Odd behavior since iTunes 10 and still isn't working in 10.5.1. I haven't found any solutions elsewhere so I'm throwing it to our community here: Random songs that I have imported stop playing and skip ahead to the next track. It occurs at the same point of the song each time and, when it happens, iTunes' display quickly shows the slider full/complete, the correct end time of the song, and moves to the next track. The play count is advanced as if the song completed normally. If I open the file in QuickTime from the iTunes Music folder it plays without an issue. I am also unable to use the slider on these songs to skip ahead. If I try to move ahead just a bit, no problem. Further on in the song it will skip backwards to a certain point, the same each time. Also, trying another suggested fix, I converted the original file (.mp3) to AAC, and the new file's duration is only as long as the original file would play in iTunes. For example: Original .mp3 track is 4:07 long and plays fine out of iTunes In iTunes it consistently plays and ends at 2:26 When this happens the display quickly shows 4:07 (2:26 -> 4:07) and moves on to the next track, advancing the play count If I try to skip past 2:26 it starts at 2:26 and ends If I convert the .mp3 file to AAC using iTunes the new file is only 2:26 long Thank you for your assistance.
