Does Your Ipod.....

Seem to "prefer" certain albums? Artist? etc...

It just seems like when I put mine on shuffle - it goes back and forth between like five albums/artists, and ignores the other 500 on there. Drives me crazy!!!

I know exactly what your talking about

Shuffle seems to cycle through the same songs over and over again

Yes!

Mine goes through "moods," too...its most frequent moods are U2 and REM, which I don't really mind, but it ignores some of the other artists I have on there whose songs I'm not as familiar with.

in itunes there's a setting: "Smart Shuffle" that lets you pick how likely you are to hear consecutive songs by the same artist

dunno how it works, i don't use shuffle much

Smart shuffling
Whether you're in need of a steady flow of music for a party or you just want to hear random songs from your library, the obvious solution is to set iTunes to shuffle. Smart Shuffle, added to iTunes in a recent version, adds some control to this feature by allowing you to designate how likely you are to hear multiple songs in a row by the same artist or from the same album. To set up Smart Shuffle, simply go to iTunes > Preferences, then hit the Playback tab. Below the cross-fade controls, you'll find a Smart Shuffle slider that lets you adjust this feature's settings. You can further control this feature by setting it to randomize songs, albums, or groupings by clicking the appropriate radio button.

I haven't noticed this while using the Shuffle option on my iPod but I am going to keep an open ear just in case.
