    Hi All,

    Nice forums :) I have recently purchased the Samsung Galaxy S2 (Love every second on it) and a 16gig Kingston Micro SD Card. I have all my music on the SD Card and when I play music through the stock music player it usually will play around 1-2 song before restarting the phone :( Anyone have any suggestions on how I can get it to work correctly?

    Thanks ;)

    P.S.
    Currently using Real Player for the mean time. I have only played music through headphones, not sure if the problem exists when using the speakers.

    Gday, I have the same issue and was the reason I joined this forum. After some trolling on the web i found that the stock music player does this and it has something to do with jumping from 3g to H etc.. It then starts to scan media for whatever reason.

    It happens whenever music is played, not just the headphones.

    I downloaded winamp. Now I don't have a problem. Its a bug in the player and I am surprised there is not more on it. maybe its just a few of us that have the problem I got my phone new less than a month ago from optus.

    I have not rooted it. :)

    Hope this helps.

    Have this exact same problem with the Samsung galaxy S2 music player. Phone resets within 1-3 songs and makes no difference if the music is on the phone storage or sd card.

    Guess only fix to date is download a new music player.

    Hi Ninja's,

    Thanks for the replies. I contacted Samsung and they said the issue could be the phone itself. I was then adviced by Samsung to backup my files, contacts, music, videos and apps onto a PC (or Sim Card for contacts) and then do a factory reset.

    Settings->Privacy ->Factory data reset

    I have not tried this yet but I will let you know how it goes. Also if you return the phone within 30 days of purchasing they will automatically replace it (In Australia).

    I hope we can solve this issue, its so annoying using a external media player.

    Best of luck to all
