    Carlo, it was a clean install on a blanked out HD/SSD and only the one default user nothing else installed, but the stutter started at once. Its 100% an OS problem. I have already posted a sound file of the issue, but here it is again, https://dl.dropbox.com/u/62120797/Mountain%20Lion%20iTunes%20playback%20error19% 20181931.m4a

    How did you put all the information back on your computer? Did you do a full install then take from a time machine back up?

    Since running the re-installation from boot (cmd+r) 24H ago - I have been loading my computer like crazy to make it skip/stutter but impossible. Even with time machine, 2 Virtual Machines, iTunes, Firefox with 10 tabs running - not a single skip?

     

    From that, I'm starting to deduct eventho' we seem to all have this audio skipping/stuttering problem, we don't necessary all have the same symptoms.

     

    For example, since i've been runing 10.8, I've never had any GUI lags or complete audio pause. In fact everything except the audio has been running well, if not better than under Lion.  I've never had a full kernel/system crash either. I think we need to be careful in trying to find patterns with other users considering how many variables there are in a modern operating system. This is not to say that Apple has'nt drop the ball on this one lol

    OK false alarm - it's back lol I definitely think this is definitely a software issue as it seems to get worst over time...but i will be fair - i've simply had enough so switching back to Lion...tried of trying to find a solution for something I paid for in the first place...

    Your having this sound stutter from with in iTunes?  I interpret when some one says "clean install" they formatted the drive. This is not necessary in ML. I have build 12C54 on my computer. I would recomend not using the DVD. The install file is slightly larger than a standard DVD. I would recomend restoring it using command+R while the computer starts up. On that first screen repair permisions. Then when that is done Reinstall OS x. After that is done you will need to do a softwar update on your computer. This you do from the Apple Menu. Install any updates that apear in the App Store. Also ope  your Activity Monitor; do you see any 32 bit applications... just curious?

     

    You can put your iTunes libray on an external HD and if you option click your iTunes icon, you can use that iTunes Library in its entirity and you dont have to move anything over.  (but that is for another day.)

    copied 1 few music tracks from another system into itunes

     

    played music

     

    listened to stutter.

     

    thats it no restore no other installs other than default. nada, nichts, nyet.

     

    Sounds like that music might be DRM-protected music.

    Thank you for your great contributions Carlo TD. Don't you think another reason could be that the track was recorded at full moon while the producer was eating a hamburger? Seems as reasonable as the DRM theory.

     

    I'm going to unsubscribe now thanks to your spam!

    Probably a silly question (but I'm at work so can't check) but would I have had the Lion OSX installation disc when I bought the computer, and if so can I install Lion over Mountain Lion?

    Downgrading Mountain Lion not a good suggestion. I prefer a clean Install if you want Lion back(if you created a Lion DVD installer coz theres no Lion DVD installer that came with buying macs). Back up Manually your User account and restore it after the Lion Installation. Thats me though.

    So glad I found this thread and see that other's are having trouble.

     

    This is all in iTunes for me.  Even songs I purchased from the iTunes store now have horrendous static/skipping issues particularly when moving around the screen or when the screensaver is going.  It also does it all through purchased digital copies of music.

     

    I am a novice when it comes to iMacs so I don't know what to do - does Apple know about this issue?

    Really? Does that mean I'm forced to stick with faulty product?! That's entrapment!

     

    No, I don't have any backups or anything from the lion days.  I have a MyBook Live which became corrupted when Mountain Lion crashed during a backup. The MyBook forum guys said I had to restore to factory settings in order for Time Machine to re-establish connection and start from scratch.

    Its ok. Back up the User Account. You can restore that after Installing Lion. The first Initial User Name that you will create must be different from the User Account that you want to restore. For the Applications you need to reinstall all of those. You're not stuck on ML. You can also go to an Apple Store(Genius) and ask them if them if they can install the Lion back. Sorry this is an off topic.

    Hi,

     

    First post here! and sorry it is not for a better reason than this.... but want to add my voice as also experiencing this issue.... very frustrating, itunes stuttering .... since I am a music nut it renders both my mac and my airplay device basically useless (who wants to listen to jumpy music).  Also I find mountain lion laggy and unresponsive at times.  Checking activity monitor I consistantly have over 4gb of RAM free and half my HDD.  I had no such issues on Lion.  Please fix this apple why oh why did I pay $20 for this....

    Some was DRM of course, some not, but as I can play my DRM protected on upto 5 systems I own and have authorized, that is not the issue. It also happens with streamed from internet, quicktime or ANY other source.

     

    I have reinstalled the OS more times than I care to count. the install DVD has plenty of space, and the image would not have copied if the DVD was too small.

     

    I think my only option now will be to goto the genius Bar and ask them to exchange the logic board. If its a hardware issue that would resolve it.
