    You can't add playlists direct to the ipod. You have to add playlists in the playlist section of iTunes, then sync the playlists to the iPod

    ...Unless you set your iPod to be manually managed rather than automatically sync with your library.

    Mate, I'm really confused. Are you wanting to get playlists onto or off of your iPod? :eek:

    What sort of playlists are they? If they're shared playlists form another machine or device, then you won't be able to add them to your iPod.
