Nano Playlists

    I have an iPod Nano 4GB, and obviously I have had to be selective in the music that I have on it, as I obviously cannot have my whole music collection on it.

    My problem is that I can't work out how to create playlists specifically for my Nano. I fact I don't know how to transfer my playlists for iTunes to my Nano.

    I update my Nano by automatically synchronising my Nano with one of my iTunes playlists. But how do I use playlists on my Nano itself (without having to create them on the Nano itslef - cos that takes ages)


    PS Also, does anyone know why iTMS are not selling the greatest music video of all time - Sledgehammer? Makes a mockery of their music videao service.

    make a smart playlist and drag it into the nano (while its sync'd). you can edit the smart playlist also. they're those purple "files" underneath your library with a black (looks like a) sprocket.

    as for the music store, they only carry "mainstream" stuff. idk what's considered mainstream in europe, but yeah i've never have found my favorites on iTMS.

    Sort of off topic but--

    Even 'mainstream' artists aren't to be found on iTMS; such as Radiohead. Makes me sad because I really only want a couple of their songs (from one album)... :eek:

    Thanks for the reply, but it didn't work! Maybe I'm being really dense here, but when I drag smart playlists over the iPod in iTunes, iTunes won't let me, and the playlist 'bounces back'?!?!?

    Please help me somebody, cos walking aroun having to constantly mess with my nano is really p***ing me Off!
