View Full Version : mp3 ringtone error with 8700c - chirping sound

Hello everyone!

I am experiencing a strange problem with my new Blackberry 8700c. I have uploaded small mp3s to my personal server and downloaded them without a problem. They download and play with ease.

When I try to download larger files, instead of hearing the song, I hear two chirps or clicks, and then nothing.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a size limit for mp3 ringtones?

If so, does anyone know how to cilp the size of an mp3 with ease?

Thank you in advance for your help!

Best wishes,

I have also come across this chirping noise recently after I made a few ringtones and put them up on that coolservice download site.

I have no clue where it comes from though.

I have experienced this problem as well. I downloaded about 3 .mp3 ringtones that were 300k+ and they all worked fine. Then I uploaded two ringtones to a personal file server and I get that strange clicking and chirping noise on my BB. When I go back and try to download a ringtone from the other site they work fine. I think it might be a problem with the personal file server. I used Tripod.com to host the mp3... has anyone else had a problem?

I had the same problem with certain MP3 files. I discovered that if the channel mode was stereo it only chirps when I download it and try to play it. I used dBpowerAMP to convert the file to mono and now I can play the file.
