    I've the same problem with MacBook Pro (2009) and MacOS X Lion (up to date), iTunes (up to date) and iPhone 4S (up to date)... And I already try out all these tests (delete and re-create, etc, etc, etc).

    I would like to note that I have found another possible solution to this problem. My phone would skip over random songs in my library and not sync them. It was impossible to find out exactly which ones, but there was a difference of about 100 songs. I tried numerous things but here's what worked for me:

     

    Update iTunes

    Go into Preferences -> Advanced

    Reset All Warnings

    Reset iTunes Cache

    Sync iPhone

     

    It immediately put on the songs that were missing. No errors. No problems. Not sure why I needed to do that but it worked!!

  • sfermanis Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Ok Im having the same problem.  Most of the songs in my newly created playlists are not syncing over.  Weird, frustrated, finally found this forum.  Tried the check box for the 128 thing and BAM all the songs on my playlist are now in the correct area, BUT it recopied over 272 songs on my phone!!!  Now, now how do I get rid of all the duplicates?   They are not in my itunes music folder - it is showing the correct number, these are only on my phone.  Ill try to sync again w selected playlist songs etc and see if it will clean it up...... what exactly does the 128 thing mean anyway???   thanks

    I'm having the same issue, it's driving me crazy! I tried a full restore from factory settings, re-syncing, and songs are still missing. I have an album in iTunes that is missing about 5 songs when I sync. The weird thing is, sometimes the missing tracks will sync but then there will be other tracks from that album missing.

     

    If I click 'manually manage music' and drag the songs over, it works fine. As soon as I go back to syncing all checked songs, the songs disappear again. And they are ALL checked!!!

     

    I really hope to find a solution to this problem soon. I am looking at buying a new phone in the coming year when my contract expires but am starting to get frustrated with my iPhone 4 and looking at other options.... it seems there have been a ton of issues since iOs 5. Considering that playing music is a basic, fundamental function of the phone, this is pretty much unacceptable. I've freelanced tech support for years so if I can't figure this out I'd hate to imagine how much of a hassle this is for the average user.

    Hello again... I fixed this bug doing this steps:

     

    1 - Remove the musics with this problem (also remove from iTunes Match).

    2 - Update iTunes Match (if you use)

    3 - Sync the iPhone

    4 - Add the musics again from my backup (not the backup from iTunes Library, I've all my musics in other place)

    5 - Sync the iPhone

     

    It was easy for me... 'Cause it happens only with a few songs from Garth Brooks... And on my Country Music playlist.

     

     

  • sfermanis Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Well this is the weirdest thing ever.  I synced and synced. Checked the 128 box thing, unchecked it. Never got to the point where I had to recopy the file to another location and wiped everything out.  Checked sync to icloud, unchecked sync to icloud. clicked manual....

    Then, I just put it all back to what I had checked originally - sync over wifi, icloud, selected playlist etc.. About 4 times today it kept asking me for my icloud password. I entered it 4 times.  When I got home, I still had over 500 songs in my phone when I only have 382 in itunes. Hit the sync button without connecting it to the computer and DONE.  Its all there in the right places.... GO FIGURE!!!!

    :O)

    Well, things got weirder before they got better, but my playlists are back, and life seems good.

     

    One of the things I noticed was on my iPhone, if I looked at songs by artist, a number of the songs were duplicated, with only one containing the album art. The songs were not duplicated in iTunes. I decided to start the tedious process of deleting the songs with no album art. I did a quick sync, but the remaining dupes were still on my iPhone, and a couple of my playlists were either empty or incomplete.

     

    Just for grins, I cleared the checkbox for syncing those playlists on iTunes and synced. This removed the playlists from my iPhone. Then I reselected the playlists. They appeared in their entirely. Also? Like magic, the remaining duplicated songs no longer appeared on my iPhone. Hey...I said it was weird. <shrug> I have no idea how all that happened, but I'm not complaining.

  • KoalaMela Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    My problem seems to be that my computer says I have 1941 songs synced to my iPod, but I can only see/listen to 251 songs... pretty big gap. Of the few songs that I can access on my iPod, some are purchased from Store while most are recently added (but not the 3 most recent CDs I added). I just restored, and noticed some changed to my iPod, but no improvement on the music aspect. What gives and how do I fix?

