    Here lately everytime I want to play my music I have to power down my droid X and back on.It reads this "This player doesnt support this music" or something like that.Once I shut down and back on it plays fine everytime.Any ideas on why I have to power down all the time?

    Thanks in advance!!

    it may be an app that you recently downloaded, when mine started to act up every time i wanted to play music, I finally went into see what was the last set of apps downloaded and remove a "live streaming TV" app that couldn't connect or work and since that it haven't been happening, give it a try and see if that helps...

    that's a well documented problem introduced with the Froyo 2.2 update. Motorola fixed it a month ago and everyone's waiting on Verizon to ship it out OTA.

    Very well documented. The solution is to NEVER use the stock "Music" app included by Motorola with the phone (indeed, its usage cascades into a whole bunch of other problems with the camera, gallery, video, etc). Instead, download a third party media app from the Market like PlayerPro, PowerAMP, WinAMP, Doubletwist, etc. Candidly, they are all better than the stock app. Smooth sailing thereafter. To my eye, PlayerPro is the best of the bunch.

    2nd. the stock media player seems to be the cause. since I've started using poweramp and winamp, I've had zero problems.

    Tomnoir, who cares? The workaround is free and easy. That's the beauty of Android: if the providers or manufacturers are slow to fix something, you can always count on third party developers. To wit, media players, Handcent for the sms thread order issue, etc.

    Yes, download PowerAMP, that's what I use. It is far better than the stock player! I payed for it after the trial ran out....only 4.99, definatley worth it...try it out!
