Certain songs on my iPod that I bought with iTunes just will not play when I upload them
I just got the ipod classic yesterday, and already encountered a problem within the first 6 hours. after purchasing Tech N9ne's Everready album on itunes and saving it to my ipod, i found that when i chose to listen to the whole album, certain songs just would not play and the whole album would start over, so my ipod would only play the first two songs over and over because the third song did not work, the same problem occured with a few other songs on the album. I don't understand what the problem is, the songs work fine, i just bought them an hour before i uploaded them, is there anything i can do to fix this?

Re: Certain songs on my iPod that I bought with iTunes...
Do they play ok in itunes?
Try resetting your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hello, friend. If you are running iTunes below version 11, I can help you. Open iTunes and plug in your iPod. On the left hand side there should be your iPod name, go to your iTunes playlist and drag the songs you want to your iPod. For all of the songs, go to your iPod music library, even if you don't have songs, and on the bottom there should be a blue-ish bar. There might be a box saying "Autofill from iTunes library" click that ONLY if you want ALL songs from your iTunes to your iPod. Or You may try this ipod transfer, it's
a nice iTunes alternative that can help you manage iPod files including delete,
upload, play, copy, etc. It's much easier to use than iTunes. http://www.ipod-transfer-copy.com/ipod-iphone-to-computer-transfer-cucusoft.html
How Do I Download Songs Onto My iPod Nano? IPod Nanos are portable multimedia players that allow you to playback songs and other content (e.g. video) no matter where you go. They come in a variety of memory sizes such as 4GB or 16GB (gigabytes) and work with iTunes to upload songs. ITunes is the iPod default management program which allows you to upload songs to its library, create playlists and sync music on your iPod quickly and easily. This simple process will have you jamming to your favorite songs in no time.
Downloading to an iPod Nano1Connect your iPod Nano to the computer using the USB cable. Launch iTunes if does not automatically launch. When you launch iTunes, it will display your iPod Nano on the left panel. 2Add music to your iTunes library. Click the "File" button on the top menu and click "Add to Library." Locate the song you want to upload to your player and click "Open" to load it to your program. 3Click the "+" button on the lower left panel to create a playlist. Type a name for the playlist and drag the uploaded file to it. To upload additional songs, repeat Step 2 and drag the uploaded additional songs to the created playlist. 4Drag the songs in the playlist up or down to select the order in which the songs will play. 5Sync your iPod Nano. Click the iPod icon on the left panel after importing songs and adding them to the created playlist. Click the "Music" tab and click "Sync music." Click "Select playlists, artists and genres" and select the playlist you created that contains the songs you want to upload. Click "Apply" to automatically sync and download the songs to your iPod Nano. 6Click the "Eject" button and disconnect your iPod from the computer.
Tips & Warnings Click "Music Store" if you want to purchase a music file. Search for the song on the iTunes store and download it to the iTunes library.
your ipod will not function properly with windows media player. it may play the music but it won;t get functionality from the ipod. You have to use iTunes to get your ipod straightened out. Once you mount it on iTunes you will see the music and be able to add music and delete music.
Are you running the most current version of iTunes? If not try upgrading. After that, try seeing if there is an firmware upgrade. If there is, try upgrading that too. Then try reuploading songs. If it is still not working, it might be damaged or just not working anymore. Only use Itunes when uploading songs to ipod regardless of type.
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! =)
