So I have been going through my iTunes collection - backing up and getting missing artwork, etc. and I have noticed that several songs end early/get cut-off. This happened to one song a while back that was a download from the iTunes store. I figured the file somehow got corrupted so re-bought the song from the iTunes store. Now that it has happened to several songs I am suspicious that there must be another issue than one corrupt file.

The files that cut off early are AAC format. There may be some older MP3 formatted songs that are effected as well but I have not found any as of yet. The recently effected files are ones I imported from my CD collection; but as mentioned above, I have had issues with iTunes store songs as well.

I also recently deleted all the songs from my Windows 7 PC and transferred all the files from my Mac Mini (where I keep the 'master' copies), using 'home sharing'.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post

Any suggestions?

I use a Mac Mini 10.4 and a Windows 7 PC. I keep both iTunes libraries synced up.

Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.4.4), Windows 7

    Did you ever find an answer for this?


    I have been having the same darn problem and it's driving me nuts!

    I have the same problem.  It's disappointing that there aren't more replies to this issue two years later.  I just delete the song from iTunes and then delete the song file in the iTunes Library.  Then I go back to the store and redownload it.  It asks if you would like to "purchase" the song again.  Say Yes.  You can download the song for free(You won't have to pay again). Then you have to listen to that song to see if it's complete. Sometimes I have to do this several times before I finally get the full song   WHY??? When there are several songs on one album that are incomplete this can be a very tedious process.  I bought an album today and a few of the songs are cut off like this.  So I'm off to try to get my money's worth...
