But is there a way to get the names of the playlists all in the same order, for instance Artist name > Album name ? I have all my albums tagged with MP3Tag or Tag & Rename. But the playlists, generated with your tool are different in order. Some are Artist > Album and some are Album > Artist. Has it something to do with the tagging itself and is there a way to influence it ?

If I understand correctly what you're saying, then I'm afraid not. The playlists themselves are ordered by the Clip. There's no way to change that.

Here is an example of what I mean ( a few playlists):
Tracy Chapman - Our Bright Future - MUSIC.m3u8
Manu Chao-La Radiolina - MUSIC.m3u8
I See A Darkness - Bonnie ''Prince'' Billy.m3u8
The Living Road - Lhasa De Sela.m3u8
The first two have the artist name in front and the 3rd and 4th the album name.

Hey everyone! This looks like a great tool! I have one a couple of questions though:
and, that being said:
2. Can I use this to make playlists for my "Sansa View"
3. If not, what can I use? Is there a similar program?
I don't have my "Sansa View" yet, so I can't test it, but I expect to arrive soon and would like to know how to make playlists.

XCFan, the View is quite like the Clip, so it's probably OK to use my program with it too. Other than that, you could also use any desktop media player to create M3U playlists (WMP, WinAmp, etc.)

This is probably because the first two folders are named as "Artist - Album". The name genaration works better if you have an "Artist" folder containing one or more "Album" folders.
You could either rename the folders or separate them and run AutoM3U twice with different settings, changing the name generation order. Anyway, I'm planning to have a preview function in the next version that I hope will make things like this easier. It will let you see the playlists before they are created and let you modify their names, song order etc.

Do I load songs directly through your program? And can I have as many individual playlists as I choose? When I sync through Windows Media Player and add a playlist, it overwrites my previous playlist. Does your program do away with WMP altogether? Is there some detailed step-by-step instruction for your program?
