    I have had the DC for a couple weeks now and I am having a lot of trouble playing the music I put on my phone from PC. Most of my music is downloaded from various websites as mp3's. I made a separate folder to put all my music in on my phone that can be found in the "My files" App. When I try and play the songs it says.. "error playing requested track". After I reboot it works for a little, then error message re-appears. I bought this phone under the impression I could use it as a universal tool. Music is very important to my lifestyle and i would love to get this matter resolved. In short terms what is the easiest, most effective way to put all my music from PC on to my DC.


    Thanks!

    Oy. I'm betting that you have the official Twitter app. Uninstall it, reboot, and live life again. This is a known issue (at least to the users it is)

    Would it make more sense to just go out and re-invest in an iPod? Most of the music on my phone comes from the "datpiff" App or website and I think this is where the problem lies.

    The official Twitter app has been known to cause this issue that you describe. If you need Twitter access, I suggest getting TweetDeck on the Android Market Place.

    Also, the MP3 player that comes on the Droid Charge is... as far as I'm concerned, severally lacking. But because of the open nature of the Android system, you can download any media player you want for the Android. I suggest either Winamp or DoubleTwist. Both of those players are free of charge and are both excellent MP3 players.

    I have a lot of MP3s (both bought and personally ripped) along with some iTunes audio tracks that I have bought and they all play excellent in either Winamp or DoubleTwist.

    The nice thing about Winamp is that if you connect your Droid Charge to your WiFi network and your computer to your WiFi network, you can connect your Droid Charge (via Winamp) to Winamp on your computer for free and transfer music wirelessly without having to connect your phone to your computer. It takes all of the hard work of putting the music files in the proper places out of the equation.

    I just downloaded winamp, It is forced to close multiple times when I use to access via widget. Can winamp sync songs from the download folder on my PC? I don't use iTunes.

    There is a sync functionality in Winamp, so yes... you can sync music back and forth between your computer and Winamp on the Droid. As for your music, Winamp should auto-detect new music titles you drop into your My Music folder.

    Spotify app allows you to play music that is on your DC and it has a sync feature if you have Spotify installed on your PC. It also has built in last.fm scrobbler if you use that site.

    I have all my music on my pc and use mspot to listen on my phone.. I think mspot is excellent.. Streams wireless, no need to sync phone ever. Manage all your music on windows media player, including creating playlist. Create a playlist on pc and it appears on your phone

    Power Amp is the best music player I've ever used.
