Re: Creating playlists on a Mac without using iTunes

Here is one idea that involves the use of VLC player software for Mac.

Available at this web-link:   http://get.videolan.org/vlc/2.2.1/macosx/vlc-2.2.1.dmg

 

1. On your device, create a sub-folder of music files under the MUSIC folder.

 

2. Point VLC to that new music sub-folder on your device. Load the music files into the playlist window.

 

3. Follow the instructions at this web-link and save a m3u playlist inside that music sub-folder on your device.

Maybe you could report back here and a few other SanDisk Form members will provide helpful advice?

Re: Creating playlists on a Mac without using iTunes

There is a similar method using an OSX version of the popular software mp3tag. (uses an embedded version of WINE).

1. On your device, create a sub-folder of music files under the MUSIC folder.

 

2. Point mp3tag to that new music sub-folder on your device. Load the music files into the playlist window.

 

3. Save a m3u playlist inside that music sub-folder on your device.
