help

You need to create a playlist for the iPhone. This isn't intuitive and I don't know why it's this way. It works great, there just isn't anything explaining what to do. This seems to snag Windows users the most. Maybe Mac users are already used to doing things this way? I don't know.

Below is a picture of my iTunes. Look down in the lower-left corner and see that my playlist is highlighted. At the very bottom-left corner you can click the plus sign to create a new playlist. Then drag all of the music you want to the playlist. Finally, in the music tab of your iPhone, make sure you click the playlist you just made to sync all music on that list to your phone.

This will do the trick.

Error message M506

I also had this problem and thought my music players were broken. The media players displayed the songs as 00:00:00 even when the file info read that it took up space and had a song length. The music player displayed that m506 error message.

I looked through forms for an answer, and I noticed I didn't try messing with one thing: THE BATTERY.

Try taking the battery out of your phone and putting it back in. It worked for me! My music players work again!
