I’m having an issue with the Shuffle function. What I want to do is play every song in my music library in random order, so I went to Settings > Music Options and turned Shuffle ON. Then I go to Music > Shuffle, and a random song starts playing. But after that, it just plays songs in alphabetical order.
While a song is playing, I can press the Menu button, which shows me that Shuffle is ON. If I turn Shuffle OFF and back ON, then the Shuffle icon appears at the top of the screen. When I press Next, a random song starts to play, which is exactly what I want. After that? Back to alphabetical, and the Shuffle icon is gone. Check the settings, and yes, Shuffle is still ON. Except it’s not.
I spend a lot of time driving for my job, and I like to keep the music changing and unpredictable. The ability to shuffle 4GB of songs is the main reason that I bought a dedicated MP3 player in the first place. Can anyone offer some suggestions as to why Shuffle doesn’t work?
