    Every once in a while, I will notice a song in my library that has a time listed that I know is shorter than the song's actual length (for example, a song I know to be 5 minutes+ will be listed in the library as 1:37). When I play the song, the time adjusts to the proper time, so that is not the problem. However, if I sync my iPod, iTunes will only sync the time listed (1:37 in the example) to the iPod! It seems to be 100% random in the songs it effects and time it changes it to. Please help me out!

    It will make songs longer also, but that is not as much of a problem because it will go on the iPod, show the "longer" time and then just go to the next track once the actual music is over

    Were these downloaded songs or burned from a CD, It might be a bad batch of songs and depending where you got them from try to reload them.

    Songs I bought, songs I ripped - it will do it to anything.

    Same thing happened to me. I noticed that this happened with both an iTMS song and a song I ripped from a cd.

    The funny thing is is that I know for a fact that they played normally on my iPod before.

    Yea, not too happy about this.


    <looks at watch, awaiting another iTunes/iPod update>

    Anyone have any ideas?
