Doesn't really make any sense. As far as I know, you can only output sound from the PS3 from one connection at a time, so unless you're changing the settings in between, there's no reason why films and games should work over HDMI but MP3s wouldn't. When you say you plugged into the TV using Scart, I assume you had to change the settings to redirect the audio over the AV Multi Out socket for that to work? If not, describe how you have everything set up.

You could also try copying one of the MP3s to the PS3's local hard disk and then playing it from there - might help narrow it down. If this doesn't help, can you go through the exact steps you make to play the MP3s and anything that happens on the screen as you do this - may help us see exactly what is going on.
