Have you tried playing the songs through WMP or Winamp? How about on a different computer?

I'm not running anything else with iTunes, and i tried Winamp and it does the same thing. it seems like iTunes messed up when it imported the songs. i'm thinking about just reinstalling iTunes and see what it does. i can't find anything about the error code at all, apple has nothing on error codes on thier site or in a help file....

I've had a problem somewhat like this when importing music from CD's, and when burning music to CD's. I think it is, like C38368 said, related to needed CPU time being allocated to other programs while iTunes is converting/burning the music files. Next time you try converting the music, Ctrl+Alt+Del and go to the processes tab. Find the itunes.exe process and bump up the priority to high... I would stay away from realtime though... that can cause system instability.

I think i got it working again, all i did was turn Hyper Threading back on and its worked fine so far? i don't see what Hyper Threading would affect with iTunes though....

... Decoding audio files is a low-priority task. Translation: other processes get first pick of CPU time.

I'm not sure if thats directed at me about the changing priortiy comment, or at Beef for the hyper threading comment... but if its directed at me, thats why I suggested that he set change the priority of itunes.exe to high, to give it some more CPU time.

It was in regard to why turning HT on seems to fix it.
