Format error means that you are not playing the file extension which is supported by your mp3 player ,it should be .mp3 extension.
for eg if your song name is let the music play.it should be as let the music play.mp3
if you are unable to see .mp3 extension
goto my computer>tools>folder option >view tab > uncheck "hide extension for know file types".
if you have any problem .just reply with a comment so that i can help you further

Good luck

thanks for using fixya

One song that I want to play on my mp3 player keep coming up "Format Error". Why is ... You can't, unless you find out WHAT format it is, and install a player that is compatible with THAT format. Apparently, you are trying to play a file that IS NOT MP3. m. 0 ... #2 doesn't really happen often, but it can happen.

I had jxd in it songs are not playing i copied songs in jxd in audio file songs r appearing in jxd but not playing i pressed play button "file type error" coming why


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

When I down load music it will not play ,I get a format error message. What do I do


Hi a nite377...

Your player takes a certain format to play the music that you want to put into it.
It is telling you format error because the music you are trying to put into it is not the right format to play on you mp3 player.
You will need to download and install a format converter.
It will take the format of your songs that you want to put on it and convert them to the right format for your player to play.
Once you have the songs converted to the format you need, then download them to your player and they should play in your player when selected.
Go to the following website and download install and run a FREE (no strings attached) file converter.

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.

Format error= Wrong format to play the pictures,files,music,etc. on your MP3 player.

MP3 PLAYER IS SAYING AUDIO FORMAT FILE ERROR


Make sure that the file format of the music you are trying to play is supported by the player that you have. If it isn't you can convert the file by using a file converter you can download from the net.
