I recently put some new music on iTunes. One song will play in iTunes and on my 5th and 6th generation Nanos, but will not play at all on my Classic. Whenever I select the song, it just goes automatically to the next song. Is there any reason for this song not to work on only one of my iPods?

    What format is this track encoded in and at what bit rate?  You can view this information by right->clicking on the video and choosing Get Info -> Summary tab.


    This is the only track you are aware of that is giving you issues?


    Have you tried removing it from the iPod Classic and resyncing it?


    Perhaps it would be worth it to work through the troubleshooting in this Apple support document.
