    i have a new install of Windows 7, and my itunes library on an old HDD connected to the rig, all set up fine on itunes, except now i get skipping in loads of tracks (though not all) that were previously fine. it doesnt seem to make a difference wether they are tracks imported from cd, or itunes store.
    sometimes the skip is preceeded by a static hiss for a second or so, though not always. and it can occure at multiple points in tracks.
    any ideas what this could be and how to solve it would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you tried changing the settings on the equalizer? I'd also try changing the preamp volume around.

    no its nothing to do with equalizer settings or any other settings,
    i dont know whether somehow the files are damaged, and if so how i would go about restoring them, since a lot of the music is off CDs i no longer have.
    thanks

    some are mp3, others in Apple lossless audio format (cant remember the suffix), it seems not to matter what format they are in. very odd

    You could get MP3 Diags to see if any of the Mp3 files are damaged. Download here, click on Windows 32bit installer.

    Also run the TSG SysInfo Utility and post the results.

    i dont think mp3 diags will cure this, since many (maybe all) of the problem tracks are other formats, such as mp4. they suffer the same stattic moments when run in quicktime, but it does not skip the rest of the song when played on it.

    Put a couple tracks on your C: drive and see if they act the same way.
