Some songs wont play on Tiger OS. They work just fine on any older Mac OS I tried, they work on WinXP & WinXP 64. They work on iPod Video & Shuffle, but not when uploaded by a Tiger OS machine.

I did notice that when viewing song info in iTunes that there is a visible difference in songs that play and songs that dont.

Under Summary tab, middle section: Songs that play will list in right hand column stuff like: Profile, Channels, Purchased by, etc.. Song that dont play have no info in the right hand column. Both have info in left hand column.

I have tried coping files using several methods, none work. I have tried on several G5's, Mac Mini's.
