I am not sure what is going on but, I this is starting to happen a few too many times. I bought an album used off amazon, & ripped it into my itunes library, synced it to my ipod & after playback of it on my ipod the 2and to the last track skips & jumps all over the place, & I have error correction checked in itunes import options. So, thinking I got a bad disc, I return it to amazon & buy another new copy of it from ebay. When I get my 2and copy, I delete the 1st rip of the 1st skipping album from my itunes library. Then I re import or re rip the new 2and copy of the album into my itunes library. I do another ipod sync syncing the new good copy of the album (to my eyes it looked clean without any big scratches). I play it on my ipod & the same 2and to last track is skipping like crazy again. I cant believe that 2 copies bought from 2 different sources of this same album can have a skip in the same place, unless there was a mass mistake in this album manufactured?
What is happening? I am tired of having to go back all the time to be sure I am getting a good rip of each of my albums. In addition, another recent album I just acquired (not the same one I am talking about in the above paragraph) also ripped into itunes with skips.Up until recently, I have not had very many if any problems like this until now.I even double checked both these albums; played them on my cd player & there were no skipping in the songs that skip on playback on my ipod.
I do check my discs to be sure they are clean, & that my drive is clean.
