I have been perusing the boards and can't seem to find this specific problem so I am going to post it hoping this hasnt been covered too many times before. About a month ago my 20 gig iPod color that I got in august started acting funny. it isn't skipping songs or skipping in the traditional way. it is skipping the last half or third of songs. It will only happen on one song (i.e. not track after track of half songs, but randomly) I have tried a clear/reset. I have tried re-rippign the songs, though it doesn't seem to be associated with any particular songs. Recently (this weekend) it started "skiping" just prior to actually prematurely moving on to the next track. I don't think it has anything to do with the skip protection because it happens equally as often when I am moving or sitting still. If anyone has a solution other than to send it in I would be so happy.
