Somehow I have ended up with one Genius Mix. It is labeled "Classical Mix". It appeared without my intervention. Can someone tell me how to create additional Genius Mixes?

Genius mixes are created automatically when you Update Genius in the iTunes Store menu. Depending on the size of your library, you can get up to 12 mixes. If you have songs in other genres unchecked, that may affect your genius results.

Another thing to try is to turn off genius and then turn it on again.

    I just updated to iTunes 9 and would like to create a genius mix. However when I click on Genius it simply gives me suggestions to buy, not the menu that allows me to turn on geniue mixes. Help Please

    Please ignore my last email to you. It started working when I played a song. Thanks

    Jim -- thanks. I tried your suggestions, but I seem to be stuck with the one mix (the same one).

    I don't have a real extensive library of albums, but I do have a fair number of individual songs and few if any of these unchecked. The one mix I have is based on four albums and "others". I am not sure what "others" means, but I do have those four complete albums in the library. Maybe that's the key.

    Jim -- further discovery. Looks like Genius is smart indeed. It picks up single songs from other albums in this same Genius classical mix as the four complete albums. It probably just needs enough material to work with to create additional mixes.

    The newest version of iTunes is great, and the Genius Mixes are a very cool feature.
    How can I burn a Genius Mix to a CD or create a Playlist from a Genius Mix? I'd like to take one of these to work with me, but I can't figure out how.
