Req Help - - Olympus WS 320 M - Won't play some MP3 files

Hi, 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. thanks, Jan

    I have the same problem. I've had the unit for a year, and the REALLY crazy thing is that mp3 files that it USED to play no longer play. I have recorded lectures that I listen to and the exact same mp3 file that played fine a few months ago now delivers an "illegal file" message!?

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.

Hip Street 7334- 4g Video mp3 player Hey um what kind of video file does the video have to be to play in my mp3 player does it have to be .avi, .mp3, .mp4, .flv or what? please help me because I can't...

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.

Good Luck,

Mikeywaf

Is there any way to retrieve deleted files on an Olympus WS-331M?

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.

How to import Olympus WS 110 audio files to computer.

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.
