Solved: See last post

Running Cleanrom ACE 4.5 wiping caches, factory reset and Wiping SYSTEM (could this have anything to do with it?)
Everything appears to be working fine.
Tried to play my mp3 un-protected files with 4 or 5 music players (including the stock google music player) and I get "The player does not support this type of audio file"
Tried clearing data/cash for each player, no luck.

Mp3's have played before but have not played in awhile and now they will not play.

Any one else having this problem or have a solution?

Thanks!

Try 'fix permission' in custom recovery. Easy fix.

Good idea but did not fix it. There is a switch off or a codec missing. I also discovered it will not play .wma files either.

You probably had bad flash then. Have you tried to redownload and reflash?

Yes, afraid so...
I've flashed Beans, Clear Rom, went back to stock...all several times without it being able to recognize mp3 files.

Solved! I found I had an mp3 ringtone on my sdcard0 that played okay...mmmm.
After lots of testing I found that for some unknown reason my Music folder on my extsdcard was corrupted. That's why they kept failing to play through lots of flashing and even going back to stock...duh. I deleted the music folder and all the files, did a chkdisk on my computer, re-copied mp3 files back to a new Music folder and all working now.
Bottom line, unexplained activity, after doing logical checks suspect the extsdcard!!
