MP3 songs play too fast or too slow

The issue with fast or slow playing MP3 songs is due to the way the MP3 file was originally encoded.

The MP3 player on the LeapPad/LeapPad2 supports MP3 files with sample rates of 44.1, 32, 16 or 8 KHz.

44.1 KHz is the standard CD sample rate. If your MP3 file was encoded with a different sample rate, the playback of the song will be distorted.

Several free media players such as iTunes allow a user to re-encode MP3 files to standard sample rates.

Once an MP3 file has been re-encoded to a standard sample rate, it can be re-synced to the LeapPad/LeapPad2 and it will now play back correctly.
