iTunes Sync Errors (New Problem!)

I'm using 7.3.2, though admittedly I hadn't been paying close enough attention prior to the latest update.

I've noticed what seems to be random errors or mistakes in the sync to my library. For instance, a particular artist just gets randomly left off, even though I double checked he was checked to be sync-ed. Other random things like album art not transferring over, even though it is clearly updated in iTunes.

Nothing serious, but definitely a bit strange. Anyone else see anything like this? I should also mention I'm on Windows Vista, which has been causing strange problems with iTunes anyway.

I can cope with the album art screwups. What bothers me is that it's not always syncing my smart playlists right. My list is supposed to be songs I haven't heard in 2 months, yet it continues to put songs I just heard last week on the phone.

New problem, even stranger.

I migrated my music library over to a Mac (from Vista), thinking it would get better and more consistent syncing with the iPhone. First few weeks were great.

Last night I did a sync, and a ton of my songs decided not to sync (or iTunes decided for me I should say). I checked and re-checked all my settings, but nothing had really changed. Except for a bunch of songs that should have been sunced getting wiped off. I typically don't sync my whole library, just checked items. I'm getting around 200 songs on the iPhone instead of (I think) about 500.

I did restore and install iFuntastic last night, but that was all AFTER the strange sync problem. After the restore, it re-sync-ed and did the exact same thing.

Any ideas?
