I'm thrilled with this purchase. A price worth it's contribution to making my life easier.
If you found this review helpful, please let me know!
1. Before recording, reset the iPod by sliding the hold switch on then off and then holding both the menu and center buttons till it resets. Logically, this seems like it would only have temporary benefits by completely clearing the RAM.
2. Completely restoring the iPod. If you've been using your iPod for a while, after many syncs, the hard drive will get heavily fragmented. Having to seek for a free block to continue the recording sounds like a plausible explanation for the skipping. Restoring your iPod and re-transferring all your files at once would leave larger free blocks requiring less seeking for the hard drive during recording.
Because the skipping problem is related to the fact that the iPods this device works with use HDDs with spinning platters. A truly permanent solution would be to replace the drive with a solid state version. I found this device (http://www.tarkan.info/store) that lets you connect your iPods hard drive connector to an internal MicroSD card for about $30 (you supply your own MicroSD up the the iTunes max of 128GB). I've opened my iPod 5G a couple times to replace the battery and a headphone jack. It's not too difficult if you're at all technically inclined. I would imagine that using solid state drive would also greatly increase the battery life and the speed of file transfers.
It would have been nice if Belkin had included any of this information in the manual since it seems a lot of people have complained about the skipping issue over the years.
