    Bought a used mt3g last week. Not the 3.5 mm version. Can furnish more info ( firmware version , etc. ) if needed but here is my problem(s)
    I am using a 8gb SD card in it and sometimes it will play my music and videos. sometimes it won't.
    Sometimes I have to restart it a couple of times before it will read/play what I have on my card.
    The errror messages i get are : Activity movies ( in application camera ) is not responding. Options are force close or wait. Neither of which do any good. For the music I get "Sorry the player does not recognize that type of audio file ".
    The thing of it is that half an hour ago it worked fine . Closed that program , came back half an hour later to use again and get the previously mentioned error messages. Restart the phone 1, sometimes 2 times and all is well , until the next time i want to use it .

    A common problem with this phone ? Something I can fix? Wasted my money on the phone ? LOL Did i just buy someone elses headaches ?

    I used this SD card in my Samsung Impression with no problems .

    Anyway any help is appreciated cause I think this is a great phone ( in theory anyway )

    Thanks,
    Gary

    Did you reformat the card in the MT?

    Did you try a DIFFERENT card?

    Check the format of the songs you're trying to play.

    Here's the manual if you don't have it. Compatible formats are listed under Specifications, near the end.

    I know it would suck, but I would then try to buy a new card and see if that fixes the problem. If that doesnt fix it the next step i would take is to just restore the phone to the original state and if that doesnt work, I would say you bought someone elses headache :p

    Get a class 6 too if you can. You might need the extra speed down the road if you ever decide to root and run memory intensive roms.

    Even if you don't you'll have a much better media experience.

    alrighty then, Loaded the new ADATA 8gb class 6 sd card with 700 songs, 5 of my fave pics for wallpaper and 19 music videos ( 4.6gb left on card ).
    Running good ! everything plays like its suppose to hasn't missed a beat all day and I use my phone more for a music /video player than i do amything. Seems to load faster too.

    Thanks for all the help . Never knew there where different classes of sd cards until I joined this forum.

    FYI for those more technical than i am. ADATA offers a class 10 card

    I would be wary of adata. I bought an 8GB class 6 adata sd card from Fry's electronincs in Houston and the write speeds were less than my class 4/8GB kingston sd card ... what was also odd was that it was selling for less than the Kingston as well.

    The Kingston was registering at 3.9MB/per second while the adata was around 2.8MB/per second.

    Suffice it to say, I took it back and got my money back.

    Hopefully it was just a defect and yours fairs better.

    I had this issue too. A friend of mine that works for Verizon heard me cussing out my phone and told me to turn it off and let it sit for an hour before turning it back on, and to do that once a day, or turn it off when you charge it at night. I've been doing that and haven't had the problem since then.
