    Unhappy WinAmp Playlist and PalmAmp... uggh!

    I am a little upset about this. I got everything up and running and working GREAT (with a few snags along the way). BUT, I have a problem. I installed a LAN card on the mp3 box so I could upload my songs via my home network - works better than I thought. But, even though I can get all the songs over, winamp won't import them into it's playlist unless I plug the box up to a monitor and mouse. Any suggestions on how to get winamp to automatically include the new songs in its playlist on every boot? I'm running Win95 and winamp and controlling it through the palmamp on the palmpilot.

    Sorry for the long post,
    matt

    Unhappy

    Here's what i do. I have a ftp/web server in my garage that is plugged into a 10 port hub. When I want to update mp3's I transfer them to the server from my pc. Then on the server I transfer them to the car pc and open the playlist on the car with winamp installed on the server. I add the add the songs I want and save the playlist to the car computer. *** long as the directories of the mp3's are the same it works like a charm.

    Hmmm, I'm not running a server and the mp3's on my main computer are on a different drive letter than the car player. BUT, I have a laptop with all the songs loaded in at the same location as the car's (C:\MP3\). Your idea will work if I create the playlist on the laptop, then copy it over to the car player - agree?

    THANKS!!! Matt

    I use a program called MP3 PlaylistCreator at http://www.sassner.com/mp3 which lets you create a playlist and batch rename ID3 tags & files etc etc.. It also has a feature to save a playlist as being drive independant so it will just look for the file in \MP3s\file.mp3 instead of c:\mp3s\file.mp3 or d:\mp3s\file.mp3.. might help
