Hi. I have an 80GB ipod Classic that up until recently held just over 20,000 songs, all placed in various playlists. When I recently updated to the most recent itunes update the songs remained on the ipod but the playlists are only partially filled (only about 40% of the songs that were previously on the playlists). I think this may have to do with storage capacity but am curious why all 20,000 + songs are still available through the "Songs" feature but not through the "Playlists" feature. Any suggestions on how to remedy this problem would be appreciated.  Thanks! 

iPod classic, Windows 7

    If the Playlists are still complete in iTunes, try another Sync between the iPod and iTunes to see if that resolves the issue.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I have tried re-syncing several times with similar results.  The playlists update partially each time (sometimes 18%, sometimes 20%) but never the complete playlists (that are still complete on itunes).  I appreciate the reply though.

    I too have suddenly discovered that my MacBook Itunes suddenly won't synch any new playlist to my Ipod Classic, though I have plenty of storage space left.  I've tried trolling through all the technicalities in the discussion, but I'm lost. Can anyone help?

    I can't help you, but I'm seeing a similar thing happen. I just bought a used iPod classic 30GB, installed the latest version of iTunes and was attempting to sync some music last night. I dragged a folder containing multiple subfolders (maybe 15 or so) and a cumulative total of 300 songs.


    Out of the 300 that I added to the playlist, maybe 20 show up.


    I have the added bonus of not having a majority of the songs show up in All, not just the playlist I created for them.


    It shouldn't matter, but I'm using 64-bit Win8.
