Just bought 3 songs from Rihanna's latest album.  iTunes search on the library unable to find them?


Download has worked, eventually found them in 'Recent Purchase' playlist.


Why is iTunes unable to find these as usual?


The songs play perfectly ... they are stored in the correct sub-directory, show as purchased 256k ACC ...


Looks like the library file is not being updated - if so, how to force update?


Thoughts welcome ...

iTunes 10, Windows 7, iTunes 11

    Right click each Song & select 'consolidate'; accept the action is permanent; the Songs now appear in search.  Issue solved!


    Not sure why this occured but the solution is effective.

    The problem you saw is an intermittent but longstanding problem whereby the songs really are in the library, and do show up in playlists, but do not display in the Music list.


    There are a few home remedies for the problem, but you have discovered a new one!
