After getting the match program my iPod is trying to download my entire library from the cloud. I have too much music and not enough space so it is constantly running trying to download and I haven't figured out a way to stop the downloads so that I can get what I want. When trying to deselect the automatic downloads it slides back to on. Is there a way to stop this madness? I can't even listen to what music I do have on it.

iPod touch (4th generation), iOS 6.1.6

    Having automatic downloads on does not cause iTunes Match to automatically download your Match library to your device.  It only causes new purchases made on another device with the same ID to automatically download to your device.


    Try turning off iTunes Match on your device, then turn it back on.  If it's still downloading unwanted media, go to Settings>iTunes & App Store, tap your ID, sign out, then sign back in.

    None of these things worked. I finally ended up resetting the device. That worked.
