    Sounds like it's trying to auto-mount the SD card (which I didn't think it could do)....

    FYI, I usually charge at work using a USB cable and that never cuts off my music.

    From what I can gather, the wiring in the mini-USB plug determins what the phone thinks it's connected to. The connections on the mains charger tell the phone that it is on a mains charger, and the computer USB lead tells the phone that it's connected to a computer.

    The problem comes when say, a non Samsung car charger is connected to the phone and if it has the same wiring config as a computer USB lead, the phone will think that it's connected to a computer, and behave accordingly.

    Hopefully these little problems will go away when Samsung release the necessary accessaries.
