    my vonage account sends me an email anytime I receive a voicemail at my home phone. I get the attachment in my email on my 750, it shows that it is associated with the media player, it even launches the windows media player when I try to listen to it, but it immediately tells me that that type of file is not supported. I tried saving the file to my minisd and then browsing to it, thinking that maybe it didn't like it as an email attachment. It still doesn't work. Tells me the type of file is not supported. This doesn't make any sense to me. transfer the file to my pc and it plays fine, so I know the file is not corrupted or anything. Any ideas anyone?

    I've had issues with some wav files myself.......its weird because i just have to uninstall and install them several times before they worked. I've yet to find out what the glitch was/is

    On my 700wx, when I have a wav attachment in an Outlook email, I click the link and a little bar appears with play, stop, etc buttons. Does the 750 not do this by default?

    It probably trying to play a .wav file that requires a certain codec that windows media player doesnt support. Try using tcmp or mvoice. That always worked for me in the past as I get my corporate voicemail fowarded to me as a .wav.

    No cost, TCPMP is free and will serve other media needs as well. I use it daily to check vmails.

    I did a quick google, found the wikipedia article and used the backup download. Easy as 1,2,3...Took a few minutes to find the file associations in the app, but otherwise, works great. Thanks for the tip.

    So I have i-tunes with the .wav plugin and TCPMP and neither will recognize or play wav files I receive as voice mail attachments. One thing is I am not sure either program knows where to look. These files are attachments to emails and I am not even sure where they reside on the Treo 700p, let alone direct i-tunes or TCPMP where to look.

    try saving the attachment and opening from inside TCPMP.

    Fastlerner: when in Versa Mail/Multi Mail/whatever, I hit the attachment in an effort to do something (like saving) and I get the message: "this is not a supported WAV file." I agree that if I were able to save it to some place that TCPMP could locate it, I would do and that might work. Any ideas on saving the atachment? (it does come as an attachment to email... somewhat new to this aspect and I am not sure how everyone else's voic mails come.)
    Thanks for any other suggestions.

    I had exactly the same problem with my voice mail messages that were sent to me as E-mail attachements in wav format. Pocket Player was the solution for me.

    I still can not save the file. When I click on it as an attachment to the mail, I get a message that it is not a supported wav file. Unable to save, I am unable to tell p-tunes or TCPMP , or I assume even Pocket player, where to look to play it.

    Did you set the file associations in TCPMP? By default, it leaves .wav associated with MediaPlayer.

    Open TCPMP and go to Options>Settings>Select_Page>File_Associations and scroll down to check "Windows waveform (WAV,RMP)".

    This should have your Treo directing all .wav playback to TCPMP.


    Funny though, for me it works the opposite way. My office voicemail system sends me a wave format that Mediaplayer will play, but TCPMP won't. Different codecs for different folks.

    Good luck.

    Well Fastlerner, you can write me off at this point if you want: My TCPMP doesn't have and Options/Settings etc. It is ver 0.72RC1. I just went and looked and there does not appear to be a newer version. Mine just has one optoin line opened thru the Treo menu button and the choices are open files/clear playlist/media info/benchmark/pref/equalizer/advanced options/tweaks/about. IN advanced ooptions, no choices like you talk about.
    Oh well.

    I'm also running TCPMP 0.72RC1. The menu you described is the FILE menu. On the bottom of the screen, right next to file, there should be "Options". Open that and go into Settings, from there click the right soft-menu for "Select Page" and you'll find File Associations.

    As for saving attachments, you have to "right click" to get the "Save As" option. On Windows Mobile, the equivalent of the right-click is found by hold the stylus down on the object in question. Or with the navigation keys, move the highlight to the object (in this case the attachment) and hold down the center navigation key until the menu pops up.

    This is true pretty much everywhere as this is an OS function just like the right click on the mouse.

    Son-of-a-gun. Call me blind, but there is no such thing on my TCPMP. Only File menu at top left of screen, drop down file has the things I mentioned. Bottom of screen has the standard rewind/play FF/Full/Pref screen. No options.
    Oh well, now the good news: Per your suggestion (I have a Treo 700p, so don't know what diff that is,) but I held my stylus down on the attachment waiting to see what would happen. Next thing I know, screen says "converting" Then (from whence I do not know) a screen appeared stating at the top of the screen "Wav Player" with the standard play/pause at bottom and sure enuf, it played my voice mail.
    Don't know how it worked , but why does it take such aggravation, search (and bothering you) to find out how to do what ended up being so simple.

    I had assumed since you had a 750 since you were posting in the 750 forums.

    The difference is that you're on a completely different Operating System. The 750 runs Windows Mobile, while the 700 uses Palm OS. So naturally, the tcpmp build would be different too.

    Glad the stylus trick worked.
