Question: My iPod recordings are not playing back as they should. What can I do?

The IT Guy says:
If an iPod is acting odd, one of the best bets is to reset it. Because this procedure can vary a bit depending on the iPod model you are using, refer to Apple’s “iPod issues? The 5 R’s” for instructions on your model. By the way, those 5 R’s are: reset, retry, restart your computer, reinstall, and restore.

It is also possible that the music file you are trying to play is corrupted or in the wrong format. Verify that the file plays fine in iTunes on your computer. If it does not, the problem is likely with that music file rather than with your iPod.
