    Same problem here. PC Win7/x64. Music purchased on my iPhone shows up in my 'recently added' and 'purchased' list on my PC but not in the basic music library. Creating AAC/MP3 versions as suggested by some is a hack. This must just be another bug in iTunes to go with the already flaky iTunes match (that always crashes at step 3). My faith in Apple is becoming very thin

    Having the same issue:


    1. Purchase a song on my Mac.
    2. Song shows as downloading.
    3. Song is not added to my library.
    4. Song appears and can be played immediately on my iPhone 4S and iPad 3 with iTunes Match enabled.


    REALLY annoying.

    I'm having the same issue. I buy a song/album on an iDevice, I see the songs download in my iTunes library on my Mac, but not all of the purchased songs show up in the library or on other iDevices. I've restarted iTunes Match, updated iTunes Match, but no luck. Right now, I have 2 out of the 10 songs showing in my library which were purchased as part of the album.

  • tonysif Level 1 (0 points)

    Update: All 10 of the songs show up in the 'Purchased' tab on the iTunes Store (but not the 'Purchased' tab in my library) and have a cloud symbol next to them. I hit the 'download' button for the entire album and watched them download. There are STILL ONLY 2 of 10 songs in my library.

    The solution, as posted earlier in this thread, is to delete the tracks that do show up in the iTunes library, then go to your purchase history in the iTunes Store and download the album again. This will generally get the entire album to show up.

    I had a similar issue where I had LAN synced my iTunes Media folder from my desktop to my Laptop, both Windows 7, using a separate program, GoodSync.  All the songs that I had recently added to the desktop iTunes were present on the laptop music folder BUT were not showing in the library NOR were avaliable to sync to my iPad.  I even deleted iTunes 10 and upgraded to iTunes 11, but no change.


    I then added just one of the "missing" folders from within the Music folder into the library and if appeared in the Library OK.  I tried it again and it did not end up with duplicates in the Library, so I then added the whole Music folder that contains all my music files, including those missing, into my library.   I then had all the new, missing albums in the Library.


    There is clearly an iTunes issue here.  Unless I have missed something, there is no "Library update" process in iTunes.  I had tried the File/Library/Organise Library, which one may have thought was the obvious process, without result.


    Hope this helps.

    I have a Retina 13", 10.8.2 and iTunes 11. Before the latest iTunes update I could download songs from beatport into my "downloads' folder and itunes would pick it up and put it in my 'songs' section and play it automatically. now i cant do any of that, dragging the files in does nothing. So I re-start iTunes and soemtimes if im lucky they appear.


    This is the latest in a long line of issues im having with Apple products of late, it is such a shame you cannot swear on this forum.


    Steve Jobs would turn in his grave. Shambles.

    It's due to a permissions issue probably linked to iTunes Match and the manner in which it uses the iTunes library.  With iTunes Match turned off, purchased/downloaded music gets added to the iTunes library but with it turned on it doesn't and downloaded files remain in the Downloads sub-folder of the iTunes Media folder.  Apple should fix this in the next update.

  • chrisell Level 1 (10 points)

    Another Match problem? Eeesh. This thing's turning out to be a liability. Corrupted tracks, step 3 crashes, doesn't like large files, doesn't like tracks longer than an hour. Steve must be spinning in his grave

  • chrisell Level 1 (10 points)

    This is now fixed in tonight's update

  • bunter99 Level 1 (0 points)

    on mac just re-add purchased song from your library, add to library/type in the song title/open/ It worked for me.

  • Sixstring78 Level 1 (10 points)

    I'm having pretty much the same issue.

    I've tried purchasing some songs lately from iTunes and they do not show up in the "Purchased" list, my music library or the "recently added" list.

    I've tried turning off iTunes match and this did not make a difference.  I've tried turning iTunes match back on, did not make a difference.  I've tried restarting iTunes, did not make a difference.

    Frustrating to say the least.

  • Stonebat Level 1 (0 points)

    New update fixed this for me...

  • anon_e Level 1 (0 points)

    I tried, and this worked.

    Previously, the "Keep iTunes Media Folder organized" was unchecked. I just checked it, and the new purchased content shows up like magic (well not exactly.. it did take a while for organizing and all , but I'm happy it shows up now).

  • Pangono Level 1 (0 points)

    The new update to iTunes did fix it for me... temporarily. The missing albums showed up but I've just imported two more and they aren't visible. Match is off so that's not the issue.
