    Ever since Nokia updated their music app earlier this month files that I have ripped from youtube will not play. Any reason for this? They are .mp3 and not illegal files so I am confused

    Ive gone through everything except formatting the phone.

    I have tried to use a different ripper
    restarted
    reinstalled the app
    changed song formats

    Worked just fine before the update

    Did you try to rename it ? (to move to computer first, then rename it and move it back with a different name)

    Yep, it seems the problem is strictly with ripping the audio from youtube. Ive tried all kinds of files from youtube and none of them work. They are .mp3 so I am not sure what the problem is.

    Thank you for that suggestion but it did not work either. I went into the file ID through winamp and changed up the info in there and that seemed to work. Not sure why it is working now, the file should play regardless *shrug*

    You was right - there was a bug in a previous update - mp3 without tags did not play properly, but it is fixed in a last update ...

    I add always tags for my mp3 songs, so that's why I did not have this problem ...
