I seem to have deleted my Purchased Music Playlist (oops). Is there anyway to get that back???
The songs should still be in your library. Just create a new playlist called Purchased Music and drag them there.
But how do I make it automaticly add downloaded music?
Okay, I purchased a new song and it brought it back. It didn't, however, add my old purchased music. I guess I can do that manually.
I also tried making a smart playlist where kind = Protected ACC audio file, but it didn't work.
Wait until you purchase another song, and the playlist will be added again. Then drag your previously bought items into the playlist.
Edit: Seems like you did it yourself...
You may also be able to recreate this by re-installing iTunes. If that doesn't work or you don't wanna, here is the answer to your question, assuming you didn't protect your non-purchased music:
- Create a new *smart* playlist
- Under Match the following, select "Kind" in the first box and put "Protected" (no quotes) in the type-in box
- Make sure Live Updating is checked and the other two boxes below the Match conditions are not checked
This playlist should match your purchased music playlist.
And just for the record, I'm astounded you have the option to clear this playlist (since it has a different icon than a normal playlist or smart playlist, it must not completely be identical to a user playlist) and *slaps hand* shame on you for falling for it.
Good luck and happy iTuning!
Oops, sorry, didn't see your second post before i replied. But I think the Kind field is a pattern match, so if you put in just "Protected" and not "Protected AAC audio file" it will work. (BTW its AAC not ACC).
I got it working! My probably was putting ACC and not AAC, but Kind did have to be "Protected AAC audio file."
Thanks for the help guys!
if you just use the word "Protected" as kind it will also work
