    Hi all,

    After syncing my iPod to iTunes on my MacBook, I realized something, all my playlists were gone. I synced again hoping it was not some mistake, but sure enough still gone. I restored, synced, nope, still not there. After googling there appears to be a problem with smart playlists, but some of my playlists are just regular old playlists - which don't sync either. I'm not sure if I'm crazy or what...

    Edit:
    Ok, after a second restore (still no avail), I got tired and just wanted to listen to music (the ole' fashioned way) on my ipod. When I want to listen to a certain song, it sits, skips over that song and the next 3-4 after it, and plays the next one fine. It happens to some songs I've tested, but no clue why.

    Anyone know a fix or something?

    Thanks
    -Tanner

    When you say, the playlists are gone, you mean they don't appear on the iPod, right? You can see them inside iTunes. Can you see them in the sync-window (as below)?

    Yeah, I can see them in iTunes fine. When I expand my iPod in iTunes they even show there, but all I see on my iPod (using my iPod) is a blank playlist (with a blank name) and the On-The-Go.

    Thanks

    In your situation, I'd restore the iPod. Maybe the problem will just vanish.
