Really Weird iPod Problem

Hi All,

My 5G 30 GB iPod has been acting up lately. Every time I listen to music on it it always says a different number of total songs. Such as yesterday afternoon it said I had 300 songs and last night before bed when I listened to it it said it had 314 and right now it still says 315. I don't think I've dropped it lately. I guess it really doesn't bother me I'm just curious about what might of happened.

Thanks in advance!

Where are you checking the total song count? Could you be playing from differently sized playlists?
Some things are better mad...

Along with mad jew's suggestion, a good option when your iPod is giving you trouble is to reformat it and upload all your music back onto it.

The iPod uses a database file of all the songs on it. It is possible for it to get corrupted (has happened to me before).
