Hi All,

So I have this album of songs which work when I play them through Winamp, iTunes, and Windows Media Player.

However, once I sync the songs to my iPod Touch they become unplayable. They still play in iTunes, but nothing happens on the iPod. When I look at the progress bar of the song, it shows the proper length of the song, but it doesn't play. Anyone have this happen before?

The song is just a standard 128kbps song, nothing special to it.

    Try reseting the iPod by Pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears. It worked on my dad's 5g 30gb video iPod.

    Good advice... I've noticed that with some of my MP3s they won't play at all on the touch. It's probably due to how or with what they were encoded with. Will try to use iTunes and see if it solves the issue.

    It can also simply be a bad ID3 tag, which can be fixed in the Advanced menu in iTunes.
