I cant be sure, but from memory, I dont think that the media player will recognize Windows Media Audio (WMA) files. To avoid issues like this, I always stick with MP3 when ripping music.

As far as I know, third party manufacturers need to get a license from Microsoft if they want to have their players WMA compatible.

I think compufunk is correct. Would be the same with WMV files as well.
Also DivX will not play on my 7000S for the same reason (I don't have 800 so I am not sure if DivX plays or not)

Thanks to you both
That sounds about right I will convert a file
and try it again tonight if I get time that would be
why the media player does not know the files
