 Smartplaylist gone?

Questions
redline
 
Hi

Recently I have 'Restored' my iPod Classic 80GB to its original settings using the iTunes 7.5.

After that I could not get my Smartplaylist appear on my ipod anymore. Also, I am not able to add songs to 'On-the-Go' playlist which is the only playlist available now.

Please anyone help me.

Thanks much in advance.

 Removing Duplicates from Smart Playlists

Questions
redline
 
I have a bunch of Smart Playlists that are based on the Genre - Sub-Genre (Using Grouping) and the Rating. The issue that I have is that I am getting duplicates of the same song because they are on different Albums. A common example would be a song that I got with the original CD and then the same song with a Greatest Hits CD. They both have the same rating, so in the smart playlist, they show up twice.

Is there a way to remove the duplication? Help is appreciated.

Thanks.

 upload podcast from another computer without losing music on iPod?

Questions
redline
 
Hi all,

I want to put an iPod version of Fight Club on my 5G iPod, but it's on a mate's computer. He thinks i should switch my iPod to manual management next, but I'm afraid that will empty my iPod, cos I think I did it once and it happened.

The only solution I have is to put the Fight Club file as data on my own computer and then sync it on my own comp.

Same question regarding just songs. Is there anyway to sync just some songs from another person's comp and leave ur current iPod tracks intact?

 Transfer play counts etc

Questions
redline
 
I was having problems with the mp3s of Muse I've had for years. The iPod would often chop of the end of the song. So I got the CDs and re-imported the tracks into iTunes, better quality too and the format mr ipod likes :D

But, of course, the newly imported tracks are not rated and don't have play and skip counts etc. Is there a way to transfer info from old tracks to new tracks?

 Top top?

Questions
redline
 
I have a "Top 3" smart playlist that has the 3 most played songs in my ipod. I was wondering how to create another smart playlist that storages everything that has been on the "Top 3" playlist.

 Smart playlists on iPhone

Questions
redline
 
I have an iPhone, and I've noticed that my smart playlists do not update until I sync. For example, I have an "unrated" playlist, and songs that I rate on the iPhone do not disappear from this playlist after being assigned a rating on the iPhone. Is there a way to change this?

 Play Count/Skip Count Ratio?

Questions
redline
 
I've been wishing I could create a smart playlist that requires a minimum ratio of "play counts" to "skips counts." The advantage for me would be that this calculation would allow in both new music and old favorites. I'm on a PC and haven't figured out how to do any scripting yet. I read a recent post on building smartplaylists off other smartplaylists, but still don't see how that could make my list focus on *ratios* as opposed to absolute play counts and skip counts.
Thanks!!
Garth

 Mix Playlist not working?

Questions
redline
 
I've tried to create a playlist that gives a mix (I wanted about 30 tracks) of high rated tracks that I hadn't heard for awhile, some lower rated tracks, and just a few of my favourites. I attempted to do this as follows:

zMixA:
*Match ALL
*Last played is not in the last 1 month
*My rating is greater than ***
*Podcast is false
*Limit to 10 items selected by random

zMixB:
*Match ALL
*Last played is not in the last 3 weeks
*My Rating is less than ****
*Podcast is false
*Limit to 15 items selected by random

zMixC:
*Match ALL
*Playlist is Current Most Popular (another playlist I have)
*Podcast is false
*Limit to 5 items selected by random

Then the master playlist (which was the one I would listen to):

MIX:
*Match ANY
*Playlist is MixA
*Playlist is MixB
*Playlist is MixC
*Playlist is not Classical (another playlist I have)
*Podcast is false
*Limit to 30 items selected by random


At first this seemed to give me a good mix, with the desired ratio of each 10-15-5 for a total of 30.

BUT NOW, the MIX playlist is filling with tracks that can't even be found in any of the zMix lists. It no longer has a ratio either, with most of the MIX being unrated music. Also, it is putting in classical and podcasts.

How do I fix this?

 Stop iPod after song

Questions
redline
 
Has anyone solved this problem - how to make iPod STOP after playing just one song ? Some say set entries in a playlist to "skip when shuffling" and run the iPod with "Shuffle setting enabled", but (at least the Classic) iPod has no such setting - just "shuffle songs" which merely plays all the songs on the iPod as usual before you can even get to a playlist.

A cure to this problem would be a big help to many users.

 shuffle podcasts?

Questions
redline
 
Hi--I'm new to this forum. I have a lot of NPR non-music podcasts. Whenever I play one in iTunes, it stops when it's over. I would like to go to the next one--preferably shuffling randomly. I thought the problem would be solved when i created a SPL of the podcasts I wanted to shuffle, but I still have to select one from the list, either on the computer or on the iPod, and then it just stops. I would like to automatically play another, especially when I'm driving! Any suggestions? Thanks!
