Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players
Could be that one of the tracks you have loaded is copy protected (DRM) some players just skip these tracks, some show a "File format not supported" error, and others freeze.
Go to the folder where you store the tracks you have loaded on to the player using My Computer or Windows Explorer, so that the individual tracks show.
Click on the Views icon and select Details
In the right hand windows, right click on one of the headings which have just appeared, and put a tick in the "Protected" box.
"Protected" will now appear as a heading and each file will show Yes or No.
Any files showing as Yes are not compatible with your player.
If you are downloading these files from the internet, then you'll have to look elsewhere for files.
If you are ripping your own CDs to .MP3 or .WMA with Windows Media Player, then you need to change a setting in Windows Media Player.
Open Windows Media Player. If visible, click on "Tools" then options. If the menus are not visible, right-click at the top of the Media Player Window, then select "Tools" and click options.
Click on the "Rip CD" or "Rip Music" tab (depending on version).
Remove the tick from the box next to "Copy Protect Music" (or similar)
This will stop DRM protection on any further tracks ripped.
You will need to rip any DRM tracks again.
