I had lots of music in my galaxy s2 phone memory and then moved it all over to the sd card when I bought one. Now when I open up the music player (the standard one that came bundled up with the phone) I get 2 of every track when I open up an album, one track plays and the other one gets the message " the player does not support this type of file". I have completely deleted the whole music folder from the phone memory so where is the phone finding these duplicate files that will not play and how do I get rid of them
I am new to this forum and the Samsung Galaxy S2. When I download anything from my PC onto the phone it goes straight into My Files. I cannot then get anything in My Files to save to a ringtone or notification?
Every time I connect my Samsung Galaxy S5 to my iMac, I get a message that it cannot locate the device. The cable is good, I use it to charge my S5, and it works just fine. How to move files from iTunes to my Galaxy S 5?
I have an SIII but no one seems to be viewing those forums so I thought I would ask here. I've always stored my music in folders sorted by artist and never bothered with tagging as long as the file names started with numbers. I have over 300 gigs in music so I'm not about to start tagging now. my 32 gig sd card has 4500 music files.The music player doesn't play nice with my sorting - artist view winds up showing the same artists 10 times or sorts out compiltation albums while folder view has every single album (300-400 or so) sorted alphabetically.
I would like to go into the external sd card and play directly from there. I can do that, but only a single track will play and you can't use any other apps or browse when the track plays. Am I stupid or something?This is the main reason why I've always used Cowon music players or my sansa clip, I can simply go into folders and play. I have media monkey and love it but even there I use the folder directory.
I bought my Galaxy S2 on the 21st of July from Carphone Warehouse on a new contract (Panther 30). I've been with Orange for a few years now but it was time for an upgrade.Ever since I've had the phone, I recieve duplicate txt messages from anyone who txts me. It could be Iphone users, Blackberry users, other networks, you name it. I even get multiple txt messages from competetions (you know, when you try win all that gear on The Gadget Show and they send a conformation txt acknowledging your entry). I can recieve up to 5-6 of the same txt message throughout the day (they usually come in quite quickly) and I can even get them days after me first recieveing the original.I went back to Carphone Warehouse for their help but they suggested I rang Orange first to find out if it was a network problem or handset issue.Orange were useless at first but then I got through to technical support team 2. An action was opened and so we tried different solutions.
1. Factory reset of the handset. Didn't work.
2. Put my SIM card into another phone (Samsung D500). Suprisingly this worked and I didn't recieve any duplicates the whole day, which indicated it was indeed a handset problem. We agreed that I should go back to Carphone Warehouse and get a new handset but if the problem continued then I should get back in contact with the same chap in techincal support team 2.
3. Went off to Carphone Warehouse. Got the new handset. Unfortunatly the problem remained. It actually got much worse!
4. Got back in contact with the chap at Orange and he could see on his system that there were error codes and that the recieved txt messages weren't recognized at being recieved, therefore would be sent again and again. All the information we had was sent off the tech boffins at Orange to see if they could think of a solution.
5. Finally Orange came back with an answer, which was that I should try a new SIM card (register it and everything). So they sent one, which has only arrived this morning (took 8days). I've recieved the Orange txt that should come within 24hours and then deleted it and turned the phone off. BUT NO! This hasn't worked either. I've already recieved duplicate txt messages from someone. Three of one, and two of another txt.
I usually have 3bars to full signal where I am so it's not as though poor signal is causing this. Everyone else in the house is on Orange too and doesn't have this same problem. I never did either on my old Nokia 5800. It doesn't just happen at home though. I could be anywhere.
Signal strength (right now), -83dBm 15asu Mobile network, GPRS (there is no 3G around us so I turned it off). Model number, GT-I9100 Android version, 2.3.3 Baseband version, I9100XXKE4 Kernel version, 22.214.171.124-I9100XWKE7-CL215725root@DELL103 #2 Build number GINGERBREAD.XWKE7
I wonder if anyone here knows how to load standard subtitles files (.srt) while playing video files (like .avi) on my SGS2. There's an idle "Subtitles" button on the bottom right of the player's menu, which I hadn't been able to use. Should I try a different one from the Android market?
