    Okay, I have created playlists and added tracks, when veiwed through windows media player they are all there. When I try to play the list on the mci900 only a small percentage of the tracks appear. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi !

    How did you create your playlist ? Seeing it properly in Windows Media player, it suggests that you are pointing to tracks either on your PC harddisk or you might have some tracks with an absolute path ("drive:\folder 1\folder 2...\trackname.mp3") instead of the proper, relative path, like "..\folder 1\folder 2...\trackname.mp3" or "folder 1\folder 2...\trackname.mp3".

    Open your playlist in Notepad and it should be obvious, all track paths that starts with a disk drive letter "D:\" or something like that will not work.

    Cheers !

    Ok, but how did you create the playlists then ?
    And how does one of the "broken" playlists look like when opened in Notepad, i.e. do you or do you not have absolute paths ?

    Cheers !

    Good. Then you have to use Notepad to edit the absolute paths to relative paths and then all should work fine.

    Cheers !
