Some of my mp3s are no longer audible on the pc when played either from the pc hard drive or an external hd on which I have a copy of all my music. All ypu can only hear is a jumble of sound. I connected ext hd to my laptop but had the same problem. The affected mp3s include ones which I ripped from my cds some years back. More recent music not affected. I dont remember dloading new codecs lately and dont want to mess with codecs until thats necessary. Help much appreciated.
Which media player are you using? Have you run chkdsk lately?
Tnx 4 reply. Using Win Media Player11 and Real Player. Both affected. Didnt run chdisk lately but tried System Restore, (O/S win Vista)
To rule out codecs, simply install another mp3 player. If the problem still exists for the new player, then you likely have corrupt files.
:)Thanks Dogg for reply. As it happens I installed VLC Player and hey presto problem solved. Keep up the good work
