Situation: I have a 30 GB iPod video and a MacBook. The iPod does not automatically sync to my library nor do I want it to. Problem: I have a playlist with, let's say 10 songs on the iPod. In iTunes, when my iPod is plugged in, I sort this playlist by artist name from A to Z, naturally. I see that there is a column which lists the tracks from 1 to 10 and they are in the right order. However, on the iPod, if I go to said playlist, the tracks are ordered by date added. As in, the last song I added to the playlist is at the bottom of the list. So, they're not sorted by artist name, which sucks since I can't find things easily. Shouldn't the iPod playlist reflect the way I sorted it in iTunes? Yeah, I said 10 songs, but really, it's a lot more than that so it's very hard for me to find something I want from that playlist. No, it's not a smart playlist.
