    Morning Chaps.

    As stated in the title, every now and then when I'm playing music through iTunes the playback stutters. I.e stops for a second or two then continues.

    This happens even when only iTunes is running on the macbook and I have checked for memory/CPU hoggers and there is nothing to suggest that the laptop is under undue stress.

    I'm hoping you guys can help me out.

    The specs are in my signature, and the iTunes music files are stored on the 750gb hd in the optibay adapter - not on the SSD.

    Going out on a limb but have tried playing any music from the ssd?

    It might be slowing down when playing from the opti-bay but it really shouldn't and it's not like your macbook is that slow or old

    Did it ever do it before or just recently?

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I have tried that as well.

    It only started recently.....I really cant understand why. It is very intermittent, pretty much only happens about once a week, but it gets really bad - For instance a 4 minute song will take around double the time due to the cutting out.
