Sync these 2 playlists to your nano.

P.S. Cannot imagine why you mess around with keeping thing is specific operating system folders - completely unnecessary.
I can't remember why I don't have my music in the iTunes folder. I've had an iPod since the first model, and that's how I set it up for a specific reason/s. But I can't remember why anymore haha. But I did have a good reason. It had something to do with me not wanting iTunes to manage my songs. Not sure the reason.

Thanks for the help. That's a start, I'm looking for a method to prevent the creation of a manual list.

I may do it by ratings, rate all the techno a star, and create a smart list to only have music w/out a rating. That requires me to rate things. There must be an easier way. We'll see.
