    Question 8703e - 4.2 - .wav not playing

    Advertisement



    i moved over, through media manager, a couple of wav files. when i open them, i get this:

    unable to display file /device memory/home/user/ringtones/message.wav

    i just upgraded to 4.2 today.

    when i try to play it from an email, i get "unknown error"

    ideas

    ideas anyone?

    just to verify, should a wav file play on my verizon 8703e?

    You cannot play .wav files only .mp3. the only .wav files you can play is the preloaded tones in the phone.

    When you transfered the files via media manager, did you choose to "optimize for device"? In other words did you let media manager convert the files for playback?

    doughdaddy, not sure how I transfered them. that was really just a test to see if it supported native wav files. looks like it doesn't. i want to be able to open voicemails, which doesn't look like an option. how absurd!

    It does support .wav not .wmv, I get voice mails emailed to me from both Vonage (house phone) and YouMail (BB voicemail) as .wav files and they play in the media player. If they still don't work try doing the battery pull or updating your OS to the latest to see if that helps.

    And yes, I am on an 8130 with 4.3 but my previous BB was an 8703e with 4.2
