  • Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi - WMA audio files will not play

    • WMA files are proprietary Windows files and are not currently compatible with the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi. We recommend you convert your WMA files to MP3 or download third party applications from Android market that will allow you to play WMA files.

      While we do not endorse or guarantee these solutions, or provide support for them, some owners have reported success using a 3rd party Android Application like "PowerAMP".  You can search the Android Market for 3rd party applications that are available that will enable you to play WMA files.

      Convert WMA files using iTunes

      If you have favorite audio files in the WMA format, you might consider converting them into MP3s. WMA files are proprietary Windows files and are not currently compatible with the Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi.But MP3 files are not proprietary and do not have the same constraints. They work with most computers and players. Converting files using Apple's free iTunes software can be accomplished in minutes.


      1. Download the latest version of iTunes if you do not already have it on your computer. This is a free application that can be downloaded from http://www.apple.com/itunes.

      2. Install and set up iTunes by following all the prompts.

      3. Click Edit and select Preferences > Import Settings

      4. Select MP3 Encoder from the Import settings drop down and click OK

      5. Click File Add File to Library and select the WMA File you wish to convert to MP3.

      6. Click Open and Click Convert

      7. Your WMA File will be converted to MP3

      When you convert your file to MP3, iTunes will make a copy of the file and will not replace the file. Therefore, you will have two versions of the file, one that is the original WMA file and the other that is an MP3.

      To transfer files from your computer to your Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi:

      From your iTunes library, ensure the file you converted is highlighted and click File and select Show in windows explorer

  • Troubleshooting Home Sharing

    • Symptoms

      Learn what you can do if, after setting up Home Sharing, you cannot access your shared iTunes library over your home network from another computer, Apple TV, or iOS device.

      Note: For general information on Home Sharing, see Understanding Home Sharing.

      Products Affected

      Apple TV (2nd generation), Remote app, iPod touch, iTunes, iPhone, iPad

      Resolution

      Collapse All Sections | Expand All Sections


      1. Set up Home Sharing on all devices

      If you need help setting up Home Sharing, use the articles below. Read the articles for the devices or computers you are trying to use with Home Sharing:

      2. Verify system requirements

      Home Sharing requires a computer using the latest version of iTunes,* and one or more of the following devices on the same home network:

      3. Check your Apple ID

      Home Sharing requires all computers, iOS devices, and Apple TVs (2nd generation) to use the same Apple ID.

      To verify your intended Apple ID is enabeled on all of your devices:

      1. On Apple TV, navigate to Settings > Computers and look in the bottom left.
      2. On your iPhone or iPad, navigate to Settings > iPod. (On your iPod touch, navigate to Settings >Music).
        Settings > Music on iPod touch running iOS 4.3.x
      3. On your computer, open iTunes. Choose the Advanced menu and scroll down to the option to Turn off Home Sharing (Apple ID)
        Advanced > Turn off Home Sharing (Apple ID) in iTunes 10.1 or later
      4. If you don't have the option to "Turn off Home Sharing (Apple ID):"
        1. Choose Advanced > Turn on Home Sharing in iTunes.
        2. When prompted, enter the Apple ID you'd lke to use.
        3. Click Create Home Share.
          Where to enter your Apple ID and the Create Home Share button in iTunes

      A maximum of five computers can use Home Sharing at one time. If this limit has been reached and you want to add a new Home Share, deauthorize one or more computers by choosing Deauthorize Computer from the Store menu in iTunes. For more information about authorization and deauthorization, see About iTunes Store authorization and deauthorization.

      4. Check your network connection

      Home Sharing requires a home network with an active Internet connection. All the devices you want to use with Home Sharing need to be connected to your home network.

      In addition, verify that:
      • All your devices are connected to the same router, if you have multiple routers. Using multiple routers may prevent discovery between these devices.
      • Your devices are not using a Virtual Private Network (VPN), or that they are all on the same VPN. A VPN may isolate the device and cause connectivity disruptions.
      • If you have a router set up with a guest network, make sure all devices are either connected to the guest network and devices on the guest network are allowed to communicate with each other, or switch all devices to the primary network on your router.
      • If your computer is asleep or shutdown, or iTunes is closed, there's no access to the shared iTunes library. Wake up or start the computer and open iTunes to regain access to that library.
      • Your router needs to be up-to-date. If you are using an AirPort or Time Capsule, read this article to find out more about firmware updates. If you are using a router from another manufacturer, contact the manufacturer to inquire about available updates.

