Could it be related to the kind of music files you are playing? What format
are they in? Do they have a particular high or low bitrate? Were they
encoded using unusual/uncommon encoder settings?
What model ipod do you have? (for your reference, I have an ipod video
60GB, and I do not experience any freezing whatsoever on playing q4 vorbis
files encoded using recent oggenc encoders)
