I noticed the last two albums I added to my library (live recordings) will not upload to iMatch.  Had not had this issue in the past.  I turned off match, added them, then turned back on and scanned my library.  The reason I do that is I find that for such live recordings, it's best to turn off, get into iTunes and edit metadata as necessary, then turn back on.

 

Can't for the life of me get them to upload to cloud and I have done this same procedure many times in the past.  Thoughts?

    Go into song view and let me know what the status is..... Waiting, uploaded, etc?

    It says waiting.

    I have the same problem.  Some of the tracks of the last CD I imported never upload; they remain in waiting status.  An interesting thing, I deleted the tracks from my iMac and iCloud and re-ripped the CD.  Guess what?  Exactly the same songs are stuck waiting!

     

    Weird.

    Are these ALAC tracks? There's been reports of iTM having trouble recently processing ALAC tracks.

    Yes, they are. Do you realize how **** poor it is for apple to have problems using their own file format?  Anyway, I hope they figure it out soon. This is rediculous.

    Indeed, it is rather silly.

    There are now many discussions on this topic.  I added a lot detail here: https://discussions.apple.com/message/21568868#21568868.

    I had been having the same problems as everyone else and after reading all the complaints in all the discussions and trying every possible solution I have been able to get past this.  I have an iMac, Charter cable modem (30Mbps down and 4 Mbps up) and an Airport Extreme. I determined that my problem, like others, was isolated to my home network (not songs).  Found this out by setting my iPad (with Verizon Data Plan) up as a personal Hot Spot and connecting the iMac to it wirelessly.  Suddenly all songs in "Waiting" status began to upload, at least until my data plan was exhausted (About 250 songs), so I knew this was a networking problem. I in no way profess to be any kind of a network guru but I researched everything possible anyway. Apple routers do not offer QoS settings.  However, Apple has a piece of software for download that developers use for testing called "Network Line Conditioner".  Can't remember where I found it off hand, but figured it was a safe product to try since it was an Apple product and not some third party software. Initially I had no luck modifying the direct LAN connection to the router so I disconnected the LAN cable from the iMac. I then turned on the Mac's Wi-Fi and connected to my home network. After trying several of the pre-set options in the program, I was able to find one that worked and I slowed down my Upload speed and made a 1% allowance for dropped packets (My custom setting, I'm not sure I even know what dropped packets are).  Don't know what this fixed or what the problem really was but my songs in "Waiting" now upload without problems or failures or restarting.  The (GUI) program is very easy to use and simple to turn "On" and "Off".  When "On" it resides up top near the "Signal Strength" indicator and is selectable with a "Right Click".  I can't promise that this will work for any or all but I wanted to share my success.  Maybe others can elaborate on my lack of "Network Knowledge" and explain this a little better. Good luck to all!

    It still is not working.  Can anyone else confirm,?

    Hi,

    Problem still exists. The thread mentioned earlier shows a work around.

    There are no albums for me to rip from.  These are personal recordings that I made into ALAC files and brought into i-Tunes.

    Hi,

    As the tracks would be converted to 256 kpbs for uploading, I suggest that you create another version as AAC so that it can be uploaded. Whilst this is not ideal, you will have a version uploaded that can be used in your iOS devices.
