Got a strange problem, which is hopefully easy to fix. I've had the iPad since launch and had iPhone 4 since launch and iPhone 3G before that. In all that time, this has never happened before. The other day, I was listening to a playlist on my iPhone while walking somewhere. The first few tracks played normally, but then one track started in the middle of the song. I checked the phone and saw that I could rewind it back to the start, or even use the skip back button to restart the song... But if I was to go back to the song before and then skip forward, the song always starts at that point near the middle. Most of the songs were fine, but some more did this. I remembered that on iTunes (OSX) you can choose to have specific tracks start at certain times (I.e. Skip some of the song). I checked the affected songs and they were fine on iTunes. Nothing changed in the settings as far as I could tell, and they played from the start as they should. I meant to look further into this problem, but I was busy so forgot about it for a few days. I have the same music on my iPad. I've today noticed that the same tracks are doing the same thing on my iPad! Those tracks are starting mid-song, as if it has synced some kind of moment, the same way the devices remember where you were last in a film or a book in iBooks. I don't think the problem has come from iTunes. Firstly, I checked the settings on those songs and they should play at the start (and they do on the Mac) and also I remember in the past I deliberately did try cutting the start of a song with an annoying ending and noted back then that it didn't make any difference to the track on my synced iDevice anyway. Anyone have any idea what's going on? Sorry if it's a dumb question with a simple solution, but I'd really appreciate some help. I listen to my music all the time and having my fave tracks skip to the middle of the song is really irritating.
