What audio formats does the Samsung Galaxy S support?

I put about 500 songs on my Samsung Galaxy S but it only recognises about 150 of them. Which audio format do I need to use??

From Sammy's website:
"MP3/AAC/AAC+/eAAC+/OGG/WMA/AMR-NB/AMR-WB/WAV/
MID/AC3/IMY/FLAC/XMF"
Of course as CTPAHHIK says there are tons of different players for Android that'll play any formats the default doesn't (providing it doesn't have DRM of course).

Audio format is player specific and does not relate to which phone you use. I'm sure that popular formats (mp3) are supported by Android build-in player. Uncommon formats (ogg, apple) might require different player.
There is WinAmp available on market free or charge. Give it a try.

I got this phone for my daughter for xmas it seems to play only mp3 & jpeg I cant get it to play WMA at all it just says" this device does not support this type of file" not good as most of her music is WMA

WMA??? LOL
Oh, oops... sorry.
In theory, the Samsung Galaxy S does suport WMA files. But loadsa issues are known.
The obvious one: your music tracks in the .wma format are DRM protected. You bought them or whatnot and you are not 'allowed' to play them on another device.

You can start by downloading MX Player from the Play Store on your daughter's phones. It supports wma files. If it cannot play those files either, they ARE INDEED protected.
You can also just search for "wma player" in the Play Store if you want to try other players...

There may be ways to convert and rip the files, but it would help to know where those files are from.
You could also install an audio/music converter and try converting those tracks to MP3 or AAC... wma is not the most common music format these days. I do not know what computer and operating system you use. But there are many sites where you can download a free audio converter - Snapfiles or Softpedia or or or... Just google those.
