    I just synced my music from kies to my SIII and it has all the music but no playlists. I even selected each playlist and hit sync and it still doesn't work? Is this a normal problem and if so, what are alternatives, if any?

    Are you using Kies to sync? I usually create my playlists on my PC and export them as .m3u files

    Yeah I'm using Kies. What exactly does that mean? Can I just put all my playlists in folders and sync the folders to my phone somehow?

    I use a freeware application called Playlist Creator to create .m3u files and then I just copy them to the phone's internal storage into a folder called playlists. I never did like Kies much.

    I've been having the same issue with Kies for the last two versions or so. Worked great when I first used it.

    I've even gone as far as trying to delete all music form the phone and syncing again, and also selecting playlists manually.

    Sucks...

    I took lunatic59's advice. Just saved all my playlists from iTunes as m3u files and used kies to drag the folder to my phone worked perfectly and was a quick fix
