Windows Media Player on Pocket PC - Help?

It could be because the MP3 files are higher bitrate than is recommended on
Pocket PC however you can manually enable a setting to play these files.
With regards to video the only video format supported is wmv, if you want to
play mpeg or other formats you will need to use a third-party media player
such as http://www.mpegtv.com/wince/pockettv/.

To enable playing high bit-rate MP3's open Windows Media Player

Tap Tools > Settings > Audio & Video

Where it says "Play Unsupported Files" change the options in the drop down
lists to "Yes".
