    So I joined up yesterday and I am frustrated because some songs did not match. What is irritating about this, is that there are songs on one CD where some matched and some didn't match. Has anyone else had this problem and found a way to fix this?

    Yes, many have had this issue. Sometimes there are small variations, such as the play time that cause it.

    Some of them may match later, if you update match.

    I have this issue as well. Basically you have to make sure that the song title, artist, and album is exactly correct. If it's not, it wont match. Same with trying to get album artwork.

    I had a few CDs like that and they eventually matched.

    This isn't true. it does not use the tag info, it analyzes the song's wave form. You can have no tag information/completely made up tag info and have it correctly match. try it.

    it is true, however, for album art.

    Ok cool. I didn't know this. I thought it used the artist, song title, etc. like the album artwork does. So how come it wont match some songs?

    Yeah, I'm having the same problem. Some songs from an album that is available on iTunes will match while some tracks don't match and have to be uploaded. I think it's just because all the bugs have not been ironed out yet. I've only got this problem on a handful of tracks so I'm happy with the service so far.
