    Check to see if you are in a Demo of the song rather than the full play mode..

    sorry maybe i should have been clearer, it is playing only 3 songs in a row then freeze like it is paused on the next, then i hit fast forward, then it plays the next 3 or 4 songs then just skips 2 then plays the next three, then freezes on the next song ..(Warranty?)

    Strange...did you purchase the songs or are they free content? If you pruchased then...try plugging into iTunes..right click on device name and Transfer Purchases..see if the songs play or download in iTunes without a Caution symbol..Could be there was an issue with the album download content, may need to request a purchase regrant from expresslane.com for iTunes to redownload the music.

     

    -if it was a free album, try deleting the content and downloading again..

    most of the songs have been ripped from cds using a fraunhaufer mp3 decoder

    Okkk...not sure on that one.did you rip the CD to iTunes?..if so there may an issue with the CD quality...did it work on any other iPod device?

    I have used this encoder for all my mp3s used it on older mp3 players(lyra/rca) and my sony psp no issues, all are standard 128 kb/s bit rate

    i also am experiecing the issue aswell and it bugs me... but I am curious, what do you mean by "Demo Mode" and "Full Play Mode"?

    Thanks

    i guess there is a demo mode which only plays 30 seconds of the song...kind of a demo of each song. that is not what the issue is here. i contacted tech support last week. they were a little confused on how to fix the problem. in that I can play the songs through itunes but  the skip or stall on the ipod. the solution they gave me is to re rip my songs off cd that are skipping which is fine for the music I have on cd but not for the other music.I myself thinks this is a software issue not a song issue. i can play all these songs on the computer , on itunes, on other mp3 players but not on my NEW ipod.... hmmm maybe a software issue?. deffinitely contact tech support. its free for first 90 days . maybe they will see a trend and get a firmware update to take care of this
