The problem may also be that you have too many temporary internet files stored. These are normal files that are stored when you visit a website so when you come back to that site, the pages load much faster. They leave some of the website's information on your computer so it doesn't have as much to download when you return.

Try (for VISTA users) going to START>Control Panel>System and Maintenance> and right under the "Administrative Tools" headline you'll find "Free Up Disk Space" click that and it'll ask you what drive you'd like to clean up, select the drive you want (usually drive "C") and click ok, when it finishes figuring out how much space it will free up, make sure all the check boxes are checked in the window that pops up, especially the one marked "Temporary Internet Files" and click ok. This may take some time if it's the first time you're doing this so just be patient and let it do it's thing. After it's complete, it will automatically close and you can try the Yahoo! Radio again.

If you are on XP (or VISTA), you should be able to find "Disk Cleanup" in START>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup. Then follow the same procedure as before, choose the disk (usually "C") then click ok, check all the boxes, then click ok.

Because Yahoo! Radio uses streaming media, it's trying to download the song at the same time it's playing and there's no room left in the temporary internet file folder so it has to play catch up the whole time, that's why it'll stutter.

If you go through all of that and you are still having a problem, let us know with a comment to this thread so we know what we've done so far and we'll try to help you out again. If it is your internet connection, you should have had this problem since you got the internet and it wouldn't be a new problem, but if it has been like this the whole time, you don't have enough bandwith to handle that much streaming and downloading at once. If that's the case, I'm sorry but the only thing you can do is upgrade your internet connection. First, try my suggestion.

Good luck and don't forget to rate! Thank you!

I have a droid Samsung Galaxy 4S cell phone. My problem is in my attempt to play music from my cell through my boat radio I plug in with a cord through the top jack on the phone directly to the radio.

A Samsung phone running the Android operating system probably has a Google "Play Music" app installed. Open the list of apps and look for it. If not go to Google "Play Store" and install it.

If your music files are on your phone or memory card, you can set up the app and it will create a database of all your songs (usually in a folder called "Music"). The app plays what you ask it to play - one song, or an entire album, or all songs in the "genre" Country, etc. The radio just plays whatever sound the phone is sending. The iphone is set up to play a series of songs (probably you selected an album) before pausing.

How do I get it to play the entire song?

Its because the songs are set to shuffle every 10 seconds. Click on a song (any song will do) hit pause so it stops playing. Click on the gear icon at the top right of the screen. Scroll down the list to "Advanced" then make sure "Replay Interva" is set at 1. If it already is I would contact Visual Land Support witch can be found here:

Music keeps stopping whle playing. How can I fix this problem?

It sounds like the track is still downloading and the music is playing faster than the download speed. You could try pausing while it has loaded.
I find a lot of these streaming sites suffer with the problem. I don't think you can do a lot about it. Unless spending a lot of money on faster broadband etc is your thing.

My sansa clip won't play the songs I loaded on!

I've had this happen a couple of times in the last 6 months. You can get it to play again by chosing the format option from the settings menu. Of course, then you've lost everything you had loaded on to it. Download your music/audio books again and they will play.
