    I just sold my 3gen Ipod to a friend of mine and bought the latest 20gb Ipod yesterday. I just want to know, that new "Shuffle Songs" feature in the main menu, it only shuffles your ENTIRE library or can u use it on playlists and albums? I'm aware of the original shuffle feature deep in the settings menu but I thought this new shuffle could shuffle a playlist I'm listenin to rather then my whole library of songs... pleeez help.

    ps - Since i just got this new one, are there any lil tips or hints u guys have about it that I haven't come across yer or that isn't in the book. thanx

    well I tried like I play a playlist, then i go to the menu as the songs are playin and click shuffle songs and then it stops the song i was listenin to and starts playin my whole library... I was just wonderin if it was possible wit this new feature to shuffle songs in a playlist/album rather then go menu hoppin for the other shuffle option.

    Make a submission to apple saying that you would like this feature. They probably forgot about just shuffling a playlist and went for the whole library. Tell them.

    Go to the main menu and select Settings, then Shuffle. By toggling the center button you can choose Off, Songs, or Albums. Try it, you'll like it.
