    After trying everything I could think of AND calling Apple (who only pointed me to an article that didn't even address the issue), I found Newmach's post which totally worked.  ONE SUGGESTION:  download PhoneBrowse instead of iExplorer.  iExplorer will no longer let you cut/copy/or delete files with the free/demo version.  PhoneBrowse worked perfectly.  The only change is the file path is Iphone/file system/itunes_control/itunes

    This is in response to new match and all the most recent posts.  As an observation only, it appears the everyone that feels here uses iTunes on Windows rather than a Mac.  Sounds odd in that this is a Mac Forum.  To that add the mention . What would out using PhoneBrowse supports my theory.

     

    However my point is it also assumes that is that a PC or a Mac of any type running OS X.  In my case, however, since I sold my 2011 MBAir, I have only the iPad as my computer, would this not throw a kink into this solution because I have never beem made aware or moving/removing iphone files simply by using the iPhone?

     

    In this new "Post PC" era we are supposed to be in, then more and more of us humans are dumping laptops in favor tablets.  That being the case, if this were ever to happen again, and i am getting the 5S, iPad Mini 2, and and the new iPad 5, this next few months, what will then be the "at home" solution?

    The iexplorer fix worked for me! Thanks so much to everyone who posted. After hours of trying to get iTunes match to work and no answers from apple I thought I was out of options! Newmach's post worked perfectly. I did have to repeat the process a few times (probably an error on my part) but I was ultimately able to get iTunes match to reload.

     

    1. connect iPhone, open iExplorer

    2. navigated to iPhone\Media\iTunes_Control\iTunes

    3. copied these 3 files to my desktop:

              MediaLibrary.sqllitedb

              MediaLibrary.sqllitedb-shm

              MediaLibrary.sqllitedb-wal

    4. deleted the same 3 files from my iPhone

    5. performed a hard reboot on my iPhone (home button + sleep/wake button, hold until you see the apple logo)

     

    This process fixed my problem!

     

    Side note: I ultimately had to pay for iexplorer before this process worked but it saved me having to drive to the Genius Bar so it was worth it!

     

    Thanks Newmach!
