Question about Sony Walkman NWZ-S616F MP3 Player
Sony mp3 model nwz-s606f tried everything including exchanging the walkman. when i create a playlist and then sync it transfers the music to the library only. when i select playlist on the mp3 play i get the message "no playlist available. please connect to compliant software or device and transfer playlists".i have followed the instruction bulletins from the readme file on the sony media manager and also on the windows media player. had the same problem with both mp3 players. is there a problem with this option on the mp3 player?? It has just been released for sale is my understanding. very frustrated.
Windows Media Player (WMP) 11 in XP does not create Playlist on my MP3 MTP device. I have a Sony Walkman NWZ-S544 but I think my problem and its solution could also apply to other MP3 players that don't receive Playlists from WMP. And perhaps to Vista and Windows 7?
When I connected my WALKMAN to my PC and used WMP to Sync (transfer) Playlists to it, the songs were correctly Synched but no Playlists were created on my WALKMAN. My problem was that Windows had installed the wrong driver for my WALKMAN. Here is how I diagnosed and fixed the problem.
DIAGNOSIS: When I used WMP to Sync, the picture in WMP's right hand window was a generic MP3 device. It should have looked like my WALKMAN NWZ-S544. When I looked at the device drivers, I couldn't find a driver for my WALKMAN NWZ-S544 under Portable Devices, but instead found a non-MTP Walkman listed as a USB Mass Storage Device. (See Fix explanation for how to look at device drivers.)
Fix: To fix the problem I first uninstalled the incorrect driver and then installed the correct driver. Here's how…

Download WalkmanMTP from the above link and unzip. If all your files are already on your mp3 player, just create a new playlist, select the songs you want, and sync. If you already have it all on your PC, it will upload the files as well.
If the above link is cut off, this is the entire on one line:

I had the same problem with my Sony. Here is how I fixed it:
In Media Player, right click on the Playlist you want to add to your MP3 player, select "Add to Sync list". Then sync the files and it should work. I tried dragging and dropping into in the Sync pane and it would not work.

I found it out myself (no thanks to sony online chat support)
simply, i had to reformat my player, sync ONLY 1 playlist at a time, and then sync all my other songs. really lame way to do it, but it works (did it to mine 5 minutes ago)

Use Mediamonkey to transfer playlists. Go into the synchroize options/configure, select your device and then select all the playlists you want to transfer. They will all transfer in one sync and you will not lose any songs that are repeated on other playlists.

Well if you have windows media (press the start button, then go to all programs then find windows media player) first you go to which ever file has your music then you drag the music from that file or folder and place it on now playings list. once you have gotten all the songs you want on your playlist you go to now playing button then go to save playlist as then create a title of your choice next you go to the top of the screen and press the sync button . next you hook up your mp3 to computer then you go to items to syncronize and you should find your playlist in there it might automaticly start syncing with your mp3 if not you go to the right side of the screen right across from your playlist file you should see a b;ank space, click the arrow (down) yiu should see your mp3 some where in there then you go right above the name of your playlist and you press start sync once sync is finish safely emove your mp3 and your playlist should be on there

The first thing you must do is format the player and add a playlist like mazeofmyster said. Afterwards, you can freely add new playlists or individual songs.

The easiest way to create a playlist is to organize the music files on your computer. Attach your device and go to
Start Menu; Devices and Printers; Walkman; Browse Files; Click on the Storage Device; Music Folder.
Once you are in the music folder reorganize mp3 files into folders then right click on the folder you want to make into a playlist. Go down the pop up menu and click on Create Playlist. A playlist will be created which will show up in the music folder of your device, not the playlist folder.
Note; make sure that there are no subfolders in the folder you want to create a playlist of. Transfer all the mp3s out of subfolders and into one main folder.

I've been having the same problem for years with at least six different mp3 players. I'm going to attempt the solution Anaguma suggested.

Try using mediamonkey to sync playlists. the only problem is you can't sync 2 playlists with the same songs cuz one of them will lose the repeated songs

I had the same problem. One day my Mp3 started acting weird and said it was not recognizing the files and that i needed to re download them. Try plugging it up to your computer while its charging and hit the power off. Then reset your mp3 with the button at the bottom and it should recognize it.
