    Suddenly my iPod will not play any of the music I've downloaded from the iTunes store. It will skip right over those tracks. If I force it on an iTunes track it will sit at 0:00 the entire time. It plays the tracks from my CD collection just fine. Any sugesstions? I have over 200 songs from the iTunes store so this is a big deal. Oh, and I have a 4th gen, click wheel non-color iPod.

    Your iPod will not play purchased music on your computer
    If you have problems playing purchased music from your iPod with your computer, make sure that your computer is authorized to play the music. You will need to authorize each computer that will play the purchased music. Sometimes you may need to de-authorize and then re-authorize your computer to get purchased songs to play.

    Try deauthorizing and reauthorizing you iPod.

    good luck!

    Well, I reauthorized my iMac and that didn't help. So I ended up having to restore my iPod but now it works perfectly again. I'm still not sure why it happened in the first place but at least it's fixed now.
