Hi,
Your music is probably in the wrong format or the individual files are corrupted in some way. If the same songs are skipped everytime, delete those songs. Check the format on them by right clicking on them and selecting 'properties'. Check to see if they are formatted in MP3 format or a format that the iPod can play. If you ripped them from a CD, they will be in AAC format which takes up more room on your iPod.

When you rip a CD into iTunes, you can choose what format to rip it as. Try it. Hope that works.

It will not play a song it doesnt play instead just keeps changing songs. How do i fix this


If the file is corrupt, then it will skip until it finds one that it can play. I had this on some songs I ripped from a scratched up CD. At a certain point, the files are not clear enough for the iPod/iTunes, and will be skipped. This can also happen if you've unplugged without ejecting the iPod first while you were transferring music. I would recommend either playing a different song, or if it is doing it to all of them, put the iPod into DFU mode. You should be able to google that and have no problem with it. It will wipe your iPod, however.

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 Shuffle problem


Though I do not have a ipod shuffle, it sounds like you set it to run on "sample" which is a setting to play only a few seconds of the song then stop, are you using any other program besides itunes?

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

Ipod won't go to main menu when menu clicked


The best option would be to restore the iPod's software. To do that, plug in the iPod to your computer and open iTunes. Click on your iPod in the left hand column and click "Restore" under the iPod information. Please note that all songs will be cleared from the iPod. Once that is done, load the songs back on to the iPod and see if the problem is solved.

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.

Nano skipping song


Hello there! Wow... sounds like you've really been through the proverbial wringer with this issue already! You have indeed tried almost every step I would have suggested already, but here's another thing or two to try: 1) Burn an audio CD of this song. It's a true waste of a CD, but fortunately CDs are quite inexpensive! 2) Eject the CD. 3) In iTunes, find the problem song and add something to the title to make it differentiate it... for instance, if the song was, "Freebird", I would rename it, "Freebird CORRUPT". 4) Re-insert the CD, and now rip this new version of the song into iTunes. 5) Sync up your iPod and see if the issue is resolved. Hope this helps you out! =)
