why does the p3 not play wav audio??
 
hi..

i have some wav files and donīt want to convert them to put them on my p3...

samsung says that the p3 plays wav but my p3 doesnīt ...:confused:

my wav files are in CD format, what means:
44100hz sampling rate
16 bit
1411 kbit/s
2 Channels (Stereo)

does someone here has an idea why it doesnīt work???

Iīm using FW version 2.22 (the latest one)

i donīt want to convert them because i donīt want to spend time on things i donīt need to do....

itīs easier to put them on my p3 than to convert them in "whatever format"

but why does samsung says the p3 plays wav and it doesnīt ???:mad:

+1....it wouldn't take more than a couple of minutes to convert it....if you must have lossless, then convert it to FLAC.....easy as pie. Of course, it would have made more sense to rip it to FLAC to begin with.;)

Carsten 05-08-2011 02:41 PM

ok..

i just converted them to wma lossless all worked..

i even wonder why the p3 donīt play wav even though the p3 "can" play wav as samsung says....

No, this format is not officially supported by the P3.
I don't know where you read it plays WAV files but it's just a mistake.

Both the abi review and the samsung page say that the P3 plays WAV files.

Actually WAV is not officially supported because some WAV files work (I tried several ones) and others won't.
Maybe that doesn't change anything for you but that changes many things for Samsung, particularly for the Quality department.

The Samsung page says
Quote:

Supports MP3, WMA, Ogg, AAC, FLAC, ASF
Are any of the other formats only partially supported?

ok..

i found it on many pages here like chip.de and a german site like testberichte.de
i found it there 1 year ago ...
i donīt looked it up now but...iīve converted them and it worked..

wma lossless is official not supported but workes great...

In the time it took you to write that you could have converted about 5 WAV files.
