    I use a NAS as my iTunes storage.
    The NAS isn't really very good and it seems some of the files are a bit corrupt, some of them play for half the song then stop for a bit then skip to the next file as though the rest of the song isn't playable.
    some of the songs just have a slight skipping in the track like a CD is scratched.

    Think is I don't know which are good files and which aren't.

    At the moment when i hear a song hat skips i make a note of that song and re-rip it. but there is over 20,000 songs in my library so this method will take forever.

    Is there a program that can scan my music files to see if they skip in places?

    Thanks.

    Nas

    I don't know of a program.

    But can you guys give more details of your setups?

    What NAS, Mac, OS are you using? Then the rest of us can have more info to help you.

    And you can recommend which NAS not to buy.

    Do the files skip on the iPod or just off of iTunes or both?
