    Hi there,

    I have some playlists that I've synced through iTunes. iTunes shows them as having synced just fine, but a few of them are simply not showing up on the iPhone. I'm clueless at to why. I've tried removing them and synching again - no luck. What the hell?

    Someone shed some light please!

    iPhone 3G
    iPhone OS 3.1.3

    I know this isn't really helping - but google it. I had the same problem, and I had to drill into the settings of my smart playlist to get it to sync. I think it had something to do with adding a parameter of "music".... I can look into it a little more tomorrow if you don't have it solved by then.

    Ramesh, I actually did google it before posting, but I'll look into the smart playlist & music parameter stuff. One of the playlists that's not synching is a smart playlist, the other is just a normal playlist.

    I'll look at my settings for one right now.

    I had to make "Media kind is music" for mine to work.

    Ramesh, don't worry about the Google comment :).

    The "Media kind" option did the trick! Thanks for the quick help!

    Check and see if they have checkboxes in iTunes, or that you have unchecked "Sync only checked songs and videos"

    Try removing the playlist from the iPhone entirely (uncheck it from the iTunes -> iPhone -> Music tab), and then re-adding it. Or selecting to add your entire music library, if you have enough space.

    Come to think of it, if you don't have enough space, maybe iTunes or the iPhone is actually removing songs from it to make room. Are they purchased songs?

    My playlists, or something similar, started showing up under Genres. It works for me because my Playlists are kind of set up around genres and albums. The regular playlists that I have listed in iTunes don't all show up -- only some do. I think it has something to do with what iTunes Match considers a clean list. As I was moving songs around and recreating my missing playlists in iTunes it started giving me warnings about mixing songs and videos as well as purchased and personally ripped songs. Don't know what is going on here but i have some functionality back.
