    Well I've figured out why all my albums are sorting in such strange orders...

     

    Like I had said before, I have the "sort album" meta data filled in with the years that albums are released. When physically uploaded to iDevices, the albums are sorted by year based on the "sort album" data, rather than alphabetically based on the album title.

     

    It seems like with iTunes Match, any album with the word "The" in the begining has its "sort album" meta data overwritten, and instead uses the alphabetical sorting (dropping the word 'the' of course).

     

    Hopefully this is just a bug that will get fixed, because I really hate having my albums sort alphabetically.

    I would add my voice to the complaints - very annoying that some tracks on an album match and others do not.

     

    I also have a new one - one of the tracks on my itunes matched in the cloud to a completely different track.

     

    I assumed it was a metadata problem so I stripped all of the metadata off - then re-did the itunes match process - and again it matched to the wrong track.

     

    Called apple support who gave a very non-apple response. "We don't know why it is doing that, maybe it will fix itself, realize the servers are very busy just now". The then opted for a solution, "we will call you back later in the week".

     

    Doesn't seem to be a server problem but if I want to get the correct track up to the cloud I need a way to force itunes match not to match a track and just upload it.

     

    Disappointed Apple Fan

    My library has been trying to sync for 24 hours straight; it keeps stopping and starting over. It seems to have identified about half my music as far as I can tell, which Im not too upset about as most of my library is made up if live DJ sets.  The comments on here are making me wonder if the majority of the matches that it made are misidentified.  I have to say I'm not an Apple fan to begin with, and this experience hasn't helped sway my opinion in a positive direction at all.

    24 hours and counting, for me.  I have 17,000+ songs and it only found 3,000 of those.  Uploading is painfully slow, as expected, with 2,500 more to go.

    Well after two days of trying to like it, and trying to make it work for me, I've sent an email into iTunes Accounts/Billing requesting a refund and to cancel my iTunes Match service. The only reason I wanted iTunes Match was to have my whole music library available to me on my 32 GB iPhone, but with so many hassels, its just not worth it. I will be perfectly contect continuing to carry my iPod Classic around with me.

     

    If they improve the service in the future I may try it again, but for now, I've had enough.

  • EdinNYC212 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I only have about 8k, my library is 111GB though

    Weird.  I also have the same problem with Abbey Road.  The only song that did not match was "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window".  I also saw in another thread how another person had the same problem. Hopefully, its just a tweak Apple has to make on their side.  But whatever the case, we need method to rescan.

  • mofobaru Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I left it running all day, and after 10 hours it got stuck again at song 314 of 18,140.

     

    What a joke! Why did Apple even release this? It's total junk. Not even Beta worthy IMO.

    That is strange.  All of Abbey Road matched for me.  I ripped the 2009 Stereo Remaster version at 320kbps.  Wonder if that makes any difference? 

     

    Still, I can sort of understand why an entire album might not match (although it should if it's in the iTunes Store IMO), but why a single or a couple of tracks don't match when the rest do is beyond me.  Hmmm...

  • notyou Level 1 Level 1 (20 points)

    If it wasn't ready-for-primetime, it should have stayed in Beta.  There is NO excuse for these kind of errors.  That's like releasing a car with brakes that only work 99% of the time.  That 1% is VERY important.  Granted, this isn't life-and-death.  But, for a company that has products that are supposed to "just work", this is unacceptable.

     

    Just sayin'...

    Lost my Album art for albums that were "matched" and sent down form the Cloud.

     

    Many of my songs on my iPhone have doubled up.. not sure if this is because I orignaly sync'd my iTunes library on my iPhone and then joined match.

     

    Thoughts?

     

    My iPhone is spinning doing something..  I can oinlhy assume it's Match working in the background. iTunes Music Cloud is "rippling" and doing something on my MBP.. not sure what it is doing though.

    The version of Abbey Road I have which did not match "she came in..." is the original CD that was part of the original box set that came out in the early 90s.

    For all of you having trouble with itunes match:  start small.  Its not a perfect solution, but I found it worked beautifully after I created a new library of 500 songs.  I will be adding in increments.  Its not what I wanted to do, but now that I've done it, it's not so bad.  I plan on having a master library of 20,000+ songs that includes all my bootlegs, rare recordings, and lossless rips.  I will build my second "match" library artist by artist and playlist by playlist.

  • Russa Level 4 Level 4 (1,315 points)

    Lost album art work. And I have many duplicate songs on my iPhone.

  • antmeeks Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Add me to the growing list of people that can't get "She came in..." from Abbey Road to match... along with about 750 other songs that are already on the iTunes Store, but Match is uploading anyway. It's so annoying to have entire albums in AAC 256 - except for one song, right in the middle, as a 128 mp3. !#%$^?!! Sigh...
