    My iPod will not move from one song to another without my manually choosing the song. It will not shuffle either.

My son helped me figure out the problem - When you are on the "now playing" screen, Tap the screen and you will see an info line appear that shows the minutes of the song, - On mine it is at the top under the song playing line. To the right and Left of the minutes you will see Arrow Icons - touch the arrows - one is for only one song - the other is for continuous play. It fixed my problem and I learned something at the same time!!! good luck

I have the same problem with not being able to shuffle from song  to song.  They just repeat until I pick each song.  When I start an album only the first song plays.

6th gen. nano has shuffle issues. plays same song over and over


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.

IPod classic stopped shuffling this weekend. I've had it for several months and it's worked just fine, but all of the sudden it stopped shuffling songs within playlists that were set to shuffle. ...


Hey press the play pause button and the enter button at the same time if it has a lock move it baca and forte 6 times while holding play pause button and enter/centered button for 6 seconds, that should solve from freezing ipods to non functioning well :)

My ipod nano keeps playing the same song over and over, even on shuffle.


The shuffle setting is essentially random, which does _not_ mean that you won't hear the same song again until all other songs play. You might even hear the same song twice in a row, I suppose.

Are you hearing the same group of songs, and your other songs _never_ play?

If you scroll manually to a song that you haven't heard, and start play from there, does it revert to that same group songs, or play on to others?

All else failing, have you tried to restore your iPod?

Have you tried changing the playback settings in your iTunes preferences? You should be able to adjust the setting to make it _less_ likely for songs to repeat. I don't know how that would transfer to the iPod..

Hope this message can be fix to your ipod nano.

Everytime a song finishes on my Ipod touch, it comes back to main menu and the songs stops instead of going to the next one. How do I fix this?


Using the ipods audio settings, program the playback features to shuffle playlist, or even continous play. The music should shuffle once these settings applied to the audio on the ipod. Explore the ipods settings features, unless audio shuffle.

Audiobook download


Playing Songs, Audiobooks, and Podcasts on iPod shuffle iPod shuffle allows you to play your audio files in a couple different ways—you can play songs, audiobooks, and podcasts in the order in which they appear on your player, or let iPod shuffle work its namesake magic for you (that is, shuffle the files by playing them randomly).
Show Me How
If you want iPod shuffle to play audio files in the order in which they appear on the player, move the switch on the top of the iPod shuffle to the play in order (circular arrows) position. If you want iPod shuffle to play songs in random order, move the switch to the shuffle (crossed arrows) position.
ip02_playfnky_04_shuflebutton.gif This iPod Shuffle is set to shuffle.
To play music, an audiobook, or podcast, just press the Play/Pause button. To skip to the next song (or a different song if you're in shuffle mode, or a different chapter if you're listening to an audiobook or podcast), press the Next/Fast-forward button. To fast-forward through the audio, hold down the Next/Fast-forward button. To go back to the beginning of a song (or the previous chapter), press the Previous/Rewind button; press this button twice to go to the previous song or hold it down to rewind through the file.
To stop play, press the Play/Pause button during play. To turn off iPod shuffle, move the switch to the Off position (you shouldn't see green beneath the switch).
