Hi all.  I find myself up s**t creek without a paddle.  I have subscribed to iTunes Match, which I find to be an excellent service.  However, I'm travelling (by ship) and don't have an internet connection for the forseeable future.  I recently, prior to departing on my voyage, scrubbed my phone and ipad for extra space, so I deleted all of my music content, knowing my music would be with me on my laptop.  However, now I want to walk around the ship and listen to my music, which I assumed I would be able to sync with my laptop.  Unfortunately, I can't find any iTunes or iPhone options to sync any music because it says iTunes Match is enabled.  There are no options to disable iTunes Match either.  I'm using the latest version of iOS (5.1) on an iPhone 4S purchased in Japan, as well as the most recent (as of 4/1/2012) version of iTunes on my Macbook Pro running OS X Lion.


Thanks for any help someone might offer.
