    I’ve had similar surprises from my (3G) iPod as well.

    It seems that in certain circumstances, the iPod loses playcounts/last played timstamps when it runs out of battery juice. It doesn’t lose it every time the power runs out, tho…seems to depend on what else it is doing, if the iTrip is plugged in and draining power at the same time, etc. My guess is, that if power is lost in the middle of writing out the playcount information the database may become corrupt or something.

    Keeping things charged up and syncing often reduces the chance you’ll lose the playcount and last played times.
