I have tried to deauth and reauth my main computer (the one where the songs were purchased) but they will not sync to my iPhone. The play perfectly fine in iTunes but when added to my playlist for the iphone they don't sync. When I try to "re-add" them to the playlist iTunes identifies that there are duplicates and asks if I wont to skip or add them. Either way, they don't sync to the phone.

Any ideas? Not all the purchases I have are doing this, just some.

iPhone 3GS, iOS 4

    Try deselecting Sync Music under the Music tab for your iPhone sync preferences with iTunes followed by selecting Apply and a Sync. This should remove all music on your iPhone.

    Follow this be reselecting Sync Music and make or check your selections below followed by a sync to re-transfer your selected playlists back to your iPhone to see if this resolves it.

    I am having the same issue with an audiobook i just downloaded from ITunes. I have checked all relevant tabs in ITunes, and it just won't show up. I've deselected everything from the ITunes menu, synced, and then reselected them and it did no good? any other suggestions?

    I had the same problem. I tried rebuilding the playlists, removing all media and putting it back on, zilch. I finally got it to work, but I am not sure why.
    This is what I did, I reinstalled Itunes (I was desperate). Then I when I tried to play an audiobook, it asked me to verify my computer with audible I had done this before but it did not work, this time however, I was able to import all my audiobooks onto my iphone as I normally do.
    Also, during my messing around I recieved an error that my bonjour app was turned off. That is when I said to **** with messing with the settings and reinstalled Itunes entirely. Like I said, I have no idea if any of that was the root of the problem, or if it all was. I know I didn't unauth my audible or my itunes or do any behavior recently that would have caused this (to my knowledge).
    If this doesn't work, then post that I was way off base . Good luck!
