I have a first generation iPad 32GB WiFi model (MB293LL) running iOS 5.1.1.

I haven't used the Music app for some time; I generally listen to Pandora. However, I recently bought some music on iTunes and wanted to listen to it. I cannot get the Music app to run. It opens, but all I see is the basic app frame and controls - no content - and then it crashes. I've tried rebooting the iPad and it doesn't fix the issue.

I'd like a solution, or at least some further troubleshooting steps, that I can try other than "backup your data and reset the device". If anyone has any suggestions, I would sure appreciate it.

  • Have you tried to resync it with iTunes? Is it a jailbroken device? What about memory space left on it? May 19, 2012 at 10:38

I ended up having to delete all music and videos, disable Match, and then re-enable/sync from Match. Glad it was not more destructive.
