    if you have auto syncing on, how does it keep up with play count?

    in other words, if you listen to a song on your ipod, then listen to the same song on your computer, will it add both to the play count when you sync the ipod and computer?

    so it will add both the times that you play the songs on your ipod and on your computer?

    Yes. With auto-sync on, your iPod is a portable version of your iTunes library. Whatever you do to the music on your iPod is carried over to iTunes and vice versa.

    i am not sure. but if it was autosync, then there would be no reason to play off of the ipod, cuz the files would already be on the computer

    Nope. Just disk mode or manual sync (essentially the same in that respect)... but why would you want to?

    Fair enough... just put it in manual mode when you want to listen, and then switch it back?

    Or get iPodDisk and pull off the files you want to listen to:

    go to view->view options and click play count.

    it isn't impoartant but it's nice to see what songs i listen to the most. im the same guy who will calculate the mpg for each fill up on my car lol

    On my iPod

    Is there a way to see my play count on my actual iPod? I've looked everywhere but I can't seem to find it.
