Re: How to make a playlist using a Mac

I followed your directions.  It didn't show up in a nice list like you showed .  I will still be trying to get this to work

Re: How to make a playlist using a Mac

Hi. When I paste the text edit file it doesn't look like yours. It looks like this: 

 

#EXTM3U

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>Major Version</key><integer>1</integer>
<key>Minor Version</key><integer>1</integer>
<key>Date</key><date>2019-04-13T01:12:16Z</date>
<key>Application Version</key><string>12.9.4.94</string>
<key>Features</key><integer>5</integer>
<key>Music Folder</key><string>file:///Users/xx/Music/iTunes/iTunes%20Media/</string>
<key>Library Persistent ID</key><string>B07E87AB5619B5F6</string>
<key>Tracks</key>
<dict>

 

When opening the xml file on my desktop, which app do I use to open it? I used text edit and got the above.   Thanks much!

 

Pete

Maybe take a look at the messages in this related topic on the SanDisk Forum.

Re: How to make a playlist using a Mac

Hello, I still like to check into this Forum a few times a week to see what's happening.....

 

From your short comment, I think you are seeing some dot-underscore "._" files. These are created by Mac OSX when copying files to a FAT32 drive.  I like to use the OSX app "HiM" to delete these files as the last step in file management with my Clip Sport or Clip Jam.  Here is a weblink to read about the HiM App.

As for your question about Playlists, maybe take a look at my comments in this message link on this Forum.
