Solution: Zen Stone Skipping

Problem: I was just loading up a new Zen Stone and when done went to check that it worked... Didn't have the headphones nearby, so I plugged in my big old home stereo set. Played the first song for about 3 seconds and then started to skip. First I played the songs right off the Stone in Winamp to rule out bad files - the files were all good. I kept playing, and noticed that it wouldn't skip at lower volumes - like song intros. So I turn the volume way down and it plays normal. Fortunately I happen to have a headphone amplifier laying around, plugged it in, and now the Stone will play as loud as I want without a skip.

Solution:The tiny battery and amp on the Stone can't drive big headphones. Voltage to the player drops as music gets loud, resulting in a skip.
Use earphones and make sure there are enough power/charge in the battery else the skipping will surface.
