I have a nokia 6265.  I have a selection of .mp3 on my laptop.  when i copy them onto the phone some of them will not play and i get a message that says "file format not supported", the same problems prevents me from converting them to the ACC format, then copying them.

any ideas appreciated as I cant work out what the difference may be.

Do you mean AAC instead of ACC?

Perhaps your files are lossless, or variable bit rate, or some weird mutation of MP3? Or too high a bitrate? It wouldnt surprise me if the phone couldnt handle some specs of Mp3.

Try putting the offenders into a folder, then use detail view to try and find a common unusual thread between them?

Hi Tony, I have had a look at the 'properties' of the files and cant find anything consistant that would indicate what the problem might be.
