Random sound snippets appear in the middle of MP3s when copying to Ipod via USB?


I am using my Ipod as a external drive for MP3. When copy mp3s to my ipod with ubuntu I get random little snippets of other song playing in the middle of MP3s.

My Ipod is a 4th generation gray 20Gb Windows formated Ipod.
The MP3 I wish to copy are in stereo 192 kbps format.

This is exactly what I am doing:
1) rip the mp3 to my home directory
2) view the mp3 with Audacity, the song looks and sound fine.
3) copy the mp3 to my Ipod via USB cable.
4) view the mp3 on Ipod with with Audacity, the song now has a 5 second podcast snippet in the middle.

Other forums have as called these weird snippets "sync errors":

Where should I look or what should I do to prevent this problem?

Hang on...
I thought you couldn't play a song on an iPod just by copying it to the disc. You need to write to the iTunesdb, and to do that you need to copy it to the iPod with iTunes or similar (I use a tool called GTKpod to copy music to my iPod in linux).
Having said that, i really dont see how having a bad iTunesdb will stuff the song up...

EDIT: Whoops, you're not even trying to play it on the iPod. My bad, it's stuffing up when you play it while connected to your computer. There should really be a "delete" option on these forums...

Indeed

Have any one had this issue with a ipod or external drive?

Is this a "sync error"?
