I bought my iPod in October. I have downloaded purchased music onto it as well as some music that I already own. The player has been working just fine until recently. I noticed that a few of my listed songs on my iPod had a symbol in front of them - - - a red circle with an exclamation point inside of it. I can no longer play the songs that have that icon in front of it (it is not the symbol with the folder and the exclamation mark). The songs are a combination of my own CD music and music I have downloaded from iTunes. Any suggestions? ideas? answers?

    It would appear that those songs have become corrupt and unreadable. This doesn't mean that the songs are not on your iPod, hence the fact that the iPod reports used space (and the ! next to them), and iTunes may show them.

    You should restore the iPod and then reload the songs from iTunes.

    Of you could just delete the corrupt songs, assuming they play correctly in iTunes, and reload those.
