mp3 player cut off

A song downloaded from YouTube plays just fine on my Windows Media Player but needed editing, clipping a bit off the beginning and end. The result was great. However, when played back on my mp3 player this particular song shuts down my player at the end of the tune. This happens every time requiring a hard reboot to restart my player. When it comes back on it has been reset several tunes prior to this one, never to the same place for each occurrence. Any suggestions?
Windows XP, Vers. 2002, SP3. Audacity from .exe installer.

which is what?

Check in the player Manual what sample rates and bit rates it supports.

Only export MP3’s from Audacity that are at those rates.
