The songs are in the wrong format - it does not recognize iTunes songs or DRM-encrypted songs which do not have "transfer rights" (many msuic services - especially free ones but also paid ones - give you WMA's that have "play rights" -i.e. you can play them on your computer; but if they do not have transfer rights, they will show up in your player, yet not play correctly/skip).

Transfer only songs that are in Mp3 Format and you will never have this problem.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: NaNO 2G Skips music Mp3 Sometimes Stops

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.

Disable Auto-Sync in Windows Media Player before trying any other method.


These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

SOURCE: INSIGNIA MP3 PLAYER

I had this problem also and I think I figured it out because now my music will play. I took the songs I had from limewire, highlighted them all and clicked "save as", opened it with windows media player and on wmp I took my playlist and named it on there....first I synched the songs under "sync" and they would upload on my player but they would NOT play. I got the same stupid error message. So after they were uploaded onto my mp3 player, i dragged all of the songs onto the right side to make a sync list AGAIN and clicked start sync, all of the files said "already on device" so I kind of got mad thinking it still didn't work...when I unplugged it and tried to play the song, they ACTUALLY PLAYED. I fought with this for so long and contemplated about throwing the stupid thing down the toilet but for whatever reason, synching it in two different ways in that order, it worked and it stopped saying "error:can't open this file"...hope this works for you and anyone else having this problem because I know how frustrating this got for me. hope this helps. Good luck!!!

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.

Adding Songs from CDs onto my MP3 Player


If you're using Windows, then use Windows Media player to rip your music into WMA. If you don't want to do that, use CDdex to rip your music from CD to MP3. The problem probably lies in whatever program your using to rip your music. To your player. http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/

Skipping songs


This generally happens when the music is encoded at a low "bitrate", its called clipping. Only solution is to remove the songs from the device. Best of Luck.

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.

Mneumonic skips over songs


MP3 players i have seen so far are only able to play WMA,Wav,MP3 files. Other files are skipped. Also, there arent many MP3 devices that can play DRM protected Files. Your might be it.
