...The rate of encoding means nothing when you play it back, it only means
disc was "written" at that speed (which translates into how much time it
took to write the disc)....
A compressed audio format that is popular for downloading across the
internet and for use with memory-based audio players. Files may be recorded
on CD-R or CD-RW media for playback in compatible DVD players, audio CD
players, and CD-ROM drives. Files are usually named as "*.mp3". Sound
quality varies as a function of the recording/encoding bit rate. In our
opinion, anything recorded with less than 128 kbps data rate will sound
The recording bit rate ( or in the music world sampleing rate) has to do
with the way the sound is compressed and played back. with a rate of 128
the player must convert the digital information back into analog for the
sound to be sent to the speaker. Many players have the ability to convert
all of the standard rates, some do not.
You may want to check you facts before you open your mouth and make yourself
look like a fool.....
What may be going on is that the player is trying to "play" the Mp3 as a cda
(cd audio, the native format for commerical CD'S). This I have seen happen
more than once..........
if this is the case you can add a rf modulated cd/mp3 player or a Mp3 player
harddrive system to your current system....
