I have disabled the "shuffle on shake" feature of my iPod Nano 5th gen, yet occasionally this still happens. I've noticed, for example, if I have it connected to the aux jack in my car while driving, if I hit a speedbump or pothole, it activates shuffle mode. I've double-checked the setting to the point where I'm beginning to feel a bit OCD. I know this is older hw, but is there some way to permanently disable this feature on my specific device?

    The nano's shuffling is self-generated. Poor thing can't stop shivering at the thought of being replaced by the iPod touch you're trying to win. :D – Adam Eberbach Mar 21 '12 at 19:47

    Come on, guys. You all know that this isn't a real answer. – Nathan Greenstein Mar 27 '12 at 22:55

Have you tried running a full restore of the iPod? I know it's kind of a last ditch thing to do, but it seems like you may be experiencing a hiccup in the hardware. Also, make sure you've got the latest update from Apple installed on it.
