    Ok sooo I'm confused about how to manage my iPod with the new iTunes.

    My problem is that I have about 60 playlists in my iTunes and I only want to add about 5 of them to the iPod. Now, when I select only the playlists that I want to transfer, the music on those playlists is the only one that gets transfered to my iPod, and that would be about 1% or less of my library. If I select to add all the music and playlists, all the playlists get transferred.

    The last option I tried was to manage it manually, and it worked fine for the playlists, except now all the unchecked items got transferred too, and it really is a pain to start deleting them one at a time each when you are uploading 40 gigs of music and want to leave out (or unchecked) about 2 gigs of those 40.

    So, does anyone have a more practical way of doing this?

    Thanks a lot.

    Make another Smart Playlist that can sync with your iPod and have it contain all the music from the rest of your playlists or from wherever you want. I do this with a playlist named after my iPod and it contains all the random extra music I want to appear on it. :)
