Welcome to the Rockbox Technical Forums!
Thats fine Ms. Lloreen.
Hi...I have a little application that i made in .net using the library SharePodLib that i've been using for exactly the same purpose you want: generating playlist for rockbox from the SmartPlaylists in iTunesDB... so i want to share it.It reads all the Smart Playlists stored in the Ipod generated with iTunes, and creates a playlist for each one with the same name in *.m3u8 format, so it can be read from rockbox. The playlists created are stored in the "Playlists" folder in the iPod.You must have iTunes closed and it needs .NET framework 2.0 to run (can be downloaded from here).The app is here.Hope it can help you.
Keep up the grand work! You'll never hear a complaint out of me so long as Rockbox continues to grow; I wish I could code, or come within some semblance thereof, but I don't think I'm cut out for much more than HTML, XML and CSS.
Ok, I waited for things to cool down a bit before I registered and started posting... First off, thanks for RockBox, I will be donating soon.As far as iTunes playlists are concerned, I think vcardenas might have been pushed to the side during all the ruckus. The tiny piece of software he offered in his post here worked wonders on my smart playlists in iTunes!The playlists stores songs by the song filename and since iTunes converts all filenames into a 4 character code it makes it a bit difficult to know what the song is in the list. But the playlist is still 100% functional and the title display during playback is spot on (including the 'Next' title).vcardenas - if you could tweak it to get the title name as the displayed name in the created .m3u8 list that would rock (no pun intended).What I do now is, maintain what music I want on my iPod via iTunes (since I have too much to fit on my 30gb disk) and manage my playlist via iTunes and re-run this little app when I make a change.Thanks vcardenas!

On a side note: Would it be an idea to perhaps have a forum for questions that are explicitly not meant for developers? A forum where users are free to whine about this or that, you know, get it out of their system, until someone walks in and tells them "hey, just look at http://... , someone fixed it for us!" Eh?
