View Full Version : Some songs not working on iPod touch

Oct 6, 2007, 08:32 AM
I have some songs that sync fine, but won't play on my ipod touch. The music won't play then the track skips to the next in the playlist. I bought the song on iTunes.

Has this ever happened before? This is my first iPod so I apologize if this is a common problem.

I had a similar problem a few days ago, but wasn't able to reproduce it. When I was syncing back with iTunes, it asked me if I wanted to send some error infomation to Apple. The iPod obviously stored the error info. To me it looks like a minor bug that will be erased with the next software update.

Oh okay. So you didn't have problems with those songs on your old iPod? (I assume you had an old one)

In that case I won't bother re-ripping those albums for now. Thanks for the info! :)

No, they were playing fine on the white iPod.

I do also have the problem with song-skipping on my ipod classic.

For some reasons some songs are always being skipped and some are
skipped randomly.

The songs being skipped are mostly long files (audiobooks, podcasts).

Re-syncing, Reset, Restore did not help.

The files itself seem to be ok because iTunes will play them and my
old iPod 1G also.

I fixed the problem!

Followed the instructions listed here: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=300766

And it seemed to fix my iPod. I did have to deauthorize, then restore my iPod, but thankfully I didn't need to re-create my iTunes library. :)
