Hey all,

As the title says, iTunes will play ~8 seconds of a track and then skip to the next. This is an issue only with albums I've added in the last month or so. My iTunes is up to date, and I checked Get Info > Options and the start/end time is fine. I've also played the tracks elsewhere, and they don't skip, so it seems the files are not damaged.

I'm at a bit of a loss here... I'd hate to reinstall and have to rebuild my library as it takes like 18 hours.

Any advice is really appreciated.

Are these recent albums you added purchased from the itunes store?

If so could you delete and re-download them? I heard someone else have this problem and if I recall after they re-downloaded them all worked fine.

No, they are live albums I've downloaded from archive.org and also some of the Daytrotter sessions, downloaded from their site. It seems to matter little where the files come from, as it's happening to all of them.

Thanks for the reply.
