Ok, I'm able to get my Fuze to recognize that I added playlists, using playlists that I create in Winamp, however, when I open the playlist in my Fuze, it shows as completely empty. How do I get the playlists to work? I'm using Ubuntu.
Solved! Go to Solution.

There are many posts on this already, please search for "m3u". Also look in the Clip forum (playlists work the same on both).
Short answer is that the paths in the playlist are most likely not correct. The paths need to be relative to the location of the m3u file.
BTW, how are you using Winamp with Ubuntu?

Note: You can not combine the music from your player's internal memory and the SD card into a single playlist unless you convert the .m3u format that Winamp creates into .pla format. Google around; there are programs/scripts people have wrtten that will do this.
Disclaimer: Ths works for me using Winamp running Windows. You're running Linux, so "your mileage may vary!"

That doesn't work. I'm gonna see if I can get the EasyTAG thing to work.
ETA: The EasyTAG program works. Thank you both for your guys help.

D'oh! What the heck was I thinking? S-u-u-r-r-r-e, open a Windows explorer pane in Linux! That'd be a nice trick!

I have tried to add a play list and I did get further than the instructions got me, but all that it showed me was the playlist' name on my MP3, when I clicked on it it did not contain any of the songs that I added to the playlist in winamp and said it was empty. Can you still help me ?!

Did you transfer the songs as well as the playlist?

Make sure the songs you are adding to the playlist are from the player, not the same song files that may reside on your computer's hard drive. The paths won't be correct. This would cause an <empty> playlist.

I am the songs to my playlist by dragging them into winamp from the windows browser of sansa as well as just right clicking, send to playlist. Both show up as an <empty> playlist. Thanks for your help.
