Resolved Question

Why can I not play music from my SD card ?

by Papaumau / December 29, 2011 9:35 PM PST

I have successfully synced via the Kies software to my new Galaxy Ace GTS5830 so as to send part of my music library from my PC to my phone. These files show in the "My Files" icon, ( the SD media-card ), but will not play from there. ( I get an "open-file" warning that "No application can perform this action ).

I did however find an owner with "their music" in FLAC or OGG format and that didn't work. Sadly they were unwilling to change and we are waiting for the world to revolve around them.

Sorry I can't guess why in this case.

I was more a sounding board to bounce some ideas around. Yes I'm working on some Android stuff but far from an expert on that system.
