    A different track would play on my iPad 3 instead of the one I selected. I tried various fixes but the solution which worked for me was to quit iTunes on my computer OSX 10.8.2 and then turn off the iPad and back on again, after which they have synced correctly.

    I had this problem today. Everything syncing except my "The Blue Nile" collection, which just seemed too weird.


    I tried a few of the steps to no avail, but as I then went to re-import the tracks, I right-clicked on one of the Blue Nile tracks and selected "Reveal in Finder" - the track was an m4p - a protected m4a from the old days of iTunes.


    I had bought these tracks and previously authorised my computer, but after a recent repair at the Apple Store, the logic board was replaced and quite a few authorisations have gone wrong - including all protected m4a files I had previously authorised.


    When I double-clicked the m4p file, the authorisation dialogue came up, but it said I had authorised 5 out of 5 computers on that old account.


    I logged into iTunes using the account the songs were bought with, then chose "Deauthorize all". Went back, double clicked the m4p that had previously brought up the auth dialogue box, then authorised this machine.


    Then everything synced fine.


    So basically, if you're having an issue with protected files, or have recently had a repair on your computer, that could be the cause. Kind of annoying that it fails silently.

    This worked for me. Thank you very much.

    The tracks that were not syncing for me were long (usually more than 1 hour) mixes. After trying just about everything in this forum with no luck, I was finally able to get my missing songs added by doing the following...


    1.) Right click on the song that was not syncing and select "Create AAC Version"


    Once you do that you will see that the song is converting in the left sidebar. Let the song complete the conversion.


    2.) Once the song has completed the conversion I would delete the song that would not sync to avoid duplicates.


    3.) Click on "Recently Added" in the left sidebar and find the converted song


    4.) Move that song from "Recently Added" to the playlist you want it in.


    5.) Sync


    That finally did it for me. Hope that helped someone

    I experienced the same problem when trying to sync my wife's new iPod Touch with her Music Library. Even though "Sync Entire Music Library" was checked in the Music tab, only 129 songs out of 1143 were being synced.


    I solved the problem by going to the device's Summary tab, scrolling down to Options, UNCHECKING "Sync only checked songs and videos", and checking "Convert higher bit rate songs to 128 kbps". I'm not sure if the bit rate needs to be converted, but I checked it anyway because it worked for an previous poster.


    That worked for me.

    My problem was similar to everyone else in that all the songs that I wanted to sync to my 4th gen iPod shuffle copied over OK, but had lost the connection to the playlists I had set up. Most playlists had only one or two songs in them. The solution (simpler than most above) was to check the 'Sync only checked songs' on the Summary page (it had been unchecked before). When I then clicked on Apply, it worked away for a while, and when it said the sync was complete all the playlists were correctly set up.


    So thanks everyone for posting what worked, I'm a happy camper today!

  • anttman Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    All just a quick question, I have tried all the above and still the same problems. 


    Can I just ask do the songs that dont sync have a red box with Explicit next to them?  it seems that for me its these songs not syncing onto my iPhone 4!!! 


    Still looking for a solution......

  • Sherpapsy Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Oh, I shold say I am on a Mac Book Pro, but what difference does that make for basic funcionality!


    My issue is similar but a litle different. I have an Ipad on which I create and edit playlists during my weekly three hour commute to work each week, then expect thos playlists to go up to itunes and then I can create them in Traktor Pro which I DJ with. Suddenly these play lists are not synching, in fact if I create a new one on the Ipad it simply never appears in itunes, I've tried reseting warning's etc but to no avail.


    This is terribly frustrating especialy give the 1000's of pounds I have given to apple for all this hardware/software which is supposed to just work, replication is a basic functionality!!!

    My issue started when I had no choice but to download the latest version of itunes. I have an ipod nano,

    but only 47 of 89 songs are being synced to the device. I downloaded 3 new songs the other day and only

    one is showing in my library and not on the device. The songs not syncing are grayed out and have the cloud

    next to them. I have done a factory reset and checked and unchecked various boxes to no avail.

  • Shootka Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    Mike if you have all of your tunes in iTunes then delete all of your music from the nano while it is not connected to iTunes and then sync from iTunes. It's worth a try.

  • acire75 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Grrrr. I'm having this issue. I've gone thru all 6 pages of this thread and tried all suggestions and nothing is working. I bought an iPod Classic on Sunday and was trying to set it up so that the Classic would have all of my music, and I'd have selected music on my iPhone 5.  I  updated my iTunes to the latest version The iPhone 5  has synced with no issues, but now  is suddenly missing a lot of songs.  According to iTunes, my entire library has 2058 songs.  When I sync the iPhone, the bar initially shows 2054 songs, but then shrinks down after synching completes and I currently have 1400 songs. On the Summary page I have the Sync only checked songs and videos (and everything is checked) and I've also done the Convert higher bit rate songs to - and I have that at 256 kbps because it showed me the most songs when I did that.  Under the Summary - Music tab in iTunes I have it set to Sync Music, Entire Music Library.  I've also tried to go into Preferences - Advanced - Reset Warnings and Reset Cache like someone else suggested.  Oh, on the page that says On This iPhone, it says I have 2056 songs....but when I look at the phone it is 1400.  Everything is checkmarked, and I don't have any exclamation points.  I really can't figure this out....and it shouldn't be so hard, right? Help!!

    Oh, and a p.s. I was comparing my phone list to my itunes list, and I'm not only missing songs, but entire artists. I have 7 Artists that start with the letter H, and only 2 of them show up in the Artists section of my phone!

  • acire75 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Sorry for the third post, but I ended up taking all of the music off and re-syncing it and now - all my music is there! Yay!

  • Shootka Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    You must have missed the post on page 5 and the one prior to your first post that told you to delete all music and resync ?  Apple please pay attention and fix the problem.
