The option to not include the source folder in the playlist name would be great. Right now, I've got folders inside folders, so I use your "Grandparent - Parent - Folder" playlist naming scheme, but then all the playlist file names start with MUSIC, and the rest of the information gets buried on the right. Choosing the "Parent - Folder" playlist naming scheme instead doesn't provide a solution, since MUSIC still appears for the folders without grandparents.


Yes, I've also run into this myself. It will be fixed in the next update.

One playlist entry shows "Empty" when it's not

At least that's what it seems to me. I use AutoM3U to create playlists for my Clip. The music is organized this way on the Clip:

 

\MUSIC\folders\mp3 files under each folder

 

When using the Clip to select and play music, all the playlists (with names of the folders) contain their mp3 files except one which displays as "Empty". I've looked at the contents of the clip on my computer and everything seems to be where it should be including the mp3 files under the supposedly empty playlist-folder. As a clue, that empty playlist-folder is the last folder (and files beneath it) that I put on the clip.

 

Any ideas?

Re: Automatically generate playlists for folders

Hi Guys,

 

I am sorry if my question is so basic. I have a Sansa clip 8 GB.

I used this nice utility AutoM3U.exe, I gave him the root directory of my music folder and asked him to include sub folders.

It created one m3u8 file for each folder and one for the root folder which contains all the sub folders inside.

 

My question:

How do I move this playlist to my Sansa clip? Should I drag the music folder with all the mp3 and m3u8 files?

It doesn’t work – the playlist section in the Sansa player stays empty.

I also tried to drag only the m3u8 files to the playlist directory and it didn’t help.

 

Your help is really appreciated

Elias, great program, no more chaos on my clip. However, it does not work with folders that are placed in the Audiobooks folder. If I put my audiobboks in the music folder solves the problem. Also, the original playlist folder disappeared from my Clip, is this normal?

 

Edit: audiobooks tagged as audiobook won't work, whether placed in the Music folder or the Audiobooks folder, audiobooks not tagged as audiobook will work if placed in the Music folder, but not when placed in the Audiobooks folder.

It's not Elias' program.  For some reason the Clip and Fuze just don't support audiobooks in playlists.

Re: Automatically generate playlists for folders

This is great, I was about to write my own program when I came acorss AutoM3U. It seems to not work for me. The playlists are created and when I look at the songs on the CLIP it just says empty. I have a SanDisk Sansa Clip 2 GB MP3 Player (Blue) with the latest firmware (2.01.32A). Anyone else had this problem?

 

My settings I have are...

 

USB Mode: MSC

Don't use the custom folder option, save it to the source folder
