    Hi guys, I've searched I've found out that iTunes not playing some MP3s it's some king of ID3-TAG-or-sth-like-that issue, so I downloaded "MP3 Validator for Mac OS X" (, and it fixes some of my songs, but not all..

    It says "unknown format" for some MP3, and I don't know how to fix it...
    Can you tell me why, please?

    Thank you in advance, Paolo.

    Recreate them by converting the songs from mp3 to mp3 with Max or All2MP3 or Audacity (or many other apps). Then they will import just fine.

    Thank you guys, using Media Info it turn out that the problem was in the file itself, meaning Windows screwed up transferring it on my flash drive...

    Thank you again, Paolo.
