No music on device, but iTunes "devices" don't agree

    I've been playing around with my two devices, an iPod touch, and an iPad 2. I have signed up for iTunes Match, have done all the syncing with iCloud, and everything is working perfectly. However, once I download a song, or album from the cloud, listen to it, and then delete it from the device, either one (touch or pad), in iTunes, the device (touch or pad) still shows the songs under, "music".

    This is just a quirk, I'm sure, but still not sure why. It doesn't cause any problems with either of my devices. I can still download/re-download from the cloud, then delete when finished, and end up with no music on the device. But, the list of music in respective iTunes device grows. It's acting more like a history of music I've had on each device, even though the device is empty of music.

    Having the same problem here. I've tried unchecking songs and resyncing but that doesn't work. There isn't even have an option to delete if you right-click.
    Like the above poster said... I can still 'make it work' but the music tab under devices is more like a history of all songs that have ever been loaded onto the phone rather an a list of what is actualy there.

    I'm having the opposite problem at times..... itunes will say music is taking up more than normal space for music and if I uncheck music I will be left with music on my iPhone and iTunes will say no music on device.
