i thought they were the same as mp3's and I have them set to be played with
itunes...have lots of songs in this format and when on shuffle they don't play and instead there is a long gap until the player finds a song that is not in that format.

Welcome to the forums.

If you mean MPEG-2 Audio Layer III, well that's MP3.

Older music purchased via iTunes could still have DRM protection. Such tracks would play fine in iTunes but not in Sonos.
