Just recently, when playing my MP3s on my computer they are beginning to skip...a lot. And it's annoying. It happens when I use them on Windows Media Player and iTunes leading me to believe that it is not related to the player.
Also, these are the same MP3s thay I have been enjoying for the past few years, so it's not like I downloaded corrupt files.
I recently moved and cleaned out the internals with pressurized air. Is it possible that there is dust somewhere that it shouldn't be?
On a sidenote, I burned a CD with MP3s that were skipping and it came out fine.
