    i have about 3200 songs. when i shuffel from the main menu it shows it is playing x out of 2800 songs, a diff of about 500. i have about 500 church sermons from 15 min - 90 min a piece. does the shuffel automaticaly leave out long songs. where is the cut off point?
    any one else notice this with really long files (sermons, audiobooks, concerts recordings)

    figured it out

    i figured out the problem right after the previous post:
    my ipod:
    total songs 3225
    songs when pressing shuffle 2680
    a difference of 545.

    then i looked and i have 545 church sermons. in audiobooks under the music section of the ipod 545 sermons show up. i think it becuase i encoded them in aac and changed them to be bookmarkable since some are kinda long.

    so i think the shuffle leaves off any file that is considered bookmarkable.
    maybe this will help someone.
