Hello. I had forgotten about this forum. Haven't had any issues since May, 2011. Anyway, after having no problems all these months, in the last couple of days, my 64 GB iPod has skipped over 2 songs during playback. While playing along in a particular folder, there's a LONG PAUSE then it skips to the the next song. This has happened twice in the last few days or so. When I connect it to my computer, I then see a character looking like a "bold" exclamation mark in front of the skipped song. I can't get it to play there either. I have had to re-load the song from my back-up each time. PLEASE HELP. THANK YOU, Ed.
