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.