  • unodonut Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I am copying this from another post but this also worked for me. My iphone would keep songs that i purchased through itunes on my iPhone and not sync them, then i followed these steps and all music was synced. And I also added a step.

    I was having this exact issue and I followed your steps and it worked.  My music is now syncing to my phone.  Thank you!

  • billfromnj Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    This seems to work for me thanks!!  Uncheck all the items in your playlists that aren't syncing... sync, then re-check them in iTunes, sync again, and they show up in the iPhone.

     

    I'm using the iPhone 4s with a MacBook Pro.  Thanks again!!!

  • billfromnj Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    This works!  Thanks waterzombie!!!

  • WarrenUA Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Weirdness!!!!!!

     

    I am having ALL the issues addressed above and no solutions so far.

     

    Oddly I just went to my iPhone via iTunes and unchecked "sync" music and synced. The bar indicating how much music is on my phone went from ~10g to 2.4.....2.4????? How can I have any left??!

     

    Just before I unchecked all my playlists and still had 2.4g...I then reselected one and it went to 2.3 g...How can adding files make it smaller? Clearing some weirdness.

     

    Oh yea I'm pretty current with iPhone 4s, brand new MacBook Pro and current software across the board including iTunes...

     

    What gives Apple!?

  • Goatchaps Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I had this problem as well and I solved it without restoring my iPhone 4s. First of all, let me fully explain the problem I had:

     

    I was trying to sync the phone with iTunes for the first time and I got an error that said that my phone had been disconnected and that the sync failed. It came up with this error before it copied any songs to the phone. I had the phone plugged into my usb 2.0 hub that is self-powered (meaning that it has its own power cable as opposed to obtaining power from the computer). I plugged the usb cable directly into my computer and the errors stopped and songs started synching with my iTunes.

     

    Here is where my problem is the same as the one mentioned here:

     

    1. My iTunes has 32 songs in it, but it only copied 26 songs to my iPhone 4s during the sync. I tried syncing it several times with both the usb cable and sync over wifi. Only 26 songs would show up on my phone.

     

    2. When I would look at the music that iTunes thought that it synced, it showed that it had transfered all 32 songs to my iPhone. To check this, expand your iPhone under "Devices" on the left hand side of iTunes by clicking the triangle that is located directly to the left of your iPhone's name, then click on "Music" from the options that appear below. At the bottom of the resulting page, it will say how many songs your iTunes thinks are synced to your iPhone.

     

    Obviously, this problem annoyed me for quite awhile as it probably has annoyed everyone reading this thread. So, enough with the problem, let's get to the solution (I found the solution on Apple's support site: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1503).

     

    1. Click on your iPhone's name to highlight it on the left hand side of iTunes. This will display the "Summary" page.

     

    2. Click on the "Music" tab that is located on the upper center of iTunes. This is a different "Music" button; it is NOT the one on the left that you clicked on earlier. This will bring you to a page that says "Sync Music."

     

    3. To the left of where it says "Sync Music," there is a check box that should be checked. Uncheck this box. A warning should appear to let you know that all of your music will be removed from your iPhone.

     

    4. Confirm that you want to remove all of your music from your iPhone.

     

    5. Wait until it says you have 0 songs on your iPhone and check the "Sync Music" box. Your songs should begin syncing. If not, click the "Sync" button in the bottom right corner of iTunes. I used the "Entire music library" option, but I would assume that selecting the songs or artists that you want synced would work just as well.

     

    Upon completion of the sync, all 32 songs were finally on my iPhone 4s. I hope this information helps at least some of you.

     

    Good luck!

    OMG! You Rock FireFighter! I have spent hours trying to figure this out and I have tried every single thing everyone has suggested short of resetting my iphone - because like others - why the heck should I? This isn't my issue, its some setting that has changed and I guess we weren't notified. I haven't even attempted to sync my ipad yet - just fixed my ipod touch and iphone 4 so I'm giving it a rest for awhile. This thread has saved me a couploe times and is the first place I go now - so thank you everyone for sharing - I am a much wiser apple user:)

     

    I even created a log in to thank you lol..its the little things that get us excited:)
