My sony nw-507 is stuck going backward through tracks.

It sounds like the hardware. Maybe something sticky made the button stuck, so try light rubbing alcohol with a cloth gently around it, this will get rid of any residue.

If this doesnt help, then the button is broken and not much you can do.

My Samsung YP-U3JQP 2GB MP3 player skips past most of the tracks.

Many WMA's are DRM-protected - the DRM-protected tracks that you have loaded may not have transfer rights, even though they will play fine on a computer. The best bet is to download only songs that are in mp3 format. Another option, which is illegal, is to buy a DRM-stripper and strip your WMA's of the DRM-protection - but, it is illegal, costly, and time-consuming.

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 plays about 5 tunes then stops

The tracks that the ipod skips would be of certain formats the ipod does not support ..... when you load the tracks with itunes it normally prompts you with a dialogue box and asks whether you want to convert it to the specific format ..... Try reloading this way and it should work .,... if still a problem restore it and reload

Playing of certain tracks

Some of those tracks are in the right format, the ones that are skipping are in the wrong format - convert them all to mp3 format and you will be fine

My SA6025 damaging mp3 files!

Make a note of skipping tracks & check these tracks play ok on the PC - this will rule out corrupted tracks.
Skipping of entire tracks can be due to DRM copy protected tracks (purchased on-line). Some players will not play DRM tracks.

You can check for protected tracks.
  • In Windows Explorer, go to the folder where the tracks are stored on your PC.
  • Click on View -----> Details
  • Right click on the header bar in the right hand window and select protected. (If protected is not listed click on More)
  • Tracks will be listed with No or Yes under protected. Check your skipping tracks are listed as No, under protected.
If none of this helps, install and run the Philips Device Manager. Select the repair / restore option and follow the on-screen prompts. This will format the player, ruling out a corrupt file system on the player, and re-load the firmware.

Skipping tracks

Did your music subscription service expire? That would cause it to read every song as zero. Definitely try the rest method first. Disable auto-synchronization feature for all programs that you sync the device to.
