Finding the stuff by album or artist is just as simple as entering the setting thru either album or artist. Going in this way you will never even know this was at one point a playlist because it will be listed by individual artist or album.
Hope that helps.
Thanks for the input but you guys are missing the point here.
I know you can search for an album or artist the point is to do that WITHIN the playlist itself.
Im not sure why APPLE doesnt have this option but it would be quite useful, especially for large playlists.

Doesnt this bother you?
APPLE is such a smart company but theyve missed a variety of simplistic additions to the ipod that would make using it alot easier.
The boave issue is one and my other gripe is-why havent they put numbers next to songs??
Sometime I know I like for example the "8th" song but dont know the name off hand.
What I am forced to do is count down the list until I find it.
Putting a number before each song is an easy fix.
