Shuffle/ iTMS problems
A online discussion on Apple's support forums details an issue where certain tracks purchases from Apple's iTunes Music Store will . Several Shuffle owners report being affected by the problem. One user wrote: "I have purchased songs from itunes but they will not play on my shuffle. They appear as if they are loaded on the iPod; they play in iTunes on the PC." Another Shuffle owner said, "The unit plays the songs I loaded into itunes from CD fine. Ironically, the songs I purchased from itunes don't work on the shuffle." Yet another iPod shuffle notes that "when my shuffle tries to read the offending songs it needs to be reset by turning it off/on." In most cases, "the offending songs simply refuse to play on my Shuffle." Apple has not provided a fix for the issue.
