    Default Media uses over 80% of my battery when off

    My phone has been eating my battery life like crazy. I read some forums and found that Media can sometimes be kept on from a SD card sync, etc. I removed the SD card and the phone was way better for around a week. Now today the media is back to eating up my battery life. Here is my battery summary:
    Media = 88%
    com.motorola.home.message = 5%
    display = 3%
    wi-fi = 2%
    phone idle = 2%
    cell standby = 2%

    when I open the media here is what I get:
    CPU total 1h 38min 56sec
    Keep awake 1h 53min 33s

    download manager
    drm protected content storage
    oma download
    media storage

    This is all after my phone has came off a fully charge and not used for approx 2 1/2 hours.

    Any suggestions?

    I've read elsewhere that this can happen if there is a bad media file somewhere either on the external SD card or on the internal "SD card". What I would try is to back up the files on internal storage (called "/SDcard" in Astro file manager) by copying them to your PC, format the internal storage (in settings->storage) and see if that solves the problem. Then copy back to storage only the files that you absolutely need.
