Req Help - - Olympus WS 320 M - Won't play some MP3 files
My Olympus WS 320 M Won't play certain MP3 files. It has nothing to do with bitrate, apparently.
I put the files on the MP3 player through drag and drop.
the file shows on the player's window, but when I push play, it says "illegal file".
Does that mean the player detects some sort of copy protection, or rather that certain types of MP3 files pose a problem, technically ?
hope anybody has a clue.
Re: Req Help - - Olympus WS 320 M - Won't play some MP3...
I found the problem, I believe. Check out page 80 of the user
manual. I formatted the unit and ever after it would not play mp3s,
even those I had previously used successfully. It no longer plays mp3s
after formatting. I have heard that the limitation is on mp3’s at lower
bitrates than 128k. Mine are all lectures at 56kbps. My solution is to
recode my lectures from 56k mp3 to 64k WMA and it works. I understand
that you can also recode to 128k mp3 but in my case this would make the
files much larger.
I hope this helps.

Hi Aaron - Your player plays back .avi files (Xvid or Divx) but with a screen resolution of only 128 x 160 make sure you only load low resolution files (the standard for web use .avi files is 320 x 240) but many are higher res than that and they would have trouble playing on your player.
I would suggest you use some free software like mediacoder (Windows but there are Mac and Linux equivalents) to rencode video to your resolution and certainly no higher than 320 x 240.
I think maybe the Olympus MP3 is DRM protected so if you would like to convert the file into .wav file .the first thing you need to do is to remove drm from this file and then convert it .here,I 'd like to introduce you an all-in-one music converter.you could solve all your problem at the same time .save your time .http://www.removing-drm.com/music-converter/reference.html
Unfortunately this recorder model is designed with flash memory and once the files are erased they are gone. There are some companies that do specialize in flash memory recovery (Olympus is not one of them). You can go to google and search for flash memory recovery specialists. However this is a very costly process as it involves sending the device to these companies for them to do the recovery process.
Audio files need the right codecs to play them. Windows media player generally needs these to be added. Download the K-Lyte CODEC pack from the Major Geeks website. Always use the advanced mode when installing them, as they do like to change your browser settings or change your browser completely if you do the normal way.
It is not possible to convert WMA files to MP3 files using the DSS Player software that came with the device. You will need to google search for a third party software that will allow for WMA to MP3 file conversion.
