Is it an automatic or manual gearbox? Manual ones have an issue with a bolt coming loose on the selector sometimes which can drop inside the box, worth having a look at the selector mechanism on top of the box. Autos can have issues with fluid (poor condition or not enough of it in the box) or solenoid issues, but the later should show up on a scan with VCDS and the former more likely when the box is cold.

Need more info to tell you any more than that really - what type of gearbox, when does it do it?

You need a shim in the end float on the gearbox.
Itís a cheap fix.
Chances are you could also get stuck in reverse or second, also.
