    When I sync my iPhone 4 (with OS 5) with iTunes (10.5.1, the latest for Mac), some MP3s don't sync to the iPhone, and I get a message saying that some tracks are the wrong format, which is not true since the MP3s are from the same source with the same settings.

    Thanks a lot.

    Most are 128,000 kbs and either 48,000 HZ or 44,100 HZ. I'm sure it's not a write-protection problem. Some are audio files I made myself with my voice, which all have the same settings (128 kbs, 44,100HZ), and some are from textbook audio cds, which are not write protected. It seems random which tracks are rejected. Could it be related to OS 5? It seems many people have been having audio problems after upgrading.

    I advice to drag and drop to itunes music library then sync it with iphone this would help you.
    Or try to sync music to your iPhone without iTunes.
    And i share you a column about iPhone Transfer Backup Reviews. This has worked perfectly for me everytime I've tried it.
    Hope it can do you a favor.

    Hello xplod566, I changed the settings as you recommended to 256 bit and 48,000 hz (I know you recommended 44,100, but I wasn't sure how to change to 44.100 in iTunes). Anyway, it worked, and I was able to get a whole list of mp3s transferred. Thank you very very much for your help.
