I have a Phillips mp 3 player and a bunch of file not supported downloads. how would i get them to play
If they aren't supported, they aren't supported. There's no way to get them to play. You're player ONLY plays MP3's, my guess is you've gotten some MP4's on there.
you'll need to convert them to the file format that is supported. Search online
you can convert them files to mp3 (or any supported files by the player) through free conversion soft wares available on the internet. And then put them in your player, it will work
You can get some video, audio tools for your problem, http://dvdvideosoft.com/
