I know it doesn't work to get the actual playlist on the player through Windows Media Player, it just adds all the songs IN the playlist. Is there another way that does work?

Re: How do you add a playlist to the player!!!

There is another way but that is called Favorites. First go to settings on the player and enable advance then go to one of your songs and press the select button then it will give you an option that says add to favorites? choose the check mark to add that songs to your playlist. Also there is a way to add playlist using windows media player. The steps given would be for windows media player 10. First click on the Library Tab thecn click on the arrow for the Now Playing List choose New List then Playlist, now add songs to your newly created playlist by dragging them to the drag items here window after you have choosen all the songs you like click on Now Playing List and choose Save Playlist As.. After saving the playlist change the settings of the player to Autodetect and connect the player to the computer. Now wait for it to be detected by the computer and click on SYNC tab on the windows media player software. There are two windows the left is where you will choose the playlist the right your mp3 player. Choose the playlist that you have created and click on START SYNC now it will be transferring the playlist to your mp3 player just go to Music then Playlist. Hope this helps :D

How do i copy music to my mp3

You can sync your music and pictures to your player using Windows Media Player.

By default, Windows Media Player automatically loads all the music and picture files

stored in your My Music and My Pictures folders into the library. If you add new files to
these folders, they will also be automatically added to the library.

If Windows Media Player has selected to sync your device automatically, you can choose not to sync your entire media library. You can choose what you wish to sync from existing

playlists or create new playlists. These playlists you have selected will then sync to your player every time you connect it to your computer.

1 Click the down arrow beneath the Sync tab and select Philips GoGear SA60xx > Set Up Sync.

> The Device Setup dialog box appears.

2 In the Available playlists pane, select the existing playlists you want to sync and then

click Add.


4.3.4 Select files and playlists for Manual Sync

If you sync manually, you must create a list of files and playlists you want to sync. You can also shuffle which files from your playlists to sync to your player.

3 Click the Sync tab.

4 Drag the files and playlists that you want to sync from the Contents pane to the Sync List pane. You can also right-click on the file or playlist and select Add to "Sync List".

3 To create a playlist, click New Auto Playlist and follow the steps on the screen to specify criteria for files in the auto playlist (for details on how to create an auto playlist,

4 To remove a playlist, click the playlist in the list of Playlists to sync, and then click Remove.

5 In the Playlists to sync pane, select a playlist and click the Priority arrows to arrange
them in the order that you want them to sync.

How do I to add a playlist

It's funny how Sony phrases it - you must use Windows Media Player 11 to transfer playlists to your device, but it may not work properly. Go to the Sync tab of WMP 11 - notice how it says drag playlists here to synchronize to your device. Once you have dragged the playlist over, hit Start Sync.

Trying to music on rca lyra mp3

Try Windows Media Player 10 or 11 on an XP machine. Search for media files on your computer to add to the Media Player library. Create a playlist of songs from your library. Use the Sync tab to sync the RD2765 to that playlist.

How do i make a playlist

That player is set up for playlist transfer through Windows Media Player 10 only - you can either: 1) rollback your Windows Media Player to ver. 10; 2) attempt the firmware upgrade by running the Update tab in Philips Device Manager (may not work); 3) reinstall the installation CD - select Repair as your choice - it will add a plug-in that it may have skipped during initial installation. Good luck!

Gogear 6330/17 - Creating/Adding Playlist

You MUST use Windows Media Player 10 - Windows Media Player 9 or 11 will not transfer the playlist correctly.  Once you have version 10 installed, then the instructions in the HDD6330 user manual will be accurate.

Big problem with play lists

According to the manual for most GoGear's, you have to have automatic synchronization enabled in Windows Media Player for the playlists to transfer correctly.I still have not been able to verify if this is true, since I have been able to transfer playlists fine with and without auto-sync engaged.

I haven't tried a 3115 specifically, but with an SA4111 and an SA5125, I just created the playlist in Windows Media Player 11, right clicked on the playlist name after it was created, selected "Add to Sync List," and then "Start Sync" with GoGear connected. I used this method, because it seemed more likely to add the songs AS A PLAYLIST rather than just dragging and dropping the tracks WITHIN the playlist.

As I look more closely at the documentation for the SA3115, however, it does not have the same playlists options as other GoGear's - it seems to limit you to Playlist-on-the-Go. I know that the GoGear will not recognize folders that you create in Windows Explorer, so that option is out. You can connect the GoGear, and see if a Playlists folder appears in the left-hand pane underneath the icon of the GoGear in the Sync tab. My gut feeling, however, is that this player is just not as equipped as other GoGear models for playlist transfer. I'll go back to the lab on tuesday and see if I can find anything new.
