Otherwise okay mp3s skip on the carbon

I was given a refurbished carbon in june as a gift. i didn't use it much at first, but around september when i began to use it at the gym, i noticed mp3s that have no skips or stutters on my computer or iriver have major skips on the rio, to the tune of one every second. i've unloaded all the music and then reloaded it, but that doesn't fix it. how can i repair the carbon?

Re: otherwise okay mp3s skip on the carbon

Are uou using the original headphones? If your headphones have a wide metal base that comes in contact with the metal top of the Carbon, you may hear static or skipping during playback when you move the Carbon.

Memory loss on ipod


The ipod nanos the smallest product in the Apple iPod line. The fourth generation Nano comes in two different capacities, each capable of holding thousands of songs.
    Capacities
  1. The fourth generation iPod Nano comes in 8 GB and 16 GB models. The 8 GB version can hold 2,000 songs, and the 16 GB version can hold 4,000 songs.
  2. Tips
  3. Song capacity estimates are based on music encoded in Apple's proprietary format at a standard, average bitrate. The higher the bitrate, the better the quality. Songs deviating from Apple's standard (for example, CD-quality music or high bitrate MP3s) will use more disk space.
  4. History
  5. Nano's predecessor, the iPod Mini, was released on January 6, 2004, and was available with a 4 GB hard drive. The Nano was first released on September 7, 2005, and was the first iPod to use flash memory. It was first available in 2 GB and 4 GB versions. The fourth generation Nano was released on September 9, 2008.
  6. Size
  7. The fourth generation iPod Nano is 3.6" tall and 1.5" wide.
  8. Video
  9. The third generation Nano, released on September 5, 2007, was the first Nano to feature video playback. Storing videos on Nano can dramatically reduce the amount of songs it can hold.

Songs skip mid tune? not ev song but enuf 2drive u nuts


Update the firmware.
Reload the songs.
If the problem persists:
Re-rip the CD songs in Mp3 format in Windows Media Player
Then reload the songs. WMA format has a checkable option that is normally turned off by default, but must be turned on inside your Windows Media Player - it is much easier to reconvert the songs into Mp3 format than to tell you how to change this WMA option.

Nano Audio Playback Repeatedly Skips Same Section of Song Track


I get this a lot with MP3s and it is because of the chips that Apple used in these iPods. It's only in the very latest ones they have solved this by using a different manufacturer. The best way I found to solve this was convert all the MP3s to AAC.

To do this, in iTunes
  1. go to the preferences and in the General section where it says 'When I insert a CD' or similar there is an ImportSettings button. Click this and in here there is a selector for 'ImportUsing' and change it to AAC - The native codec for the iPod. Save all this
  2. then in the main music library select the song you want to repair and right-click (ctrl-click on a mac) then choose 'Create AAC Version'. This will convert it.
  3. Now right click it and choose 'Show in Explorer' (Finder on a Mac) and delete the MP3 version.
  4. Back in iTunes if it made duplicate listings for the song try to play it. If it plays that's the AAC version if it doesn't thats the old MP3 version and needs deleting.
  5. Transfer the AAC version into any Playlists you had associated with it for the iPod.
  6. Done.
Kind of a pain if you've got loads of them to do but it does work. I tried repairing the mp3s in other software but the ipod still had issues with them so AAC is the way to go. (You can also convert them back to MP3 from the AACs which also fixes it but if you haven't transfered the AACs to the iPod it wont recognise the change of file for the MP3s)

Hope this helps you out.

All the best

Won't play songs


the codec used to create your Mp3s etc... may not be compatible with your Ipod.. your Ipod will automatically Skip any songs it cannot play (encoded with incorrect codec).

Try using a MP3 editor to re-encode the troublesome songs

Player skips over some songs


MP3 files are not a totally homogeneous group. You have different bitrates, and different codecs that output MP3s, let alone all the MPCs and the likes. You should check what your player's recommended bitrate is, and try to find what is common with the MP3s it can't play. Maybe you get them from the same source. If you rip a cd, and output it to MP3 files, my bet is that either all or none will work, there is no randomness here. The only other option is that the files got corrupted somehow, and the player can't read them. Good luck
