I think you have to first copy the musics to the mp3 player then when the music's are in the mp3 you make the playlist but i stil think that will not work because some mp3 dont suport playlist's.

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.
You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable.
For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track.

I want to remove a artist from my playlist


if you dont like the artist or music albums name to be appearing in the display(which is sometime annoying)the trick is here.drag and drop your songs and mp3 lists into the player just like basic copy and paste in windows.the name of the album and artists appear in the display only if you synchronize your player with the computer using players(like real,Wmv etc).
so go for the basic copy and paste instead of synchronizing option.please let me know your feedback.
thanks,

How do I download music on my mp3 player? I bought the mp3 player(gpxml638b) and it did not have any soft ware. I have the wire to plug from mp3 to computer, but how do I start downloading music?


Sir,

1. Turn on the MP3 Player by holding the PLAY/PAUSE button.
2. Take the USB Cord and plug the corresponding ends into the MP3 Player and a Computer.
3. When connected the LCD Display will either say “USB” or “MTP”.
4. Press the “M” (mode) button to switch between “USB” and “MTP” mode.
“MTP” mode will only work, when your player is connected to Microsoft
® Windows® XP and Windows® Media Player 10.
The MP3 Player will only work in “USB” mode when it is connected to Windows® 98SE, ME, or 2000 Professional.


1. Start Windows Media Player 9 and connect the MP3 Player to your computer.
2. Click “Copy to CD or Device”.
3. In the drop-down list, on the “Items to Copy” pane, click the play list, category, or other item that you want to copy.
4. Clear the check boxes next to any files you do not want to copy.
5. In the drop-down list, on the “Items to Copy” pane, click the device that you want to copy files to.
6. Click the ‘Copy’ button.
7. Repeat steps 2-5 for any other items that you want to copy to your unit.



1. Start Windows Media Player 10 and connect the unit to your computer. On your player’s display it should say ‘MTP’. If not, then while the unit is connected press the ‘M’ (mode) button to change from ‘USB’ to ‘MTP’ mode.
2. If you have not set up synchronization between your computer
and this device, the Device Setup Wizard starts. In the Device Setup Wizard, select Manual.
3. Click Finish.
4. Select Library option. On the right pane select Sync List.
5. From the left pane you can select the Play list or Library and you will see the content songs in the center pane.
6. Select the songs from the center pane, drag and add them to the Sync List.
7. Click the ‘Start Sync’ button in the Sync List pane.
8. Repeat steps 4-7 for any other items that you want to copy to your unit.


Thanks
Good Luck

I bought my daughter a sansa shake for christmas and it wont sync on any computer?


i wouldnt use sync feature for the shaker read the following:
check the file types from you music the shaker only plays MP3 and PCM WAV  file types. You may have WMA (if u used windows media player) which will not play on the shaker  (i had this same ploblem btw) you can easly find free music file converter software to change these files to mp3 or wav types (which i did), or you could rerip to songs from a cd and tell the windows media player to rip the files as mp3 types instead of the default wma format  from the windows media player widow :
tools >> options >> Rip Music >> under format select mp3 (theres a wav option but i used the mp3 option to be safe) 
do not use the sync feature it will automatically convert your files to to wma (why? i dont know) instead copy the files directly from the folder that contains them :
right click the file you need to put on the player select open file location drag and drop to the player (or copy/paste if you want).
hope this helped =P

Music on mp3 player isn't working


Try copy and pasting the music files directly onto your MP3. It should play. Thats how I did it on my phone and the music plays fine.
