AT MY WIT'S END! (playlists for Cowon X7 and Sansa Clip +)

Postby adamk » Sat Feb 16, 2013 4:57 am

I know, I'm sure you've heard it all before, but I really am approaching a state of catalepsy over MM and my own inability to fully understand it. Last year I purchased a Cowon x7 - lovely machine, beautiful sound, my pride and joy. Drawback: I cannot create playlists using MM. I ended up with several files called "Gym" (my playlist name) but they're empty. As my previous machine was an iRiver ihp40 and I had no problems with playlists with that, it was frustrating. I haunted forums for ages, being talked at and talked down at and had cryptic, unexplained advice offered (I still can't undestand MTP v MSC, for instance). There was a way, it turned out: it meant re-loading all my files, opening MM inside the device and running it from there and...oh, using a second bit of software alongside it. It was so arduous and complicated I gave up. Does it really need a degree in computer technology? Anyway, as my playlist is for the gym anyway, I recently bought a Sansa Clip+, much more useful for the environment and....well, what do you know? I can't get playlists to load up onto the machine with this using MM, either.

I've gone back to the forums, I've searched, and so far can only pick up fragments of threads that I still don't understand. My plea is this: can anyone, simply and clearly, tell me how this is done? Creating a playlist is fine, but every time I try to export it over, it comes up empty, for both machines. I am truly beginning to think that MM just isn't up to it, and am more than happy for someone to set me straight. :x

Thanking you in advance.

Well we need more information from you.
Such as,
1. How are you trying to put the playlist on the hand held device.

2. How are you exporting the playlists.

3. What format of playlist does the hand held device need to be able to see it.

Looking at the X7 manual I dont see anything about playlists ...
Where's the db and ini stored
Reporting Bugs
Where tags are stored

I have three Sansas and all sync flawlessly with MM. I ALWAYS auto-snc; the Sansa is set to USB mode MTP, go to Tools>Options>Portable/Audio Devices, find the Sansa and configure it. Works the same whether syncing to internal or external (micro SD card) memory. You have to configure internal and external separately.

Good luck.

You'll need to figure out what Playlist format (M3U, PLA or PLS) your device accepts. Then you go into the Device Profile and see what MediaMonkey syncs (you should upgrade to the latest MediaMonkey 4.1 beta from the Beta Forum and remove the device profile to fix some bugs). In the Supported Formats you can change the Playlist format used. You also have Playlists settings in the Device Profile which may require some trial and error to figure out which settings are required.

The Cowon X7 supports M3U and yet the playlist will have all the music files listed, it shows as empty in the player.

Lets get a fix.

For M3U you have Extended M3U and the basic M3U format and you need to know if Paths need to be absolute or relative.
