i found that they are all over the map. some are v1.0, some are v2.2, v2.3, some do nothave an id3 tag but say they are encoded by iTunes v188.8.131.52, quick time 6.5.2 among others...please keep in mind that i have used iTunes and iPods since late 2003 so lots of my music is first copied (burned) to my computer from back then and i have gone trough 3-4 from then and copied from one to onother. but i must say that until now, with this new Vaio S series i have been able to listen to my music without much trouble. now is rediculous. does it have to do with Vaio??? Please help if you can...Thanks

No, its is not Vaio, but the music format, as I mentioned earlier, it worked only with these 4 music format types, so you have to convert them to these types, for soundcheck to work.
The easiest way, is to group your music into playlist, then select all the song in playlist, then create MP3 version.
Refer to this Apple support Article on song format.
Have a nice day!

not to sound ungrateful, and i really appreciate you help but this article and the contents will not work for me or whoever wrote it missed a step. what happens, it creates another file of the song and has it next to it!!! so, that means that i will have 14000 songs instead of 7000...and how is one to listen to music after that? every song twice? this article, or Apple, does not tell you how to turn of or to delete one of the files. and if you go and delete duplicates then you delete some songs that you have from an artist in album version and in concert version and i have lots of those. so the only way is to go song by song and delete all unwanted duplicates. right? or there is another way? it must be since i doubt that Apple will not cover this. they are not that dumb. or rude. if i can find few flows with this system then you can imagine what someone who is smarter then me can do...anyway, with all this being said it may be time to transit to another player and get android and forget about Apple. very disappointing and i remind you that i have had an IPod when they were still had a hard disc and only 30min skip protection...sad...

Yes, it is hard to get user friendly and intellignet flow process, be Apple Help line or documents. If you hires thousands of engineers from all over the world, and tell them to produce good documentations for their flow process that would be friendly to lay end users, I think you may get a 10% chance if success.
A typical example is the minimum volume article, where users complaining that the volume is still too loud at 0%
My Apology, if I can't help you, with whatever experience I have, as I'm just an end user like you, trying to help others end-users, who comes to this sites, trying to find the magic one touch solution to their problems.
Anyway good luck with your transition to other media player.
