A friend of mine has an iPod with click wheel and is having issues when downloading his music from iTunes. His issues is some times some, not all of the songs partially download so he would get 13 seconds of a song versus the whole thing and it has happened on different songs many times. The music plays fine in the itunes library. he has the most recent version of itunes and updater. He reformatted his iPod and reloaded - same issue. This is on a Windows Platform. And the music is from a ripped CD. I have never experienced this issue with my 1st Gen iPod and did not see any reference to it on the Apple site. Thought I would give you guys a whirl to see if there was any advice on this issue. Thanks.
