I recently bought an ipod classic - and loaded my full itunes library.
Most of the songs loaded fine - but a significant minority (c 25%) only play the first 2 mins, after which are silent for the rest of the song. I have not managed to identify a common theme among these
When i play the songs from itunes direct, it's fine - or from my ipod when plugged in. It only happens when i play my iPod offline
