Question about Philips GoGear SA178 MP3 Player
I have big problem with playlists on my PHILIPS MP3 SA3115 /02. I do everything normaly, add music to the library next I create 3 lists each with different type of music and different name of the list then I add music to the each list and after this I sync everything to my player. I see progress in my WMP 11, files synchronizing one by one, everything seems to bo alright but when I turn on my player I didn't see any lists in the menu in the playlists panel only playlist on-the-go. I've tryed to copy playlists manually to the playlist directory but I didn't work as well. Any ideas Doctor??
Is it possibly to create list by folders?? that would be perfect for me.
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.

Tips for a great answer:
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
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.
1 Start Windows Media Player.
2 Switch on your player and then connect it to your computer using the supplied USB cable.
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.
