I have on my iPhone 4 a playlist called (relaxing tunes). I was wondering if anybody knows a way that I could copy this playlist and put it on to my iPad.

Thanks in advance.

Windows Vista, iPhone 4 16 GB

    Launch iTunes. Make sure the playlist is in your iTunes library.

    Make sure you see iPad under Devices on the left side of the iTunes window. Now select the Music tab from the menu.

    Select the button next to: Selected playlists, artists, albums, and genres

    Now click the Sync button bottom right side of the iTunes window.

    Thanks Carolyn.

    I should have added more information, but I created a separate iTunes library for my iPad. So I only see the 'relaxing tunes' playlist when I am using the iTunes library that my iPhone uses. I select the desired library by holding down the SHIFT key whilst iTunes is loading up, depending on which device I am wanting to sync, has we have a iPhone, iPod, iPad, so we find it easier to avoid any possible unwanted deletion of things on the other devices to have a separate iTunes library for all the devices.

    I followed your instructions, but I do not see the 'relaxing tunes playlist' on the screen that appears when I have clicked on the, 'Selected playlists, artists, albums, and genres' button.

    Instead of using different libraries, use one library and create a playlist for each device and sync only that playlist to each device.

    Thanks for the help/suggestion, but I find it easier to just use a separate library file for each device, experience from doing other methods has lead to me altering something (that I didn't want to do) on the other device. Anyway's, I have everything set up now on the iPad apart from the playlist in question. Surely they must be a way to copy a playlist from one device or iTunes library to another device?
