Sending and receiving files via FTP

 It's been six months since the last activity on any group regarding
FTP, but there is still no post that explains how to solve the problem
with the stating "Unable to connect to server:
{0}" whenever trying to connect to an FtpURLConnection. (The "FTP use
from Android" thread goes into detail about this problem, complete
with example code).

I've noticed on my server logs that the Android emulator is actually
able to connect to the FTP server and even request the transfer of the
file (although the amount of bytes transferred is 0 in the xferlog),
so this doesn't seem to be a firewall or networking configuration
problem. I also have the Internet permission in the manifest file, and
I'm able to request files via HTTP just fine.

Has anyone been able to use FtpURLConnection successfully?

2. DROID sound playing problem

I have a customer with a DROID phone.  It's showing a rather odd symptom.
I have 2 sounds that play at regular (but different) intervals in my app.
One of them plays every time.
The other (more frequent) plays every other time.  I've put tracing in the
code, and I AM calling MediaPlayer.start() every time.  No exceptions are
being thrown.  It just only plays the sound every other time.
This also only happens for one specific sound file. (they are all very short
This works just fine in both the emulator and my Backflip.

Any ideas on what I should look for?
