I have a 6th Generation iPod Nano. There are a handful of songs in my library that it will not play in their entirety. The iPod will play a few minutes of the song and then skip to the next track. The songs play fine in iTunes.

These are tracks that I purchased from the iTunes store. They are in the Protected AAC format.

I have done a full restore of my iPod and it didn't fix the issue.

I believe I have noticed the same behavior with my iOS 6 iPhone 4S. Very strange indeed. – bassplayer7 Feb 5 '13 at 3:30
