I did three things that seemed to cure it. Reduced my sd card to a 16gb size, turned off all xbox settings and finally in wmp I set the conversion rate for files higher than the default. Not sure if it was one or all that made the difference but all the music files now play great.

Hey! So I was really irritated over the same error code, the only thing that I found to solve it on my Windows Phone 8 is to plug your phone into your computer "open to view files" using windows explorer, and cut the ORIGINAL download from your computer, and paste it to the music section in your phone. Don't rename it, don't create a new folder, don't pass go, don't collect $200. Your phone should work all of that out for you. Finally, my songs are playing. If you have bought the music and you don't want to run the risk of having it only in your phone, you can get a free copy form mp3skull.com
That's where I get all of my music, buying it is a waste of time because most of the time I end up losing it..
Hope this helped!

I have a Nokia 822 with expandable micro SD card. Specs say 64 gb is possible, I use a 32 gb. After weeks of frustrations with music I think I have something working now. I've chatted with Nokia's site, no luck - didn't get anyone who had a real answer.
Everytime I put an mp3 or wma file on the phone from my own PC collection, the file would 50% of time time be unreadable with error 80070002 or 80070003 or other errors. The card would become corrupt and I would reformat it on my PC. I tried FAT32, exFAT both with the same result. I would only use the Windows Phone desktop app for Win7 to move the files and would get the errors. If I stored the music on the phone's internal memory it seemed to work better (at least the corruption would stop) but again 50% of the files where not playable. I even tried an old 8gb card, same problem so I went back to my 32 gb class 10.
I tried to transcode all my music to .wma as this format seemed more friendly, I was wrong same problems. So I did the hard this and hard reset the phone and re-formatted the SD card and started fresh. Some music transferred with no errors, but then the playable problem persisted again with mp3 or wma.
I noticed that WP8 supports AAC files, so I transcoded all my files to AAC (actually .m4a which is just another file extension but is AAC format inside). I use foobar2000 freeware to do the work.
Then I transferred the music using just windows explorer and low and behold the music is there are readable. You even get a windows pop-up saying that the device doesn't support .m4a files but I transferred them anyway and it's working perfectly. Hard to beleive mp3 and wma implementation on WP8 is so terrible, even my BlackBerry handeled this with ease. Love everything about the phone, I just don't like to have to transcode music to listen to it.

Similar problems here. What I am going to suggest is defiantly not going to solve all of the music (sync) problems but do eject your phone when removing from computer. This is not the main issue but I feel in some cases it could defiantly be exacerbating the problem.

Good Morning Guys,
I used to have the same issue. Next the steps to resolve this issue:
1.- I took out my Micro Sd Card and plug it to a Mac using an Adapter. I copied all the files from the card to the Mac.
2.- Then i formatted the Sd Card using my Lumia
3.- I plugged back the memory card into the Mac and transferred the files to the Memory card.
4.- Inserted the SD Card back to my phone, restarted the phone and the issue was resolved.
Hope this will help you guys.

Hi Guys, I am not sure if this will help you all but it did help me as all my music files are playing fine now.
Just used logic that if its mp3 then it should be playing on phone, but then if the extension is different or confusing for phone to identify, then it will definitely cause an error. The song name that is seen on the screen when attached to a PC is different from the actual Title Name of that song and when you download songs from any site then usually they do end up writing the song name with their .com address further to it in the Title Name and maybe this was causing the confusion for phone while playing songs.
So all I did was, deleted the Title Name of all songs by right click and in properties (for novice to understand) and there you go, I recopied it on my phone and all songs are playing perfectly well.
Yes, there is one problem in doing so, the songs are recopied and therefore you need to copy all songs from phone to PC to edit and delete all songs from the phone to avoid duplicates.
Please let me know if this particular solution worked or not....
Microsoft needs to work a lot on music related problems & queries as phone users highly love & uses cameras & music, if any one of them disappoints then one tends to shift from that phone or OS.

I had the same problem with my 1520. here is how did I solved it :
1 - Deleted every single song from my mobile through xbox music & videos app from the phone.
2 - Recopied the songs again from the computer using (send to) order.
The problem was completely solved.
