Very irrelevant Q sorry, but my dad has a new phone which plays MP3's. he's downloaded software onto his PC and uploaded 2 Cd's of music, but cant make them play on the phone as they appear to be 'locked' with a symbol beside them. I'm not with him so cant see, and have never used my mobile for music, but perhaps someone on here knows a fix?

i would assume and this is from never having done it before that maybe your dad actually bought the music from the Itunes network. Which may lock the files. Ie no copy no joy. Try getting bootlegs of the same songs and seeing if that works..
I have a fancy phone that can play music and stuff but why bother when the world sounds so.. well so.

I had file format issues with a new Telecom phone recently. It claimed to be able to understand mpeg4 but they would not play at all.
Eventually, I found a freeware program which converts movies to mobile-friendly format. Click here: (I use the top one for making mobile phone showreels)
