    Could be a buggy player, try Meridian, it's free and plays most anything.

    I use mixzing and have had this happen before. I switched the players memory over to internal memory and then back over and restarted the device and it seemed to fix it. So basically unmounted SD card and remounted. Don't know if it helps.

    Music playback issues can often be caused by a duff or fake SD card, especially if you've tried various media players. Worth trying a different known good SD to make sure. Typical symptoms of a bad or phoney SD are, you'll see a list of songs, but they just won't play or give "file type not supported", etc.

    I've been having the same troubles. Look at your audio file details- sometimes my downloads screw up, and instead of downloading the whole file, it downloads 2.88kb of it. This returns an error because the content that was asked for was not found. Not sure why it blames it on file format, though. Also, this only seems to affect certain downloads. Let me know if there's any solution, or if your files are the same way.

    EDIT: sorry, didn't realise I bumped a year old thread.

    Hey ! I found the solution ! I had the same problem as you all and i tried all the methods mentionet above, and nothing. I recently buy a new phone and i put in the microsd card, where i have my music, and some of them worked fine, some of them doesn't, because this error appeared. Then i tried to copy from my computer my first 10 songs that had this issue, and surprise ! IT WORKED ! So, all of you that didn't solve this, try replace all the music you have, or delete and copy the same songs and it will play very well !

    PS : The problem is in the files ! IF you modify the title it will not work ! Modify just the name !
