    With iTunes 10.6 and its purported improvements to iTunes Match, could anyone tell me if they find a way to rescan previously unmatched songs? I tried the "Update iTunes Match" command but my match stats are unchanged.

    Might end up deleting and re-adding the tracks. Shouldn't be *too* painful ...

    I tried that with my 500 or so tracks that didn't match properly...

    it matched 9 of them.

    Better than nothing, I suppose, but not much.

    Thanks for sharing. Still tossing up whether it's worth the effort (I have about 2500 unmatched).

    Anyone else tried it?

    How exactly did you get the 9 songs to match?
    I moved 388 songs to a temp folder then deleted them.
    Removed them from the cloud.
    Turned off iTunes Match.
    Added the songs back, turned on iTunes Match.
    Only 3 songs uploaded during this process so I thought thing were going well.

    After all was done none of the 388 songs matched. I deleted a couple of random songs and they were available for download. I wonder if I didn't wait long enough for them to be deleted form the cloud. If 3 of the 388 uploaded the rest should have been matched, right?

    Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.

    That's pretty much what I did. I copied the unmatched files out of iTunes to a new folder, deleted the files from iCloud. The only different step I took was to create a new library which only contained the unmatched tracks and turned on Match. When it was all done, it showed 9 tracks as matched.
