I created three playlists - 1) dance, 2) 80's and 3) soft rock. When I go to these playlists, the player stops after the first song. My repeat shuffle is ON and my repeat is ALL. If I try to advance to another song, the player freezes up. The only category where the the songs advances with FF buttom is under genre and play all. I want to listen to sepearate playlists, not all my songs downloaded. any help is appreicated. I have Windows Vista.

Re: Probelm with playlists
The Vista compatible software may work different, but I have mine set to Repeat OFF, and I have no problem with playlist play. Is it possible that the songs that you put on your playlist are in the wrong format? If they were streaming files, or DRM-encrypted WMA's, there may be issues with playback. Convert the songs in your playlists to mp3 format ON THE COMPUTER, and then delete the playlists that are not working OFF YOUR SANSA. And then re-add the playlists to your Sansa.

Hi, You can do play list from your PC. By connecting your MP3 player to the PC through Usb cable..
Things You'll Need:
* Computer * Media player * Digital music files
Creating a playlist on your computer is an easy way to organize your music. Playlists allow you to organize music by different artists or different genres. More advanced playlists can even sort your music based on when it was added or how often you play a particular song. Creating a playlist is an easy task regardless of the media player you use to play your music.
Determine what songs you would like to add to your playlist.
Create a new playlist in your media player. Depending on your media player, this step will vary. There is usually a "Create Playlist" button that you can click to create a new playlist. In iTunes, this button is on the bottom lower left corner. In Winamp, click the "View" menu and select "Playlist Editor".
Select the songs that you want in your playlist from a new Windows Explorer window. If you are using a Macintosh computer, select the songs from a new Finder window. You can hold down CTRL to select multiple tracks. Drag and drop these selected songs into the new playlist you have just created.
Save the playlist you have just created. Most media players have a "Save Playlist" button. Other media players such as iTunes will automatically save the playlist for you when you first create it. In Winamp, click the "Manage Playlist" button in the bottom right corner. In the following context menu, click "Save Playlist". Name the playlist whatever you want and then choose where you want it to be saved.
There are two ways in which you can add a playlist.... 1......by using your playlist via the player... 2......or by creating one using the computer....
First lets see the one using the player...all you have to do is go to the song navigate option...highligh the song that you wan to add to your playlist and then click the record button.you will be given two choices..one add to my playlist and two erase.....click the add to my playlist option and you will have the song added to you r playlist.....
second method is create a normal playlist using windows media player with the correct directories in the player and then copy the file to the player... now when you press the menu button for a second or two in the songs menu...you will be displayed two choices....one file navigator and the other is playlists.... click the playlists option to access the playlists....
1) Open the Sansa in 'My Computer' 2) Double click on the 'Playlist' folder 3) Drag the music you want from the computer into the 'Playlist' folder 4) Highlight all the files (or the files you want) 5) Right click 6) On the menu that pops up click "Create Playlist" - on my computer it's the very first option, in bold 7) Playlist will be created in the 'Playlist' folder 8) Name it whatever you want and enjoy!!

2.Go to my computer and open your mp3 player in windows.
3.go to your folder on your mp3 player that you have files folders etc.. that you would like to add to a playlist.
4.right click on folder and choose "create playlist"
5.Name your playlist.

Creating Playlist To create a playlist for Windows Media Player, follow these steps: 1. Launch Windows Media Player. 2. Clear the List pane by clicking the Clear List pane button. 3. Click the arrow below the Library Tab then select Create Playlist. 4. Type in the name of your Playlist. Loading Content 14 5. Click Songs from Library then drag them from the Details pane to the List Pane. 6. To rearrange the songs, drag them up or down in the List pane. 7. Click Save Playlist. Transferring Playlists To transfer playlists to your Sansa player, follow these steps: 1. Connect your Sansa player to the computer. 2. Select Sync digital media files to this devices using Windows Media Player on initial connection. 3. Right-click on Your Sansa Player, then select Set Up Sync. Loading Content 15 4. Select Personal Playlists from the drop down menu on the left pane. 5. Highlight the playlists you want to transfer to your Sansa player, click Add, then Finish. 6. Synchronization will start as soon as you click Finish. To see the Sync progress, click on Sync Results.
First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:
) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB". 2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".
Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.
However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.
To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:
- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode - Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list - Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings" - Check "Synchronize device automatically" - Set "View" to "All Playlists" - Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device - Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.
Hi, I too wanted playlist and found it out for v 1.25 K. I am not 100% sure about playlists for version 1.30E sorry, but you can try. This is how I make playlists. Plug your iriver into your computer. Make a folder on your iriver, call it whatever you want. I called mine playlists. Create a textfile in the folder, call it whatever you want and give it the extension the same as winamp gives. I think it is .m3u? Maybe .m3p? Anyway, find that out. Open the file in notepad and put the path to the song. eg: \music\rock\linkin park\numb.mp3 Add as many as you want one under the other. And make as many playlists as you want. Then unplug your iriver and let it rebuild. In music mode, you have to not be playing a song, so stop any music, then just press the A-B button and a list of the playlists should appear. Select one and away you go. If the press A-B does not work, try holding it. I can't remember as i havn't used mine for a bit. Sorry I can't be most specific about your version. Or the extension of the file, I wrote a program myself to do the work for me. Check to see if it works for you, if you want a copy of the program I can send it to you. it is in .Net 2 so you will need the the framework installed.
Alright, well if you are adding songs to your MP3 player by using Windows Media Player, you can create playlists there, sort the songs into what playlists you want them in, right click the playlist, and click "add to sync list".
If you are manually copying and pasting the music into the mp3 player (that's how I do it) it's a little less obvious... For me there are three main folders: Music, Playlists, and RECORD. So we want to go to the playlists folder. In there, assuming you have at least one playlist already, you can copy and paste it, naming it something else and changing its properties as you see fit (right click -> properties). To add songs to the playlist, you go to it's properties, and under the references tab, drag the music files from wherever you have them stored and drop them in the references tab. This won't move your music, it'll just add them to the playlist. and.... guess that's about it. Hopefully that helped.
