I decided to update the music on my iPod this afternoon (which hasn’t seen that sort of update since I don’t know when). It wasn’t set up to automatically sync anything because I’m just that kind of control freak…actually, I had to set it up to manage everything manually at some point so that I could download audiobooks from the library’s lending service. No audiobooks currently checked out (also, I’m using my phone and the app for this now), so it seemed like a good time to add some new stuff.
As it turns out, it’s going to be all new stuff, because I lost all of my playlists (not realizing that they weren’t stored in this version of iTunes). I had a tiny ARGH moment and then shrugged and decided, well, I’ve been listening to most of those songs for the past 2 years, so really, it was time to freshen up. The tracks/music are all still in my library somewhere, but I have no idea what the exact lists were. Not terrible, but a slight setback in my plan to have some music on while I whip up some soup in the kitchen.
I hate iTunes.
