After my 120GB Classic iPod died, I purchased a new 160GB Classic last week. Now I can't seem to get rid of the Genius playlist which appears at the top of my normal playlists on my new iPod. I don't use Genius and have it disabled in iTunes (via iTunes > Prefs > General > uncheck Genius AND Store > Turn off Genius). I don't understand why it appears in my new iPod. It never did on my old one. It is a bit of an annoyance because I used to click right through to my first playlist to play the music I like, and now I have to scroll 1 down, which is not always easy for me because I have a small handicap.
click music > click playlists > click play = first playlist starts playing
click music > click playlists > Scroll 1 down (which is a hassle) > click play = first playlist starts playing
I hope there is a way to remove Genius from my playlists in my iPod but I can't see how. If it is not possible it seems to me that this is an issue that needs to be fixed. Maybe a software update can give a solution.
Apple, please consider this.
