My apologies if this has been raised elsewhere but I could not find it on a search. I have an iMac, MacBook, iPhone and iPad (iPad 1). I have opened iTunes Match and upload my music library into iCloud (it took 4 days!). When I first synced the iPad after this and had the setting for music to come from iCloud it cleared out the music I already had stored on the iPad leaving me to have to download music I want to listen to via iCloud all the time. That is no good to me and I guess most others. If I have no WiFi access for example, in a bad spot, or on an airplane I want the music on the iPad as I cannot connect to iCloud. I switched off the setting that tells it music is in iCloud and then synced the iPad again with my iMac. I selected the special playlist I have for the iPad and it appeared to sync all music ok - about 28gb. However when I go into music on the iPad I still have to download it all from iCloud even though it was meant to have been loaded on to the iPad. What is more confusing is that for one or two albums I do not have to do this, even though they are in iCloud, but for most to play a track it needs to download. Yet looking at the volume of data stored on the iPad it appears the tracks must be on it after the sync. For some reason, even though the iPad is not set to get its music from iCloud it over rides this and says I have to. This is no good if I have no wireless connection. There may be an easy answer I am missing. Anybody else had this problem? All I want is to have some music physically stored on the iPad and accessible when I do not have a wireless connection.
