Some times the current track skips to the next one

Some times when is playing the track the equipment jumps in the middle of the track an goes to the next one.

so far it only happen when I use it in "shuffle" i don't use it in "Cover Flow, Artist, Albums or Songs" just in Shuffle

I hope this is just software issue...

very strange, i would have guessed that the sometimes improper vbr encoding is the problem.

had a mp3 radio in one of my cars - vbr encoded files had those skipping issues sometimes - cbr never (vbr: variable bitrate encoding cbr: constant bitrate encoding)

Wow! work just like magic!

I turn the files from VBR to CBR and work just fine, now the tracks don't skip to another.

Thanks a lot for the tip Markus!!!

It's a common problem on my 120Gb classic! When i got it, it would skip at random places in songs, to nex track. Very annoying.

After reading up on several forums, i found out it is a common problem and there was no firmware updates that would help. There was a work around, though: The light on the display is set to always on, and turned down to 0%.

It worked for me. I can't say if it will work for you, but you might aswell try it.
