Questions re flash drive and volume leveling

We have acquired a quality receiver and speakers (Yamaha RXV3800 and DefTech speakers). My Yamaha is capable of playing MP3s from a flash drive (really cool not to have to burn!),however the ends of songs are sometimes cut off, and the shuffling is sometimes erratic. I would love to have more control over the playlist.
1. Would an IPOD type device attached to my receiver (it can do that) utilize the full capabilities of my receiver and speakers, or the IPOD's lesser quality?
2.The receiver cannot read MP3Gain's ID3 tags in the songs. Is there a way of permanently leveling the volume of MP3s for level playback?
Thanks so much.
