    The MP3 works great on a normal basis although when riding the motorcyle it begins to skip similar to a scratched CD. This is the only time this happens, what should I do?

I had the same/similar problem. I don't have any copy protected music on my Nano and all of my music is in AAC so I'm still not too sure what was happening. Basically my nano would display the title track then immediately skip to the next track without playing any of them. It kept doing this until it decided to shut itself off automatically. The next time I started it up, it ran fine. I shut it down and let it be for a few hours only to find the next time I started it up, it was doing the same thing. I decided to restore the factory settings through iTunes and had to put all of my music back on my pod. Not cool. I also downloaded an update for the nano and installed it when I restored the settings. So far so good. Hopefully that doesn't happen again. Especially when I'm on the ice or on the hill.

In a mater in fact it could be the mp3 the mp3 was copy right protected so it skips and doesn?t let you listen to them.

SOURCE: 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

    Ipod nano 2g gets stuck on certain songs and will skip everything else. i can't reboot when i'm out jogging.


    Hi,
    This is probably caused by your music being in the wrong format or they are corrupted. If it is always the same songs that it is having problems with, then delete the songs from your iTunes library and reload then. First, check to make sure they are in the proper format for your ipod, ie, mp3. OK? Hope that helps.

    Song skipping


    Do the songs skip when they are played on your computer? If they aren't, it could be an issue with the iPod.
