This is a problem that has been irking me for the past week or two. Whenever I add new files to my library, some of these new files only play until 1:12 and then skip to the end. The skipping point is sometimes 2:00 or 3:00, but mostly 1:12. If I convert these files to AAC files, they are 1:12 minutes long. (or 2:00 and 3:00 if those are the skipping points) This seems to be happening randomly and the song can actually play beyond 1:12 if I start playing at a point after 1:12. The files itself are not corrupt, as I have been able to successfully play them beyond 1:12 with other players (VLC, Windows, etc) There is nothing wrong with the start time and end time, and I also have tried re-installing iTunes, but the problem still remains. I also tried re-adding the problematic files, but they rarely have ever succeeded. The only times this succeeds is when I converted the corrupt files to M4A (or any other compatible format) through a 3rd party software, and re-added them again. Sometimes, even this doesn't work. Does anyone have a solution for this? I've seen this thread (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1756257) but it didn't help all that much.
