Forgive me if this is either a very obvious solution or if it has already been discussed (and hopefully resolved). Brain is fried, I've been going mad with this running in circles and whatnot. Here's the situation: I have a large MP3 library on my PC. I have a Nexus One, NOT ROOTED. I have no problem getting music ONTO the device. I'm still figuring out the nooks and crannies of how Media Monkey deals with playlists, but I have a feeling my question may shed some light on that. I DO NOT USE iTUNES. I hate that piece of crap. So here's the question: I'm the kind of guy who will get a mix CD in MP3 form, or just try out an entire album. I hardly ever sit at home and listen to MP3s, much less for the purpose of going through and saying "I like this track" etc. Instead, I put the whole thing onto the N1, I create a playlist, and as songs play on the device, I will sometimes delete them outright or add them to a "Favourites" playlist. That's fine and dandy, except it would be nice to be able to edit the playlist which is stored on the N1 through a music manager like Media Monkey, Winamp, etc. I want to be able to quickly and easily look at what songs I have added to the N1 Favs playlist over the last couple of days, maybe add some stuff from my library that I remembered I want, etc. The issue I am having is... well, I can't do that. I'm not sure what's going on, but I would have thought simply plugging in the N1, seeing the playlists stored as M3U files in a directory and editing them would be fine. But it's not. Half the time the playlists on the device are blank, or they're missing the files I manually added on the N1. Media Monkey has like a "master playlist" menu tree, including "imported m3u files" Once again, many times I've created playlists with stuff in it for the purpose of testing, only to find that when I look at it under the imported tab, it's empty. I recently completely erased all my music on the N1 and have been re-installing it through Media Monkey in order to preserve any tracking of file locations and stuff. I'm oldschool, I like just dropping folders in and stuff, it's faster blablabla. But after awhile, I realized it'd be nice to back up my favs list etc. So I kinda gave in. So that's what's up. I add things to a playlist on the n1, doesn't show up on the computer. OH! Another question before I go: When creating a new playlist on the N1 in media player, where does it store this file? Am I right in thinking somewhere on the main storage area which is inaccessible unless I root the device? And if I did root it, would all of these snafus clear up tout suite? Thanks for your time. Love the N1. LOOOOOOOOOVE!
