Hi all,

Can anyone try to download these songs from iTunes Match:

Artist: The Flaming Lips
Album: Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
Song: Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell

Artist: Radiohead
Album: Anmesiac
Song: Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors

Ie, if you can, delete them from your library and then re-download them from iTunes Match. I believe iTunes Match's copy is corrupted. Mine don't play. They don't show an icon in finder, and no music program can open them.

Try deleting the local file and downloading again from iCloud. I had a few instances where there was a bad download but deleting and downloading again fixed the problem.

Both these songs play fine for me. The Flaming Lips track is a purchased one for me and the Radiohead is a matched track.

Same problem. iTunes Match seems to have sent me back a corrupted version of Fight Test (along with 24 other songs in my library).

Deleting and redownloading from iCloud still gives me an error whenever I try to convert to MP3/AAC, or convert to 128 to sync with my devices

Same for all 24 other songs.
