If you were trying to upload files, like music onto your phone, it probably means it can't read the file. That will happen with mp4s (i tunes files).

What ever media you are trying to watch on your phone it is not supported. Meaning, the file type that the video or whatever you are trying to watch is being sent to you in your phone does not have the ability to decipher it. So simply, you cannot watch it.

Whatever file you are trying to open cannot be opened on your phone. It is not capable of being viewed or listened to on your phone. It is not compatable with your phone.

It simply means that what ever you are trying to look at or play is not a file that your phone recognizes.

This typically caused when you are trying to play a format on a phone that cannot handle it. Make sure the file extension is of a format the phone can play. Otherwise it will need to be converted using a converter program.

It means that a media file (audio or video) cannot be played back on the phone, you need to convert it with a PC or Mac to a supported format.


Answer by  Amber40 (24961)

That sounds like a generic error message mean whatever type of file you are trying to play is not supported by your phone. Look in your manual to see what file types are supported and then convert the file to one of those.

There are various types of mobiles in which various format are supported. For example your phone supports JPEG images or 3gp videos, where as other mobile phone might not support the format which your trying to preview, so that is the reason your getting error message while retrieving the content.
