    I found the problem with 2G Touch playing songs in Apple lossless format. During the play and when the screen goes off the songs start hiccupling, sort of stopping and starting again on a random basis.
    This only happens with lossless format, other formats play just fine.
    I exchanged my ipod but the problem is still there.
    Helpdesk suggested to send it for repair but I'm not sure if this can be easily repaired.
    Has anyone else experinced similar issue?
    Is there a fix for it?

    Try re-encoding the songs, does it play well on your computer?

    Yes, it plays well with no problems on my computer and my other ipod, so I figured out it was Touch problem only. I did all testing: tried different formats, deleted and re-recorded the songs, re-set ipod, even exchanged it but the problem is still there.
    the hiccups only occur with lossless files on 2G ipod Touch and after the screen goes dark. When the screen is lit the hiccups don't happen. Weird and hard to explain to Apple support.

    Hickups here as well

    Hi I've had the same problem from the moment I bought my Touch 2G.
    Ame thing plays fine on the mac but not on the pod. Reencoding doesn't help.
    Can't be the data rate as wave or aiff plays fine. Maybe the decoding is to much to handle?
    Any Apple people out there working to fix this?
    Cheers (loyal mac fan)
