Default Canít stop autoplay of music files after Bluetooth pairing (Android cell with car radio)

I have a HTC Incredible 2 phone (Android) and a Pioneer CD Receiver in my car. After I pair the two devices, music files on the android begin to play automatically. Any and every Mp3 file on the phone (music, custom ringtones, etc.) will play one by one non-stop.

To stop this every time I pair up, I have to go to Settings / Wireless & networks / Bluetooth settings / (hard press) device / Options / un-check Media. Then I have to stop the music player. Once that is done, everything works fine. But if I go from using the Bluetooth to using the radio, then go back to using the Bluetooth feature, then the problem starts all over again (auto-playing music files on the phone).

When I use an HTC Thunderbolt phone (Android) phone and pair it with the car radio, it doesnít auto-play the music. It works like itís supposed to.

I contacted HTC and the tech had me connect the offending phone to my PC via USB and then had me move the Mp3 files to other folders (he said my Mp3ís were in a wrong folder and thatís why the Bluetooth had been auto-playing them).

Later, upon trying the pairing again, the problem still exists. I compared files and folders between the two HTC phones and they're identical as far as where the Media, Audio, Ringtones, etc. are located.

Any ideas of a fix?

The music app automatically plays songs, or is it any/every app? If it's just the music app, I'd suggest you force close the stock music app and see if it does it after you kill the music app. Then use a third party music playing app, like Power Amp.

Smile Found A Fix I Can Live With

Jerofld,

I had forced closed all my music apps before pairing. But it launches the Android default player anyway. I tried other music apps but the problem still exists, but I did find reasonable fix.

I downloaded an app called Media Button Router. After pairing, a menu pops up showing all my music apps, and thus allows me to choose one. I go ahead and ignore that and after a few seconds the app closes and no music begins to play like before. I can live with that but itís frustrating as to why pairing would automatically start playing any music files on the Android. Maybe Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich will solve that issue.

Made an account and a first post just because of this.
This worked perfectly!
Took a lot of searching to no avail until I saw this post.
Thanks so much Photo !

Reviving an old thread with a new solution. Hope this helps someone.

I found that Media Button Router did the trick, but it would prevent bluetooth-streamed music from resuming after a call or some other interruption. The app would grab the "play" sent from the stereo when the call ended.

My fix was to use Tasker (tasker.dinglisch.net). I set up a profile that triggers when connected to the bluetooth in my car (state >> net >> bluetooth connected). The action is "media >> media button events >> grab". This makes Tasker take-over bluetooth keypress inputs.

If I want to listen to music from my phone, whatever media application I launch takes over bluetooth control from Tasker. That means that when a call comes in, music will pause, then resume after the call ends.

I use an app called autostart. It lets you disable just about anything, to include BT change of state. I went under the music apps and disabled media buttons under all the players. Thus far, 1 day, seems to be working.