I have all of my music uploaded to Google Play. I have about 30 of those same albums on my phone's memory card also so that I can have music if I don't have data or want to save bandwidth. The problem is that the albums that are also on my phone show up twice in the the Play Music app on my phone. I have tried doing a refresh in the app and have also tried clearing cache and data with no effect.
I am trying to get my Jabra Freeway to operate correctly with my SGSII.Although in my list of contacts on my phone I have configured the settings to only show one set of contacts, (the ones I sync with google) my Jabra Freeway sees the other two sets of contacts. The ones on my sim card and the ones (I think) on my phone).How can I get rid of the sim and phone contacts but just keep the ones synced with Google so that when I try and make a voice operated call via my Jabra Freeway, I am not told I have 3 contacts with the name I want to call.
Ok, so when I am in the compose message view I start typing a name to send a message to and the phone shows me all numbers for that contact, even if I deleted that number... for example say my contact Lewis upgrades and gets a new number, I edit his contact, deleting the old number and replacing it with the new. Then when I type LEW into the compose message "to" section it shows all numbers ever stored under that name, if you know what I mean..? So i am typing someones name getting multiple numbers even if they only have 1 number to there name.This also seems to be the case if someone registers a number to FB and I overwrite that number with a new number
So now I want to try hiemdall as I am told it is much more reliable.
I have downloaded Heimdall 1.3.1 for windows 7 32bit. I want to flash the litening rom but when I extract the tar the files that I get are:
Factory fs, disc image file Modem.bin, BIN file zimage, file (type just says file)
When I try to put factoryfs in that partition heimdall comes up with a message that it expects a rts file.? Modem is pretty straight forward, but what kind of file is the zimage is it an actual zimage file to go into that partition or does it go somewhere else?
I'm trying to listen to a radio broadcast via the Australian Football League's website (url..)When I click the radio station button the browser displays a message to either install Microsoft Silverlight or open the link in the default media player.Selecting the media player option then brings up options to open using either the Video Player or the Internet.If I select Video Player a message is displayed "UNABLE TO PLAY VIDEO".If I select Internet an ASF file is downloaded. If I click on the file, the Video Player is opened and a message is displayed "UNSUPPORTED FILE TYPE"
just wondering where the APK files are stored on the SGSii when you download them from the AM. You see I have Amazon Mobile on my phone but my Galaxy 10.1 tab can't seem to get it in the AM.I was going to have a go at copying the APK across and seeing if I could get it to install that way but obviously need to know where to find them first. I am rooted and have root explorer.
I just can't send emails with attached files. Not ir Email app not it GMAIL app. No matter the size of the file.
I go to the out tray in Email app, and displays a button: Send messages. I click it, it goes "Sending messages..." Then back to the square one. No error message, no nothing. The same with the gMAIL app just that there is no button, just stays in the out tray. However when I forward an email with attached content it would send alright, but no if I attach the file myself, or "Insert" from gallery.
I tried playing a sample in my galaxy s2 that i just got. I was surprised to see that there was no audio on it. The video is awsome. There is no audio on speaker or on headset or with a 5.1 head set. get the audio on hd files.
I have some mkv videos that are 10gb-15gb and I want to put them on my 16gb sdhc cards to play on my galaxy s2 with my new mhl adapter, but fat 32 will only allow files upto 4gb, and when I format to NTFS the card is unreadable by my galaxy s2.
I have mp4 video files in my mobile. It plays perfect when I play it after copying it from the PC. fter couple of hours or so when I try to play the file second time, its not playing, I am getting blank(black) screen, when I try to scroll it or fwd it, I can see that the file is getting stuck.I can play the files once again after rebooting my phone each time. initially suspect that the issue could be with the video file, but experienced the issue with mutliple files which I copied.
