Can't stream some .mp3's

Postby Russcm2 » Tue Apr 21, 2009 10:45 pm

I have a huge collection of mp3's and for some reason I get the error: "the data type is not supported" on some of them. A lot of mp3's work fine though. If i click triangle and go to information on the file that won't play, it looks exactly like all the other mp3's that play just fine. They all play perfect on my desktop. I have tried all 3 audio settings in the "audio files engines" section in Ps3MediaServer.

Any ideas? I'd really appreciate some help.

the ps3 does not play all kinds of mp3s out there (I have met one or two myself)
try to copy it on an USB stick to see if the streaming part is implied
