1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I recently got my Droid and I haven't figured out how to get my music in the right places. I want to make folders for different Genres of music also. Can someone please help! When I put my music on the phone and go to the music app, it plays ALL my songs, ringtones as well. Should the ringtones go in a seperate location? HELP ME PLEASE! :confused:

    what formats are your music and are they DRM protected. Droid right now doesn't play DRM music (usually music from subscription services like Rhapshody and Napster but this could change soon)

    Other than that the music should be seen no matter where it is on your sd card. But yes if you want a song for a ringtone and you don't want to to only pick one song at a time to be that ringtone your going to need a folder labeled "ringtones"
    and if you want a sound for your notifications one labeled "notifications" and for alarms... well that one is kinda tricky... "alarms"

    Use the search feature though, and you can get more into detail about it though.

    Pandora and Slacker are pretty good, I use them both. I like Pandora more. There is Last.fm as well. Give those a try.

    Hope this helps!:)

    There is also, iheartradio, which is good for listening to clear channel stations if you know any. I'm stoked I can get 94.5 the buzz and 93.7 the arrow when I'm no where near houston

    i'm going to suggest that if you are ripping music from CD's that you use Winamp's MP4/aacPlus (HE-AAC) encoder at 64kbps. i had ripped music with windows media player at 192kbps mp3 and could tell it sounded compressed. i then tried Winamp's HE-AAC format and it sounds noticeably better. i did a little blind test using headphones and my big speakers at home and i could easily pick which one was HE-AAC and which one was the 192kbps MP3. the HE-AAC at 64kbps also takes considerably less space, it's just a much better, more efficient format.
