    I have a few mp3 files that are not playing anymore with iTunes and they play normally with windows media player.
    I have iTunes 9. I tried converting them to AAC and get a (-50) error.
    The last time I listened to them was 9/9 after I installed iTunes 9 so I have no idea what happened to them.
    When I checked their infor, I noticed that the album cover had also disappeared.
    Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

    U probably have to convert the audio file again and readd it to itunes. I recommend using

    The problem is iTunes sometimes adds gapless info to added itunes songs which can mess it up sometimes. Its a stupid problem when u add mp3s to itunes but its an easy fix but not pleasant.

    A weird glitch. I would recommend opening up itunes and go to Edit > Preferences > Advanced > Now uncheck the box that says "Keep itunes music" folder organized. For some reason for me it messed up some of my songs so its better to keep ur music where u want to put it. Bcus if u change an information, itunes will associate its stupid "gapless" thing and then the ID3 tags can sometimes mess up the song file.

    For the artwork, yea it happened to me 2, just delete it afterwards or get a fresh one from google images.
