    I have a large i-tunes database on my PC containing around 42,000 songs, a handful of pop videos and some TV shows. Around 250 songs were purchased through itunes, but all the pop videos and TV shows were purchased through itunes. I understand that if I were to sign up to icloud match only 20,000 tracks. At the moment I haven't signed up for anything.

    By opening itunes on the ipad it already shows all my purchased content, but I cannot play any of it, apart from 30 second samples of the TV shows.

    Could someone therefore please help with the following questions:
    1. Is it possible to set it up so that I can only access the purchased content on my ipad and will this cost anything?
    2. If I were to pay the annual fee is it possible to set icloud match up so that I can choose which tracks are matched or does it simply take the tracks in alphabetical or chronological order from my itunes database?
    Thanks in advance for your help.
