Missing songs on iPhone 4S

by nij77 / October 20, 2011 12:53 AM PDT

<span id="INSERTION_MARKER">I have several playlists of 100 songs which I sync to my iPhone, but without doing anything over the last few days they are going missing and there are only 99 or 98 songs in these playlists. However, when I plug the phone back into iTunes they are all there. Re-syncing doesn't help either. <span>

<span>Any ideas or tips? Or has anyone noticed the same thing?

Thanks a lot for pointing me to that. I will take a look through the similar posts and see if there is any development on the issue. I think mine is slightly different because some of the missing songs in question actually appear in other play lists. When I try to add it back in the list manually on the phone it still doesn't work. Very strange.

Look for other issues.

Such as the title "WHAM" but from two albums. I wonder how they handle name conflicts of either filename, song title, etc.
