    Default Re: Using KIES to get Itunes Playlists to show up?

    How do you transfer the m3u file with a mac? I don't see a way to transfer generic files using KIES on the mac. I can transfer media, calendar, etc. But I can't figure out how to transfer the m3u files. I could use dropbox, but that seems like a total PITA. Wish you could just drop and drag.

    Its funny - under the MTP setting, my phone says to use android filetransfer but that is not supported for S3. Surely, there is a way to transfer files from my desktop to my phone and I'm just missing it?

    Here is my workaround to see music playlists and photo albums on a Samsung Ace II x...

    Music - Physical Files and Playlists from iTunes
    (note: the only downside I can see with this solution is that multiple physical files exist if the same song is in multiple playlists)

    1. Connect phone to PC (connect as MTP)
    2. Launch iTunes and click on the Playlist you want
    3. Create a folder Samsung Music on C: or on an external Hard Drive.
    4. Create a folder called yourplaylistnamefromiTunes within Samsung Music folder
    5. In iTunes, select all the songs in the respective playlist and COPY
    6. Go to Samsung Music/yourplaylistnamefromiTunes and PASTE
    7. COPY yourplaylistnamefromiTunes
    8. Go to My Computer/GT-S7560M/Card/Media and PASTE
    9. Go to Samsung phone and touch Music Player
    10. On the Menu Bar scroll to FOLDERS
    11. Locate the yourplaylistnamefromiTunes folder.
    12. Touch and hold yourplaylistnamefromiTunes
    13. Touch Add to playlist and then +Create playlist. Rename the Samsung default My playlist 001 to yourplaylistnamefromiTunes and touch OK

    You are done. You now have a folder and a playlist called yourplaylistnamefromiTunes on your Samsung phone.
    All of the physical files (including duplicates, triplicates ...) can be seen in Kies, but not the playlists or albums. Do not sync Multimedia in Kies or you will end up with duplicates. The only thing Kies seems useful for is to sync Outlook and even then you need to be careful to select only the current folders (the Kies default is to include Archive folders).


    Photos - Physical Files and Albums
    (note: the only downside I can see with this solution is that multiple physical files exist if the same photo is in multiple albums)


    1. Connect phone to PC (connect as MTP)
    2. Locate the respective photo folder on C: or your external Hard Drive and COPY
    3. Go to My Computer/GT-S7560M/Card/DCIM and PASTE

    Videos - Physical Files and Albums
    (note: the only downside I can see with this solution is that multiple physical files exist if the same photo is in multiple albums)


    1. Connect phone to PC (connect as MTP)
    2. Go to My Computer/GT-S7560M/Card/DCIM and create a folder called Video
    3. Locate the respective video folder on C: or your external Hard Drive and COPY
    4. Go to My Computer/GT-S7560M/Card/DCIM/Video and PASTE

    Well I joined this forum just to show my work around. I'm using a Mac by the way...Anyway, the trick I used was to first go into iTunes and select the playlist I want to transfer. Then select all the songs in the playlist and change the genre to something unique like "123xyz" for example. Then select all the files in the playlist again and hit copy. Now go into Kies and create a new playlist. Paste the files into the new playlist you created. This is where I ran into trouble. If you right click on the playlist in Kies and hit "Transfer to Device", the files within the playlist will transfer but they will not be organized into a playlist on the phone. It will just put them all in your phone's music library. Instead, right click on the playlist and hit "Transfer to Device" as usual, but when it's completed, open up the music player on the Galaxy S3, press the menu button on the phone's face, and go to Settings. Under Music Menu, make sure Genres has a check mark next to it. Press done at the top of the screen then hit back to return to the music player. Select Genres at the top of the screen then scroll down (or search if you have a lot of different Genres) until you find "123xyz" or whatever you tagged your playlist's songs with, then press the menu button and hit Add to playlist, then Select all, then Done, then Create playlist, and you're done!

    The only problem with this method is that if you absolutely need genre tags then you're out of luck. I tried using other fields to organize the files like the Comments section and BPM, but the limited search capabilities on the Galaxy S3's music player won't filter those out in order to separate them into playlists. You may have better luck using Windows as there are tools available for this kind of thing. I also had to use this work around instead of just exporting the playlist from iTunes into an M3U file and editing the file paths in TextEdit because I couldn't get the Galaxy S3 to recognize anything I put into the Playlist folder on the device itself. Even after changing the file extension to ".pla"! So frustrating, but since I don't care about genres this is the best and easiest solution I've discovered so far. I hope a better one comes soon...
