Big problem with play lists

Hello Doctor
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.
regards

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.

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.

What does sychronizing do?


Hello,

Synchronizing on most mp3 players is used for transferring one or more playlists from a computer to the player, having a connection through USB.

Creating playlists, putting mp3 data in a list with a certain name,
mp3 could be put in a specific order.
The player preserves some space of memory to remember these playlists and the playing order.

Some players support subfolders, but not having the manual for the
MP200 I'm not sure if that will work.
e.g.
MUSIC > music list 1
> music list 2

Need Creative Zen user manual. No longer on the website. I really just need to know how to create playlists if you can help me with that.


  • Creating playlists for Creative Zen MP3 player
  1. Step 1 Turn your Creative Zen MP3 Player on and add music to its hard drive if you haven't already. Without music on your player, you won’t be able to select tracks for a playlist.
  2. Step 2 Select "Music Library" from the Main Menu. The Main Menu should appear as the first menu when you turn your device on.
  3. Step 3 Select "Now Playing" from the options available, then press the Options button.
  4. Step 4 Select "Save as Playlist" from the list of options. This will save the tracks you have listed currently as a playlist that can be reloaded later.
  5. Step 5 To play a playlist back, go to the Main Menu, select the playlist and click

Deleting playlist


Nextar MA933A – Deleting Playlists
There are a couple of different ways to approach this problem.
You could 1. connect the Nextar to your computer
2. Double-click My Computer
3. Double-click the icon that corresponds to the Nextar – this is going to be different for every computer – some will have an actual Nextar icon, some will display it as USB Mass Storage Device, and others will list it as a Removable Drive – if it is listed as a Removable Drive, you can find the right one by double-clicking each removable drive until it gives you a new window with folders labeled Music, etc.
4. Enter the Music folder and Delete the folder that corresponds to the playlist that you want to delete

If that set of methods fails, or your mp3 player does not allow you to view the contents of the drive:
1. Go to the MSC menu
2. Press MENU button
3. When you see a song displayed in the LCD, press the Play key to pause the song
4. Once song is paused, press the MENU button
5. Select “Delete File,” and select the songs you want to delete
6. Use the Menu left/right keys to toggle between “Yes” delete and “No” don’t delete

Playlist dont Show


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!

Philips GoGear SA3245 - Playlists Not Showing Up on Player


Have solved this problem on GoGear syncing with WMP 11 by going to options on the device itself, then go to the "settings" option, scroll down to "PC Connection Preferences", from here you will select the check box saying "MTP" then back out of options and connect your device and go back to your WMP 11 and drag your playlists to the syncing area and resync your device. You should then be able to see your playlists under the playlist option in music along with the "playlist on the go" playlist.

Hope this will help!

Mp3 player


Load the Philips software onto your computer. You have to load the songs onto the player using WMP (Windows Media Player) 8 or 9. Connect the player using the USB cable. Run the Philips Go Gear Digital Audio Player software. Upgrade the firmware. This will format the player and erase everything you have done so far. Start WMP. Click on the Synch tab.It will have 2 window panes. In the right side, at the top, there is a drop list. Select the player from the list. Now create a synch list by clicking on edit playlist. Once you have added the songs, click Start Synch. That's all there is to it. Ian
