syncing ITunes to IPod

by nbjordan / July 21, 2011 10:05 PM PDT

I have my Itunes library and IPod arranged in playlists by genre. However, recently, after I had added some new tunes to my playlists, I did a sync and when it was finished the songs on my Ipod were no longer in playlists.....just listed by song. How do I get my playlists back?

How about a resync?

Before you do, make sure that the selected playlists are still selected in the iPod prefs in iTunes

I have tried re-syncing several times, to no avail. And, yes, the playlists are still in tack in my library, as well as preferences. Is there anything else you think I could try?
