Song counter does not advance as song is supposedly playing.
I have reset and restored my iPod several times as well as moved the hold button on and off several times, but none of that corrects the problem of choosing a song to play, the iPod stating that it is playing, but it does not and the play counter is not advancing. I can hit fast forward and it will advance to a number but it sits there as well. I believed it had to be a hardware issue of some sort but do not know which piece of hardware is at fault. I have reinstalled 20-21Gb of data to the hard drive every time I reformatted it so I do not believe it is a hard drive issue. The battery definitely needs replacing but when it is full & plugged in I still cannot play a song so I doubt it is simply the lack of a fresh battery. Please help.
