Have you accidentally or otherwise moved or deleted some of your files? It may be many more than 100 tracks - iTunes just stops counting at that point. Try identifing one of the problem songs and then searching your computer for it. If you've deleted them or at any rate cannot locate them then syncing should have left any exisiting copies on the iPod which you might be able to recover using techniques in this post from Zevoneer:
Nope, all of the files are there. Here's my latest test: I took some of the files that were supposedly "not compatible", put them on my MacBook Pro, then restored my iPod to that machine. And voila, all of the files synced. So it must be my iTunes library. Now I've gotta figure out how to rebuild it without losing playlists.
This weekend I took the big leap and recreated my music library. Nice to know, it didn't delete any of the playlists, which was my worry, and now everything is syncing nicely.
The instructions to do it were here:
I did have to rebuild my Podcasts library afterward, too, following the instructions linked to at the bottom of that page.
Thanks for your suggestions, everyone!
