How To Fix iOS 5 Beta 7 Music And Video Bug:
The procedure to fix iOS 5 beta 7 music bug is actually very simple. You basically need to connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to the computer and re-sync all of your music and videos back on your device and you will cease to encounter this problem.

Regardless of what you think, if you don't do this, you won't be able to fix iOS 5 beta 7 music and video bug.
Step 1: Plug in your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to the computer. iTunes will automatically pop up.
Step 2: When iTunes comes up, select your device from the left sidebar.
Step 3: Once your device opens up in iTunes, click on the Music tab. Uncheck Sync Music and click on Sync to remove the entire iTunes library that you previously synced on your iOS device.
Step 4: Once iTunes finishes removing the entire library from your device, reopen the Music tab and recheck Sync Music. Now click on Sync.
