Default Figuring out Bit Rates (Kbps) on the S50

In the Sirius S50 Manual it states the following:

The Sirius S50 is capable of playing MP3(64 kbps, 96 kbps, 128 kbps, 384 kbps ) and unrestricted WMA audio files as well as Sirius Radio Content.


I noticed when I transferred WMAs to the S50 that had a bit rate of 20kbps that the program played fine.... BUT when I transferred a WMA with a bit rate of 16kbps that program WOULD NOT play.

Here is the Audio Listing for 2 files I transferred. Both are WMA files:

Transfer 1: This transfer PLAYED on the S50

Bit Rate: 20 kbps
Audio Sample Size: 16 bit
Audio Sample Rate: 22 kHz

Transfer 2: This transfer DID NOT PLAY on the S50

Bit Rate: 16 kbps
Audio Sample Size: 16 bit
Audio Sample Rate: 16 kHz

If the S50 can play unrestricted WMA audio files , I dont understand why some of my transfers are not working. The ONLY difference in the two transfers above are that Transfer 1 has a Bit Rate of 20 kbps which works on the S50 and Transfer 2 has a Bit Rate of 16 kbps which does not play on the S50.

Does anyone know why this is? Can this be corrected, like can I somehow convert Transfer #2 to a different bit rate?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

what the hell are you talking about? 16KBPS? What did you record at that bit rate?

A wrestling audio show was recorded at that bit rate -16KBPS

I was trying to transfer it to my S50, but it wont play when I do that. I'll be honest with you, I dont know much about how Bit rates work. Can you explain to me why something that is 20KBPS plays on the S50 and why something that is 16 KBPS does not work on the S50? I really dont understand that process well.

Thanks
