    If it works like the first-generation shuffles, there is no "turning off" of Autofill...you just don't click the Autofill button. Instead you drag specific songs or playlists onto the shuffle in the source list.

    From the iTunes help menu:

    which version of iTunes are you using?

    In iTunes 7.0.2 you need to select a playlist or the library to autofill your iPod.

    By default all of the songs in your Library are checked, so the easier way to select the songs that you want to load to your shuffle is to create a playlist and then select to autofill from there. These options are on the "options" tab.

    In the "contents" tab you will find other options. I recommend selecting the "enable sound check"

    Other options truly optional

    Supposedly it adjusts all of the songs to play at the same relative volume so that you don't get a loud song followed by a quiet song based on how they were encoded.

    A lot of people don't like it because it doesn't always work well and can distort the sound. But it can come in handy.

    Adjusts your track volumes so that they are all equal.

    Edit: Bleugh.. :p
