GoldenHour I'm on a road trip now and I have concluded that the master reset I did recently has corrected the skipping problem. We'll...almost.

Like someone else mentioned earlier I get one skip a couple of minutes after starting my focus and that's it. I thought the master reset did not work because I heard the initial skip. I was starting to think that I didn't hear the follow-up skips and today I am sure after driving more than six hours.

Just to clarify I get skipping from both USBs and SD slot. Thumb drives, iPod, SD card ... They all skip. But now I only get the initial skip and I am cool with that. Hope it stays that way!

raptor1956 I don't use an iPod but have a 32GB thumb-drive instead. I have noticed that I get an occasional skip or pause while playing music via the USB thumb-drive. I'm not talking the pause between tracks but in the middle of the track.

I'm guessing that the uP is busy doing something else and resumes playing when complete with whatever it was doing. If so, that would suggest the uP is pretty lame power/speed wise...

pablo94sc My iPod started skipping after I plugged my friends phone into the USB port for charging. I wonder if that's coincidence or the cause. When it does skip, it skips on every track. The fix I found is to rewind the song to before the skip and let it play. That seemed to stop it from happening again.

GoldenHour i tried a master reset today but the skipping persists. my focus is one of the late builds and i think sync has the latest updates.

i guess i'll go to the dealership to see if anything can be done. maybe i can get someone to ride around with me for 20-30 minutes to actually hear the skipping because there's no way i'm leaving my car there 2-3 days while they dick around with it.

in the end i'll bet i'll just have to live with it skipping.

TiPilot Mine (1st-Gen iPod Touch) always does this. I've had no issues with the cable on any other device so I don't think it's an iPod hardware problem.

There's also a strange interaction that nobody at Ford can figure out (tho it's resulted in one new APIM to date...) which is that listening to my iPod causes random SD Card Faults, which kills my Nav as well as USB audio. I can't usually get the USB audio back until a complete MFT (performing maintenance screen) reboot but the Nav returns in about 15 seconds. This has occurred under v2.11, v3.0.2, and now under v3.2.2 of MFT.

I still wonder if there's a hardware problem with the "media center" in my center console...

GoldenHour so far i've tested both USB ports and the SD card and they all skip. the radio does not skip. the next thing to try is a master reboot.

ADDED: ipod, thumbdrive and SD card all skip.

PBF199 I am still on the free satellite radio trial and that skips when it first starts. It doesn't matter if you switch from a different mode or when turning the car on. After about 5-10 seconds, it repeats the first 5-10 seconds and then acts normally.
BTW, for the nay sayers who think i didn't notice if I was under a bridge or hidden from satellites by buildings or weather conditions: I've tested this in the very open parking lot at Walt Disney World's Ticket and Transportation Center (Specifically, Zurg's lot in the villain's section, a.k.a Magic Kingdom's parking lot)
