Galaxy S7 won’t play .m4a files, how to fix?
“Hi all, the .m4a music I use in iPhone does not work in Galaxy S7. I have all my music files that I ripped with iTunes from my CD’s using Apple Lossless Encoder, which made .m4a files. I’m sure these files do not have any copy protections. I am wondering if there is any way to fix the problem? Surely I’m not the only person that has had this issue. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks.”

As we learnt recently, m4a supports multiple codecs. The “MPEG-4 Audio (*.m4a)” format is supported by Galaxy S7 but “Apple Loseless Audio (*.m4a)” format isn’t. You can convert the .m4a files to .mp3 first (with HD Video Converter) and then copy the .mp3 to your device. Here’s how.
