Transfer playlist from Itunes to Ipod Nano

Open iTunes and plug in your iPod. On the left sidebar there should be your iPod name (If you can't find the sidebar, go to iTunes menu bar, under View, select Show Sidebar), go to your iTunes playlist and drag the songs you want to your iPod. For all of the songs, go to your iPod music library, even if you don't have songs, and on the bottom there should be a blue-ish bar. There might be a box saying "Autofill from iTunes library" click that ONLY if you want ALL songs from your iTunes to your iPod.
If you want to know how to put video or DVD movie onto iPod, I think this step by step guide would help you.
Hope it helps. Feel free to email me if you need further help.

How do i create a playlist?

Creating a playlist differs from device to device. If for example you have an iPod, in itunes you can use File>New Playlist. You can drag tracks to the playlist and then sync your iPod. However if you have an MP3 player which supports drag and drop files onto the device, just create a folder called Playlist1 for example and add all the songs you would like in the playlist to the folder and play it as an album on the MP3 player. Hope this helps.

Make a new playlist?

To create an M3U playlist On your PC, create a new empty .txt document using word pad, type nothing but save the file as a .txt. go in to my computer -->> explore and find the file and rename the .txt document so it has an m3u file extension (example: my_list.m3u). Open the m3u file with wordpad, notepad, or a text editor. In the first line at top of the page type #EXTM3U. After the first line, start listing your music files, copy and paste the song names , (with extension ie .mp3). One music file name each line. Exit the text editor and save the m3u file once you are finished. Drag and drop the M3U playlist to the player's MUSIC folder, your done.

Downloaded songs from limewire to ipod but i cant find the songs on any playlists, albums, etc. The songs are MP3 format.

You need to drag the downloaded files INTO iTunes to get iTunes to catalog the files. Once they are in iTunes you can sync to your iPod.

How do you create a playlist?

Solution 1 In the Sansa drive in Windows Explorer select the songs that you want in the playlist. Right click and create playlist. You can do minimal playlist editing through the playlist file properties. Drag files to the references tab to add files.
There is a free playlist creator which creates playlists for each folder on the sansa player with one click. it is written in .NET and does not alter the music files (
There is also one written in Python that should work on both linux and Windows (

Solution 2 Try Musicmatch Jukebox or MediaMonkey. Both of those should be able to create a music library using only files from the device. Then sort them by artist and album, and delete them from the library, deleting the files as well. Transfer new files to the device as files (MSC USB mode on the player), not by syncing. You can create a new music library on the fly if you've made extensive changes. It doesn't take much time. Playlists should not contain drive letters or folder names, so edit them in Notepad, unless you have an app that makes them on the fly (suggestions?).
You can keep your main database in MediaMonkey, and open the Sansa device (see the plus and click on it). You'll be able to delete files from there. But if you double click on a song on the Sansa device, the wrong song will play. Dunno why, but that's what happens on my computer. But deleting files works.

Solution 3 Rename all your tracks so artist (look for batch renaming feature in your software. Add example of freeware editor?), album and song name is in the file name. That won't be visible in the player, but can aid administration if you use the player in MSC mode.

Solution 4 A how-to for using Windows Media Player and syncing to make playlists can be found here.
added by thatsRich 04-08-06 - I was having trouble sorting on my Sansa m250 using drag and drop with basic file management for mp3s. After seeing this article, I tried Windows Media Player (version 10) and found that perfect for the job. Since you can drag mis-sorted files in the left pane, they "sync" in proper order.

How do i download my own songs to the ipod

download the latest version of itunes from here
Then install the program.
Copy your music over to itunes either by copying your CD's or importing your music that you already have on your computer, you can do this by going to File>add folder to library or add file to library and go to where your music is and import. This will convert your music to be played in itunes and to be recognised by your ipod. Once you have done this, create a playlist of music that you want on your ipod. Go to File>new playlist. and rename the playlist to a name more suitable. Then select which songs you want on your ipod by righ-clicking the song and send to playlist, select the playlist that you just created. Once you have your playlist and are happy that you have all of the songs that you want, plug your ipod into the computer, itunes will pick the ipod up and load the necessary drivers for it. You will notice a little picture of your ipod on the left hand side of the screen, click on it then click on and update your ipod with your playlist.

I hope this helps

Playing music on my ipod classic

I'm pretty sure you can't do this. At least, I haven't figured out how.

One thing you can do is make a playlist in itunes and drag several albums into it. Then your ipod can play the whole playlist. But this requires some forethought, since you have to set up the playlist on your computer.

Another thing you can do is create an on-the-go playlist right on your ipod. Here's how:

1. from the main menu, click music, then albums
2. scroll to the first album you want in your playlist
3. press and hold the center button until the highlight blinks. don't go into the album; you're pressing and holding on the name of the album
4. scroll to the next album you want in the playlist
5. repeat step 3 until you've got all the albums in your playlist that you want

Now, go to the main menu and press music, then playlists. Scroll all the way to the bottom and notice that you have a new playlist called on-the-go. If you go into it, you'll see that it has all the songs from all the albums you selected.

If you scroll past all the songs, you also have options to clear or permanently save the playlist.

Now you can play all those albums by selecting the playlist.

Again, it requires some setup, but it does enable you to play multiple albums without interruption. A nice side-effect of this method is that you can choose the order, whereas an automatic next album feature would play them in alphabetical order.

(FYI, you can add individual songs to an on-the-go playlist as well.)

And one final option: If you go to Music - albums - ALL, you can press play and it'll play your entire iPod in order. You can scroll to any song you want to start on, but you can't really scroll to the exact album you want to start on -- unless you know where to find the first song on that album.

I know that all three options are available in the latest iPod software. If something's not working for you, you may need to update your iPod's software through iTunes.

Titles dissapearing in Mysel...

Your problem is MusicMatch. In the RCA manual, which is found on the CD or online (nothing is printed), it refers you to the MusicMatch software to learn how to create M3U playlists. Someone at RCA didn't talk to MusicMatch before making this claim. The MusicMatch software makes a mess of the files and never saves a playlist properly. You can devise a process using WinAmp which would probably work with Musicmatch, but I prefer WinAmp. Here's the process: Rip your CDs, download from the internet, and transfer the files to the RD2850 while the Lyra is connected as a hard drive. The files are stored in the /MUSIC directory. I suggest you organize your albums like this /MUSIC// If the artists you listen to have multiple albums, a structured approach is useful. The Lyra can sort the files by Artist and Album automatically if the tags are available, meaning a structured directory approach is unnecessary, but it makes it easier if you want to take the files off the Lyra in the future. Once the files are on the Lyra, use WinAmp to open those file FROM THE LYRA. This is important since the playlist will specify the relative path of the MP3 files and the Lyra expects the playlists in a directory other than where your music files are. With WinAmp open, press L to open the file selection dialog and navigate to the directory with the album, or music. Select the songs, press Open. Open the Playlist Editor (ALT+E) Arrange the songs Save the songs with the List Opts button found at the bottom right of the screen. Chose Save List. A dialog will open asking you where to save the list. Save the list in the /lyra_playlists directory from the root of the drive. Now, the Lyra needs to be updated. This is called "Profiling". The included software has a utility to do this from Windows, or you can do this from the Lyra itself. The manual states if you have over 2500 files, it is best to do this from Windows. But, after changing anything on the Lyra, you must "Profile" the device. You will now see your playlist in the Playlist menu item on the main screen.
