Anyone else having this occur? I get it often. It's not just with McCartney and Crow. It's sporadic. Anyone know of a fix?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.7)

    On what device is this happening? What is the iCloud Status of the original files in iTunes: matched, purchased or uploaded? More detail please.

    All of them... iPad, iphone4s and Mac.

    Sorry I didn't answer your other question. The status in cloud is different all the time. I download to the cloud and the next time I open iTunes some have gone and some haven't.  I have matched everything. I am sure it happened when I turned on Match.

    I do not understand your reply.


    Let's back up and start over. The album in question (a Paul McCartney album)... where did you get it? Did you purchase it from the iTunes store or rip it from CD? What is the iCloud Status of all the tracks on the Album? What, if anything, did you do with the tracks after they were "matched?"

    There are approximately 90 different songs, ripped and purchased from itunes, that are now Sheryl Crow's Leaving Las Vegas. I believe it happened when I turned on Match but I downloaded everything to the Cloud at the same time so I am not sure of the culprit. 


    Anyway, now there are about 90 songs that have the correct song and album art but when you play it you get Leaving Las Vegas. I tried "Show in inTunes" and although the song may have, for example, Sublime listed it comes up as Sheryl in iTunes as well.



    To answer your question I have downloaded everything to icloud but the cloud status  is ever changing. I can have downloaded everything to the cloud on tuesday but on wednesday it will show songs needing to be downloaded or that a itunes purchased song is not allowed in the icloud. The songs are always different.  I only have 900 songs but it's a very confusing mess...especially since most of it was purchased from iTunes.


    I turned off Match today and am going to try and download my purchases again but becuase iTunes store thinks the song is Sheryl Crow as well I am not sure that it will work.

    You're using some incorrect terminology. Tracks are not "downloaded to the cloud." You only ever download from the cloud; or upload to the cloud.


    You say the library was correct before you enabled iTunes Match, is that correct? Do you have your music backed up to an external HDD?
