These steps are missing. Important or not?
11. Choose the Syncronization Options tab at the top of the dialogue.
Where it says, "Delete Tracks that aren't in the auto-syncronization list from the device expect folders" Check this box and add the following path in the corresponding blank:
This helps insure that Media Monkey will ignore in all respects any sound files that go with your iPod games (most of these come with lots of 'wav' or 'aiff' sound clips that you'd rather Media Monkey ignore in all respects. Usually it will anyway if the folders are properly hidden....but as you learn more about the iPod and hacking your way around in it...it can accidentally get exposed....so add that path...it'll help avoid problems.

Check iTunes style folders (this is optional actually, but I recommend it).
The "Device Configuration" SS you show is missing some options. iPod Classic only?

I think the min recommended version should be whenever MM 3.0.3 finally is released officially.

What skin did you use for the SSs?
I could change skins, eeewwww , and add the iPod plugin

I'm trying to sync an actual playlist that I created in MM... not the songs of the playlist (I sync all songs to my iPod), but the actual playlist itself. I buy music in sort of batches, and when I'm on the road sometimes I forget what I've bought in the past month, so I have a couple of playlists in MM called 'Feb 2008', 'Jun 2008', etc. However, on my MM (and in your guide on the MMWiki) the option 'copy playlists' is greyed out. Am I missing something here? Thanks for any help you (or anyone else) can offer.
... Leave “Manually manage music and videos” checked as below:
Check or uncheck the “Sync TV shows” and “Sync Videos” as you see fit.

SpaceWrangler wrote:I tried both "send to" and "auto-sync." Neither worked. In fact, MM has so screwed up my shuffle that I had to reset all the settings on it just to get it to work at all and then go back to itunes to get anything on the shuffle at all. The shuffle still isn't working correctly (no light indicating its on), but I can get it to play the music synced with itunes.
I hope someone knows a solution because otherwise it appears that although I will be able to organize my music better on my computer with MM, it won't be much use if I can't sync. I'll be a little disappointed I dropped the cash for the gold version.
Does it have something to do with the type of files in itunes? Can MM play but not sync AAC files (even if not protected? and what about protected AAC?)?
