ITunes Match just added old purchased songs, I don't want those songs anymore. I just want my music to be iTunes quality.

I purchased iTunes Match, and all I noticed that it did was pull songs I purchased from iTunes many years ago. Songs that I don't want anymore. I just want songs that weren't purchased from iTunes to get uploaded and converted to better quality. Did iTunes do this for me, and I just didn't see it? Or did I purchase something, and didn't get the expected results? How can I get iTunes to upload and convert my lower quality music?
iTunes 10.5.3.3 on a PC.

That's odd for sure.
Anyway, first set the iPod to manage the songs manually.
Then, select the iPod in the source list of iTunes, and click on the "music" option underneath it to show all your songs. Highlight the song(s) you no longer want on the iPod, right click and select "clear". The songs should be deleted from the iPod.
Now you can change the iPod back to your auto sync preference.

  • I just lost hundreds of songs due to this new software update...I can't find them anywhere in iTunes! Is there ANYTHING that can be done to restore those songs?!?!

    Please help me figure this out......having NO MUSIC is like ripping off a part of me and throwing it away : (   Just devastating.

    If you have iTunes 10.3 or later and you are a resident of the U.S. you can re download past iTunes purchases for free.
    Click Purchased under Quick Links right side of the iTunes Store window.

  • ITunes match:  my iPhone 4s shows my playlists, but there are no songs!  What's up?

    iTunes match:  my iPhone 4s shows my playlists, but there are no songs!  What's up?

    Normal Playlists should be working
    Smart playlist should be working, but i got also some faulty PL on the played recents etc..
    Smart playlists depending on other smart playlists don't work all the time.
    ok I had my troubles aswell with this - during the holidays I reserved some time to rebuild my iphone from scratch. Just to clean it up after 1,5 years working and playing around with it. And suprrise surpise, playlists, songs, etc... all info on the iphone showed correctly and worked well!
    So after rebuilding from scratch (took my a couple of hours) i can now start playing around with itunes match.
    I know, its a lot of work, but i think my iphone structure was a bit messed up with all this playing around.
    Perhaps this helps...

  • HT204053 Multiple Apple IDs (2) with Purchases & iTunes Match. Apple TV Purchases. Not happy to have to log in/out to view and enjoy my Purchase Contest. What's the solution?

    Multiple Apple IDs (2) with Purchases & iTunes Match. Apple TV Purchases. Not happy to have to log in/out to view and enjoy my Purchase Contest. What's the solution?

    Hi
    i ran into the same problem. surprisingly though, i am not using multiple apple id and just one mac.
    i did change both the account (apple id) and the computer (from pc to a mac server), but home sharing is on and the apple tv (1) is synced with the new computer.
    i can connect to the itunes store and browse through it (signed in at all times). i cannot purchase any content and cannot play transferred rentals from the computer (apple tv is not authorised...)
    somehow, it seems the apple tv was stuck with a previous id.
    i have just now re-authorised my computer on the account and will give the apple tv another try. i did notice a message during the re-authorisation process. the apple tv is being authorised. this gives me hope.
    in any case, your setup seems to be a dream come through. i decided to phase out my high end multiroom linn kivor system (over 20k back 6y ago) to an itunes based system. apparently you managed to build something.
    i tried an itunes based nas but gave up due to complex operation (and overheating on top) and went for a mac server. i will be using windows clients though.
    most of my content is cd based. can you sync purchased content between pc's? or with a server?

  • I accidentally purchased three songs when I clicked on just one to purchase and I don't know what to do to stop then from downloading or to get them off my iPod..

    I accidentally purchased three songs when I clicked on just one to purchase and I don't know what to do to stop then from downloading or to get them off my iPod..

    Purchases are considered final, but if they were accidental purchases then you could try the 'report a problem' link to contact iTunes Support and see if they will refund or credit you : http://reportaproblem.apple.com
    If the 'report a problem' link doesn't work then you can try contacting iTunes Support via this page : http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/ - click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page, then Purchases, Billing & Redemption
    If they've downloaded onto your iPod then you should be able to delete them from it by swiping/dragging across them from right-to-left on the Songs selection screen in the Music app

  • HT4914 Can I use iTunes match if I am not sure whether there are any pirated songs in my library

    Can I use iTunes match if I am not sure whether there are any pirated songs in my library

    iTunes match should work for that. I am assuming your friend gave you some music from a flash drive, and yor not sure if he/sh pirided it or not, and this is understandible. this screen shot should help. I also sugest looking into google play, which is not as convienet as far as combining with iTunes, but is free I bleive.

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    You can re-download content purchased from the iTunes store (availability varies depending on location) using the purchased option which is revealed in the iTunes app on your iOS device by tapping the more button at the bottom of the screen.

  • Why am I not allowed to activate my product, CS3, when the product is bought years ago and I still have the serial number? It's an old version, but I don't throw products in the bin, just because they are old.