      5. Check Firewall Settings

      If you have a firewall enabled in your router or computer, make sure that the firewall is not blocking communication between your computers. Home Sharing uses TCP port 3689 and UDP port 5353 to communicate with shared iTunes libraries.

      In addition, Apple TV and Mac computers will use port 123 to set the time automatically. Incorrect date and time on either the computer or Apple TV can cause errors for Home Sharing and connections in general.

      If you are unsure whether your router has a firewall or the required ports open, test additional devices or another network to help isolate the issue. If the devices tested work on another home network, it is your router or network configuration.

      For Mac OS X, you don't have to edit the port addresses, but make sure the firewall in Apple () menu > System Preferences > Security > Firewall are not set to:

      • Block all incoming connections
      • Allow only essential services

      If you use another security/firewall software on your computer or router, follow this article or contact the manufactureror check the documentation on how to open TCP ports 123 and 3689 as well as UDP ports 123 and 5353.

      6. Quit and reopen apps and iTunes

      If connectivity issues persist, quit and reopen iTunes on your computer. Then quit and reopen the apps on your iOS device.

      7. Restart your network router

      Restart your home network router using the method recommended in documentation from the manufacturer. This may include disconnecting the power cord for thirty seconds or more.

      Note: During this period, Internet services such as a VoIP-based phone will not work, and any additional routers may need to be reset in sequence.

  • MobileMe: Troubleshooting Push with MobileMe Mail on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

    • Symptoms

      With MobileMe Mail, your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch receives alerts in real-time when you have a new me.com or mac.com email message in your Inbox.  

      If your device does not update with an alert when you expect to receive a message, try the troubleshooting steps in this article.

      Products Affected

      iPhone, iPod touch, MobileMe Mail, iPad

      Resolution

      1. Make sure you have access to the Internet: Open Safari on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, and make sure you can load a webpage, such as www.apple.com.
      2. Verify that you can receive email for your MobileMe account on your Mac or PC; for example, in Mac OS X open Mail and make sure you are able to receive messages as expected.
      3. Make sure that your MobileMe mail account is enabled, Push is enabled on your device, and Push is enabled for your account:

      Collapse All Sections | Expand All Sections

      Ensure mail is enabled for your account

      Ensure Push is enabled on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

      Ensure Push is selected for your MobileMe account's mail

       

      1. Turn your device off and on, and then try again.
      2. If the issue persists, turn off all the sliders mentioned about in step 3, then turn them back on again and try again.
      3. If you have multiple MobileMe accounts set up on your device, Push will only work for one account.  If you want to switch which account uses Push, you will need to turn on contact, calendars, or bookmark syncing for that account, then enable Push.
      4. If you have iOS 4.1, confirm your device is successfully connected to MobileMe by using Find My iPhone to see if your device is online. If it isn't online, there may be a broader MobileMe notifications service disruption. Check the System Status on the MobileMe Support web site.
      5. If the other steps do not help, delete the account from your device.  From the Home screen, tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, and Calendars, and then tap your MobileMe account (if syncing Contacts, Calendar, or Bookmark data with MobileMe, choose to keep the data on your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch when prompted). Tap Delete Account. On the Mail, Contacts, and Calendars screen, tap Add Account > MobileMe, and set up your account again. If you are syncing data with MobileMe on your device, choose to Merge data on your device when prompted to do so after adding your account.

      Welcome to Inside BlackBerry® Help Blog, Research In Motion’s BlackBerry smartphone support blog and the newest edition to the Inside BlackBerry blog family!

      You’ve probably seen us (or our work) around in spaces such as the BlackBerry Support Community Forums@BlackBerryHelp on Twitter, and the Official BlackBerry® Channel on YouTube™. We’ve loved being engaged with the community through these channels (and will continue to do so!) and hope we have helped many of you out along way.

      Through this support blog we feel we can add a little extra to the community by sharing knowledge and tips… before you even have to ask!

      What this blog is about

      We’ve assembled some of our best technical support experts to provide tips and tricks, go in depth on features and show you how it all works.

      But we know this blog isn’t just about us and our perspectives – it’s about YOU and what you need to know to get the most out of your BlackBerry smartphone. Be sure to join in the conversation and get connected with the great information being shared online!

      What this blog isn’t about

      We’re excited to continue to contribute to the conversation, but that said, this isn’t the place to discuss topics like unreleased products, financial and forward-looking statements, service outages or carrier matters. Besides, these are matters where our topic experts aren’t, well, the experts.

      Let us know what’s working and what’s not. See our Comments Policy, and you can also suggest a topicyou’d like to see discussed.
