    i'm on my 6th droid and it has happened for every one of them. i ended up rooting and overclocking to see if that would help it, and it did. but... i have to be at 1000MHZ min for it to never crackle, and i really don't feel like pushing the processor that hard.

    maybe you should root...and then over clock....and use the audio volume hack??

    just a suggestion :)

    I can help you with all of this if interested.

    I rooted and overclocked. ... and it made a big difference. It rarely happens now.

    yeah man it definitely makes a difference but in exchange for an enormous amount of battery life... i listened to music for about an hour total and was down to half battery. unacceptable that we have to go to such lengths just to hear our music without skips

    Agreed. Luckily for me, I mainly listen to music at work, and I have it plugged in (Dock), so the battery life is not such a big deal.

    Since overclocking helps (significantly), it proves that it is a CPU issue, the OS is not prioritizing the multimedia stack. Seems like something they (Google) could fix, they surely know about it. I am sure the Nexus One does not have the problem. [​IMG]

    I had this same issue with the motorola droid. I use my phone as my mp3 player while I'm at the gym and I use the motorola bluetooth headphones. Just turn your phone off and then back on and you shouldn't have any more problems

    I registered to this site just to tell you that your post above is a load of garbage. restarting does nothing!!!! apparently the upgrade to 2.1 solves the problem!

    This thread dates back quite awhile. My Moto Droid X2 running OS 2.2 has this skipping problem with it's stock music player. This is my second Droid and I like the X2 very much but it really irks me that I can't listen to music without having songs cut out on me.

    I store all my music on the SD card and I loaded it from my Win 7 64-bit PC.

    Someone on another forum said that switching to PowerAmp solved the problem. So I tried the trial version and it is a very nice music player but the skipping problem persists. So I don't think the problem is the music player that comes with the phone.

    As of yet I have not learned how to root or overclock the phone and up until now I really didn't see the need. But if this solves this problem I am tempted to learn how.

    Maybe Gingerbread will contain a fix for this. Anyone know when Verizon is planning to release the new OS?
