    I'm sure this question has been addressed before, but I can't really find a specific answer to it here. When I first got my ipod, I disabled auto sync, because I had about 500 songs in itunes, but only wanted ~300 on my ipod. So I created playlists ON THE IPOD, manually dragged in the songs from my itunes library, and renamed the songs to my liking ON THE IPOD. (I'm really anal with my naming conventions). Is there any way that I can get these playlists and correctly named songs back on itunes? I just got the iphone, and i'd like to have the iphone exactly mirror what's on my ipod, without manually re-creating dozens of playlists and renaming over 300 songs. (I listen to mostly classical/orchestral, so some of the song titles can be very cryptic when first downloaded without modifying them first). Is there any way to get these playlists and song titles off my ipod, and back into itunes?

    Similar question re: exporting playlists from ipod

    I just moved my library to a new computer and reloaded Itunes. The only option to synch my ipod with the library (which the ipod sees as new) seems to be to erase the ipod and reload with the new library. I'd be OK with this except I've already lost all my playlists once before.

    Unfortunately my playlists are on ipod as they were lost from my old version of itunes (forgot to export them)

    Any tricks on how to simply export my playlists from the ipod ? Clearly itunes is disallowing the export right now.
