What am I missing here? I have decided to clean out my iPad of excess items. I removed all music manually and will add music back onto the device via iTunes Match as I need/want something.

However, I synced my iPad with iTunes after the cleansing and iTunes is still showing 195 songs and 1.65GB of Audio. Anyone have any ideas what I need to do to confirm everything is off the iPad and there is actually storage available to use?

Thanks!

UPDATE: I just did it again after removing some apps and the audio is now down to .40 GB with 45 songs. Are the audio and apps linked somehow?

Also, I just noticed that my books number is fluctuating. I had 202 books and now I have 240, but I did not add anything. ???

Can't help with your books, though I suspect that you may have inadvertently "synched" some material. As far as audio is concerned, I suspect that apps that include background music, sounds, etc. may contribute to the total.

A reboot did not do anything.

I resolved the issue by doing the following:

1.) Turned off iTunes Match on the iPad
2.) Synched the iPad with iTunes
3.) Turned off sync Music in iTunes
4.) Synched iPad with iTunes
5.) Confirmed there was no music on the iPad
6.) Turned iTunes Match back on
7.) Confirmed there was no music added to the iPad

It was a PITA, but it worked.
