I am not running any apps, just AVI Background, and even if I shut it down
and just had Extras as the background, the sound is still choppy.

I used SparkME for X to record the sound file in AIFF format and converted
it to MP3 via iTunes (OS 9.2). I will try just a sound file from a standard

I just do not think it will work because the test MP3 (Nokia voice) that
came with Mad Max, was just as choppy on my eMate as it is on my 2100.
