A few months ago I purchased an iPod Shuffle. For those of you who may not know, the unit either plays the tracks from beginning to end, or, at my option, plays tracks in a random sequence. Now I have a lot of music on my computer, and I loaded about 150 tracks onto the Shuffle. Then I learned that in shuffle mode, it played about 20 - 25 random tracks, and then started over on the same set. I wanted to find out how to get to the next random set, so I downloaded the instructions. Maybe it’s in there, but I couldn’t find it.
I let it go for a while, and then the other day I phoned Apple technical support. I explained my problem to the tech who answered, and he had me go through a rather complicated procedure that ended up deleting all the songs on my iPod, and replacing them with my entire song list. That is NOT what I wanted! But before I could complain, I was cut off. I should say, FORTUNATELY I was cut off.
So Iphoned Apple tech -- again. This time a different tech answered, and I explained the problem all over again. “Oh, that’s very simple,” he said, and proceeded to tell me how to get to the next set of tracks -- a very simple procedure, indeed. So as soon as the present random starts to repeat, I’ll try the method. Wish me luck!
( I just tried the change as described, and it worked just fine.)
