Hello All,

I burn my CDs in mp3 format and save them on my CPU. I then transfer them to various mp3 players, such as my Zune and my iPhone. For some reason, many songs will not show up on my iphone- but they will on other devices. For example, I cannot understand why only one or two of the greatest hits from one CD will show up on my iPhone (even though the entire CD is visible in my iTunes catalog), while the whole 12 songs will be on my Zune and on my CPU. Any thoughts?

Update... I found out that some of the mp3s on iTunes had a "!" next to them- denoting that iTunes wasn't able to "find" them. So now I am removing the "!" symbols by manually finding each album. We will see if that fixes the situation.

Good deal. I think that will solve your issues.

Now I am finding out that some of the CDs are not showing up on iTunes.... for example I may have 5 albums by The Beatles, but only two are showing up on iTunes. Not sure why?
