Music files not supported? Android music app

- Music101 question: Im new to Android and I have a CLIQ.
I just copyied music files from my Windows-based pc the they all copied with no problem. The issue is when I go to play the music I have to force close the app repeatedly then I get an error message saying "sorry player does not support this type of audio file".
Is there an app available to convert files or did I mess up the path in someway that the songs, all mp3's btw, just aren't being located properly?
Any help would be greatly appreciated03-08-2010 12:19 PM

Consider trying another music app as well.05-23-2011 07:13 AM
- My guess is that you are trying to play WMA (Windows Media Audio) files, not MP3 files. The standard Android music player does not support WMA. I use BoomBoxoid to play my music collection because it supports all WMA files. You may also want to try MortPlayer. It plays most WMA files. Both are free. PowerAmp also plays all WMA files, but it costs $5.18.05-23-2011 08:16 PM
- What I had to do to get my media player to play my MP3 files was
1.) Connect your infuse to your computer via mass storage.
2.) Open up your DCIM file on your phone
3.) Create a "My Music" folder inside DCIM
4.) Move your music files inside this folder and this should fix the problem. Just disconnect from you computer and use your media player.

- It has been easy with every other phone ive ever used, EXCEPT my brand new galaxy S4. It will not play mp3 files, they are not wma files and when u put a mp4 in there it asks to convert it. Yet no player will play them?! ive tried 6 different music player apps. There is an issue or a bug here because everyone is experiencing the same issue. SOmetimes the phone magically deletes everything in the music file too. Ive tried having the music file in with the lost.dir and android, ive tried making a sub folder in all of these folders, nothing works! sometimes i will get 1-2 albums out of the 30 i put on there play for a day then they are gone08-29-2013 09:56 AM
- I think the only reason there haven't been any recent answers is that it's considered bad form to dig up such a mouldering corpse. (A month is usually the point at which it's considered polite to allow the thread to rest in peace.)
If the files are being transferred by some content-aware program, that's probably the problem. They aren't mp3 files by the time they get to the phone.
If they aren't, post #3 answered the question.02-19-2014 11:25 PM
- Some songs are recognized on my Galaxy Note 2 but when i play them it says"Sorry, the player does not support this type of audio file" Or it plays the first 3 seconds of the song then skips to the next one i tryed VLC For android and Realplayer it doesn't work but plays fine on my laptop06-28-2014 04:12 AM
- I just purchased a Samsung Galaxy S4 yesterday and want to put all my music on it All of my older music that has been in my itunes has been playing. The ones i have recently downloaded are not playing and its giving me the "Sorry, the player does not support this type of audio file" message. Please tell me what I'm doing wrong. I would really like to add a lot more music that has just been released onto my phone.07-20-2014 01:36 AM

- Well I have a partial solution, for me at least. I copied all my mp3 files from my PC (running XP) to my rooted stock retail Samsung Galaxy Note 3, OS 4.4.2, NC4 firmware using the USB cable. And I got the same error as everyone else. Eveyr player I tried said it couldn't play any of my mp3's.
Turns out I had the phone connected as an installer. What I did was to turn off USB debugging and then swipe down the notification bar to find the item that says "Connected as". It should say "Connected as a media device" (MTP mode). If it's connected as an installer, you'll get this problem and none of your files will play.
That said, now all my mp3's are playing, but they're playing at about 10x speed. Again, same deal with every player I've tried (Google Music, Mort Player, Rocket Player). So what the heck is that all about?
Man, it's just one thing after another with this phone.07-23-2014 04:34 PM
