Lumia 920 music files won't play

I have transferred music files from one of my i-tunes on a Windows 7 laptop and these play ok. But when I have dropped & dragged files from i-tunes from an XP (s3) laptop I can see the files in my music folder on my Lumia 920, but can't access them from the phone.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Have you put those files in default music folder where you had put previously?

Both sets of files show in default 'My Music' file, and look identical, but files transfered from XP machine don't show up on phone

Are they protected? So when playing on the pc is it via the Win iTunes app?

 

Also try syncing them to the phone via Win Media player

@rakeshlumia by "high quality" music is it flac files? I hope you would have compatible music files as windows phone 8 doesn't support playback of FLAC codecs....Lumia 920 only supports playback of some audio/video files as mentioned here:

Don't think there is an app available which can play flac files AFAIK....btw no offence meant but you can always download songs from mix radio of your favorite singer no?

or there is always the option of converting FLAC to mp3 or other format, but unfortunately you will take a hit in audio quality, which probably defeats the purpose of having FLAC in the first place.
