    A friend of mine gave me an mp3 file he recorded at a football game and I want to upload it to my 700p. It is an mp3 file at 196kbps. It also plays fine on my computer.

    I tried using Windows media player, but it says that Windows media can't convert the file to the format needed for the handheld.

    I also tried the installer, but it says that the file is an incompatible handheld file.

    PC-tunes, however, seem to play my other MP3 files, so if I can get it to the device, it might play.

    Does anyone know why is this file labeled an incompatible handheld file that I can't even download to the handheld? That is, what is meant by "incompatible handheld file?"

    its possible that either the file is protected or corrupt.

    My guess is the file is corrupt. There is a freeware program called mp3trim (google search). It will rewrite the headers on the file. Just use the program to re-write the mp3 (don't need to trim anything). It will rewrite the header of the file. Should solve the problem.
