Playlists wont sync
« on: July 07, 2016, 09:22:12 AM »
Device: iPod 2G (MB)
Computer: Mac OSX 10.11.5


I have just installed Whited00r, but the playlists from iTunes on my Mac won't sync over. When I connect my iPod to the Mac, iTunes (on the Mac) shows that the playlists are on the device, but when I open the device they are not there.

This guy had the same problem and managed to solve it, but sadly he did not post a fix.

Thanks for any help.

Thanks also for creating the excellent Whited00r. I can't believe how much faster my iPod is. It's like getting a brand new device!

Is the problem that Playlists (especially Smart Playlists with Podcasts) don't work on iOS 3.1?

I really don't know, but last time i synced my music and vids with iTunes i have done these things and it worked: 1. imported the files in to my iTunes library 2. Set the proper name, artwork and lyrics 3. Go to your ipod in itunes and click on music and sync all.
Wait while they are syncing and then check if they are in the device and then put them manually in new playlists. I didn't tried with podcast cause i'm downloading them directly from my ipod's iTunes. If this don't work try importing with iTools, it does the job done ;)

Hmm... When I go into iTunes, the playlists are visible on the iPod from iTunes. But then they aren't on the actual device.

I think iTools is Windows only.

Thanks for your help!
