    Wireless Syncing issue.

    I was able to discover my android device easy enough with the Desktop Winamp Application. The trouble is, when i go to 'Sync,' it wants to move my entire Music collection to my device. I don't want it to do this.

    On the desktop application, you can select options from the top row menu, then down to Preferences. Within this, you can select your device under portables. This provides you with four tabs, Sync-AutoFill-Transcoding-View.

    From sync and autofill, you can manipulate the actions of sync and autofill when you right click on your device and select the respective feature. This is found in the right pane of the main winamp application, under portables, right click and you have the option to sync or autofill.

    I have a lot of music, some of it, just completes the album. It's quite large, larger than 14gbs. Roughly what can fit on my Micro SD card in my phone.

    I have a favorite, playlist.

    From the Sync tab, you can select Update Selected Playlists Only, Fill the radial, check the playlist from the box. Close.

    Right click on my device, sync.

    There's music on your device
    Leav it alone? Delete it? Copy to local Media Library?

    Preferably, I'd like to leave it alone because it's my work around for this issue at the moment, but, I've tried delete it too.

    You can expand more and see all of the 5k+ songs it's dripping to move over to my phone.

    I've been bold and clicked ok anyway, only for it to tell me
    You poor stupid smuck, there isn't enough room on your device, but, I've squeezed as much as possible on there, here it is, all queued up, waiting for transfer.

    Much to my dismay, but, probably for my own safety, i can't stop the transfers. So i turn my phone off.

    Now, I've restarted the application after making these changes.
    Restarted the phone, heck, I even restarted the computer, because I sleep at night.

    No change.

    I'm going to post this on the winamp forums too, but, they seem to be down.

    Any advice, slights insinuating ambiguity to my sexual preferences, or similar pains are ok.

    I had the same issue, just figured it out. Right click on the device name in winamp on the computer, got to preferences. On the Sync Tab, scroll down! there are more options under the playlists, one of them is "library sync". Unselect this option. Worked fine for me after this!!

    I know I am extra late but I hope somebody can answer this:
    When I go to android preferences, and unselectsync all media library, and select only specific playlists to sync, it won't save the preferences. when I open it back up the preferences are how they were originally.
