A script to keep playlists synced with iPhones/iPods

The manual syncing is a personal preference. But one BIG problem with automatic syncing is that if you have your music library on an external drive and plug in your ipod and that drive's not attached, it deletes all the music on your ipod.

Well, he's right. ITunes doesn't delete songs that can't be found (have a ! by them) from an i-whatever during autosync. To get them deleted, you have to synchronize with an empty library, which is very different from a ! filled library.

Unfortunately, he is. I just hate it when d-bags are right, it makes them into bigger d-bags. The problem wasn't that my drive wasn't attached, it was that I synced it with a computer that didn't have my library on it. Anyway, I do not use autosync for this, and other reasons (see leamanc's post).
