    Check the extensions. My suspicion is that they are .wma (Windows Media) files. These files (obviously) only work with Windows Media Player, and you'll need to convert them to work with iTunes. There are a couple of different ways to do this, my favorite is Hyperion:

    Also, Windows Media Player for Mac will convert WMA to WAV from the terminal.

    OTOH, if they are regular MP3 Files, I don't know what the problem is.
