Haymish, thanks for your suggestion. This seems like it is going to be about the easiest way. May I ask two questions.

First, can all playlists being in the root directory? There was some mention of this in the Archos manual that was confusing.

Second, would you know the keystrokes on the Archos FM Recorder for adding a currently playing song to a playlist. I am blind (I don't know if you are or not), so any specific steps you have would be appreciated. I wonder, if I have more than one playlist, one for rock, pop, opera, etc., and I add a song from Archos, am I going to have a problem of knowing which list it will be going into.

Thanks for anything you can add.

Eric SS

  I think the easiest way to do this is with winamp. It is a free media player and has some fantastic options and plugins. To create a playlist with it just have the mp3 player you are using connected to the computer and navigate to your songs on the player then highlight the songs you want in the playlist and right click and select add to winamp playlist or add the files individually and then click save from within winamp and save the m3u or pls file onto your player and click on that file and your playlist will fire up.

  You need to use notepad, as a playlist is just a text file, with the extension of .M3U.
  Then you select a list of music to be played,
  Then you use "send to" in the applications menu, and then you choose "clipboard as name", if you have that option.
  paste it into the text file and remove the lines that you don't want played.
  You will want to remove the path names, e.g.,
  c:\my documents\my music\
  Notepad's "search and replace" works well for that.
  Control + H calls up that feature.

  I thought I had read something about being able to create play lists in an editor.

  Can anyone point me to that or correct me if I misunderstood.
