OK, I don't know if it is something that I did, or just something I am not seeing here.
I got my iPod video yesterday and I loaded like 9 playlists onto it to start me off (about 4GB of files). I then went into my iPod prefs in iTunes and told it to Automatically Update Selected Playlists Only, and checked off about 4 of them. Did this for Music, Podcasts and Video because there are certain playlists I update and the rest I don't want to change, unless I do it manually.
I clicked OK and watched as iTunes deleted everything that was not set to Auto Update!! I was left with about 187mb of files out of 4GB!!!
Why would it do this? I want to manually control some playlists because when I update them I do not necessarily want those updates to go on my iPod.
I used to do this with my 1G iPod (Had 5 playlists and told it to Auto Update 3 of them) and it never deleted the rest on me. Is this a new iPod 'feature' or iTunes??
iThink, therefore iMac
You are coming to a sad realization: Cancel or Allow?
Chuck Norris was the one who took a bite out of the Apple Logo.
I also just got my iPod video on Saturday too.
I also noticed a similar thing with syncing photos. I uploaded the albums that I wanted and that worked great. I can view my pics.
I then reconnected the iPod and it had to go threw the whole process of syncing the albums again. I figured I don't want to sync everytime I connect so I turned off syncing. A warning popped up (guess I should have read it) maybe saying that photo would be removed.
I unplugged the iPod to view my changes and my albums are gone. WTF.
So I re-plug, re-sync albums and know my precious picture are back. I guess I will just have to auto sync my photos every time I connect. It's a nuisance but I can live with it. Am I wrong?
