Sorting Playlists from iTunes to iPod

    Smart Playlists don't seem to sort right when new tracks are added. Say I create a 5 star playlist, and as each 5 star song is added at my discretion, the smart playlist picks it up. The only problem is that I want it to be sorted by artist on my iPod, and it is sorted by add date on the list. So any new tracks go on the very bottom. No matter how much I try to sort each playlist by artist in iTunes, the iPod still shows the playlist by when each track was added. Is there any way to do this, short or deleting and remaking the 10 smart playlists I use?

    Just sort the smart playlist Artist column and it should use that order on your iPod.
