    I have a lot of podcasts in itunes, and usually i'll take the new ones and if you just drag them out of the itunes window onto the desktop, it makes a copy of the mp3 file

    then i burn them and listen to them in my car

    i noticed that for some of them, i would be like halfway through the episode, and get to where i was going or whatever, turn the car off

    when i get back in and turn the car on, the cd player skips the rest of the episode and begins the next track

    what i figured out was that, when you look at the details on the files some show a 00:00 for duration, even though there like 20 min long

    so i just re encoded them and the new files do show the correct duration in their details, and this solves the problem in the car

    i dont know if this is the particular podcast's problem, or itunes itself

    but i wanted to let anyone know if they were discovering this problem.
