Default Sound distortion on microSDHC card/e280

I've had my e280 for about 5 years now and finally reached the point where I needed to start using the micro sd card slot for something other than watching movies. So, I bought a SanDisk 8gb microSDHC card and transfered files on it using the drag & drop method. When the music on that card played, the sound was distorted so at first I thought it was because it was bad mp3 files. Then, I noticed it did the same thing with music ripped from cds. So, I removed every file from the card and loaded them again, this time using Window Media Player 11. Same thing happens.

Is there something else I should do? Is this a known problem? It's really a pain to have the sound coming like the player is under water...

Thanks for your help!

How do these files sound when played from the e280 internal memory?

I was thinking about that... I'll need to try and transfer a file to the internal memory and see what happens from there...

Just tried moving 1 file from memory card to internal memory and the difference is obvious... So, it has to do with the card I guess...

Well the next attempt would be another microSD card. You implied that you had one with videos on it. Put the file on it and try again.

Well, it does seem to be the card causing trouble... I moved the same files onto another card and so far, all the songs I've listened to coming from it have sounded good.

Thanks for the suggestion, FreeZ5!

Might not be a bad card, but just got its panties in a twist. Try formatting the card.

Thanks, Tapeworm! I'll try that! It would suck to lose an 8gb micro SDHC card!
