    issues with "random" on Pioneer 8400mp

    Has anyone had issues with the Pioneer 8400mp random not really working. I have several mp3 disks I have created with 100+ songs on them. I seem to be getting the same songs selected WAY more often than I should.

    It MAY be related to me overriding the song it selects. for example, say I have 100 songs on the disk, and it picks song 50. I may change folders/tracks to listen to a different song, but it will come back to song 50 within the next 3-4 songs or so. Almost like it has to play that song completely before it can re-randomize.

    maybe it picks one random song per folder, and wont pick a different one for that folder until it plays the song it picked!?!?! I have no idea and I am disappointed.

    anyone else have this problem?

    I have one....I don't use folders unless I'm making a CD of albums....but I haven't had any problems with the random feature, although I don't use it that much.

    Try it and find out....

    yea, I've tried my best to determine specifically what causes the probelm, but I cant figure out a sure-fire situation when it ALWAYS happens. I just know that I am hearing the same songs WAY more often than I should be. ARRRRGH!
