    I have a similar problem, on my video ipod the songs/videos go in to pause by themselves, tried the 5r's and no dice, anyone has a tip for this?

    is this purchased music/videos or from a place other than the itunes music store?

    On my case, it happens with any music/video file in an random fashion, am I missusing any ipod function or is it broke? I only have it for like 2 weeks

    does Apple have any solution to this b/c the apple store did not help very much.

    Heys,
    I bought my ipod video in November '06,
    its having the same probs.. i have about 20 GB worth of songs,
    i've had these songs in my pod for over 6 months now
    it just skips through and only plays about 50 songs,
    it only plays songs which are in my current itunes library
    this is the first time it happened, about an hour ago..
    i tried resetting, etc..
    still not working though..

    i am having the same problem. have you gotten an answer from apple? i would love to just get mine exchanged. i also have the camera connector becasue i was leaving for europe. then i got over here, uploaded my pictures to it and then a few days later they dissappeared. now i have to listen to my songs on shuffle becasue every day it decides it wants to play different songs. One day it will play a song, and the next it will just skip over it. how irritating! i have 60 gb of space, and i can only play 5.... : (

    I'm having a similar problem where when I select a specific song it just skips it and goes to the next, it's really annoying and I've tried a restore but the same thing still happens.

    It's been happening since the new firmware update so I'm thinking it's that.

    ...Hmm just noticed this thread is kind of old so it might be a different problem.

    I am having the same problem. Did anyone get any answers? I exchanged the Ipod I purchased a few weeeks ago. The store said it was a glitch in the system. Apple states there is no problem. Purchased another one on Friday it worked until today, at the gym it skipped a whole playlist. Yes count me ANNOYED!! Even contacted the Geek Squad they said to just reset and restore. Thanks for the advice it did not work. Any suggestions???
