Hello- My ipod shuffle will not shuffle the songs- It plays the same song list over and over.. Any suggestions? I dont really want to create a new playlist, I just am looking for some random songs to play. I have over 200 songs and it plays the same 30.

iPod shuffle, Windows 7

    I would make sure you're not in a single playlist, that may be why you're hearing a certain selection of songs. Try rebooting the shuffle and trying again: Here is how to do that.

    Which shuffle model is it?   This document shows the four types




    For any model, make sure you have it set to shuffle and not play-in-order.  On the 2nd gen shuffle, there is a separate switch for play mode.  On the other shuffle models, the power switch has a middle position, which is play-in-order.  Make sure it's set to shuffle, because play-in-order always starts at the top of the list of songs.


    If it's a 3rd or 4th gen shuffle, it can play from multiple playlists; use the VoiceOver feature and select the All Songs list from the playlist menu.  This is a document for the 4th gen shuffle about setting up and using VoiceOver; the 3rd gen shuffle should be similar.




    1st and 2nd gen shuffle does not have VoiceOver, and only has one list that it plays from.
