Well... first of all Fedora, by default, can't play mp3s. Legal issues and such. But should be able to play wavs. What app are you using to play such files? What desktop are you using? The devil is in the details.

Go to fedorafaq.org there's a section dealing with how to play mp3s with gnome based stuff. Sorry can't help more, I have more experience dealing with KDE.
