Including multiple genres in one smart playlist

Including multiple genres in one smart playlist 1

Q: Is it possible to create a genre style playlist with multiple genres?  Say I want one that has East Coast Rap, West Coast Rap, and Dirth South. I can’t do “Genre contains ‘Rap’”, because Dirth South genre doesn’t include the word “Rap.” This is just a more simplified version of what I am really trying to do, but I can’t even make this work. Any ideas?

To add a playlist condition after the default first entry, click the “+” button to the right of the Smart Playlist window. Then, you will be able to create a smart playlist like the following:

  2. Hi i have just bought a 3rd gen ipod off my friend which already contained around 1000 tracks of his. I did want to keep these tracks as well as add my own, but when i plugged it into my computer and opened my itunes it started to download my songs from my library but once it finished it had deleted the songs my friend had put on. Is there anyway of retrieving these tracks, do they go to a file anywhere in the hard drive. Thanks Chris
