I have an older mobile phone but it is also made as MP3 player

has some SD 1 GB memory card

so naturaly it has some pictures on it and many songs (mp3)

but some songs simply refuse to play as whole like comes to 70% of song

then error displays "failed playback" or even whole album from playlist

then after some time its ok again

 

so my question is, since its old mobile phone in question, could this be the cause

of scattered files or what, is it smart to defrag it from windows OS when plugged in as USB memory card ?

I would not defrag it, just copy the data on a local computer, format the SD and copy back the data on it. Also run a anti-virus program while you are at it. Clean the contacts with an pencil eraser so they are shiny again.

problem with formatting is that when phone is connected via usb to pc

pc "combines" both internal phone and sd card memory into one drive

so if i do format i would screw some internal sys settings of phone itself

That is very odd, since you seem to think you can defrag it separately, and they are not combined for me.  But if that is true for you, then use a SD card to USB adapter to plug the card directly into the computer for formatting.

 

Cheers and Regards

don't have it

what i'm doing now is moving all files to PC

will take out the memory card, clean the contacts

then remove back in order by file type (pictures, music)

so there at least by my logic, nothing gets scattered

 

if that fails I don't know what the heck should I do...

 

-----------------

ok done all that and it still gives me same problems

 

the only problem it might be that "filesystem" of card is FAT, (i guess fat16 ????)

but I don't have a MP3 bigger than ~9 MB if that causes issues ?
