Incredible - Native music player turning on by itself once, somtimes twice a day ??
I have the Incredible and for some reason.. my native music player will turn on and play songs that are stored on my SD Card.
I am trying to see if there are any patterns, but it usually seems to be from one particular album.
What I find is that I leave the phone in my car and come back and hear quiet music playing...even if I wasn't using the music player before... I am pretty sure I have even locked the phone and it still does it.
I wonder if it is set to go off as some kind of alarm...maybe I need to keep track of whether or not it is happening at the same time each day.
It seems totally random.
I even removed the music widget and app. from my home screen and it did it again today.
Any thoughts ?

Go to settings>applications>manage applications>music player then clear data. It won't delete any of your music just playlists and settings I think. I just tried it to make sure and all my musics still there and I was able to play it again.

All my music was still there, as you mentioned.
Seems strange, like some sort of software bug.
mclarryjr, I will let you know if it works, thanks !!
( may take a day or two to let you know, because it only happens 1-2 times per day).

I had the same issue on my Storm 1, but it seemed to be Bluetooth related.
Your first post implied it only happens when you leave your phone in your car. Is your car/stereo Bluetooth enabled? If so, and clearing your player's settings fails, disable Bluetooth and see if that helps.
It's also possible that another car parks near enough to yours that may have Bluetooth. Just a thought.

Mine's done this.. basically what I've noticed is that if a ringtone, notification sound for an event is removed the event will play a random mp3 from your music.
Next time this happens, pull the notification bar down and let us know if the music stops.Possible Errors Between Keyboard And Chair.

It happened twice again today, once at 1042am and once at 1245am - both when I was driving my Ford Edge with Synch.
The problem hasn't happened yet, when I am not around my car... so maybe it has something to do with my car... since I am using the Synch feature which pairs my phone to the blue tooth enabled speaker system on the car ?
Funny, because another poster discussed the Ford Edge with Synch. Well, I just got a Ford Edge with Synch !!... I wonder if I should turn off the Synch feature ( which basically lets the stereo on the Ford serve as a blue tooth) and see if that stops the problem... but I really do like Synch.
Bottom line I am concerned with is this... is my phone defective or just a software issue or glitch ??

I think the best test is to disable Synch and just use a blue tooth earpiece and see if the issue continues.
I have also observed that the issue doesn't seem to happen outside of my car (with Synch)... thought I mostly use my phone in the car.
thanks for the info. I will disable Synch tomorrow on my Ford Edge and see if that takes care of the problem.
Well, I didn't disable Synch in my Ford Edge and my music player didn't come on inadvertently ( at least today, it didn't)
Having Synch is awesome, but it may be the problem regarding why my music player occassionally activates itself in while I am in my car. The weird thing is, the music always seems to turn on when the phone is in standby mode.
So, far the music player has not come on, except when I am in my Synch equipped car, so, as it has been suggested earlier, the Synch system in the car may be the culprit.
If it gets too annoying, I will disable the connection between my Inc. and blue tooth Synch built into the car and see if the problem goes away.
Anyone else having this issue ?

I've had the music player turn on by itself twice now. The first time I couldn't get it to stop or even change the volume with anything other than a battery pull. The second time I was able to turn the volume down, and the screen told me I was adjusting the ringer volume (I assume because I have the use-ringer-volume-for-notifications box checked.) I'm assuming it's somehow tied to a notification bug, but man does it ever get your attention when Flyleaf's "I'm So Sick" comes blasting out of your phone at work instead of a polite little "ding".

The problem is realted to Bluetooth. I have it happen every day or so and it is always when I am in my car (Ford Focus w/ SYNC). There are two Bluetooth profiles when you connect to the Ford SYNC system (and I assume with other car bluetooth systems), "Phone" and "Media". When the phone pairs with the Bluetooth, it detects both profiles and automatically turns on the Media Player. If you do not stream music over your phone to the car, you can dissable the Media option and this should stop the player from turning on.
Settings > Wireless & Networks > Bluetooth Settings > SYNC (hold) > Options... then just uncheck the Media profile.
