Hi, I am new to this forum and would really appreciate some help with my newly purchased iPod Shuffle 1 gig. I have noticed since I opened the shuffle and put all my songs on it that whenver I go to play it in playlist order, it will skip random songs. I was listening to an album that had originally 20 songs when I put it on the ipod. The shuffle only played 13 of the 20, skipping random songs and just not playing them at all. I would really like to know why my ipod is skipping these songs in playlist mode and i would like to know how to solve this annoying problem. Thanks guys, much appreciated. Btw, I use Itunes to transfer my music to my ipod.
