Does anybody knows how to create a playlist?
Songbird creates and transfer a m3u file but my player doesn't play it. Can anybody post a valid playlist?
I can create it on windows xp, without songbird, but I need to know which is the format

Many thanks in advance

Hi,

The supported formats are MP3, WAV, WMA

For creating playlists there are various FAQ´s here http://www.philips.co.uk/c/mp3-and-mp4-players/gogear-raga-2-gb-sa4rga02kf_12/prd/;jsessionid=65089B474CA1764999DEFE0D0AA6284C.app10 2-drp1?t=support#rdy

I am able to create a playlist in songbird and use it on the PC. The problem is when I transfer the playlist on the mp3player: it doesn't recognize it and don't play it

Because M3U is not supported, try one of the corresponding file formats, MP3,WMA or WAV

so I have to rename the playlist file from m3u in mp3?

Or you can use a converting programm ( look around on google and there are many) or:

A simple method that requires no special software:
•Open the M3U file with Media Player (or add all your M3U files to a single playlist)
•Select the "File" menu that normally appears on the screen
•Select "Save As"
•Choose the destination folder that you created previously
•Click "Save"

If the manipulation was done correctly, a standard MP3 file will be created now. You only have to repeat the operation as many times as necessary for the full list M3U.

No, sorry but I can't understand. A playlist is a text file with links to mp3 files.
A m3u file is like this:
../Music/09 Van Halen-A Different Kind Of Truth/01 - Tattoo.mp3
../Music/09 Van Halen-A Different Kind Of Truth/02 - She's The Woman.mp3
../Music/09 Van Halen-A Different Kind Of Truth/03 - You And Your Blues.mp3
../Music/09 Van Halen-A Different Kind Of Truth/04 - China Town.mp3
../Music/09 Van Halen-A Different Kind Of Truth/05 - Blood And Fire.mp3
../Music/09 Van Halen-A Different Kind Of Truth/06 - Bullethead.mp3
../Music/09 Van Halen-A Different Kind Of Truth/07 - As Is.mp3
../Music/09 Van Halen-A Different Kind Of Truth/08 - Honeybabysweetiedoll.mp3
../Music/09 Van Halen-A Different Kind Of Truth/09 - The Trouble With Never.mp3
../Music/09 Van Halen-A Different Kind Of Truth/10 - Outta Space.mp3
../Music/09 Van Halen-A Different Kind Of Truth/11 - Stay Frosty.mp3
../Music/09 Van Halen-A Different Kind Of Truth/12 - Big River.mp3
../Music/09 Van Halen-A Different Kind Of Truth/13 - Beats Workin'.mp3

I already have these files no the mp3player. I only would like to play some or other song, just like a compilation. This is a playlist

Please describe step by step how you create a playlist in songbird, to see if you are doing something wrong there

OK, I have a folder on my PC called PHILIPS_MP3Player whic is sincronized with my mp3 player device

- I use the + to create a playlist
- I rename it
- I select and drag music files in the playlist created
- I select and drag this playlist in to the PHILIPS Mp3player (it is a m3u file)
- I disconnect the device

- On the device, I select "Folder View"
- I see there is a folder called "Playlist", which contain the file playlist.m3u
- I select it, but it doesn't play on the mp3 player, I got the message "File Format not supported".

This is what I do

Hi,

Seems you are right. Was able to test this and see it also... Now I have a doubt knowing that the 3 series did not support Playlist and thought these ones were doing so.

Let me check over the weekend and I come back to you ok.

09-14-2012, 12:49 PM
OK, Thanks

I don't know why Philips write something on the manuals, and it isn't working......

I'm very unhappy with this device: radio recording is awful, playlist doesn't work .....

Let's see

You cannot play a PLAYLIST from Folder View. If you navigate the MP3 player to MUSIC and then select PLAYLIST is will work. This player does seem to support m3u playlist but you cannot use them in Folder view.

Yes, Alex Silver is right.
M3U playlist is the supported playlist format for GoGears. Playlist cannot be opened in the Folder overview. But its presence there shows you have successfully transferred your playlist.
To use the playlist in your player, please go to [Music] > [ Playlists] and then select the playlist you hv transferred.

Hope this helps.

Well... another issue with playlists.
In this way my mp3player read and play the m3u, but I found that only the first track is played. At the end of the 1st track, it starts again with number 1, for playing track 2 you have to select the next song....
Can anyone try?

Thanks

In the settings menu make sure you do not have REPEAT turned on.

These cannot be removed. These lists are created by the player.

Well, I don't know if it depends on the filename or what else, but I still have problems.
Sometimes play only the first track, and it seems that in the playlist I have repeated many times the first file

Delete all the playlistes you have and make a new one with 3 songs and see if that works.

jazzrock71
09-22-2012, 10:03 PM
well... first 3 tracks of playlist sounds ok, then the 4th track isn't played, and 3rd track is repeated...

Jazzrock I am very sorry you bought a RAGA SA4 series because they are covered up with problems that to my knowledge have never been repaired. My RAGA SA4 series is just basically destroyed because the songbird doesn't recognize the device. I tried to do a factory restore, which deletes everything first and after that it won't connect so you can't reinstall anything.

BUT before it got messed up I made separate files for different music.

IT IS SO SIMPLE, NOBODY IS THINKING.

Plug in your GOGEAR,
go to C:/GOGEAR,
open the device,
you should see files (like MUSIC, SETTINGS) (and .sys .ini icons that you SHOULD NOT TOUCH),
CLICK on the NEW FOLDER button at the top of the window, just like any other windows file you keep to separate photos or documents,
GIVE IT A NAME,
then just drop the songs into that file - it's not a 'playlist' per se, but you can keep songs in separate FILE FOLDERS and play music separately in those folders.

When open your device you should be able to go up and down to get to the settings file and your newly created file should be there too.
