When using an iPod or iPhone, you may have such a trouble: the music you purchased from the iTunes Store won't play on iPod. They play correctly in iTunes, and all non-purchased songs (such as the song imported from CDs ) plays normally on the iPod.

The purchased songs' titles are visible on the iPod but appear to be skipped over without being played. To solve this issue, you may find one of below solutions may help you out.

How to make Music Playable again:

1. Make sure that you have the latest version of iTunes installed on your computer.

2. In some cases iTunes may "forget" that your music is authorized. You can refresh the authorization by deauthorizing and then reauthorizing your computer.

3. If you have a backup, then restoring device to factory settings will solve most of problems.
