Motorola Droid - When I record a video with my Droid and then play it back, it is leaving a black border around it...I have searched several forums, the manual, etc...can't seem to find the answer anywhere of how to fix I missing a setting somewhere on the phone to make it play back correctly in full screen mode? Thanks!
Well, just to be clear, there will always be black bars on the left and right side of the video because the camera doesn't record at 854x480, it records at 720x480.

That being said, if you have a border around the entire video, my guess is that you recorded it in low quality.

Go back into your camera app, press the menu button and check your video quality. If it's set to high (for SD card), then it should play back "full" screen in the gallery.
