I recently converted a few CD's to Apple Lossless and whilst they play perfectly fine on my iMac, they exhibit some strange problems when played on my 3G iPod. I've noticed: 1) Song will have a very brief pause with no sound, usually within the first 10 seconds of the song. 2) Song will play for about 5 seconds and then skip to the second song. The weird thing is, after skipping to the next song, if i press back to the song that was skipped, it will play perfectly fine. And sometimes the song that skipped on a previous album listen, works fine the next time. I assumed this was a buffering problem and hopefully isolated to my older model iPod. But I want to upgrade to 5G iPod, and unfortunately read a few occurances of this problem on the Apple support forums, so i wanted to get opinions from users here as well.... Has anyone experienced problems with Apple Lossless playback on their iPods?
