Bottom line is some, but not all of the playlists that I generated in winamp will not play. The lists show on my Fuze, but refuse to play. The individual songs will play. What am I doing wrong?
Fuze 2G Firmware version V01.01.11A
example of M3U playlist generated by winamp
#EXTINF:391,Arlo Guthrie - Motorcycle (Significance of the Pickle)
60s-arlo guthrie- motorcycle (significance of the pickle) song.mp3
#EXTINF:271,Eric Burdon and the Animals - House of the Rising Sun
60s-eric burdon and the animals- house of the rising sun.mp3
#EXTINF:241,Jimi Hendrix - All Along the Watchtower
60s-jimi hendrix- all along the watchtower.mp3
60s-jimi hendrix- castles made of sand.mp3
60s-otis redding- (sittin’ on) the dock of the bay.mp3
60s-Steppenwolf- Born To Be Wild.mp3
60s-Traffic- Can’t Find My Way Home.mp3
Most of the songs are encoded at 44khz, 128kbit, joint stereo, no crc bit, no copyright bit, original bit set
Winamp ver. 5.35
Playlist is located in the \Music\ directory, i.e. \Music\60s.m3u.
With the songs located in the \Music\60s folder.
I have other playlists that I generated at the same time using winamp that work fine, for example:
#EXTINF:213,Disturbed - Ten Thousand Fists
Disturbed\01-Ten Thousand Fists.mp3
#EXTINF:191,Disturbed - Voices
#EXTINF:226,Disturbed - Just Stop
#EXTINF:202,Disturbed - Guarded
#EXTINF:274,Disturbed - Stupify
The above play lists have been trimmed but the format is similar. Some of the file only have ID3v1 tags hence the missing "#EXTINF:" tag in the playlist file.
Why would the “Disturbed.m3u” playlist work fine on the Fuze but the “60s.m3u” playlist won’t work?
I’ve tried renaming the mp3 files in case there where some illegal characters that the Fuze didn’t like. I’ve also went through and updated all the id3 tags to version 2. Neither helped the problem.
