I'm not sure what's going on with my Ipod shuffle, but I have been using it for a while and up until now it hasn't given me any problems. but just last week I noticed that some of the songs started to skip... like a cd skips when it's hit. it has gotten progressively worse. Since these songs were downloaded some time ago and have not given me any problems until now, I don't understand why this has started to happen. The music is even skipping when I play it from the music library on itunes in my computer. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHY THIS IS HAPPENING???
