I got a new laptop because the old desktop died. I exported my library to an external HD before the death of my desktop, and then imported it into iTunes once installed on the new machine.
Songs that I purchased from the old desktop now have trouble with playback. They all start fine, but at some point during the song, it stops playing. Pause isn't on, the progress bar doesn't move, and you can't get the song to re-start. My only option has been to click for the next song, and then it goes to the next song and plays on with no trouble.
Songs I purchased from my iPhone (3GS) during the pre-laptop time transitioned with no problem.
What's a music lover to do?
