Unhappy My 'Recently added' playlist has been removed

Hi peeps,

I used to love the 'recently added' playlist on my iPod and iPad as it meant i could listen to just my new songs but a few months ago it removed itself from iTunes, how can i get it back? I don't want to manually create a playlist and put songs in it myself, the 'recently added' playlist did it automatically.
If i am correct i think it was removed after an iTunes update.

All help appreciated,
Thanks

Hello!

To recreate the playlist (which is known as a 'smart playlist'), go into iTunes on your computer. Click on 'file' on the top left, and then click on 'new smart playlist'. A box will then come up in which you can select certain criteria for. Just match it to the one in the picture (which is my 'recently added' playlist).

Hope this helped, let me know if not!

Not a problem! I assume you'd press the plus on the right hand side, then - from the first drop down list - select 'Media kind'. Second drop down list would be 'is', and the final list would be 'music'. Like in the picture.

If that doesn't work, change the second drop down list to 'is not' and the third list to 'movie'. Hopefully that would work for you!

Again, i'm no master at this i'm kinda just guessing, so if it doesn't work, or if anyone knows another way then let me know
