Ipod 80GB skipping over songs or not seeing some songs in itunes
I have songs in my play list that are not playing on my ipod. They are just skipped over to teh next song it recognizes. All the songs do play in itunes.
I can hear the ipod as it is searching or trying to read the song. I never heard this from the ipod before. Anyone have any ideas?

If the file is corrupt, then it will skip until it finds one that it can play. I had this on some songs I ripped from a scratched up CD. At a certain point, the files are not clear enough for the iPod/iTunes, and will be skipped. This can also happen if you've unplugged without ejecting the iPod first while you were transferring music. I would recommend either playing a different song, or if it is doing it to all of them, put the iPod into DFU mode. You should be able to google that and have no problem with it. It will wipe your iPod, however.
Hi, Your music is probably in the wrong format or the individual files are corrupted in some way. If the same songs are skipped everytime, delete those songs. Check the format on them by right clicking on them and selecting 'properties'. Check to see if they are formatted in MP3 format or a format that the iPod can play. If you ripped them from a CD, they will be in AAC format which takes up more room on your iPod.
When you rip a CD into iTunes, you can choose what format to rip it as. Try it. Hope that works.
the songs that are skipped by the ipod are unrecognised(unplayable by ipod) formats......when adding the songs via itunes and syncing it the itunes software will ask you whether you want to convert the format to ipod format ....select yes and the problem will be solved .......
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! =)
