    Default iTunes showing greyed out songs in my iPhone 5 Folder

    When I connect my iPhone 5 to iTunes and expand my device, then look at my music, I have about 100 songs that are duplicates and greyed out. Their size also says "Stream". Can't delete them. They do not show up on my iPhone, only my Mac. Any way to delete these because they take up about 1/2 GB of space which I could use.

    FYI, running the latest iTunes on my MBA, running ML and iPhone OS 6.02

    You're using iTunes Match?

    The ones that are greyed out and say Stream are the ones that are in Match and have not been downloaded to that device. They aren't taking up any room.

    Is there a way to delete them in Match? Like, turn Match off and then sync with iTunes and my cable? Or just don't worry about them?

    thanks,

    If you have a Match version and another one on your Mac, you could try deleting the non Match version. Took me days to clean up my music after starting to use Match, but I'm very happy knowing it's there.
