4th-Gen Playing Same Five Songs Over and Over

I've had a 4th-gen shuffle for about a year now, and I like it for the simplicity. It's nowhere near full, with about 100 songs on it. A couple of days ago, it suddenly started playing the same five songs over and over again, with no warning. I do not have any playlists on the system, these five songs are not not in one specific folder that I know of, and if they are they're intermixed with others in that folder (each folder under the music section of the Ipod when I bring it up the computer has about 20 songs). I have no clue what's going on. Any ideas on how to fix it, or should I bring it somewhere?

EDIT: Wait, is yours a 4th? Cause the 4th haven't been out a year, they came out in September 2010. Do you have a 3rd Gen?

I have a 4th & it's doing the same thing. I just got 2 days ago though, so it's brand new. It's so cute! I loaded it with maybe 30 songs, took it to my car, then I realized it keeps repeating the same 4 or 5 songs while I was driving around. I haven't plugged it back into my computer to check to see what the problem is cause it's still in my car. But I plan to just restore and and start over since it only has about 30 songs and no Playlists right now.

If I see a definite factor that was the problem, I'll post it here.

Yes, it is a 4th-gen. I meant to say I got it last year, not a year ago. It seems a few people have had this problem, but I'm still waiting for a solution from other members here

Restore it and re-sync your songs.



If you don't have a regular, good backup routine for your music and media you will eventually lose it all.
Hint: Using your iPod as your backup strategy is not a good plan.
