i recently upgraded to the new metalic ipod nano from the previous incarnation. the new version (complete with all relevent upgrades etc.) has trouble playing certain songs that work perfectly on my previous player....
1 song wont play at all and skips to the next track, another plays for 1 second and then jumps....
any ideas???

Try Restoring the ipod. It gives you that option when you plug it in, in itunes. When you restore, it erases everything on the ipod and then reloads it. it should fix your problem!

I had the same problem with my second gen nano as well. All I had to do was a reset, not a restore. You can do a restart by while the iPod is on, slide the lock switch from unlock to lock and then back to unlock again, the holding the menu and middle button together until the screen goes black and the apple logo appears. You can also find instructions on a reset on apples website. It worked for me, didn't require a restore, and can be done anywhere, don't need to be at your computer. Good luck.

All the reset does is turn it off then back on again. if the data is corrupt, the restore will more than likely take care of it.
