My iPod Classic is great, but man, iTunes sucks! On my iPod I rate songs low that I want to remove. Then I sync it with iTunes many times. Then much later I get around to removing the low rated songs from my iPod. Then I go to my iTunes library to see which new songs I want to add to my iPod, but none of the ratings got synced from my iPod to iTunes! So I don't know which songs I've already chosen to not keep on my iPod! That sucks! Looking at my iPod through iTunes right now I see plenty of rated songs. I hit iTunes' Synchronize button for my iPod, it says it's syncing, all my old podcasts are removed and new ones are loaded. Then I go to my iTunes library and none of the song ratings got synced! WTF! Just because I want to be in control of which songs I have on my iPod instead of having iTunes randomly do it for me through their so-called mis-named "sync music" option, does that mean I can't sync any meta-data I've added to my songs? That's so lame! This is just one of the many major flaws that iTunes has which makes using iTunes very annoying and limiting to me. Why does iTunes suck so hard?!? </rant> If anyone knows a way that I can set iTunes to sync song meta data but let me manually manage which songs are on my iPod, then please tell me how.
