We need your manufacturer and model number to be of maximum assistance, but the most likely possibilities are:
1) The file is not in a format recognized by the player - if you have an mp3 player that only plays mp3 or WMA files, then it will not play iTunes files, for instance
2) The file you are transferring has DRM encryption, and your player does not support DRM-encryption (or the reverse - the file does not have encryption, and needs to be encrypted)

Give us your model/manufacturer, and we will tell you exactly what that msg means.

Why can't I parse my package?

Are you getting "there is a problem parsing the package" message when trying to install an android application? Well, that's because it is not verified from Google Play and you're not downloading it from google play store but installing .apk from other source or directly copied on your handset.
In this case, you have to enable the following settings to install it without any problem.
Step 1- Go to device Settings(icon) menu
Step 2- Tap on Security
Step 3- Device administration
Step 4- Unknown sources - Check mark Unknown Sources
That's all. A small post but might be helpful for beginner Android developers.

Unknown sources option is listed under the option 'security' in settings.
Most of the android phones have Google Play preinstalled in them.

Downloading music from soundcloud

Have you ever tried Music Recorder?
I have used it to successfully download music from YouTube, Spotify, SoundCloud and so on.
Let me show you how to use it :

Set audio source to record

Click the "Audio Source" icon on the main interface to set audio source firstly. Because you are going to record SoundCloud music, you need to choose from "Record Computer Audio".


Start recording

Click the red "Start" button to let this Music Recorder work. And then click "Play" to play source streaming music. It should be noted that you need to first let this music recording software start recording and then play your source audio file.
If needed, you can use the Task Scheduler for recording. Click the "Recording task scheduler" icon at the bottom-left corner to open the Task Scheduler where you can set the recording start time and duration. This is suitable especially to record FM radio audios.

you should convert the format of your music.
make the format to suit for your player.
