    This request does not pertain to the iPhone specifically, and I have already submitted some sort of feedback to Apple. Actually, I probably should have revised my feedback.

    I have iTunes set to let me manually manage the music and videos on my iPhone. As a lot of you might know, there's an autofill option. What I want to do is tell iTunes to load every piece of music except for my holiday music. I still want that music in my library. As a workaround, I can have iTunes autofill my iPhone with everything in my Music library, then take out the music that I don't want on my iPhone.

    Use smart playlists and then choose "sync selected playlists" instead of manual management.

    Just to clarify previous poster's reply.... Create a smart playlist that the only conditions are the "album" "is not" "fill in here".

    If you have many albums that you don't want synced, make a regular playlist and drag all those albums into that playlist, and entitle the playlist "NOT".

    Then create a smart playlist with one condition, that "playlist" "is not" "NOT".

    This, sorry I wasn't more specific-fighting a cold here and eyes still a bit out of focus from my bi-yearly eye exam, where the doc puts drops to dilate the pupils. :eek:
