My ipodmy ipod shuffle 4th gen does not play whole songs, only parts then goes on to next song

My recently bought ipod shuffle 4th gen does not play whole songs synced to it, only the beginning then goes on to the next song.  What have I done wrong?

I changed the iPod to Disk mode and it just blinks orange while it is connected to the PC. It says that it is synched on the PC screen but I thought the blinking orange light means that it isn't. I took it back out of disk mode. The original problem still exists...when I turn it on, the green light stays lit for 5 seconds then there's no light at all....when I press play the lights alternate orange and green indicating no music is loaded which is wrong since it shows all my songs that are loaded when it is connected to my PC. What a mess.

  • Ipod Shuffle (2nd Gen) Does Not Recognize Songs

    My Ipod Shuffle (2nd Gen) does not recognize the songs that are loaded on it. When I turn it on after a full charge the green light stays on for about 5 seconds then turns off. When I press play, the colors flash orange and green indicating there are no songs loaded. I've tried all the recommendations and also seen that people with similar problems have not been able to resolve the problem as well. I've seen some cases where the use of the Ipod Rest Utility is recommended however I have Vista on my PC and there is no version available for that o/s that I could find. Does anyone have any other suggestions. Thanks.

    how do i set it to play all on playlist?

    On the left side of the Now Playing screen right below the scrubber bar is the repeat control. It is the arrowed racetrack icon. Tap the icon until it is white for no repeat.

  • Ipod shuffle 2nd gen does not charge on new 5W USB power adapter

    Hi,
    my perfectly functional ipod shuffle 2nd gen with original dock will not charge with the new Continental Europe 5W USB power adapter, even though the specs of the power adapter include the 2nd generation shuffle. Shuffle will blink orange three times, longer than normal blinking, and then do nothing. probably nothing I can do about it, but worth a note. The US model of the new 5W adapter does not include the 2nd gen shuffle, so maybe it is an error on the apple specs page.
    Maybe the 2nd gen needs more than 5W to charge?

    indeed, it needs the bigger 12 Watt Adapter and the apple site is wrong.

  • Ipod shuffle 3rd gen does not shuffle any more in shuffle mode

    Hi all,
    I have a ipod shuffle 3rd gen. It does not shuffle the play list even if it is in the shuffle mode.
    anyone came across this issue?
    Thanks,

    Try in order:
    - Resetting the iPod:
    Reset iPod touch:  Press and hold the On/Off Sleep/Wake button and the Home
    button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Restore the iPod via iTunes on your computer.  First from backup and if problem persists restore to factory defaults/new iPod.
    -- If iTunes does not se the ipod try placing the iPod first in recovery mode and then in DFU mode.
    --- Recovery mode:
    iPhone and iPod touch: Unable to update or restore
    --- DFU mode:

    Im Using an ipod touch 4th gen and i have updated the iOS to 6 and nothing happens except the screen is always in apple logo only. and when i connect it to laptop, the ipod does not recognizein windows and also in iTunes

    The Nano uses different drivers than iOS devices like the iPod touch
    See
    iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows
    - I would start with
    Removing and Reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows XP
    or              
    Removing and reinstalling iTunes and other software components for Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
    However, after your remove the Apple software components also remove the iCloud Control Panel via Windows Programs and Features app in the Window Control Panel. Then reinstall all the Apple software components
    - New cable and different USB port
    - Run this and see if the results help with determine the cause

  • My Ipod nano 4th gen DOES NOT sound good.... why? HELP

    My new iPod nano 4 GB does not sound good. I have tried everything: reset it, record new differentd CD's, changed the earphones and nothing works. Music sounds with very bad quality. Is it configuration problem?, is it itunes problem?, is it a manufacturing problem?. What can I do?
    I appreciate you help

    It takes around 2 weeks to get a replacement, a bit less if it is not personalised. Apparently a lot of the ipods coming out of China have audio/visual problems at the moment. Guess they should work on their quality control process.

  • My iPod touch 4th gen does not connect to itunes

    Okay, so I never had problems with my iTunes until recently. Whenever I connect my iPod 4th gen into the computer, it connects and charges but doesn't show up in my iTunes. My iPod works and everything, it just won't connect to iTunes. I reinstalled iTunes completely like it said in support, and I have restarted Apple Mobile Device, several times. I have the current iTunes 10.4 too. Does it have anything to do with connecting my iPad 2 into the iTunes? Because it was fine up until I had done so. Also, when I check my services the Apple Mobile Device service is stopped when I connect my iPod. Before it, it says running though. My iPod will also connect to other computers, just not my own. All other computers have also not had the iPad 2 connected to it. Any thoughts? I would really like to sync my games and music to my library again, without having to go to my sibiling's computer.

    Did you try to create a new user account in Windows, set up your iTunes account, disable autosync and connect your ipod? Try to transfer your purchases and back up manually before your sync for the first time. And don't forget to set up at least one contact and event in Woindows, to ba able to merge contacts and calendars.
    If this works, try to do the same for your ipad. If still ok, you might have to remove all Apple related Software for your other account, as described here: Removing and reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows Vista or Windows 7
    Did you also check your security software settings?
    Additional Information
    If the Apple Mobile Device Service still will not start, or if it stops unexpectedly, this could be caused by third-party security software. Please follow iTunes for Windows: Troubleshooting security software issues.

  • IPod Touch 4th Gen Does Not Sync

    Basically had an black iPod 4th generation for 2 years this christmas. It worked perfectly til September last year and the suddenly out of no where it seemed to stop syncing. I click the sync button and it seems to either do nothing and the sync button becomes unable to click again or it starts to sync and then just stops. My iPod is also does not back up, or sync ANYTHING. Im finding this really stressful as i can't use my iPod to the full ability. Ive done updates with my iPod and my iTunes, everything is up to date and i have also tried many other iPods which worked fine with my iTunes, i did this to make sure it was my iPod which was the problem. Some one please help my dodgy iPod!!!

    Try:
    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Restore from backup. See:                                 
    iOS: How to back up                             
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.
    If still problem, make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store since it appears you have a hardware problem.
