I recently purchased a new computer and, since I have iTunes Match, set it up to transfer my music and playlists from the cloud. It seemed to work fine, except one large playlist will not transfer. I have signed in and turned iTunes Match on both my current main computer system and the new computer system; I have updated iTunes Match on both computers. It has had no impact on transferring this one, single playlist from among all my playlists to the new system.


I'm baffled. Why would iTunes Match transfer some playlists and not others?

Windows 8, iTunes is the product, not listed

    Hi dsommers,


    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.  It may be related to the content of the playlists. iTunes Match will not sync playlists that include any content not in iTunes Match, such as PDFs (album books), videos, etc:


    Apple - iTunes - Match


    Will my playlists sync across devices?
    Yes. When you create, edit, or delete a playlist on your Mac, PC, iPhone, or iPad, those changes will sync across any iTunes Match-enabled device you own. However, playlists with videos, voice memos, or PDF files will not sync.
