iTunes organization and iPod Auto-Sync!

A great tip submitted by Kev: iTunes organization and iPod Auto-Sync! Instead of checking or unchecking every song one by one in iTunes or in an iTunes playlist, you can hold "Command" and click on one checkbox. It will automatically check or uncheck every song in that playlist. This is particularly useful if you auto-sync your iPod. The auto-sync feature will choose among the songs that are checked. You could either uncheck all the songs with this, create a playlist that you want the auto-sync feature to choose from and check every song in that playlist with the "Command-click". The opposite can also be done where you create a playlist of songs that you don't want on your iPod and uncheck them all with this feature. Thanks for the great tip Kev!

I think it's easier just to make a playlist specifically for iPod. (I have one aptly named "iPod" which auto-syncs whenever I connect it to mac. :)

Does anyone know of a way to keep songs on your ipod that won't get played during a shuffle? I would like to have a folder/playlist on the ipod that only plays when i specifically go looking for it...any ideas?

Jay, go to 'Get Info' for the songs you don't want to play during a shuffle (ctrl click or under the 'File' menu). Then go to the 'Options' tab and check the box for 'Skip when shuffling'

If you select multiple items and then go to 'Get Info', you can still check the 'Skip when shuffling box'
