    I don't know where to put this. I have a couple of things I randomize. iPod and photos on the screensaver. In both cases I have a ton of items but for some reason in both cases songs or photos tend to pick similar or the same songs. Or the same artist/album many times every other time ir the like.

    This is just annoying. It doesn't matter whether the Mac has 32 GB or 12. Or the iPod one or a few others I have. I wish there was a way to reset the randomizing algorithm. Is there? It's only truly annoying with music where I have like 1,900 songs but it seems to act like I have 150.

    Still this annoys me. On my iPod I reset it, so now I have a new set of songs it randomizes. But then they start repeating again, so I have to reset it again. On my MP I don't know how to reset. It's just annoying to me.
