Well, I’ve been trying to get .m3u files to work in my wife’s Fuze.
Background~~ I’ve always hand-written my .m3u’s. Open up notepad, type in the header, list the path to each tune; you’re done. Easy to do, easy to edit, re-arrange, add, etc, etc, and all you need is a text editor. Gets a little burdensome if the playlist is hundreds of tunes long, but for short ones it’s easy and fast.
Been searching the forum for quite a while. I wrote a one tune test .m3u to hit a single tune in the /MUSIC directory and I can’t get it to work.
Stuff I’ve tried~~
1. Carefully checked the spelling and path of the tune. Had that trip me up many times before.
2. Tried forward slashes and backslashes.
3. Tried putting the .m3u on the root and also in the /MUSIC directory. I see that the Fuze will find the .m3u and show it in Playlists whether you put it on the root or in the /MUSIC directory. By the way, I did change the path depending on where I tried the playlist.
4. Tried saving it as a .m3u8 file.
5. Tried saving it as a .m3u8 file and saving it as UTF-8 formatting.
It always shows up as [EMPTY] when selected on the Fuze. I’m out of ideas. Anyone have a suggestion?
Here’s how the playlist looks I’ve tried on the root. Dirt simple and nothing fancy:
