    Hey guys. Soooo I'm trying to sync my ipod with my account & I've downloaded an app that allows me to do that. But the app works by using the "Recently Played" smart-playlist (the one that comes with the ipod). But it looks like the "Recently Played" playlist only recognizes songs that have been played over a certain amount of time.

    I have like extreme music ADD & only listen to a song for like a minute or so before changing it. :eek:

    So I'm wondering if there is any way to change the amount of time required to add a song to that playlist. I hope there is a way to do this!!!

    Thanks in advance. :)

    Scrub the song (click center button on it while it's playing, you get a diamond-shaped dot in the track graphic, and then move to the right as if adjusting volume upwards) so you move the playpoint to within a few seconds of the end, click again and let it finish, when it bumps the playcount is when it updates the date last played.
