    This solved my question by Antgeez  on Sep 20, 2012 1:45 PM

    Antgeez

    Found a solution on another thread.. It actually worked!

     

    1. Download and install iExplorer http://www.macroplant.com/iexplorer/

    2. Plug in iPhone first, then open iExplorer

    3. Delete the iPhone\Media\iTunes_Control folder (you can copy it to your laptop, just in case)

    4. Reboot the iPhone

    5. Turn on iTunes Match in settings.

    6. Start Music app

    Still no succes. Status quo. I´m about to give up. Have tried to restore the phone a couple of times. No change. I still can not remove the empty musicfiles from the phone.  I can actually not o anything with the music. Not ad, not remove. If I only could play the music but its only text - empty files.

    All works fine with my IPad. Just like before IOS6.

    Perhaps I should start to verbaly threaten my phone.

    did you try this, it worked for a bunch of users on this thread -

     

     

     

    I tried all the fixes mentioned - Restore, Turn off/on Match, etc. but finally found a fix that worked in a related post https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3865948?start=30&tstart=0

     

    Repeating the exact steps:

     

    Used the ifunbox app (www.i-funbox.com) - it is free.

     

    The path for the required files is Raw File System/iTunes_Control/iTunes

     

    Deleted these three files (taking a leap of faith that I couldn't screw things up more than Apple already had):

    MediaLibrary.sqllitedb

    MediaLibrary.sqllitedb-shm

    MediaLibrary.sqllitedb-wal

     

    Then reboot the iphone.

     

    Completely solved the problem in 5 minutes (if you don't count the prior 3 hours attempting other fixes).

     

    My setup is an iPhone 4 updated to iOS6

    I guess this only helps if you' re using Match. Or? I can not find them and I am not using Match.

    I don't have iTunes Match, but when I upgraded my iPod Touch to iOS 6, all my playlists and their contents disappeared completely from the iPod. 

     

    I found a cockamamie fix via a link at https://discussions.apple.com/message/15195120#15195120 - The fix itself is at http://osxdaily.com/2010/11/24/fix-for-no-content-on-iphone-ipod-after-ios-4-2-1 -update/

     

    Here's the fix:

     

    On your iPod, tap on “Settings” and then on “General” and then on “International”

    Change your Language to another option, for example if your default is English, change it to Francais

    Relaunch the iPod app and wait for the iPod library to update

    Your music has returned; navigate back to Language settings and revert back to English (or your default)

     

    It sounds completely crazy, but it actually worked: all my playlists magically showed up again on my iPod!

    Solved it.

    Downloaded IFunbox for PC, found the three files mentioned.

    Deleted them. But it didnt work straight away, had to do it several times.

    Think I deleted them, made adjustments in the Iphone settings to "sync via WiFi", "handle music manually".

    I pulled all music from library to phone, then disconected the USB.

    Phone synced for a couple of hours.

    This morning nothing had changed.

    But I turned the phone off, and then on again. Voilá, It worked. And there were much joy!

    I found that re-setting my iPhone 5 and then setting it up as a new iPhone instead of restoring it from a backup fixed this issue with iTunes Match where it just hangs.

    I had this problem also when I updated to iOS 6 software on my iPhone 4S.  After removing the itunes match on the phone and itunes and it didn't fix the issue.  The empty songs were removed but I just got the icloud hang up.  I then tried to restore the phone to factory settings via the icloud and it would not complete it.  I then restored the phone to factory settings as a new iphone and that fixed the music issue.

    I am curious...why do you use itunes match, instead of a free alternative like say storing your mp3 in dropbox and playing when you need them? is there a benefit in paying for itunes match?

  • 237. Re: iOS 6 Music Not Really There
    Farfeloo Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I don't think that dropbox is a free alternative with your library clocking at around 60 GB:-))) not to mention that iTunes Match is the only way to add files into the iPhone music app on the go... or that you don't have to upload most of the files... iTunes Match is pretty much a bargain, if you listen to a lot of music..
