As you can see all the lower bitrate tunes and songs have a icloud with a line through it. not allowed to join the cloud.

Just change your iTunes import settings to 256kbps and then right-click any files you want added to iCloud Music and click create new ACC file.
It'll trick iTunes into believing that the new file has better bitrate and add it for you.
Then just delete the old file and you're done.

its a good work around but then it would not be available to burn a CD for it for in the car.
I guess i need to force it into higher bitrate using a conversion app. More MB's for nothing but at least it will probaly work.
....if i could upload my library online. it will only upload a part of my library.

You'd still have the 256kbps version that you can burn to a CD. (Even though it wasn't truly 256kbps, but the same as before)

when burning will it convert to mp3 then? Because it only reads mp3's.
