    A list of all the playlists that you ever exported to your iTunes account will be displayed in the ‘Import’ dialogue box. Look for the desired playlist. If you have a very large number of playlists in the account, a possible way to save time looking for a particular playlist would be to press the letter key with which the name of the playlist you are looking for starts. For instance, if you are looking for a play list that was named ‘My Favourite Songs’, press the M key on your keyboard to make the search easier.
