Question about Philips GoGear SA3245/37 Digital Media Player
I'm trying to sync playlists on my Windows Media Player 11 to my GoGear. I have added the playlists by dragging and dropping the playlists to the Sync list and also right clicking on the playlist and choosing to "add to sync list", and clicking the Start Sync buttong. It synchronizes but doesn't put the music on the player as playlists...it just puts them into individual folders by artist. Any suggestions??? Thank you for your help.
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!

I've called Philips twice on this. The first time, they told me I could save a playlist to my desktop, then drag it to the Playlists folder. But this didn't work. When I called just now, they told me the only playlist I could make is the on-the-go one that you can do only on the unit itself. Lame.

I have the same issue. My work around is to copy MP3s into folders and drop them on the player. Selecting the folder will then play only the songs in that folder. Poor Person's playlist.

A letter i received from the Phillips Consumer Care:
We understand that you were unable to sync the playlist you created to your Flash audio player. Please be informed that this unit is unable to support playlist created on the computer. The playlist must be created on the device. Please click on the link below to access the user's manual:
Please refer to page 10 for information on what buttons to push to add or delete currently playing song to list. Please refer to page 17 which shows how to to view songs in list.

TO Alovercast: "Selecting the folder will then play only the songs in that folder." How is this accomplished? Playing one song in that folder via the Folders view does not play all in that folder. Play repeats on that one song selected. There is no All Songs/Shuffle All option at top of list as there is in the Music option. thx

I don't think that the SA3245 mp3 player is capable of syncing the playlist itself, only the songs. The only playlist you can make is the playlist on the go. I'm not sure how true this is. But it seems to be the same way on my Philips SA3245 player.

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.
