    Anyone notice you cannot activate automatic update of videos for the 5th Gen iPod? Is this known to everyone but me, and what is the reason or workaround??

    Works fine for me. iTunes 6.0.1, OS X 10.4.3, 5G White 30 GB iPod.

    Is your iPod set to automatically update the music files??
    Anyone else having problems with this?

    My iPod is also set to automatically update music files. Literally as I've been typing this I had my iPod syncing with iTunes and it did automatically transfer a few video files that I added to iTunes a few minutes ago.

    Maybe if I enable automatic music updating it will work...seems kinda weird though that the other features (photo, contacts etc.) will load automatically though. I think I will call Apple.

    If your iPod is set to automatic update music, then the video section is active.
    If you don't enable automatic music update you have to manually update your videos.

    I think this sucks. I don't always want all my music updated but would definitely like my videos to update automatically. Anyone think this can be fixed with a software update?

    I would like the opposite as I have my playlists set for music but not video...
