Alright, well if you are adding songs to your MP3 player by using Windows Media Player, you can create playlists there, sort the songs into what playlists you want them in, right click the playlist, and click "add to sync list".

If you are manually copying and pasting the music into the mp3 player (that's how I do it) it's a little less obvious... For me there are three main folders: Music, Playlists, and RECORD. So we want to go to the playlists folder. In there, assuming you have at least one playlist already, you can copy and paste it, naming it something else and changing its properties as you see fit (right click -> properties). To add songs to the playlist, you go to it's properties, and under the references tab, drag the music files from wherever you have them stored and drop them in the references tab. This won't move your music, it'll just add them to the playlist. and.... guess that's about it. Hopefully that helped.

Hi I have a playlist on my itunes which when I download it onto my ipod, one of the songs is missed off. This song shows and plays on the playlist on itunes, and is on the main menu of my ipod, just not...


  1. Plug in your iPod to your computer and run iTunes.
  2. Sync your device.
  3. Re-check to make sure that song is under that specific playlist (if its not drag it onto the playlist)
  4. Make sure the box next to the song in iTunes is checked meaning it will sync with your iPod and your playlist.
  5. Apply the changes you have made to the playlist by re-syncing your iPod.
  6. If the box is checked and you sync your device the song should be listed under your playlist.

How do I connect multiple iPods to One Computer


<p>Suppose you have more than one iPod that you want your computer. Or maybe you have two people with the same computer, otherwise synchronize their iPods. There are a few different ways to go about it. Windows and Mac OS you can run multiple iPods with USB cables and your music library to open. But you can use these methods to various media files to synchronize multiple iPods. <br /> <p><br /> <p>Create separate iTunes libraries <br /> <p>1. Keep the "Options" key while you open iTunes on your computer, if you use a Mac the same way, hold down the "Shift" key while you open iTunes and Windows. This will be a new dialog. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Click on "Create Library". Name the new library and save it. iTunes will open this new library you created. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Open "Preferences". Do this by selecting "iTunes" and "Preferences" on a Mac, and "Edit" Preferences "in Windows. Click the" tab "Advanced. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Check the box next to "Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library." Click "OK". This will ensure duplicate files are not included in your new library. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Add the files you want to add in your new library, which are the files you want to go to your second iPod. To do this, drag the files from your hard drive in iTunes. You can also choose "File" and "Add to Library". Add to your library until you see the way you want. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Connect your iPod to your computer via USB. Sync your iPod to your iTunes library. Quit iTunes once the synchronization is complete. <br /> <p><br /> <p>7. Repeat step 1 to re-open iTunes. Select "Choose Library". Now your original or the new library you created to switch between the music from your iPod library. <br /> <p><br /> <p>Create separate user accounts <br /> <p>1. On a Mac, select the Apple menu. Choose System Preferences. Select the "View" menu and select "Accounts." Click the "+" to create a new user. Connect your iPod to iTunes and sync with this user. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. In Windows, click the "Start" button. Go to the Control Panel. In "User Accounts and Family Safety", select "Add or Remove User Accounts." Click on "Create a new account." Connect your iPod to iTunes and sync with this user. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Log off your account and to switch between users. This way you can sync your iPod separately for each user. It can be useful if multiple users have different tastes in music. They may have their iTunes libraries and iPods. <br /> <p><br /> <p>Sync iPods with different playlists <br /> <p>1. Open "iTunes". Create multiple playlists to be synchronized with each of their iPods. For example, you can create a playlist of workout you just upload to your iPod nano, in turn, allows your entire library on your iPod touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect your iPod via a USB cable. You can do one at a time or simultaneously on a Mac Windows does not support synchronization of more than one iPod at a time. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Click on the first iPod in "Devices". In the "Music", select "Sync Music." Select "Selected playlists, artists and genres." <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Click Apply. This will start the synchronization process. Repeat this process for the other iPods. <br />

How to Create a Playlist in iTunes


For many of us, using an iPod with iTunes is simple and second nature, but for a beginner, iTunes can be a confusing place. For this reason, I have created this how-to of how to create a playlist in iTunes. <br /> Playlists are easy and fun. They allow us to have a good mix of songs to work out with, do household chores with, or just hang out with. Here is how to create a playlist in iTunes. <ol> <li>First, you must open iTunes</li> <li>Once opened, click "File" &gt; "New Playlist". For those of you who prefer to use command keys, you can press Ctrl+N, and it will do the same thing.</li> <li>You will be taken to a screen with no songs listed on it. This is your new playlist. It is titled "untitled playlist," and the title is highlighted. To change the title, simple type the desired title and then click anywhere else. If the title is no longer highlighted because you clicked elsewhere, simply click the title twice (slowly), and it will once again become highlighted.</li> <li>After the playlist is titled, you are ready to begin adding songs. To do this, simply go to your music collection by clicking "Music" on the left column and selecting the song you want from your collection. Once the desired song is selected, simply drag it on top of the playlist title. This will add the song to the playlist.</li> <li>Once multiple songs have been added, you can drag a song up or down in the list to change the song order.</li> <li>After all of the desired songs are in the playlist, simply connect your iPod and sync it with iTunes.

How to do playlist on the s100


Hi, You can do play list from your PC. By connecting your MP3 player to the PC through Usb cable..

Things You'll Need:

* Computer
* Media player
* Digital music files

Creating a playlist on your computer is an easy way to organize your music. Playlists allow you to organize music by different artists or different genres. More advanced playlists can even sort your music based on when it was added or how often you play a particular song. Creating a playlist is an easy task regardless of the media player you use to play your music.



Determine what songs you would like to add to your playlist.


Create a new playlist in your media player. Depending on your media player, this step will vary. There is usually a "Create Playlist" button that you can click to create a new playlist. In iTunes, this button is on the bottom lower left corner. In Winamp, click the "View" menu and select "Playlist Editor".


Select the songs that you want in your playlist from a new Windows Explorer window. If you are using a Macintosh computer, select the songs from a new Finder window. You can hold down CTRL to select multiple tracks. Drag and drop these selected songs into the new playlist you have just created.


Save the playlist you have just created. Most media players have a "Save Playlist" button. Other media players such as iTunes will automatically save the playlist for you when you first create it. In Winamp, click the "Manage Playlist" button in the bottom right corner. In the following context menu, click "Save Playlist". Name the playlist whatever you want and then choose where you want it to be saved.

Have a nice day....

Sansa m250 playlists


First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:

) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB".
2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".

Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.

However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.


To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:

- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode
- Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list
- Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings"
- Check "Synchronize device automatically"
- Set "View" to "All Playlists"
- Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device
- Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.

Hope this helps

Create your playlist with winamp and then copy it over with the songs listed in the playlist. You can make as many playlists as you like and they will show up under "playlist" on the screen
