how do you shuffle the songs in a playlist?

darling, I am such a technohopelesscase I barely know what an Ipod is.

don't think much of the new Laura Cantrell, btw.

Menu- artist/song/playlist etc - shuffle (on) I think! bought boyf one for his b'day only looked at it once though when I was setting it up for him. in fact, I'm no use at all, wait for someone less dumb! toodle pip!

I have tried that Mascara and it still plods through them in boring alphabetical order

MI when you say New which one d'yyou mean?

Enid Tue 26-Jul-05 16:37:33

it will shuffle ALL the songs on the Ipod which means you get Laura Cantrell/Groove Armada/songs from Peter Pan - NOT so good.

Humming by the Flowered Vine.

On my ipod mini you go to settings and push central button till it says songs.

Enid Tue 26-Jul-05 16:40:01

have When the roses and (my fave) Not the tremblin kind

motherinferior Tue 26-Jul-05 16:42:18

Yes, both of those are fab and are often played on my compooter.

<MI tries desperately to prove technocompetence there>

Enid Tue 26-Jul-05 16:42:21

yeah scumster but that goes through all 3,000 songs on the ipod - it doesnt choose a specific playlist - I have made a seperate playlist of about 20 albums that I want it to shuffle

ScummyMummy Tue 26-Jul-05 16:43:17

Playing songs on compooter is practically techogenius, MI.

ScummyMummy Tue 26-Jul-05 16:44:46

On mine if it's shuffling then it'll shuffle the playlist automatically. There's a little sign to show that shuffle is on.

Enid Tue 26-Jul-05 16:46:06

ah so maybe I set it to Shuffle>Songs then playlist and it might do it?

ScummyMummy Tue 26-Jul-05 16:46:52

Should do.

Enid Tue 26-Jul-05 16:47:05

ist the little sign two curvy arrows with a tiny line between them??

Enid Tue 26-Jul-05 16:47:17

although it is still playing the first one

Enid Tue 26-Jul-05 16:48:44

have fforwarded nd its gone dutifully to number 2 will wait unitl its finished and see if it randomly selects one

ScummyMummy Tue 26-Jul-05 16:48:51

Try picking the song you want to hear first from the playlist. If that is then song 1 you'll know it's working.

Enid Tue 26-Jul-05 16:51:44

yes its done it!!!

our trip down to France will now be much more grown up and sensible
