OK, maybe I'm not understanding the recommendation then... If the auto play list is supposed to be rating >1, how do I get unrated songs from my MMW library into the playlist to begin with, and then how to have songs with 1 star removed from MMA and the playlist when synced back to MMW. Hopefully that makes sense...

You can't add individual files to an AutoPlaylist in MMW. It is solely Criteria based. You can sync any combination of Auto and regular Playlists to your device.

Thanks, I have 2 questions: 1) if the playlist has the criteria of rating >1, would there be a problem with adding unrated tracks to it in MMW? and 2) I do have a static playlist, so in the scenario would I need both the static and auto playlists on my device in MMA?

In that case, the solution wouldn't work.

Thanks. But that sounds like then I would have 2 playlists I would need to delete them from though, unless I'm missing something...

Also, I'm not trying to remove from library or computer, I'm just looking for a streamlined way delete songs from the playslist and mobile device after I've rated 1 star in MMA and synced back with MMW.

No automated deletion, would be risky, but you can create an AutoPlaylist in MMW with Rating = 1 star as Criteria. Then just select all files listed and Remove, from Library and Computer.

Help auto delete songs from device and playlist

I'm hoping for some recommendations on how to manage playlist and device. I have a large MMW library of un-rated songs, so what I do is add them to a playlist, sync to device, rate them in MMA as I listen, then sync back to the MMW library. I rate songs with 1 star if I don't want on them on the playlist or device anymore.

Are there some easy ways to either automate the deletion of 1 star rated songs from the playlist and device once I sync back to MMW library, or if not automate what is the best way to remove them from them otherwise? Thanks!
