If you have copied MP3 files to the usb stick then that is what they should be on the stick. I know of no way they can 'magically' be transformed to a different file format just by copying them.

Put the stick back into the pc and look at the contents to see how they are listed by the pc.

Could this be related to DRM protection on some of your mp3s?

Not sure how they work, just throwing you some ideas.

Will the ones that don't play on the Mac play from the stick on the pc?

I would just wipe the stick and recopy them, sounds like they got corrupted.

Dependant how many songs you have, burn them to a cd/cdrw as mp3 to transfer them.