    Why am I not allowed to activate my product, CS3, when the product is bought years ago and I still have the serial number? It's an old version, but I don't throw products in the bin, just because they are old.

    And what exactly is your problem? Other than going of on a tangent about Adobe's alleged evilness preventing you to activate whatever CS3 product, you have not provided any useful info such as what exact problem you have, what system, what product we are axctualyl talking about and so on.

    Find another app to make an inexpensive purchase from.  I know there's stuff for like 99 cents.
    If you can make that purchase, but not one with Blood Brothers, then what does that tell you?

  • Hello! I have a macbook air and my apple ID is using my old email that I don't remember the password to. I want to switch it to my most recent email. How can I do this?

    Hello! I have a macbook air and my apple ID is using my old email that I don't remember the password to. I want to switch it to my most recent email. How can I do this?

    Change your old Apple ID using this link:
    https://appleid.apple.com/
    Click the blue Manage your Apple ID button.
    Its password is unrelated to the password you use for the email associated with it.
    If you don't remember the Apple ID password, click the Reset your password link.
    I already have a new apply id that is set on my phone and ipad. I just want to switch it to that one...
    You cannot change your Apple ID to another one that is already in use - in this case, the one you created for your iPnone and iPad. Decide which Apple ID you want to keep. If you need to change it, change it - don't create a new one.

  • ITunes Match changing status on purchased songs

    I hope some one can help. The other day I found out that my iTunes Match was off. When I turned on I started doing the same thing it did when I first used it. I didn't mind at moment. Later I notice that some of the songs I purchased previously started showing up as uploaded instead of purchased or matched. Beside that everytime I add a new song to my library they never get matched even thought it was purchased on the iTunes Store. This all happen after I upgrade the iTunes to 11.0.2. Now iTunes doesn't give the option of deleting songs from the iCloud instead now they get hide. How can I fix this? Is there a way of erasing all uploaded songs from the iCloud? I understand that I can't delete all songs from iCloud since the matched ones actually come straight from Apple. But what about the uploded ones?
    Thanks

    Hi,
    If you want to try to get purchased status back, delete the tracks from your library and move to trash, select hide in cloud.
    Now go to the iTunes Store, select purchased and download the tracks again. If the tracks were previously protected AAC, they may no longer be available in store and wil be uploaded.

  • Do I have to subscribe to iTunes Match to convert old protected purchases to iTunes Plus?

    I've been using the iTunes store since before it came out (in fact been using the iTunes player since before there was an iPod). So many of my songs are in the old protected .m4a format.
    All the articles I've seen on how to upgrade them to iTunes Plus songs have said you have to subscribe to iTunes Match in order to do so. Surely this can't be the case? I already paid for the songs once, and am willing to pay an additional 30 cents to upgrade them, but I have to pay $25 for a service I don't need to have the privilege of doing so? I don't want to believe Apple would fleece me this hard, but it sure looks like it.

    Hi,
    You don't need subscribe to match.
    Many posters have reported this problem. Have a look at the posts on this topic in the Itunes for Mac forum.
    A suggestion made in some posts is that if you download the free single of the week from itunes store.
    Can't comment any further as I have never encoutered this problem.

  • HT204406 i want to download all the songs from itunes match back to my pc.  there are well over 2000 songs. instead of downloading one by one, is there a way to download all of them while I sleap?

    I want to download all the songs from iTunes Match back to my PC (iTunes).  Instead of downloading one by one, can I have all the songs downloaded back to my iTunes by one shot (while I sleap)?

    I just found the answer by myself.  Instead of clicking Cloud icon one by one, highlight all the songs in Cloud (after sorting by Cloud status) and riight click, download.  Now I am getting all the songs back to my local machine.  I will sync my iOS devices tomorrow and just GET RID OF iTUNES MATCH.  To me, it was a disaster.  Worse than their map app.

  • I have had my phone for a while and I just installed upgrades to it on my new computer everything went well now i imported some music to my itunes and want to put it on my phone and it is telling me it will erase my old itunes library because it is sync t

    my itunes keeps telling me its gonna erase my library if i try to add music. is it gonna erase everything like it already has or just the none existant music that is on my phone

    If you have all of your music in your iTunes library you have nothing to worry about.  Even if syncing wipes your music off your phone it will restore it again during the sync process.  If you have non-purchased music on your phone that is not in your iTunes library, these songs will be lost.  If you have purchased music on your phone that isn't in your iTunes library, you can transfer these by right-clicking on your phone in iTunes and selecting "Transfer Purchase" prior to syncing (and even if they are erased they can be redownloaded for free).

    I recently was given a new dells windows 7 laptop. I then was able to successfully move my itunes library from my old mac to my new dell.

I have exclimation points next to the majority of my music (I have 368 songs in my itunes acount). Please help me be able to sync my songs to my iphone. I am only able to sync about 31 of my songs.

    Copy them from your old computer, or your backuo copy of your old computer. to your new one.
