Sync My Rating and Play count from iPod to iTunes
My 4GB Nano is on 'Manually manager songs and photos' and everything seems to work fine *except* ratings and play counts aren't syncing up.
Photos and podcasts are syncing fine and I've clicked 'Update' to no avail.
I am missing something? I've done a decent amount of research and I've poked around iTunes and the iPod and I can't see anything that isn't properly configured.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Ratings are a little thing, but they're alot of fun and help make really killer Smart Playlists!

Most of the stuff on my Nano is from smart playlists based on rating and playcounts. I haven't actually checked if the playcounts and ratings (sometimes i change them) are syncing ok, but i assume they are. They do with the big iPod.
Have you downloaded the latest version of iTunes? An update has been released today.

Thanks for the reply.
If I put the ipod on auto manager then it picks all these random songs from my 20+gig collection. It's not really the way I want to use my nano.
What can I do? Why can't it sync the details, that seems odd since it updates podcasts. I mean, it's just a bit of XML isn't it?
Is there something I can do to perform a "bacth sync" ? Maybe some trick I can do once every couple of days to things in check?
Or some other way to manager the nano and still keep the songs I want?

Well ... I think I found the work-around.
--NOTE-- You _have_ to have your iPod set to "auto-manage" in order to get stuff like Ratings to sync between the iPod and the computer. This is by design I assume (though it makes the "manaully manage" option *much* weaker in my mind).
So, I made a playlist called Nano, treated that as if it were the mounted Nano drive and "manually" managed the songs in that collection. Picking and choosing songs and albums until I filled up about 4 gigs.
Plugged in iPod and viola! Play counts, last played, ratings ... all good! Finally!
Everything syncs and I still get to "manually manage" all 4 gigs on my Nano.
