I'm having the strangest problem, that I can not figure out. My ipod mini seems to cut off like 30 seconds to a minute on some of my songs. I have checked in my music library, and the songs are fully there. The only way to fix it, is to go and change something in the music tag, then reconnect the ipod so it will re-update that song. If I do that, then the song in question works fine. Some weird behavior that I have seen with my ipod is sometimes it will auto update some songs that were not changed since last time it was connected. So, not sure why it is doing that either. Any help is appreciated. BTW: It is the last rev ipod mini, 4gb. Just bought in August.
