how to make playlists shuffle?

Is it possible to have my playlist play in shuffle mode?  I finally figured out (after way to much time spent trying) to get a playlist in my fuze.  Now, I want to play them in shuffle mode.  While the song is playing from the playlist, I push down, and make sure shuffle is set to “on”, but the songs just play in order?  Is there anyway to do this?

Did you try restarting the playlist after changing the player to shuffle mode?

now it works, I just turned shuffle off, then back on.  Whatever,
