I can't find the thread that was going a few days ago about syncing playcount and ratings between iTunes and iPod. I have my settings on manually managing songs and playlists. Does auto-update all songs and playlists give you an exact copy of all your iTunes music on your iPod? I don't want that, only select albums that I manually copy over but I would like to have the ratings / playcount auto-update. I don't mind having playlists auto-update. The main stickler is having all my music on my pod which I don't want. Can I get anywhere here?
