Lanman! THANK YOU! The key was having a folder named "playlist" as you listed above. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!Here's my current configuration.
I have a 32 GB HP thumbdrive plugged into the usb port in the center console.
My plalists are in a folder called "playlist" on the thumbdrive.
My plalists are in the .m3u format. eg. playlistname.m3u
To access the playlists I select the thumbdrive via the iDrive menu and then navigate to the playlists menu option. When I click on the playlists icon I can see a list of the playlists that I have in the "playlist" folder.
Audiobooks?Does anyone know how to create a playlist on a USB drive to be recognized on a 550 USB port? I can put the music in folders on the USB drive and play the music, but I would like to put them in a playlist, so I can change the order. Thanks.
iDrive can handle it. I have about 100 playlists on my iPod Nano connected via the USB port in the console compartment. Works fine.Hi, the problem isn't migrating playlists from iTunes to the USB drive, there are many apps that do that and take care of the paths, etc. The problem seems to be that iDrive has a limit to how many playlists it can handle. Would be interesting to know if someone has been able to use more than 30+ playlists.
Your Nano is handling the playlists. The issue is with playlists on a USB drive.iDrive can handle it. I have about 100 playlists on my iPod Nano connected via the USB port in the console compartment. Works fine.
