The music plays for 10 seconds then goes onto the next song and the next song continuing to play for just 10 seconds. I have gone into the repeat sub menu, hit repeat and then normal and it corrects itself to play the music in entirity. The problem is that I have to do it every time I turn the player on. How can I set the default? Also, the music seems to start at the same point every time I turn the player on.

Re: Downloaded music plays for 10 seconds
First try to reset:
First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides
back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the
left, here's how you reset:
You can reset 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.
If that doesn't work, try a restore:
How to restore iPod
Ensure that you
have an active Internet connection as new versions of iTunes and iPod
Software may need to be downloaded to your computer.
Download and install the latest version of iTunes if you do not already have it installed.
Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore
options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest
iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.
progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the
first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is
completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with
instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).
Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).
the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as
well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to
the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you
to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when
you connected your iPod for the first time.

Its because the songs are set to shuffle every 10 seconds. Click on a song (any song will do) hit pause so it stops playing. Click on the gear icon at the top right of the screen. Scroll down the list to "Advanced" then make sure "Replay Interva" is set at 1. If it already is I would contact Visual Land Support witch can be found here: http://www.visual-land.com/support_form.html
You can't "backwards sync" (put music from your iPod back onto your computer) through iTunes. When you went to sync after you got your fixed computer back, I'm assuming iTunes tried to copy what was in iTunes (nothing) to your iPod, which probably is what caused these problems.
Assuming you still have the music on your iPod, I would recommend transferring the music from your iPod back to your computer (to a folder other than iTunes), restoring your iPod to factory settings, then moving all of the music files into iTunes and re-syncing your iPod.
There are two programs that are available to transfer songs from your
iPod back onto your computer. The first is iDump and the second is
YamiPod. I have found that iDump is the better of the two.
The link for iDump is: iDump
Sounds like the player is running in INTRO mode, only playing the first part of each song. To change playback mode, follow the steps as described below.
Switch the player ON and start music playback:
1. Press PLAY button to START music to play
2. Press PLAY button again to PAUSE the playback
3. Press MODE button to enter playback mode selection
4. Scroll with MODE button through selections
5. Press MODE button when selection REPEAT is in the display
6. Use MODE button to select from: Normal, Repeat One, Repeat within current Folder (if any), Repeat Folders (if any), Repeat All songs, Random Play back, and Intro
7. Press MODE button to confirm selection
Try converting the songs into a different format because the format that the song is in might not completely be played on the ipod. Right click on the song and click on convert to mp3. Then try transferring the mp3 format song onto the ipod and it should play right then.
It would help to have a manaufacturer/model number, but most likely you downloaded a sample version of the song rather than the entire song. Alternatively, you could have a music service that forces you to buy the song to play the entire thing. Change music services or double-check to make sure you are downloading the full verison.
you should check the settings on the mp3 player. I remember that many mp3 players have a setting called play the first 10 seconds of every music. Anyway check the similar setting on your mp3. Goodluck!
I just had the same problem with my 2GB silver nano. I had to restore the factory settings through iTunes and reload all of my music.
There was also an update for the nano that I downloaded yesterday (Jan. 29, 2006) and installed when I restored the factory settings. My nano appears to be running fine for the moment,but we'll see if this actually took care of the problem.
