Annoying mp3 issues

Postby philwil007 » Sat May 16, 2009 6:20 am

Does anyone have any information as to why the ps3 is stubborn about certain mp3 files? I have searched and found very little information as to why its so picky. I havent noticed any recurring theme as to bitrate etc. This has become an increasingly annoying issue for me. Until I started using "ps3 media server," I all but gave up on using the ps3 as a replacement for my media center pc. The program is the best i've tried hands down. Anyhow, now that I have dismantled my media center pc, I have found out that several of my music files will not play on the ps3. Any ideas would be appreciated. I appologize in advance if this has already been covered. THANKS!!


Specs:
Intel core2duo e6420 @ 2.8ghz
Asus p5ld2
4gb Corsair XMS2
nvidia 8400gs 256mb
XP Pro sp3
wired gigabit connection to ps3

Post a few outputs from MediaInfo (http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en) for a few of the MP3's that don't work... I haven't had any issues with playing my MP3's directly from the PS3 (whole collection is on there for in-game music purposes) except when there were issues with the actual transfer and the file got corrupted.
I provide NO application support via PM or email, so please post your question to the forum per the Forum Rules.
