In FS#11991, saratoga commented in response to your message:

  Thats a .aac file, basically a nonstandard raw stream. We don't
  support those. Only MP4/M4A and RM are allowed for MPEG4-Audio.

Looks like, for the time being, you need to recode these files to
another container format for Rockbox to be able to play them. Sorry!

Cheers & thanks for trying Rockbox,
