Music library Apple messed up my songs

Hello. I hardly ever have anything to complain about Apple's music, but today I noticed something really weird. I got about 60 GB of songs in my computer when I signed firstly for the Apple's music and has my synchronized library. Well, it happened last year and since then I had no problems with it.

But I just did a clean install of El Capitan on my macbook and so lost all the file of songs I had stored. 'No problem', I have thought, "they are still all in my music library apple, as long as I have access to the internet, I can listen to all". It so happened I had some songs very special and unique, like an instrumental version of sadness Summertime Lana Del Rey. Boy was I surprised when I tried to play and played the version of iTunes is in fact identical to the album version.

So I ask you, Apple: where is my instrumental song by Lana Del Rey? If it's in the cloud, how can I listen to it?

So I went and looked for other similar songs, and they are all screwed up. My set of The Killers live album is not powered, each song is the version of the album, even with the (live) song in it.

I can't help thinking that apple music spread a kind of false when propaganda advertising that we were able to listen to our songs from any device. It turns out that this is not always the case. I ask you once again: where are my files of original songs? How can I listen to them?

I expect an honest answer.



Inadequacy of live versions of studio music is a common problem. ic-fingerprints /

In any case, the music you download from Apple will have music DRM and you will only be able to play them as long as you subscribe to the Apple's music.

Your solution is to restore your original music of your back ups

  • Why are my ineligible tracks for iCloud music library?

    Recently, I turned on the Apple music on my Mac and turned on iCloud music library. Most of my songs have been downloaded without problem, but there were some, including some of my favorite pieces, which is apparently not eligible for the cloud.

    These songs are songs that I bought years ago while they are protected AAC audio files and I bought the on another Apple ID as I used to share one with a family member before me to be my own. However, my laptop is allowed to play the songs of this ID, and there were many other tracks protected in my library bought with other Apple ID, that have been matched / downloaded without any problem.

    In addition, all tracks are 128 Kbps, so that they are in the range of quality to download. None is more than 200 MB, so the file size is not the issue.

    All tracks are still currently available on the iTunes Store and Apple's music catalog.

    Is there another reason they might be inadmissible? And, if so, is there a way to solve this problem and download them to my music library to iCloud?


    I own a small number of titles that I could not be upgraded. While some of the songs where still in the iTunes Store, they have been republished on / remastered versions of the same album.

    I suggest you burn these tracks on an audio cd and rerip them. You can get a match.


  • Why can't get my music on Apple music?

    I believe that this question was asked here several times but I do not see that it has been answered.

    I have music from Apple, and I have a lot of songs on my 6 iPhone through Apple music.  However, it is a fair bit of stuff that I have on my MacBook, which is not on the Apple's music.  Why can't I just put these albums on my iPhone via iTunes as I used to?

    All I get when I try to sync is "iCloud Music Library Is On" but if I try turn off voltage, it tells me I'm losing every album that I saved my music Apple, which is hundreds and hundreds... and something I don't want to do.

    Can someone help me please?

    You cannot synchronize manually if you use Apple music disco iCloud.

    Apple music works such that if the songs in your library iTunes on your computer is not found in the iTunes Store music library, it will download the unmatched songs so you can still access it if the music to iCloud service.

    To do this, iTunes must analyze your library on your computer and download these songs.

    If you turn off iCloud music library, then everything that is in iTunes on your computer will replace the content of the music on your iPhone app. This is why he warns you.

    Your iPhone and your library of music from iTunes on your computer must contain the same elements. The iPhone can also contain a subset of the items in your iTunes library, but essentially, it's all on the music from your iPhone app must already exist on your computer in order to avoid the deletion of things on the iPhone.

  • Music library playing a song wrong to iCloud

    I just noticed a strange bug in my iTunes music library to play the wrong version of one of my songs.  Here's the scoop:

    I have the album of Pink Floyd The Wall on my main library that is local to one of my computers.  Because I have iCloud music enabled, which allows my other computers listen to the songs I have in my main library, I am able to listen to The Wall of another Mac.  However, it's playing the wrong version of "Another Brick In The Wall (part 2)," which, on my computer which is streaming the track plays the live version of the track (which I believe is from the album Pulse, which is a horrible post-Roger Waters album).

