itunes will not play random songs ripped from CD's

noticed that my itunes and pod will skip songs randomly that i imported from Cd's I had already purchased. the song info will pop up momentarily, then the next song will begin playing. Seems to only happen to one song on an album, though, and completely without pattern. any thoughts? thanks.

Is there an exclaimation point next to the song in iTunes?

In reply to: itunes will not play random songs ripped from CD's

If there is, it means that iTunes can't find the song. You can try finding the song via windows explorer and dragging the song into iTunes. Or you could delete the albums affected from both iTunes library and your hard drive and re-rip them from the original cds.

I have no good explanation as to why this happens. It happened to me once and I just did the delete/re-rip method. Easier than driving myself crazy.

no, slightly different issue

the files are there-- i can find them in windows, but they have been some how corrupted, other software won't play them anymore either... when I try to have itunes convert to mp3 (i rip to aac), there is an unknown error...?

Just sharing.

Another member had corruption and even files go missing like that. In the end we discovered they were a P2P user and the usual pests were found.
