Question Ipod 'slows down' with certain files

Apologies for the title, I couldn't fit what I wanted to describe in there.

I have a 160GB Ipod that works wonderfully in my car via USB. According to what I've read, an Ipod of that nature should be able to play 24bit/48Khz files, as long as they are in ALAC format.

Which they are. It does play these without a problem. I have quite a lot of tracks in this format.

Unless of course, I switch the engine off and restart and I choose another track (24/48Khz) and it will play it at half speed. It will do this until I play a 'normal' 16/44.1 track for example, then it will play fine until once again, playback is stopped for whatever reason.

Can't figure it out. I guess I could resample everything to 16/44.1, but the specs (and experience) says it can play them, so why is it doing this?

Just wading through the plethora of advice....

Tested now and it only does it when it's connected to the car audio. Car is a 17 Golf, but I guess I'll just resample everything.
