I’m trying to replicate my iTunes playlists using the Firelfly smart playlist wizard. Having read many of the forum posts on playlists, I’m still having trouble understanding how to create a Firefly playlist based on the iTunes star ratings, e.g. Echo & the Bunnymen tracks rated > ***
Do I need to take an intermediate step, to create a value in the “comment” field in iTunes, which represents the star rating? I see from your posts that this is normally done from in steps of 20 points from a value of 0 to 100.
Or, is Firefly able to pick up the star rating automatcially if I simply tell the wizard that, for example, rating > 60? I have tried this option and the tracks don’t appear in the smart playlist folder when viewed on my Soundbridge or in iTunes.
I have my library on a NAS drive, in case that throws any further spanners into the works, however I am able to see the iTunes playlists passed through from the XML file.
