View Full Version : iTunes plays/stops randomly

Since new version of iTunes I am having an issue with iTunes as they stops/restarts the playback randomly. It is really annoying. Don't know what I could do with that...

By any chance, is your music on an external drive, or being accessed over a network? If the music files can't be read by iTunes fast enough, then you may get what amounts to "buffering".

Other potential culprits may be plugins/input managers/etc that modify or augment iTunes' behaviour. Do you have anything like that?

Lastly, does the same problem occur in a new user account?

obviously it is something to do with the play/pause button as in iphoto the slideshow starts/stops randomly as well...

the weird thing is -- my right key just stopped working as well. it is just software thing as combinations like CMD-right work well.

never had problems with mac and now... :/

I think you have a stuck key, or a weak space bar on your keyboard. Which Mac do you have?
If an iMac, you could try a different keyboard. It's not so simple with a MacBook
