OS X 10.4.11
iTunes 7.6.2
iPod firmware 1.04
(restored to factory sets, even though its brand new)

Trying to get my new 2G Shuffle to Autofill/Sync with a smart playlist (of audio podcasts).

I have it set to "autofill" from a smart playlist (I call it "daily news") that has been syncing fine with my nano.
I plug it in, for a second iTunes says "syncing iPod," nothing transfers, then a second later it says "sync is complete"

I took it to an Apple Store, and the Genius says the Shuffle can't sync from a smart playlist, just regular playlists.

Can anyone confirm that? It sounded fishy, like he was trying to get me out the door.

Works fine. I just tried it with my "Top 50 Most Played" smart playlist.

Oh, great.
Apple tech note

Autofill does not work with podcasts.



Why the hell not?
