Default What is the format of M3U playlists?

First off, let me say the sport is very cool. Excellent design and function.

I'm trying to figure out how to get the M3U playlist files formatted properly and transferred from my linux box.

I have a 2Gig sport. Firmware is 1.008

1) Where do M3U files belong? I put them in the Music folder, and the sport seemed to find them but won't play them. So then I looked at my daughter's unit, which is a windows based unit, and saw the Playlist folder, so I tried putting the M3U files there. Sport found them, but again won't play them. That leads to the second question:

2) What is the exact format of the M3U files? Are filenames case sensitive? Does it need complete path names, or is it some shortened relative pathname? i.e. assuming the mp3 or ogg files are in the Music folder, would a M3U line be

/Music/artist/album/trackname1.mp3
/Music/artist/album/trackname2.mp3

or:

artist/album/trackname1.mp3
artist/album/trackname2.mp3

or ??

If someone can answer this that would be great. I'll probably end up writing a perl script that properly formats M3U files it finds on the insignia and would be happy to share once I understand the details.

Thanks for any info!
