    Hey,

    This has been bugging me for a while, but never got a chance to ask on here until now.

    In my iTunes, my Top 25 Music is correct... but on my iPod Touch, in the Top 25 folder has everything different, including song i have never listened too.

    Any explanation? I've deleted it and recreated the folder... same thing happens.

    Thanks.

    Is it a smart playlist? If it is, all the songs in the playlist on your computer has to be on the iPod as well. Smart playlists pull in from the pool of what's available. If you have Song A, Song B and Song C as your top 1, 2 and 3 songs, respectively, but when you sync your iPod Song A is not put on there for whatever reason, then on your iPod, Song B will be number 1, Song B number 2, etc. I think this can happen if you allow unchecked songs to be in your playlist, but not sync to the iPod.

    The best thing to do is sync your Top 25 playlist and make sure you get an automatic sync in. I haven't used manual mode in so long I can't remember if it syncs playcounts and ratings over to the iPod when you hook it up to iTunes.
