    so i just picked up my droid x yesterday, and today i'm trying to make new ringtones out of songs i dropped in from my pc. i noticed that a couple of the songs i moved sound compressed/slightly distorted.

    also, with one song it sounds like the singer's voice is a lot louder than the instruments in the background, and the volume automatically lowers when the song comes out of a transition (i.e., a soft part plays clearly but when the song picks up again the volume lowers to compensate).

    all the songs sound perfect on the computer speakers, but a couple cause problems for the droid's external speakers.

    anyone else experience this issue?

    in case anyone is wondering, there's 3 songs: wish you were here by pink floyd (sounds perfect), complications by deadmau5 (sounds compressed/distorted), and sleepwalker by parkway drive (weird volume issue described above)

    I used windows media player to convert and sync songs. I have 2gbs or so worth of music and never had a problem with any song. While the x can read mp3's just dragged on there some files it might need to change the formatting a little that could be where your problem is.
