Default MP3 Track Time

Please Login to Remove!

Im having an issue with the track time on music tracks not being correct and leaving long gaps between the end of the song and the time it switchs to the next. For example, the song is 2:38 long, the blackberry says its 5:42 seconds long and after the 2:38 when the music stops its just silence. I tested the MP3s on serveral devices including a Sony Clie, an Sandisk MP3 player, and windows media player 10, none which produce incorrect times or ackward silence. I just upgraded to the pearl from my 7105T, The only reason I upgraded is because of the fact the pearl plays MP3s and I can convert my DVD movies and play them while im on the 2 hour train ride to work. I am running OS V4.2.0.64, I do not have the microsd card upgrade yet to test the movie portion out but I have gotten 23 MP3s compressed on to the BB (32 KBPS). I tryed different compression rates and still got the same result. Is anyone else having this issue?

Weird! Never seen anything like that. I'm also running 4.2.0.64 and use a 2GB Sandisk miniSD ,,, have approx 550 MP3 loaded.

Have you loaded any MP3s @ 64kbps or 128kbps just as a "test"? Wondering if the unusual size is "confusing" the Media Player???

No issues here ... LOVING MY PEARL

I was having this issue when I loaded compressed MP3s to my SD card, when I loaded the same MP3s but uncompressed, the time issue was gone.

Yeah, that's the same thing that happened to mine. I never really paid attention to it though because although it said the wrong time there, there were never any real gaps or long pauses in the end. Once the song was over, it would just go to the next.

I tryed 32,96,128,170,190,220,and 320 kbps and still get the same issue. I borrowed my friends media card and its doing it with movies aswell. It said Pirates of the Carribean was 256 hours long. Also noticed when I hide the player while its still playing the devices clock goes threw about 1 year in 10 seconds.

Yow ... sounds like exchanging your Pearl for a new one may be warranted. Where did you buy yours?

Well when my 8th 7105T caught fire (mind you not all caught fire but the last one did, the rest the keys fell off or the OS failed) Assurian upgraded me to the Pear for freel after i threatened to follow the Texas state lemon laws. T-mobile support doesn't think it warrants a new phone and theres now a trouble ticket on it.