    In my main music library, which has the original album that I've scanned there nearly 20 years, the length of the track is 04:01. However, when I listen to the song with another Mac, who plays bad live version, the length of the track is 07:07.  Now, if the runtime is the same, then I would chalk up a simple glitch where the Apple servers has confused, in the course of the same artist, even followed by name, same DURATION... but since it's a completely different album and different runtime... real head scratcher for me there.

    Just wanted to put this out there and see if anyone else has had this happens, and if there is some sort of fix.  I have not spent a lot of time to my music from my other computers, so I don't know if it's just an a stop or a bug that assail you my library continuously.

    Since you are being invited to turn off Genius, you can add music, please use the following information to resolve these two issues:

    Turn on or off the Genius

    If iCloud music library is enabled, you cannot disable Genius.

    Choose file > library > Genius (toggle Genius).

    Turning off the Genius Genius Genius Shuffle shuts and and the Genius Mix.

    Since the update to iTunes I don't see my purchased music. When I try to import my old playlists I get a message saying that the library is not a valid iTunes library. Thus, thousands of songs and hundreds of films and I can't see or play one. I see my movie library where it is stored on an external hard drive, but my music was on my iMac.

    Where all the playlists gone and why didn't appear my entire music library? I checked the preferences and iTunes points to the correct folder, BUT only my music purchased appears...

    Same thing happened to me. I tried to replace iTunesLibrary.itl with an older copy, but that has not worked. Then I tried to return a version by resetting the Time Machine's iTunes app, but it would allow me to edit or delete iTunes because it is part of Mac OS X.

    So, I can not sync my iPad or iPhone, update all apps or find my music, that is, the course of the odf, still on my hard drive. ITunes just can't see the library.

  • Question about the music library to iCloud (music Apple) and iTunes on mac

    Download I m just of my iTunes in the music library of iCloud library. Since I was afraid that my library of 40000 + titles could get corrupted or metadata could be changed by apple, I downloaded the files from a 'second' machine (macbook) - just to be on the safe side and keep my iTunes library local main on my iMac intact by iCloud (for the moment).

    Now everything seems fine with iCloud music library, but after all the titles/songs are in iCloud now, what happens if I disable the library iCloud music on the 'second' machine and Activate the library iCloud music on my main machine (iMac), which has the same local as my second machine iTunes library? (= the same local iTunes library, which has been already downloaded?)

    ICloud/iTunes will recognize that all songs/files are already uploaded to the music library iCloud and doe 'nothing', or download will process all over again and will lead to 'double' all the files/songs in iCloud?

    The same question arises if we restore iTunes library local on a mac from a backup + switches on iCloud music library a second time... will be iTunes + icloud music library download all the files again or not?

    Unless something is wrong, it should recognize and not duplicate.

  • Match vs Apple-ITunes music (library iCloud)

    Is there a reason to maintain a subscription Match after Apple signed music to iTunes? the main reason that I had another match was to maintain access continuous songs "incomparable" (especially my own demos and stuff notcommercially available) that Match uploaded to the cloud. It seems that Apple music is that too by iCloud library. Am I missing something?

  • In the music of Apple, why have I not the option 'make available offline' more? He disappeared for months, regardless of the song I am listening.

    I am a subscriber of music to apple for months now, and initially, it worked fine. Then one day, I didn't have the 'make available offline' option more, and it never came back.  I tried many songs, thinking that perhaps the option has been locked for some songs, but it did not help. If I can't download music, then I won't keep my subscription being Apple's music.

    Hello Wognum,

    Thank you for using communities Support from Apple!

    It is my understanding that when Apple's music using it continuously jumps to the next song, without playing one of them.  I'll try my best to help with this.

    The first thing I would do, it's what is on the backup computer.  Nothing that I will propose should result in no data loss, but it's always a good idea to have a backup.  Your computer has software called Time Machine.  It is a fantastic software for backing up your computer.  Information on how to use Time Machine is available here:

    Use Time Machine to back up or restore your Mac.

    Assuming all other internet access works correctly, it is important to try to isolate what is causing this to happen.  The first thing to do to help isolate what is causing the problem is set up a test user account and see if Apple music works properly there.  Follow all the instructions that you will find on this page:

    How to test a question in another account on your Mac.

    If the problem does not occur in the test user account, then you will want to check the connection points of the account where Apple music will not play.  Try to remove the elements of connection and see if it plays properly.
