I have inconsistent second short drop outs 1 sec into the tune. The counter resets and music resumes after what I estimate to be 1 second, though not from the very beginning of the tune, but from the point where the drop out occurred. This behavior repeated itself for several consecutive tunes during a normal album playback. I can then step back (<<) and have the phenomena reproduced several times and step back repeatedly w/o any drop out.
My nano is 16GB, file format ALAC (converted from FLACs) which play just fine in iTunes (and intermittently in the nano as described above).
My earphones are Etymotic and they work just fine. I have also taken great care during testing not to move anything to sort out any loose connections thou I think those seem very unlikely from the nature of the behavior. My earphones work flawlessly with an iPod mini.
