    When you open the music app, which category of music are you choosing?  Album, playlist, etc?

    play list which is also the full content of the ipod,

    i use a play list to control my data base on the pc so i can control play count and up load a random set of songs since my whole data base dose not fit on my nano. This way a play all of my music

    So you cannot sync your entire music library to your Nano, but you do sync a playlist or 1,300 songs or does the playlist only have 110 songs as seems to be indicated during playback?

     

    Something doesn't seem quite right here.  It sounds like you are only playing a playlist that contains 110 songs versus Shuffling your iPod's entire music library, which doesn't contain all the music in your iTunes library.

    when play list is vied on ipod at the main menu it has 1386 on it right now

    when viewing on the computer it shows same 1386 but 82 songs played 1 time and 2 songs played twice

     

    as of right now there are 1302 songs on ipod as shown by computer and ipod playlist all with the same play count

    Have you considered doing a full restore of the device in iTunes to help rule out a possible software issue.  Something still just isn't quite right here and I cannot figure out the missing piece.

    This is a new ipod but yes when i got it as part of the excahnge for my ipod nano 1 Ihooked it up to itunes to make sure it was the latest software.

     

    Also have done reboot of the device

     

    has no one else had this issue or have they just not realised it

     

    As of today 158 played 10 played twice and one played three times

     

    how dose the ipod determin which song to choose in a random shuffel it can't be the play count

     

    fyi I use media monkey to organise my data base and tranfer songs to the ipod, which should have no affect on how the ipod shuffels the songs

    Of course, the key words there being, "should have no affect."  It doesn't hurt to at least try to temporarily use your iPod with iTunes.
