My Question or Issue

A few songs in my library will play until a song stops 1-3 seconds before it is supposed to end and I receive the blue bar at the top of the screen saying "can't play the current song". I have turned off hardware acceleration, restarted my computer, uninstalled and reinstalled the application and nothing has worked. It has been happening for a week or 2.
