Default Media Manager for P3

Has anybody tried songbird with the P3? I tried it and it seemed to work perfectly. I mean it recognized it right away when I plugged it in and it synch my music but I realized it wasn't synching all my music just some files. Then I manually loaded the P3 with the MP3 files it didn't load from my disk using Explorer and it played them perfectly. I'm guessing songbird is still not ready for the P3. Has anybody else had this issue? Any suggestions for a media manager that actually works with a P3? Manually loading files is okay but I really prefer using playlists with my music.

I use Media Monkey only for managing and adding playlists to my P2. Otherwise, I just drag and drop files. I use foobar2k for listening on my pc.

Another MediaMonkey fan here. Great for album art, playlists as has been mentioned. I use it for all music syncing. Video files are the only ones I drag and drop.

Has anyone else run into the 400 song limit on playlists?

I just drop mp3's into specific folders under music. My current metal "playlist" is 936 songs and won't work in an actual playlist made by hand or emidio.

Hmmm, 400 song playlists. That must be a Korean thing, since the S9 & D2 are both capped @400 songs on a playlist as well.

It's not bad considering you can make 5 on-the-go playlists, though.

I'm happy to be put right on this, but I don't see the advantage of Media Monkey over WMP for managing and syncing playlists, etc. When I tried MM it took fully 8 hours to index the 1500 or so tracks on my PC and then failed to transfer all the library info from WMP.
WMP itself is very far from perfect and I can understand why people dislike using it, but for the life of me I can't see the big benefit of a different media manager.

Can't help you there- I don't use a media manager.

Could you try changeing the genre tags to 'my metal' or something, then it'd b like a playlist. many programs can mass change tags pretty quick.


Haven't tried songbird, but i may check it out. Mediamonkey only takes a few minutes to index my 4000 or so FLACs - strange it took that long... maybe it just clashed with your PC - MM main advantages are album art works well and it allows to really customize how to sync to your device, including on the fly encoding (which is slow, mind, but handy if you use FLACs)

I don't even go to all that trouble.

I just make folders for various "playlists" then use music browser and goto the folder, then I have all the songs in that folder to play and it's not limited by song count, just system memory limits.
