    Default [1.1.4](Problem) Songs not showing up

    Hi everyone. I bought a laptop running vista some days ago. Since then I have downloaded 3 mp3s (not illegal) and when I try to sync them to my iphone, the following thing happens:

    They don't show up in coverflow (neither the artwork or te default "note" artwork")
    They do show up in the song list, and if you start playing any of them and then tilt your phone, then they appear in the coverflow as well (until you exit ipod mode)

    So I tried creating a playlist containing only these files. What happens is that the songs do show up in the song list, but the phone doesn't go into coverflow mode, and in general the ipod is like frozen you can't go to videos or anything else. You can't even "click" on te files even thought they appear on the list. All other stuff on the phone work fine as soon as you exit ipod mode.

    Any suggestions? I believe it has something to do with vista, since this never happened with my xp pc.

    if you sync music from your XP PC can you play those?

    Have you try to copy those mp3's you downloaded to you XP pc and sync from there?

    Yes I can, but the thing is that I am going away to school on Monday, tat's why I got the laptop in the first place, so there isn't much sense in syncing with my old pc.

    right click a song and tell itunes to clear album artwork. The download the album cover, try amazon, they have nice sizes. Then right click one of the songs agan and click get info, choose the artwork tab abd browse for the cover you downloaded. Also changing the song names and then saving them will often help. Otherwise if that does not work google id3 tag cleaner, you should find something free that will sort out your problem.

    I dont think he would have gotten them on the phone in WMA format, it must be corrupt or missing id3 tags. Importing the original songs into something like mediamonkey and sorting out the tags should help.

    I erased all the tags and the artwork, but the problem remains...
