Had a bunch of artists and tracks saved and working ok on phone, but now none are shown except in the one playlist I have created but the phone won't play any from this list.When I try it says 'playback failed'
It will play any of the default sony tracks that came already on the phone when I bought it but all the others I've put in except that list have now suddenly disappeared.
Anyone know why that might be, is there a solution to be found in any way except re-loading all of the CDs etc ?
Any thoughts gratefully received

Learn to adjust the playback and sound settings for
your music player.
1. In Menu mode, select Music player.
2. Press ? Player settings.
3. Adjust the settings to customise your music
4. Press .
I can think of a kind of workaround: put the stock music player to select the track you want to have repeated all the time. Firstly, tap 'Menu > More > Settings', and make sure the 'Auto repeat' checkbox is ticked. Then, press the back button, and, then, 'Menu > More > Add to playlist > New playlist'. You'll be offered the name 'Playlist 1'. Change it to e.g. the track title, if you really want (or leave it as is). Tap 'OK' to save the track to the playlist. Then, tap 'Menu > Music Home > My music > Playlists', and select the playlist you have just created (with the track you want to hear over and over).
Hope it works for you.
Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you any further.
hope this helps please remember to take the time and give me a good rating if you appreciated my help.

If you want to delete music from iPhone, you can take fully advantage of iTunes. After you purchased songs in iTunes Store on iPhone, your iTunes will also save the purchase history, so you don't have to worry about losing the purchased music files. When you connect iPhone to computer with USB cable, iTunes will launch automatically and recognize your iPhone. You can create a new playlist which contains only the music you need, and then sync it to your iPhone. By doing this, you can remove the unwanted music from iPhone.
Click the iPhone icon at the upper left corner.
Choose Music in the left sidebar.
Check Sync Music choose Selected playlists, artists, albums and genres.
Select the playlist which only contains the songs you need. Then click Sync.
Well, to change the song you must hold in the "walkman" symbol key and then shake. IMHO, I would say that pressing the "next" button is much easier! I think you have to hold the walkman button in is so that if you are running/jogging/jumping about, you wouldn't be listening to all sorts of songs!
I have a feeling the phone won't recognise M4a format, if it does though, you'll probably have to create a playlist and arrange the play order in iTunes. WMP info is recognised by most MP3 devices - it is a small file containing the details of the tracks' play order and such.
