Is there a way to shuffle a playlist while you are playing a song in it? I mean a combonation of buttons you can hit that will put you into a shuffle mode while you are in the Now Playing screen without having to go all the way back to the main menu?

This is probably really obvious or not possible and I'm the only one who wants to do something stupid like this, but I figured I'd ask anyways. :)

you mean sort of like the ipod shuffle does things? yea i would love that too. i donn't think you can do anything like that with the current ipod, but i hope to see something like it in a later revision

Ya something like that... I figured I could press the select button to scroll through the different sub menus (there is the main/volume menu, the position jog menu, and the rating menu) but that didn't work... would be nice if I could hit it one more time to get a standard/repeat/shuffle/shuffle and repeat option that's selectable with the scroll wheel

Hope they put it in a firmware update someday.

Make sure you submit that as feedback to Apple. They will never know unless you tell them :).

from the front menu screen scroll down to shuffle songs than use the middle button (if you have a click wheel iPod) to select shuffling capabilities if you want to reshuffle just click the select/center button until u hear a second click

Doesn't work on my mini. Plus that requires you are shuffling all the music on the iPod, so you can't just shuffle a playlist or all the tracks from a single artist etc. :(
