newbie needs help, poi. voice alerts

 

i have downloaded poi files and installed to sd card and set proximity alerts works fine. but what is not working are the custom voice alerts that are downloaded along with the csv. files i have renamed the mp3 files to match the exact same name as the csv. file using .mp3 instead of .csv when i pass location the alert goes off but not with custom voice file. unit uses default voice by the way all files are in one folder which i use poi loader to transfer to sd card. any help is appreciated. my model is a garmin nuvi 750.

What Model?

What model GPS do you have? Not all have mp3 players.
