I keep getting this orange exclamation point when I try to sync a couple of songs in a new playlist. When I add other songs it syncs fine. It's just these couple of songs which are local tracks and are in the accepted format. This is very strange. The songs use to play fine but I had to re-sync becasue I had been offline for 30 days. Now these couple of songs just won't sync for offline playing.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I am having the same issue... my local songs will not snyc. I have a playlist of mostly just local songs as they are not avaliable in the spotify library and only a very few of them sync.

My English isn't the best but I think you will understand me anyway. However I also had this sync problem you guys have. But it was just a couple of tracks that wouldn't either sync or play in offline mode on my iPhone. The thing that made it just weird for me was that this tracks had been synced for months before they just stopped work and the error with the exclamation point came up. I don't really know what I did solving this. Of course I know what I did but it was various things so I can't tell exactly what helped or solved it. If I remember it right I did the following things...
I started by format both my iPhone and computer and of course I had to install everything all over. Then I started spotify and pointed out the map where I stored my musicfiles, that I also had cleaned up from duplicates and stuff like that. After this I just did a lot of small changes in general settings, settings for the files and I probably tried everything that I could try. For example one thing was that I unlinked (Right click on a local file in spotify and you'll see the option) these tracks who was a problem earlier. Then I restarted Spotify and linked them again and yeah.. like I said I looked for every little change I could do in settings. After a while I decided to start syncing my iPhone again and when it was done later these tracks who had been a problem before now was like they should be. Synced and playable in offline mode on my iPhone.
Once again I apology for my English but hope you'll understand anyway. If you don't just ask me :-)
I hope that both of you will find a solution and please let me know here if you may detect the exact problem for this error.

▶ OK, I've found a solution, at least it worked for me.
▶ Yesterday, after reading danieljansson0's post I thought of trying the easy part, so here's what I've done: uninstall the app form the iPhone, restart the device, download again the app and sync again your playslist. It's better if you start syncing ONLY the local files, so you can check in real time if it works.
▶ Kudos for me?
