I Want My MP3

Please take a look at the two electronic devices in the following picture:

One of these devices plays the MP3 files that I ripped in iTunes from CDs that I own, and one of these devices does not. (The Joe Satriani pick is included just to give you an idea of the size of the device on the left.)

I think you can see where I am going here with this one. The cheapo flimsy extra-white Kube MP3 player on the left plays the MP3 files just swimmingly. Conversely, this is not exactly what I am expecting to see when I go to the music player on my shiny new Samsung Droid Charge from Verizon:

Anybody have any ideas? If I reboot the device, the MP3 files play for a while, and then it goes back to the wonderful “Sorry, the player does not support this type of audio file” message. Also, I have no intention of uninstalling the Twitter app. I use the Twitter app and I am not sure if it would even go away if I tried to uninstall it. (I have tried repeatedly to uninstall “Let’s Golf” from the device, but alas each time I uninstall it, it shows back up again.)

If you would like to follow along with this on the Verizon support board, please feel free…

MP3 files will not play

BTW, Happy Pi Approximation Day. July 22, 22 divided by 7 is 3.142857 (decimal pattern then repeats), which is as close to pi as you can get with a fraction made up of a numerator and denominator that are reasonbly small.
