    For years, our family shared music on Itunes Match using the same email address - everyone logged in as

    Now with apple music, and family sharing we made the switch and want to sign in with our personal emails.

    However, when you go to turn on icloud music, all the MPEG, AAC Audio, or AAC Matched files will turn to Apple Music AAC Audio. Which is a problem, since we'd have to maintain the apple music service to play any music we currently own.

    I am using Itunes 12.2.1

    FWIW, we tried creating an empty library and importing music files - no luck.

    thanks for any help.

    When you move from iTunes Match to iCloud Music Library in Apple Music, your initial Matched files do not automatically change to Apple Music files.

    All Matched audio are only downloaded as Apple Music when you re-download it again, i.e. just hold on to the original files. Also Uploaded tracks do not have DRM applied.

    Looks like I left out some information. If I just turn on iCloud music with he existing library, I get a 4010 error.
    Unfortunately the library is large enough I can't figure out the files that might cause the problems.

    If I start a new library and import the files - i get the same 4010 problem once I start iCloud music.
    If I don't import, the files list AAC or Matched, but when downloaded they turn to Apple Music AAC.
