Thanks Keith, sometimes I have my brain set to the old system and forget that first letter is a defacto search/go to method in a source list.

I found the podcast I mentioned that did a good job of describing the basics of creating and populating a playlist in iTunes, but I can't find the source website. If anyone wants it, email me off list and I'll send it directly.

Cheers,

Ian

You can just type the first few letters of the name of your play list, works for me.

Looks like nobody else has jumped in, so I'll give it a go with fairly limited experience, but maybe just enough to cover the situation.

First of all, any chance you've recently come to Mac from the Windows environment? Maybe with Winamp experience? That's what got me and had me playing the Makarena accidentally at an Irish party. In Winamp you can select a directory in Windws Explorer then let Winamp play the folder contents.

In Mac and iTunes things are different. Things are driven by playlists rather than folders. You seem to be able to play individual songs from a Finder window, but when the song is over it reverts to the current playlist in iTunes.

At the top of your source list in iTunes, you have the music source, classified as a library playlist. Stop interacting with your source list, VO right arrow to the music table, interact with it, and you've got a table of all the audio files on your computer no matter what folder they are in., VO arrow around through the categories, press space bar on your selection to make it play. If you've made a playlist, VO shift M on a selection will bring up a context menu with a sub menu for add to playlist.

Your playlists are down at the bottom of your source list. If anyone knows how to move them up in the list I'd love to hear about it, so you don't have to scroll down through everything in your source list to get to them.

I found a podcast from some organization in Australie that did a job explaning this stuff. If I can find the link again I'll post it to you.

Cheers,

Ian

Hi all,

Grant you I still have not mastered useing itunes, it is not an easy program, at least for me. I have a folder wkith some 150 songs and I can not get itunes to play through the list, it will play 5 or so songs then go back and play the same ones again. I have tried sellecting all and it still does the same. Somewhere I am missing a setting or something, can someone tell me how to make it play the complete list. Kind of dumb on my part but I just have not found the command. Thanks all. Don
