    Default Why some music wont transfer to Iphone??

    I've got a 3G and i have iTunes set up so that i manually manage music and videos.
    Yesterday i was adding music just by dragging and dropping from a windows folder into iTunes.
    For the most part it worked but there are some that I just cant get on.
    I drag them from the folder,my iphone appears-"Sync in Progress" but still nothing.
    I even added the music into the iTunes library but it still wouldnt add from there wheen i try to drag it from the music part of iTunes to the iPhone part.

    This is really wrecking my head.

    Anyone have any suggestions?
    Thanks

    maybe they are in *.wma, you can easily convert them with a third party audio converter.

    Don't .wma convert to m4a upon them being added to iTunes? I haven't had a .wma file in like 4 years, so I don't fully recall, but I'm fairly sure.

    +1 to "What format are they?"

    If they are .wma then select each and choose "convert to mp3". I believe that should solve your issue if this is the case.

    This may sound wierd.., but I had some songs sync into my 3gs as ringtones. Though they were not ringtones.

    Have you checked to see that the files were, indeed, converted and now in iTunes?
