IF this isn't the issue:

Perhaps the files are corrupt?
-Have you played back each track to ensure they do play?


Otherwise, if these are genuinely your tunes (and you stated these are) then you may need to retag them through an app similar to this http://www.mp3tag.de/

try a new media player. media jukebox plays more media then itunes and is free and comes with many extras that itunes doesnt have. it even can play files over networks without permission errors. itunes is picky about folders becuase they only want you to play approved format files and nothing more.

if they are the older protected m4a's then you have to login to itunes store and authorize the computer
