Songs Keep Skipping and Ending Abruptly...Help!!
Hello everybody. I recently bought an IPad for the main purpose of playing music while I'm driving, but I'm encountering a dilemma with the songs which I'm adding.. The scenario is when I play the song on my ITunes, it plays just fine throughout the entire track; but when I drag-n-drop it into my IPad, the song starts cutting up and playing in weird sequences... These same songs worked perfectly fine with my IPod.. I don't understand why the IPad can't just do the same thing. If anyone else shares the same problem please do empathize so I know I'm not the only one with this problem, and if there's anyone out there with a couple solutions, please feel free to share! Many thanks in advance! P.S. I am planning on downloading the updated Jailbreak when it releases, is that a possible solution?
My iPad also skips songs...
I'm disappointed that you posted this months ago with no response! I've re ently realized that my playlists, as well as iTunes University lists, are doing the same thing. It is very annoying when the order matters!
iPad skipping & other strange behavior
Thanks, Tim. I too am using version 4.2.1 The very idea of jailbreaking an Apple product makes me recoil; why would anyone want to mess with something that's great to begin with? :-) I do have games and other high performance apps, and I love trying new apps, so I am frequently deleting less desirable apps to make room for new ones. I try to always leave 9 to 10 GB of space on my 60 GB iPad so it doesn't have space problems; currently it has 10.3 GB left.
Since you seem interested in the problem, I will present you with an example you may be able to duplicate. Since it seems to be worsening, perhaps not, though. The problem is a relatively recent phenomenon, so it is possible I suppose that one of the apps has caused it. I also wasn't using iTunes U downloads until recently, which is when I noticed it wasn't playing selections in sequence. It is very obvious in Jazz Insights, although in the beginning it didn't happen with every series; There are 4 parts to the Miles Davis series, for instance, and it began skipping at the end of parts 2 and 3 to an entirely different series (doesn't always skip to the same one) or back to part 1, but now it skips on every part of every series I've played recently.
The one thing I have not tried is to reset my iPad to its original. I have never had to do this on any of my devices, so I'm not sure how much of a pain it will be--I assume all of the apps will have to reload...
Thanks for your interest,
