Copy multiple playlists from iTunes to a mounted iPod.

For macOS 10.10 and later only. This script will copy the selected playlists and the files of the tracks contained in each from your iTunes library to a mounted iPod in iTunes. The device must be connected and set to "Manually manage songs and videos".

To be clear, this script works best with "conventional" iPods. It may not work very well with iOS devices and will not work at all with: iOS devices using iCloud Music Library; iPod Shuffle; Windows-formatted iPods.

Also see Delete Device Playlists.

Watch the video demo below.
