    Sample rate

    YES! This is a great suggestion! I have had similar issues with my player not being able to read a track's SAMPLE RATE.
    Many players (most, if not all DJ media) like the 44.1KHz sample rate.

    Right click your audio file - select PROPERTIES - and then AUDIO PROPERTIES.
    Should look something like this:



    If it is reading at a sample rate of 32 or 48 KHz then it may not be able to read it and you may want to get an audio converter to modify that. (I use dBpoweramp).
    Unforgiving, unrelenting, unrecoverable double beats!

    You can check it in an mp3 tagging program (like mp3tag). Should be a Frequency column that displays it. If you need to change the frequency, you can use a program like Audacity (export audio) with the 44000 frequency.

    Variable Bit Rate encoding (VBR) is definitely something to check. Lots of older players could only handle Constant Bit Rate (CBR) encoded tracks.

    I wouldn't think tagging would stop the playback. The times I ran into problems, the track would play, but no info.would be displayed.

    I wonder if 32 bit floating bit-depth like the one in the graphic would be supported. It's usually 16bits. I didn't know above 24 bits were supported by MP3s.

    Something else to check is the length of the filename. I remember being limited to something like 32 characters. Test with a copy of the track that's just 1 letter (i.e. a.mp3).

    There were times I just opened up the track in Audacity and resaved it as an MP3. That also fixed a number of words things too.

    Happens to me too sometimes. I change the file format when that happens. There are free apps for that.
