Default playlist help

So i finally went out and purchased an 80gb zune last night. The problem I am having is that I have roughly 150gb of music. So i spent the morning transfering over music to the zune that I want on it. Now i want to make playlists, but it seems the only way to make playlists is from my entire collection, not just the collection on my zune. Is this correct? or is there another way to do it? I don't want to have to go thru my entire collection again to make a variety of playlists for all the different needs I have. I want to just go thru the music I have already selected and put on the zune. Maybe there is a different type of software to use with the zune that would allow me to do this?

Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thx

Bigunn

The only software that works for making playlists on a Zune is the Zune Marketplace software. That makes playlists from your collection, not the files on the Zune. No workarounds for that I've ever heard about.

I think you are stuck. You can create playlists using WMP11, save as a .wpl and Zune software can see that if you include that location in your Zune library. The problem is, how do you get Windows to see you Zune collection (the stuff on the devide, outside of Zune software)? There are hacks to make WP7 appear as a "mass storage device" and be visible. All this is probably far more trouble than just creating the playlists you want in Zune Software and syncing them (just like WMP11, songs already on your device are not duplicated). I hope that your desired playlists and the songs you picked to sync already largely match each other---then it is not really all that much of a hassle to sync-up everything the first time.
