After facing my technaphobe fears I've bought an ipod. Its brill and surprisingly easy for me to get my head around. Its a 4th generation 20MB one if that makes any difference to anything. I have 3 things though that I can't find any help for - I've searched here too - I feel v.out of my depth on this forum so don't even know if I'm searching under the correct keywords! I've tried to get answers to these 3 Q's in the help section of itunes as well, but no joy. I hope users of ipods can help... 1) I've created several different playlists. Can I shuffle songs within the playlists when i listen to them on my ipod or do they only play in the order they were downloaded? 2) When I add songs to the main libary - is there a way i can see at a glance if I've already added them to a playlist without checking each playlist in turn to see if the song is there as well as being in the main libary? 3) I downloaded the itunes CD onto my laptop and have been importing songs from CDs. I do not have internet access at home, so I've also downloaded the itunes CD onto my PC at work so song titles are automatically added when I import from CDs. I am not downloading anything from my work PC onto my ipod (only doing that with songs on my laptop). In the future will i be able to 'copy' my work PC itunes onto a disc and add it to my laptop itunes, so the 2 will merge and I'll have all my songs together? Hope someone can advise me! Thanks in advance.
