MP3 Files don't work properly

by PJenks / December 27, 2007 8:41 AM PST

I have converted music files to MP3 and put on 3 different devices and they all do not play correctly on the players, but they sound fine when listening on the computer. The players are a Sansa & Phillips MP3 player and a Poloroid digital photo frame that plays MP3 files. The music kind of "skips". I have been using Microsoft Plus Audio converter. What is the problem? Please help!

You mentioned that all players do not play VBR files, and to get them in CBR format. How is that done? I do not have an I-Pod.

Try google.com and something like HOW DO I CONVERT VBR MP3 FILES TO CBR?

Here I might use LAME or such. It matters on which machine I use. As to iPod, you can also use iTunes without one to burn the file to CDR and rip it back with CDEX or other. Too many answers but the one is the one you like.
