4.6.0.190 here and yes, I can create a new playlist. Select a song first then create the list.

Work for you?

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)?


thanks.

So I added my playlist from winamp just as i described, but i opened it on wordpad on my computer and changed somethings around:

I changed:

\Blackberry\music\T.I. - 56 Barz (Intro).mp3

to:

\SDCard\Blackberry\music\T.I. - 56 Barz (Intro).mp3

for every song and now it works. anyone know if there is a way to set winamp to automatically create the playlist like this?

thanks

Just out of curiosity, what prompted you to add the "\SDCard" prefix to your playlist names? Is there some documentation somewhere?

Has anyone tried any other media players (WMP, MusicMatch, Real, etc)?

I have dozens of playlists and 16GB worth of music to download to SD card since I want the Blackberry to replace my current MP3 player.

Thx,
H.

What I did differently with my 2000+ songs is:

1. I had all my music in folders under \Blackberry\Music.

2. I enabled the Mass Storage Support under Options\Memory.

3. I created blank playlists in the Winamp library under Playlists.

4. I did not use the "Portables" option in Winamp but went to the section below that for "Devices" where I see my Media card there as Drive G. (Your drive letter may be different)

5. I opened up my music folder on Drive G and then used drag and drop from there to the new blank playlist.

6. I created as many different playlists like that as I wanted.

7. Next, I will drag and drop a single playlist from the library to the Playlist Editor.

8. From there I choose File - Save Playlist.

9. I then save that playlist out to Drive G in the root of my Music folder.

10. Repeat for all the new playlists I created.

All Done. All my playlists work on the Bold. I have not done any editing of the playlist with a text editor.

Hope that helps.

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.
