The iPod's shuffle feature lets you randomize playback of albums, songs or even your entire music library. You may also find this feature useful if you want to listen to forgotten tracks in your library or discover songs you haven't listened to yet. Disabling the shuffle feature will return playback of a song list to its standard consecutive order. You can enable and disable the shuffle feature at any time.
Navigate to the main menu. Select "Settings." Scroll to the "Shuffle" option. Select "Songs" or "Albums." If you select "Songs," the iPod Classic will shuffle the songs on whatever song list you listen to. If you select "Albums," the iPod Classic will play all songs of an album you select in order and then randomly select another album. Navigate to the playlist or album to which you want to listen. Play a song to initiate the shuffle. b> iPod Nano and iPod Touch Tap the "Songs" icon on your nano home screen. If you are using an iPod Touch, open the "iPod" application. Navigate to the song list, playlist or album you want to play. Tap the "Shuffle" icon at the top of the list to activate the feature.
While playing a song, press the Quick Options Menu button (small circle), you will see an option for "REPEAT", choose from:
No Repeat Play tracks in normal order and
One Play the current track repeatedly.
All Play all tracks repeatedly.
RandomAll Play all tracks in random order.
Dir Normal Repeat all tracks in the current
Dir Rep Repeat all tracks in all folders.
Dir Random Play folders in random order.
This is determined by the play mode. When playing a song press the MODE button on the side of the player. Then select PLAY MODE. Then choose which option best suits you. Repeat All will play through all of your folders and sub folders and Random will play anything randomly as far as I've been able to tell.
I had this problem as well. The only real solution I've found is to open up MY COMPUTER and go into the device. From there you can transfer all the music into one folder.
There is a RANDOM setting on the player but it will only randomize the songs within the folder you are listening to.
To put the player on RANDOM play a song, and press the button on the side of the player, select PLAY MODE and choose RANDOM.
Hope this was helpful.
Get a song playing. Click menu and a menu, starting with Repeat will come up. Click play on Repeat and a new menu will come up. About two thirds the way down is Random. Click play on random AND Bob is your Uncle.
If your Matsui is working suggest you leave well alone -- I've been looking for utilities (new firmware, reflash utility and firmware extractor) and it's all very confusing.
Apart from the ghastly menu system the only problem I've had with mine £8 ($16 used from a flea market) is that Win XP's data write-behind feature means that XP merrily suggests that file transfers are complete when the player is still digesting the files. If you interrupt this by mistake XP stops responding or complains that data has been lost.
