View Full Version : Shuffle 3g won't update itunes when synced

My old 2g shuffle was capable of updating play count/last played and adding songs to the recently played playlist when synced to my itunes.

Seems my new 3g shuffle can't do this.

I remember the trick with the 2g was to make sure it was switched off first before connecting/syncing, but I've tried all sorts of different combo's with the 3g and nothing will make it update song stats in itunes.

How can I make it update my itunes?

Ok, cool, I figured it out:-) Just in case anyone ever has the same problem, here's a quick rundown:

Basically it's the same problem you can get with 2nd gen shuffles if you're manually managing songs. So I just unticked manually manage music in the device summary and got the shuffle to sync music from a playlist I created/dumped all my songs into.
