I have a problem with my itouch. This is the third itouch in the last week in a half to have the same problem. It skips a millisecond on a song like an LP if you will on my itunes collection. One time it even stopped playing and crashed sending an error to Apple once synced to my Mac. If you play the song again it does not skip on the same place as before. I also use simplify media so I can have my over 30,000 track collection on the go. It never skips using that. I have a two other ipod touches that are 16gb one first and one second generation but they don't skip. Three brand new so far with the same issue. The MAC genius bar says its my problem if it does it again because he said it must be my software. I don't use anything else on it but simplify media and it does not effect the others. It is frustrating and makes it unlistenable. All my tracks are Apple lossless and over a TB of disc space. Thanks for all responses!
