After thumbing through my iPOD with frusteration while running, I've noticed I have more "car songs" than "workout" songs. So how do I organize my tunes? I know there is or has to be a way to divide them up into folders or something, but alas I have no idea how to do this. I have the videa iPOD, 30gb. I hate trying to run to something calming when I just want to run.

Thanks in advance!

I think the best way for you to "organize" your tunes, would be to put certain songs in playlists. This is easily done within itunes in a column on the lefthand side- the same column where 'Library', 'Podcasts', and 'Videos' are all listed. If you click the big Plus Sign button below this column you should notice a new playlist appear on the bottom of the described column. It will, by default, be called 'untitled playlist'. You may rename it whatever you wish (For example- "running tunes") and then drag and drop as many songs as you wish into that playlist. Update your ipod, and under the playlist section in 'Music' on your ipod, only those chosen songs will be play. Hope this is what you are asking...

There's a Category setting in iTunes which you can enable by right clicking on the titles of the fields and checking on Category. You can then designate 'car' 'sweat' 'mow' 'lurve' etc.

This is assuming you're an organised person. Otherwise I'd just use playlists like everyone else says.

You mean "Grouping" right? "Category" is a Podcast only field obtained from RSS. "Grouping" is used on iTMS to group smaller parts of Classical works into larger works.
