Yeah I just discovered this on my 3GS as well. Same exact thing, songs are installed/loaded but they will not play. Also, I'm missing a lot of my album art. I have't seen any fixes yet or others with this same issue. Have you tried re-syncing? I'm going to tonight.

I would look at those particular tracks then, see if an error message comes up, or that maybe the meta-data is messed up. Only other thing I can think of is to make sure that those songs are actually in your iTunes folder. If iTunes isn't set to automatically add tracks to library and you move them, they could be unable to sync.

Right-click and get Info. It could be something in the description field that is making your phone grumpy.
Aside from that, I have no idea.Is the blue box next to the songs checked? Did you tell your phone to only sync checked songs and videos?

It comes up as Protected AAC audio file versus some that say Purchased AAC Audio file. But some protected ones have also synced.
Comparing two songs by the same artist, they have identical info. (Except for purchase date and size and stuff like that.)
So I don't know what to do.

So, just to make sure I understand, are these two versions of the same song, or two different songs by the same artist?
Because if it's the former, try syncing the Purchased version instead, since it doesn't have DRM. If it's the later, it still may be an issue with the DRM that comes built into Protected MP3s.
