    Hey guys! So I ended up having to get a new Droid X shipped to me cause there was a problem with the screen and it was declared DOA. This new Droid X is working out great for the past couple of days. Now all of a sudden my ringtones are switching on and off and pinging like they don't exist on the SD card, but when I turn the phone off and remove the SD card and reinsert it back in everything's fine but then the "Droid" on/off noise is pinging now. It's the same issue I had with the originial phone, but that one was replaced because after the Froyo update I couldn't get any signal out of my house and Verizon concluded that I was close enough to a tower that I should be getting a minimum of like 3 or 4 bars. So my question is this. What is going on with my phone? I am currently operating on 2.2, I am not rooted. I have not messed with the essence of the phone, since I don't know that much about the software. I have not uploaded any apps that control or silence the phone and all my apps that were uploaded are the ones that I had on my prior phone with the screen issue, and they never caused this issue.

    Here is the list of apps on my phone for those of you who would like to know: WordPress, AppBrain, AIM, Adobe Reader, NotePad, ColorPad, Pandora, DroidLight, Where's My Droid, Key Ring, Barcode Scanner, Urbanspoon, Jewels, The Schwartz Unsheathed, Angry Birds Beta, Astro, ChompSMS, Creature Pack Icon, Fancy Widget, and Smartshortcuts.

    So as you can see it's a very small list of things on my actual phone. I have used soundboards from the android market but that was only on my first phone and they were never ranked any lower than 4 and half stars. I don't download any apps below 4 stars. And I read all the comments as well, and there was nothing fishy or bad written about them.

    Sorry for the long post, just wanted to make sure I hit everything for you guys to be able to help me. I just don't want to go to Verizon if I don't have to cause they want to reset and send me home and it's a recurring issue if it's like my prior issue. Thank you for the responses in advance. I'm wondering if I have a bad SD card.

    Edit: Additionally I have the old phone with the screen issue and I had the new SD card that came with the phone, I popped it into the phone I'm currently using and powered it back on, and it's still pinged. I'm just not getting what the issue is cause everything was working fine the night before. All my ringtones were working and then I took it off of silent (the slide to silent from the lock screen, which I use since I haven't heard if the silent profile was fixed) and now everything is messed up sound wise.

    sounds like one of the known Froyo issues with mp3 (or music in general) recognition

    only thing you can try is a factory reset of your phone, and even then, no promises of a fix

    I can not listen to music, take pictures or video or basically anything that is media related. Really, really thrilled about that.

    I have done a factory reset, I have done about 60,123,390 battery pulls and nothing works. Thanks, Motorola!

    It's not my music that's doing it. My ringtones are still located on my phone, and so are my notifications. Somehow, the Froyo system or Motorola kicked my SD notification sound from where it was. IDK how, but it did. So the guy I got from Verizon, apparently an associate of Birdman, talked me through the system. I told him I'm a Windows child, but I know enough about programming to know that that's a disconnect in the system that doesn't make sense so that means that something isn't doing it's job because of improper coding and he agreed with me. So we took off SD notifications and I no longer have any noises when powering my device on or off, which is fine with me cause it's a setting I normally choose, but that's highly irritating.

    Didn't have to reset at all.

    My ringtones, my music, etc are all still located on my phone and the SD card. Initially I was getting a "Sorry this file type..." message when I tried to play music on the default music player. For whatever reason, last night it went from that error to now just skipping through the songs each second, no sound still. If I take a picture, it doesn't keep it, if I try and record a video, it kicks me out of the video camera and back to the home screen. Very frustrating.

    I would call verizon and see what they can do for you. It may be that your software it bad on your phone. It may be that they can send you a new phone that doesn't have an issue as bad as what you are dealing with on your phone. I know that I had this issue on my first phone but got it replaced because when Froyo was pushed through I lost all signal on my phone and they sent me one because of that. That one they sent was DOA cause of a screen issue, and this one I didn't want to send back cause it was working perfect except for that annoying skin crawling pinging noise. Which is now fixed because I unchecked the SD card notification.
