Finding more and more songs in my iTunes library that seem to suddenly finish about halfway through and skip to the next track. This even includes recently purchased music. If I click ahead to beyond the point where it stops it just skips ahead anyway like half the song is corrupted. This happens on both my iMac 27" running Lion and iTunes 10.5.1 an also my iPhone 4. Strangely it does not always happen on the same tracks. For example, a song that stops prematurely on the imac may or may not do the same thing on the iPhone.

Case in point, I just purchased an album on iTunes. At 2.54 in the first track (which should run til 4.32) the song just skips ahead to track 2 on the iMac. The album synced automatically to my iPhone via iCloud and the same song played fine all the way til the end.

I've checked the start / stop times under track info and all is normal.

Anyone got any clue why this is happening?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.2)
