    Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Certian songs and even albums will not play on my iphone. When I try to play them the song time sits at zero. They play perfectly fine in iTunes.

    I have heard of this problem before.. See the iphone is such a smart device.. If the iphone hates a certain song it will not play it.. Its the iphones way of saying your choice of music sucks and I will not stand to play it....:)

    try coverting them to aac in iTunes. My guess is the songs that will not play were either encoded with a program other than iTunes, or with a really old version of iTunes. It would probably also work to just "convert selection to mp3" in iTunes even if it is already an mp3.
