The default music player will read all the tag information and album art off of my SD card, but it will not play the music. It plays a fraction of a second, skips to the next song, and repeats until I have to "force close" the app. Is anyone else having this problem? I have not found much on the Internet about it at all. I have tried multiple SD cards, and I have also tried completely formatting the cards in a computer and in the phone itself. A different player like doubleTwist is able to play the music just fine, however...
Never heard of that problem. If you're that insistent on using that player, since it's an app that comes with the phone take it in to a Sprint store. Worst case they'll give you a new phone. Me personally I'm not a fan of the stock player so I'd just get another player, specifically PowerAMP.
Just curious but have you tried pulling the battery and rebooting the phone?
Yeah, I tried resetting the phone a few times, but still no luck. I am reluctant to hard-reset the phone just because I don't want to have to set everything up again, but I might try that a little farther down the road. I will try to stop by a Sprint store on Monday to see what they say.
ya I had the same exact problem. it happened just after i downloaded some music. I dont know if this had anything to really do with it, but it seems a little too coincidental. It worked perfectly fine after I unistalled last.fm too. Strange why it would matter.
It would start to play, maybe miliseconds and then try to skip to a new song until I either used task killer or force closed it.
BUt yeah unistalling last.fm fixed it.
Cumptrnrd: I have that same problem with some (but not all) of my WMA audio files because Android doesn't natively support WMA. So I uses BoomBoxoid (free) to play my WMA files. PowerAmp ($5) will also play WMA files, but the output volume is too low for me.
Do you have Last.fm installed? Or any other "scrobbling" app? Last.fm caused this exact issue on my Optimus V, and deleting last.fm fixed it.
PLEEEASEEEEEEEE help me! i have the lg optimus v, and i also have that problem, but i have NO idea how to fix it, i idont know how to unistall the last.fm,,, i have no clue if i have the app,, can someone please help me how to fix that problem!.. and how to unistall the last.fm.......... THANKS!
The LG Optimus S is LG's first Android phone in collaboration with Sprint. Sprint is looking to market this as a super affordable Android device. It will cost only 50.00 after rebates. It has a 3.2 inch touchscreen, a 600 Mhz processor, a 3.15 ... Read More
