Suddenly today after updating to iTunes 7, my play count stopped updating after a song would finish. It would just go on to the next song but the play count stayed the same and the last played said the old date. I don't know if anyone else is having this problem lately and I don't even know if it's related to iTunes 7, because it was working properly on iTunes 7 for a while. However, if I listen to a few songs on my iPod like normal, and then connect, the song's play count and last played gets updated on the iTunes, but not if I actually play the song on the iTunes. Any solutions?

    I've seen something similar.

    I have a smart playlist set up for the top 25 least played songs, by playcount. Normally after a song plays, it disappears from the list and a new one pops in.

    I saw one track which played, the last play date updated, the play count did not, and it stayed in the list. This happened to the same track at least twice before I noticed. However, the next time I started playing the list, it behaved correctly. The rest of the tracks behaved correctly throughout.

    I have no idea what the pattern is for the malfunction, except that it didn't happen before the iTunes 7 update. Other tracks from the same album did not have the same problem. All of the tracks were imported in iTunes 6. All this is on my computer, no iPod involved.

    Just so you know you're not the only one, I've got the same thing going on. I like itunes 7 but it seems to have a few bugs that still need to be worked out.

    Addition to the above:
    I was responding to the first post, not the one concerning playlists.

    For what it's worth, I have not seen the playcount not work since the one instance in my earlier post. Since then I repaired permissions, and it changed permissions on a few iTunes application files.
