Where are you putting the tracks?
They need to be in "Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Custom Music"

I haven't played with custom music, but in the options there is a place to see the in game music, and one of them is custom. You may need to check off boxes or something, I am not sure though, just a thought.

stupid game manual... specifically tells you to put it in the program files/sims3/custom music folder. i evn found the music in there :\

Thanks for the heads up guys

hmmm kind of sucks you cant divide the music up like in sims 2 AND you cant leave shortcuts in the folder like before :(

but i finally got it to work, and i have 1gb of music in the folder, works perfectly!

NOTE: the ingame player wont play any mp3 that is above 320kb... which blows.
