    I was hoping to find the answer to this problem. I'm having the same issue. I have all the audio files in the memory card audio folder under "my stuff", but cannot get the music player to come on. It keeps reseting the phone going to the AT&T screen and searches for the SIM and goes back to the home screen. Please help!

    mine does the exact same thing im trying to figure it out

    bought this phone for my daughter in november and the music player worked. But since january, whenever she tries to use the music player it restarts the phone. I spent an hour on the phone with AT&T and they sent us a new phone (same brand) and it does the exact same thing too!

    I've deleted every file off the SD card, to no avail. I've tried starting the music player with no SD card inserted, to no avail. It is getting very frustrating!

    man i got the exact problem. it wont let me play the songs at all. not even from external. im thinkin i might take it back or get a new one.

    from november to january is like 3 months. i got mine in january and its now the ends of march. maybe the matrix only plays songs for like 3 months and then maybe it stops working? idk... just a theory.

    im getting frustrated with it. its an awesome phone but i think the best solution is getting it replaced.

    My Pantech Matrix's music player worked fine the first two months or so that i had it but now whenever i try to listen to music the message "waiting" appears for about two minutes then my phone restarts.

    I can still listen to music through the external memory but i can only listen to one song at a time and every time i want to load a different song it takes about three minutes to load.

    This is extremely frustrating, especially since i payed an extra $200 for this phone. Iv,e only had it since February 26, 2009 and it is already having problems.

    Does anybody know if AT&T will replace it with a different phone of equal value, because it seems like this is a fairly common problem and it seems to be an issue with the phone itself.

I had the same problem. I put music on my SD card, and whenever I tried to play it, my phone would reset. I looked through the files, and found that the songs i had bought on iTunes were all in MP4 format. I downloaded the 4media mp4 to mp3 converter, and converted the files. When I put the card back into my phone, the music player worked perfectly!

Note: MP4 files DO NOT have question marks beside them in the phone. The only way you can tell is to highlight the files on a computer. Hope this was a help!!

Ok i figured it out. it wouldnt let me go to the "all music" section. it wud just restart. and it happened after i put a certain song in there. just out of coincedence i deleted the song. then like the next day i tried listening to music and it worked! i asked myself: wat changed?
and i realized that i had delelted that song off of it. to see if i was correct, i went home and put the song back on my phone. sure enough it restarted my phone. so i took the song out and it worked. good assnew.
so im thinking maybe one of your songs is causing the problem. sorry im late with the answer. hope this works on ur phones guys! its a really good phone

I've figured it out for my phone. It won't play more than like 50 songs. The media player gets stuck, all the music is on the external and shows it in the phone it is just that the media player won't load that much. I'm taking it back!

Pantech Ringtone problem


Hi, yes you can definitely use mp3 larger than 250kb for you ringtone, all you need to do is to buy an external micro sd card (512mb or 1 gb) where you can store the mp3 music.

Take care

I Keep getting "playback error" "format not supported" on lgcf360


Hello All, I think I may have a solution for the 'Playback Error'problem with the LG CF360. Below, I have put the steps that caused my phone tohave the error and then the steps I took to get rid of the error. Firstly, my CF 360 worked well for hours of playing songswithout any error. Then, after I did the following steps, the error happenedover and over.
  • I pushed a mp3 ring tone via blue tooth to the phone with the SD card in. It saved the ring tone in the SD card, but I wanted it on the phone in case the card was out, it would still ring.
  • I took out the SD card and pushed the same file to the phone, so it would save on the phone and not the SD card.
  • I also pushed another mp3 to the phone.
Then, the "Playback error" happened intermittently every fewminutes. This may have been caused by either
  1. The phone's library of mp3's being corrupted because of the same file in two locations, or
  2. The phone's physical memory getting too low to effectively play music.
Here are the steps I took that got rid of the error.
  • Delete the duplicate mp3 from the SD card
  • Move all music mp3's to the SD card and off of the phone.
  • Move some pictures to the SD and off of the phone.
  • Shut off phone
  • Take out SD card.
  • Turn on phone and try to play a playlist of songs that were on the SD card (causes the phone not find the file and update the music library)
  • Put in SD card while the phone is on. (causes the phone to re-build the music library).
After I did this, I have played mp3's for hours without anyerrors at all, just like before. Either I had too much stuff on the phone orthe music library was not correct causing the crash. I hope it helps. Mike

Cant view video off my mini sd card when i put it in computer


Try Downloading Quicktime to your PC. Its free and it plays 3GP(Mobile Phone) and MP4. Which is probably the format your phone is saving the videos in.

I also purchased the samsung sch r500 in august, because of the mp3 player, and i have yet to figure out how to get it to play music. i have formatted the sd card.. used a card reader to put the mp3 music...


i had this same issue....make sure all the songs are in .mp3 format, or they wont play. go into "my computer" and get into the sd card. make sure there is a folder named My_Music. Next, right click on each audio file, and click on properties, and copy and paste or drag and drop the files into the My_Music folder. put the sd card back in the phone. with the phone closed, hold the camera button in (button on right side of phone) until music plays or it says loading.

Getting songs from the sd card to show on my phone


To find your music on the SD, go to my stuff, sounds, external memory, mp3 and you should see your music. Playing it, however is another matter. You can play only one song. Then you have to manually play the next one. Not what I'd call an MP3 player.
