    Organizing Ipod Shuffle Music
    I have an old iPod shuffle ( don't laugh ) and I loaded some music onto it, cool. But how do I re-arrange the music ? Because all 37 songs will always play in the same order but i want to re-arrange them. I tried to drag and drop songs to different places within the list of songs but they don't move to the new location??? What do i do ??

    Start by letting us know what you mean by "old iPod Shuffle." There have been four completely different models so far, each with their own way of operating, so let us know which generation you're talking about and then we can help.

    This is how I got around the issue that i was having trying to re-arrange the music on my iPOD shuffle. I deleted the music on my Shuffle and in itunes. Then I re-installed the music from into itunes from my music CD's. But instead of letting itunes number my music with their default numberings. I did a control click/ Get Info on each song and put in my own song number. And this worked. So when I want to re arrange songs i go into this same area and give each song a new number and the song will fall automatically fall into the new numerical order. But i do have to change the second songs number or otherwise i will have two songs with the same number. Hope tis makes sense for anybody who can use this this. Any comments, any one ???!!!
