thanks for sharing :smiley:

Tried method 5,6 and 10. They work and thx.

Thanks for sharing. There is another way to fix Apple Music not downloading songs. That is to reset your Apple Music settings. You can try to open the automatic downloads and sync library buttons. Some third-party tools can also be helpful. Personally, I use Tunelf Audio Converter, which is also worth trying.

I also use a tool called AudFree Apple Music Converter & Audible Converter. I think the advantage it has over the tools introduced in the article is that it does not support the web version of Apple Music. Because I have used similar software before, the embedded web version will load very slowly and the app space is large.
