    Hello. Like everybody else today, I eagerly updated my X to froyo. However, when I tried to play music off my droid, my phone froze for a while before switching to a completely unrelated song. Since then, the player has completely frozen the phone, stopped and started a song repeatedly, and lagged awfully, seemingly with no cause. It does this both in the app itself, and on the mini-player on the lock screen. Also, it STILL cuts of my .wma files (though it does see the album art now). Has anybody else had or fixed a similar problem? Thanks.

    I have the same problem. When I use the music player, after I turn the phone to a horizontal position, then back to vertical, the whole phone locks up. Sometimes it shuts off and I need to take out the battery.

    Have other people had the same problem since the update to 2.2?

    I am having a similar problem since the 2.2 (2.3?) update. If I turn the phone to a horizontal position while using the stock music player, it switches to the horizontal view correctly but if I go back to vertical, It reverts but part of the screen is cut off like it doesn't scale back correctly. If I leave the player after this and then try to come back to it, then screen is blank. Restarting the phone is the only way I know to fix it. It is really annoying. I hope a fix is released soon.

    I too have fallen victim to this problem after update to 2.2. Completely froze my phone and required that I pull the battery. Can anyone confirm that a non-native MP3 player works in it's place after the update without any problems? If so what do you recommend?

    I'm having the same problem. I'm happy to know I'm not the only one, but hopefully they will release a fix soon.

    Went against my better judgment and updated the first day it was out (never again btw). Rather than wait for a solution, I just downloaded mixzing and opted out of the native music player altogether (or until they provide a new update).

    Note: did test mixzing and rotated the screen without any hangups.

    Booo! Froyo = Teh Suck

    Same problem

    Yea I am having the same problem. It also can happen when you have a song playing decide to pause it and swap songs quickly, it will lock up in a loop and the battery pull is the only thing to get a response.

    Glad I am not the only one with this problem.. along with Pandora problems.
    perhaps they will identify this problem when they release the SMS software update..

    Yeah, I'm having the same problems with the standard music player. You can fix it, kind of, by pressing the power button. The power off screen appears, don't power it off, just hit the back button and it should go back to normal. It does on my X.

    My roadrunner email won't let me send out emails either. I can receive them, but not send them. Annoying...

    Froyo has taken my droid x from the perfectly fine condition it was in with 2.1 to a state that has so many bugs that I almost returned the phone 3 weeks after buying.
    This music player issue also happens to me and crashes the phone... lags... skips and stutters anytime I stop/start tracks, and a whole slew of other issues. Even the autocorrect and text input ability isn't as good. As much as I love droid, if this isn't all resolved in the very near future, ill be shopping for another brand.
    Please forgive any typos as the text lags/freezes, autocorrects to wrong words after I've already types 3 more, and hides text input on most webpages so that I can only see the last line or so of text. Sometimes I can't see text at all and have to hit back and try to reset the input, but that usually just leads to more frustrations and super slow typing speeds.

    And many.... many.... other issues both minor and major. I now have a droid (my son uses it) and a droid x both on froyo. Both with same issues. Both freezing/rebooting now. Joy.

    Im having a similar problem...... When I'm listening to music on my phone the player turns off without warning and when I try to open it back up it says it can't play those files. When this happens, my videos don't work either. What can I do to fix this problem except restarting the phone every time??

    Just a note. This is being talked about on the Droid X Motorola support boards. The forum admin is elevating it to the engineers.

    I have a similar problem.
    Sometimes when using pandora, slacker radio, or music... My phone will alert me that it can not read that type of file. I power cycle my phone and it'll work fine again.
    I've noticed this after the 2.2 update.

    power cycling my phone can be a real pain...

    I have the full mixzing app. I love it no problems with 2.2. I use isyncer with my mac and itunes. I have never used the native audio player. Mixzing does it all.

    music freezes during playback

    My problem is most like the ones reported by grave train.......... Verry disapointed in froyo 2.3 unlike grave train however, I decided to wait when my phone prompted me to upgrade and clicked later........when I woke up in the morning my phone went behind my back and updated itself....grrrr..... oh btw lost root too........not real happy with froyo......wish I knew how to go back to 2.1.......I came to android from a berry storm....price of crap. But it was easy to install different os on it......I don't understand all the comand line stuff ......wow sorry for the rant but I was getting very. Angry today when my music was jumping and skipping

    Same, same, same-

    Having same problems (a couple of different variations but generally the same)- I've tried everything; the latest thing that seems to have cleared this up (I've been having to remove the battery at least twice a day) is to unmount the SD card before removing, then re-insert...no pausing or freezing yet... :) (new Droid 2 purchased with Froyo 2.2)

    DroidX freezes during music playback after 2.2 installed

    I too am having the same issues as everyone else. Music stutters/static...then phone freezes and only way to unfreeze is to do a battery pull :( ... LOVE my DroidX and was ecstatic when the 2.2 update finally came out , but I am so disappointed with all the bugs it came with, although I do have faith that with enough complaints... it will soon be fixed. Until then I will miss my music, too much of a hastle to pull battery all the time. Someone also had stated the texting problems... it is constantly autocorrecting to something else for no reason... the other day I was telling someone that they had emails.... well the text ended up saying they had "snails" instead, although I got a little chuckle out of it, it gets pretty annoying. I can see if the word was mispelled, but email to snail???? lol ...and on some web pages when entering text into a box, sometimes it doesn't show what I am typing and when I hit the back button to go back to the page, sometimes the text is there and sometimes it is still blank... boohoo
