So, I bought an EP from the iTunes store (Hot Chip's US Sessions - genius) and popped it onto my iPod (4gig Mini; it's OLD now!). They played just fine for a couple of days, but when I came back to them a coupla days later, they didn't want to play.

On the iPod, they just skip through the song titles and then go back to the menu screen.

Is there some kind of 'playing protection' on the tracks that would limit the number of times they can be played on an iPod? You'da thought that, if you've BOUGHT them from the stores, you'd own the files...

Curses. Help?

Is it just those song are are there other songs that are doing the same thing? I've seen this before and it generally means the iPods firmware has become corrupted and need to be restored.

If your current iPod is still in warranty, take it to the Genius bar and let them look at it.

The 'Mini' was well past warranty. Just went out and bought a 30Gig iPod to replace it...it's a lovely bit of kit.
