Thanks for the reply. This is all very new to me so some help would be really appreciated. Currently everything I have put in iTunes is sitting in the 'library' section so I'm a bit unsure about setting it up to do as you suggest.
Am I right in thinking therefore that I can set up a new Smart Playlist and drag all the fils currently in my library into there? Will they all still remain in my library also?
Assuming that's correct I can't figure out how to get my mini to sync with this playlist only and not the entire library.
Can you give me some tips?
