Playlist Instructions Not Working

Dear Sandisk

 

I wrote a playlist (attached) file with Notepad , and using the instructions found here:

https://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/224/kw/M3u

and Option 2: Manually creating M3U Playlist

 

I placed the playlist inside the "music" folder

I copied the mp3 file to "music" folder as well

I disconnected the player

The player rebooted

Using the player I went into the Music folder, then to the Playlist folder and my m3U file was listed.  I selected it but it said the list was empty.

 

The playlist file contained three lines: #EXTM3U, the path/name of the file and one extra blank line, lost in the insert code function of this post

 

#EXTM3U
1\JadeDragonCup.mp3

 

I tested the MP3 file and it does play

 

At a loss to know what to do

 

Thanks and wait to hear

Maybe take a look at the instructions and all the helpful replies in this recent discussion in the SanDisk Forum.

In your example, maybe try this replacement text:

\Music\Subfolder Name\JadeDragonCup.mp3

Oh dear

This is a very poor response

Please can you advise if you are a Sandisk employee or a volunteer answering technical questions.

Wait to hear

Oh Wow. I am not a SanDisk employee. Just an average SanDisk user hoping to help other SanDisk users with problems with their devices.

The response I gave you above cited my two personal favorite solutions to composing playlists for SanDisk players.

1. Try using the shareware software mp3tag to save m3u playlists directly to the player.

2. Try using the batchfile method to create m3u playlists for a collection of subfolders directly on the player.

 

The most typical reasons these two suggestions will be challenging is if you are using a Mac computer to manage your player.

(It is really challenging to use a Mac text editor to compose a m3u text file due to incompatible line endings.)
