Windows Media Player may have converted the songs to .wma files. Since Apple and Microsoft hate each other, iTunes doesn’t play .wma (and Windows Media Player doesn’t play iTunes files, m4a or m4p, but that’s not relevant here). To check, go into My Computer/Tools/Folder Options/View and un-check “Hide extensions for known file types” so you can see what extension they are.
WMP and iTunes both play mp3, and so does the Fuze, so make WMP play nice.
You need to go into Windows Media Player and tell it to make mp3 files, not .wma. Look for a Tools tab. If you don’t see it, right-click on the very top line of WMP, where it says Windows Media Player on the left, and a menu including Tools should appear.
Then under Tools/Options/Rip Music change the format from .wma to .mp3, and raise the quality level while you’re at it, to at least 192 kbps.
If WMP has converted them to .wma, and you don’t have the original files any more, you’re either going to have to download them again or convert the .wma files to mp3. Unfortunately, that will lose some sound quality. Media Coder will do it for free.
