I am having the same problem. We just purchased this and want to use the playlists to organize the music. Any ideas.
I received this player for Xmas and the one item i cannot figure out is how to create a playlist on the device. I use windows media 10. I can add folders to the device but can never figure out how to add the music to that folder. Any help would be much appreciated.
You must create the playlists in Windows Media Player first before you transfer them to the device. It is not possible to create a playlist on this player on the fly.
I created the playlist, then did a sync to the MP3 player. the playlist did not show just but the tracks showed un All tracks.
With your device plugged into your computer, are you following these instructions? This is the only way to get playlists on your device.
1. Launch Windows Media Player from Windows desktop or Start menu.
2. To transfer files from your computer to your device, click Copy to CD or Device (WMP 9)or
Sync(WMP 10) tab.
3. In the Items to Copy pane, in the drop-down list, click the playlist, category, or other item that you want to copy.
4. Clear the check boxes next to any files you do not want to copy.
5. In the Items on Device pane, in the drop-down list, click the device that you want to copy files
to. i.e. Philips GoGear*.
6. Click the Copy (WMP 9) or Start Sync(WMP 10) button.
Once this is done, you should see your Playlists under the "Music" menu.
I followed the instructions. I have constructed 3 playlists in WMP10. I clicked sync. In the drop down list I clicked the plays list. On the MP3 player, the tracks showed up in all tracks! and no play list "at all" appeared! could it be a problem in my MP3?
Did you specifically click on the playlists to sync? If so, might be a problem with your device.
At this point, I would call them. Your device should still be under warranty. Let everyone know what you find!
i have the same mps3 gogear and i would like to find wher i can print a owners manual to help me figure out how to use
Try following the Phillips link on the customer support list found here.
I have tried all above steps, with no success, also have stumbled upon something on philips faq/site that said to use MusicMatch JukeBox to transfer playlists to the player, with no success their either. This seems like a frustrating feature that never got finished if you ask me. Also, their site has said for the last 4 months that they will release updated firmware for WMP11 after it is out of beta, it has been for just over 2 months, and still nothing from Philips. This company sounds like a joke if you ask me.
Hi...i had the same mp3 gogear and i couldn't add mp3 to playlist...the tracks showed up in all tracks..but my brother found a solution:)
To create a playlist you have to create a folder in Media Player.
I couldn't add tracks to a playlist in Media Player 10, but in Media Player 9 everything works !!!
If you have a same problem, follow the instruction (above by Ron Repking) but in Media Player 9 !!! There is something wrong with Media Playr 10....
Heya...I think I worked something out while trying to solve the problem.
You can create a playlist by creating a new folder on the computer with all of the songs you want in it and naming it 'playlist 1' for example. Put this among the folders of artists that you get when you view the music on the mp3 from the computer.
Then when you use your mp3 and get to the first menu that allows you to choose 'music, recordings etc', go on 'folder view'-->'music'---> then all the folders of artists will be displayed, your 'playlist 1' folder included in the list, so listen to it from there :)
Hope that helps! x
