Did you install the proprietary drivers using Automatix (http://www.getautomatix.com/) or EasyUbuntu(http://easyubuntu.freecontrib.org/)? MP3 support doesn't come out of the box.

It's much more preferable to install mp3 support using the information at https://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/desktopguide/C/codecs.html

Pascal de Bruijn (pmjdebruijn) said : #3

Indeed, refrain from using automatix and easyubuntu is you can

May I point you here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats

The Wiki is a great source of information. May I advise you use it.

Can you help with this problem?
