    What exact use are the 'tick' (select/deselect) marks on the left of each song?

    Is there an option to transfer ONLY the ticked ones at one go?

    Yep, when you connect your iDevice, in the music tab, there is an option to 'Sync only checked items' or something like that.

    Nope, there it gives options to select only particular playlists, artists, albums and genres.

    So again, what use are the ticks next to each song?

    I would like to have an option where I could deselect certain, say 30/40 songs, and have an option to transfer the balance ticked (selected) ones, which amount to may be over 1500 songs, irrelevant of which artist, album or genre they beleong to.

    Otherwise I find no use of that 'tick' option next to each song.

    My mistake, it's on the Summary tab:

    "Sync only checked songs and videos"

    alternatively you can just drag the songs that you want by first check the manually manage music and videos and dragging the songs into your ipod. simple as that.

    Sure, but is for a few songs at a time, not when you have over 3000 songs. Thanks any ways

    Actually, IF, after we select or deselect individual songs and have an option to Autofill it from th same page, then that would be wonderful.

    Personally, I don't like Sync, it kind of contorls your life then !
