Can I create a playlist from synced songs not in the library

Post by Pretzel lover » Sat Mar 31, 2018 6:41 pm

Latest version MM4 Gold Win7 64 bit

Wasn't able to have my iPOD playlist connect to the music files in MM library so synced iPOD to phone with MM and downloaded all 1000 songs onto iPhone 5 (ios 10.x) from iPOD.

MM seems to need these songs in it's own library to make a playlist on the iPhone? I can see the songs on the phone but can't drag them or send them to a playlist within MM.

How can I create a playlist on the Phone with these 1000 songs? Only way I can figure is to add one song at a time on the phone itself.

Hope that makes sense...

Hi,
No, as playlists in MMW are based on tracks that are in the library and in order to create accurate playlist on devices tracks needs to be in library.

Ok, got the songs added to the library but I sync the songs to the phone instead of the playlist, so there’s no playlist on the phone (only songs).

Before I mess things up further, do I drag the playlist into the phone, or, delete songs from phone and Then drag in the playlist and it adds back the songs.

Thanks!

Click on Connected device in tree and in Options what to sync select playlists you want on device.
