With 2000+ songs, creating playlists on the Bold itself was a hassle. Now I connect the Bold to my PC and use WinAmp to create the Playlist and then do a Save Playlist from within WinAmp and save it to the root of the Music folder. Works like a champ.
The winamp method described works, but not if my music is stored in a different folder.
I have a SD card and I want my music stored on the SD card under \Blackberry\music
I want my playlists stored on the card under \Blackberry\playlists, but im fine if the playlists have to be stored somewhere else. mostly i just want the music files in the music folder.
when i try to do this on winamp, it stores everything where i want to, but when i go to play the playlist on the phone, nothing works. i can goto "Show Playlist" on the phone and see all the songs, but it just skips right over all of them when i try to play. is there any simple way around this? also are there any other programs that allow me to easily create playlists and store them on the bold as i want (besides the media manager that came with the phone)?
Media Jukebox works perfectly for creating playlists on a desktop and transferring to Blackberry 4.6 OS. After plugging in Blackberry, it recognized as a device. All I did was click on the playlists I wanted to sync and let it download overnight. In the morning, all 16GB downloaded with playlists intact. No need to use the Desktop Media Manager that comes with Blackberry.
One more gadget eliminated from my life now that iPod no longer needed. Will see how many hours of playback I get from a single battery charge with all the wireless options turned off.
I added the \SDCard because I created a playlist on the bold itself. then i connected it to my computer with Mass Storage and opened the m3u in wordpad. When I looked at that, it was almost the same format except there was File:\\\SDCard\Blackberry..... and there were % for spaces. instead of changing everything to look like this plalist, i just tried adding the SDCard part and it workd.
I'm going to try the other methods above to see how that plays out. thanks.
