Arrow Right for the life of me, i can't figure out how to make playlists with winamp

i use winamp to manage music on my micro sd card. i'd like to import my winamp playlists to the card, how can i do that? i'd like them to be found in playlist catalogue menu.

there's a gazillion different tutorials on the net and i'm ridiculously confused. any help, guys?

Would this help you?

In your case though, you would use the SD card's Music folder instead of the player's in Step #3.

I've created numerous playlists for my Sansa players using Winamp, but to be honest I haven't tried them using Rockbox. I assume they would work in that too, but not having tested them I can't say 100%.

hey, tapeworm.

i've had success importing my winamp playlists via right-clicking playlists and sending to memory card (after posting this thread ).

my question is, do you know how can i put these playlists inside the playlist catalogue menu?

If they're .m3u format playlists, Rockbox (I think) should list them there. I don't have a player with both Rockbox and playlists both on them at the moment to confirm that, but maybe someone else will jump in and add some insight.

To update, I got a chance to check this out and no, the .m3u format playlists created (and show and play correctly in the OF) do not show in the playlist catalogue in Rockbox.

In consulting the Rockbox manual, I find:

Quote:
Note: All playlists in the Playlist catalogue are stored by default in the /Playlists directory in the root of your player’s disk and playlists stored in other locations are not included in the catalogue. It is however possible to move existing playlists there (see section 4.1.2).
I know in the OF, .m3u playlists should be placed in the Music folder (alongside the folders/files contained in the playlist). Apparently this is different in Rockbox and must be placed in the /Playlists folder.

Haven't had a chance to check this out yet myself, but maybe you could give it a try and post back with your results.
