    Unhappy FLAC to ALAC problem (skipping tracks)

    I'm converting my FLAC music files to Apple Lossless (ALAC) so I can put the files on my iPOD. The files convert fine. The sound quality is fine. They transfer to the iPOD fine. The problem comes when I am playing the music on my iPOD. If I play an album, it will skip everyother song. (ex: play track 1, then skip to track 3, then to 5, etc.)

    The albums play fine in iTunes (no track skipping). It's just on my ipod. Any help?

    This is a known problem. I think one fix is to run the "m4a optimize" utility codec on the files after converting to ALAC, which is in the "m4a utilities" codec on the m4a codec page.
