Hi! Please download and install the Ubuntu Restricted Extras. You can do it in
A. the Ubuntu Software Center
  1. click Applications > Ubuntu Software Center
  2. search for Ubuntu Restricted Extras
  3. Install
B. the Terminal
  1. open a Terminal
  2. type sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

Once you installed it, see if the mp3s you have plays on Rhythmbox or whatever music player you have.

Can you help with this problem?
