Default Most synced songs aren't playing. Don't understand why.

My Fuze arrived last night. I upgraded the firmaware (I have version 1.XX).

I synced a bunch of songs via media monkey, and then tried to play. The only ones that worked were ones that I had ripped and converted a couple of years ago. The ones I ripped and converted recently (to MP3) using Songbird (via Lame), and the ones I purchased from Amazon didn't play.* All of the files are MP3 or WMA. (The WMA ones work)

* Theses songs either "play" without any sound, or the Fuze just skipps over them.

All of these songs play normally on my old sansa M230...

Does anyone have any ideas?

Some thoughts on potential issues
-I did have trouble syncing at first. I tried drag and drop which didn't work, so I did the media monkey sync. (which took a couple of tries - A combination of Mediamonkey sync settings, and my own ignorance)

-I've noticed that some of the songs that don't play have a negative track length time (e.g. -5.43)??

I thought it might be good to start from scratch. I saw a "format" option in settings. Will that action wipe away the firmware? (in additon to the music files)

Any ideas/help is much appreciated!
