My Question or Issue
Some of the imported songs that I have in my playlist don't download, while some show that they are downloaded. The songs all play just fine and there is only 797 songs that I want to download. Also, I don't know if this means anything but some of the songs don't show that they're downloaded until I scroll down and up the playlist to check again (specific songs just continue to show that they aren't downloaded).

Thanks for reaching out to the Community.
Please keep in mind that only files obtained from an official distributor and in the supported formats listed here can be imported. If that is the case, we recommend restarting your router or giving it a go with a different internet connection altogether. Also try disabling any Firewall and antivirus software and making sure Spotify is allowed through the Firewall settings.
If the issue persists, it's also a good idea to change the source of the local files. Simply create a new folder in a different directory on your device and move your local files to this folder. Then just delete the old folder used for the local files. Now you can try importing the files again.
Hope you find this useful. Let us know how you get on.
I fixed this problem by opening the local files folder, (by default /Users/*username*/Music/Spotify) and deleting all the files and folders in that folder (all the downloads) and restarting Spotify. I had to redownload all the songs, but it downloaded all of them without skipping any (note this might take awhile depending on how many songs you have to download). Also make sure you have a strong secure internet connection the whole time it is downloading.
