Playlist Format?

I have a large music collection with .m3u playlist files spread throughout the folders. On my Archos 5 (6th gen), I just copied the files over to it and then I could select an .m3u file and the music player would play it. I just got a new A70 250GB and I tried to do the same thing, but it doesn't seem to be able to play the .m3u files. In the music player, under "Playlists", it lists them all, but when I select one it just shows as empty. If I use the file browser and select one, it says "Sorry, the player does not support this type of audio file".

Does anyone know what playlist format these devices recognize, or is there a music player app that will play .m3u playlists?

Try the doubletwist app. It was able to read my .m3u playslists under 2.1.

I'v got the same problem. I wanted to create some playlists for my 101.

I'v been busy for a few hours now and can't get any m3u format recognised by the stock media player.

It recognised the file and adds it to the playlists list when you select it it's empty.

Anyone have any luck with m3u files?

Doubletwist does not work either.

What should be the path in the m3u file?

After trying a few dozen programs that claimed to do playlist import/export I finally found one i can live with. At least I can backup my existing playlists to SD

Meridian is a music player that can manage it's own playlists called PlayQ and import and export them to the stock music application of the Archos 101.

Here is a little explanation.

Curious about this app. The link you gave shows how to export to your PC. Does it import from your PC? How does the import to the stock music player work? Just curious if you (or anyone else) has some info on it.

It's not really exporting to the PC it's just exporting the stock playlist to the PlayQ which is stored on the sd card from there you can copy it backup it and do whatever with it.

From the PlayQ you can import the playlist to the stock playlist.
