    Problems with voice files on Nokia 6600

    I'm trying to play voice sound files on a Nokia 6600 and I'm finding that some files only play partially and are truncated. This seems to apply to any file formats that are compressed to any reasonable degree (e.g. ADPCM or GSM 06.10 wavs; AMR; AMR-WB), but different files fail for different formats. Has anyone experienced anything similar? Any suggestions?

    Maybe the problem is related to

    http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/fo...threadid=43427

    where I report truncation of short WAV format samples (one second, 8-bit, 22 kHz) on the Nokia 6600.

    Yes, it sounds like a similar problem. I understand there's a new version of the firmware due soon, so it will be interesting to see if this behaviour is still seen with the new version.

    Hi,

    Could be something to do with the fact that the max. digital-to-analog sampling conversion provided by the 6600 is 16 kHz.

    16 kHz works!?

    Indeed using 16 kHz fixes the problem!! Thanks!

    So apparently there is a bug in the automatic
    sample rate conversion of the Nokia 6600 (if
    there is any!), as I also had very bad results
    with 11025 Hz. Sample rate conversion may result
    in some loss of sound quality, but not in timing
    differences. My firmware is v4.09.1, so I hope
    the next firmware upgrade will ensure proper
    sample rate conversion, because that is something
    that the low level audio driver should take care
    of. So basically I am for now forced to choose a
    16 kHz sample rate? I tried 8 kHz thinking that
    it would not cause sample truncation, but there
    too I found incomplete sounds. It all looks like
    the Nokia 6600 sound buffering/timing goes wrong
    with most sound formats and short sound samples.
    Only the 16 kHz seems to work correctly so far.

    Indeed I now read in

    Of course, any sample rate conversion and aliasing
    issues should never lead to changes in sound duration,
    so there is still a bug in that area.

    I have written an application under Nokia 6600 that generate PCM output at 16k sampling rate. I have configured the audio output stream to accept 16k data by writting

    SetAudioPropertiesL(TMdaAudioDataSettings::ESampleRate16000Hz,
    TMdaAudioDataSettings::EChannelsMono));

    But I found that it accept 8k sampling rate instead.
    Any idea on it?

    Thanks,
