My iPod shuffle will stop playing after a few songs which is very frustrating while out walking.  I end up having to shut it off for about a minute or two and then turn it back on.  Sometimes it will start playing again, but it will start playing the same songs over again.  I can't go forward or go back.  When I try to skip a song, all I get is dead air.  I took it back to an Apple store and they replaced it free of charge; which I thought was great... that is until the new iPod started doing the exact same thing.  I've downloaded songs from the iTunes store as well as songs off of my personal CD's.  I've tried deleting all the songs and re-installing them... nothing seems to solve this problem.  I know it only costs $50; but if Apple can't get a $50 item to work; why in the world would I want to invest more money in an Apple product?  It's a good thing this was a gift.... I'm just not happy with this product and there doesn't seem to be a good explanation for this.

iPod shuffle (4th generation)
