    The HiSuite doesn't seem to have a music folder to organize playlist.
    I have a lot of music playlist in my itunes / other softwares etc. The music transfers fine via drag and drop or other softwares but the playlist never seems to get created in the Huawei phone.
    any workaround ? Great phone but this really hurts..

    I tried drag n drop all kinds of playlist format, nothing worked.

    I use windows media player to create playlists on the computer, and then when I copy paste the wpl file to my samsung s8, the phone recognizes and converts it. The downside though is that it creates another problem all together.

    I am still trying to figure out how to account for this, cuz I really really REALLY REALLY do not want to have to create playlists one the phone.

    If you want to sync audio files (playlists) from a PC to Android, there are two ways I know that work.

    1) Use iSyncr for your Windows PC or Mac & Android from JRT Studio. You also need iTunes if you're on Windows. (I have used this method for 3+ years with Windows 7)
    • Install the helper program on the computer from their website www.jrtstudio.com and Install the companion Android app from the Play Store.
    • In iTunes, set up your playlist with a name and ordering that you want. (note that the free version of iSyncr has a 100 song limit per playlist. I have a podcast playlist with 50+ episodes plus various albums and audiobooks synced)
    • For WiFi sync, open the app on the phone and use it to connect to the WiFi enabled computer. Follow instructions from there until you see the iSyncr program pop up.
    • For USB sync, (what I use since my desktop doesn't have WiFi.)
      -Connect the phone to the PC with a USB data cable (with File Transfer enabled on the phone) and wait until you see the windows pop up to show that the phone is connected as a drive.
      -From the System Tray (I am on Windows 7, 10 works the same, dunno about Macs) right click on the iSyncr icon and you should see your phone's name. (mine is 'Pixel XL') Left-click on the phone name to start the iSyncr Windows program. If you only see 'Where's my USB device' click that message to go to the JRT website for help. You may need Android drivers installed on the PC.

    • When the iSyncr Windows program starts, it will scan your iTunes library for playlists and sync just the playcounts for audio in playlists that you previously synced. It may take a minute.
    • After a short wait, you will see a bunch of playlists with checkboxes show in iSyncr. Check the ones you want to sync, uncheck what you do not want, then click 'Sync'. (Click Exit to transfer nothing.)

    • If the checkbox to 'Remove Music Not In These Lists' is NOT checked, then iSyncr will NOT delete any playlists you uncheck here. I would keep it checked so you don't fill up the phone with unwanted music.
    • When you click 'Sync' you will see iSyncr delete the selected playlists (.m3u files) from the phone (the playcounts were already synced) and it will copy the selected playlists as you have edited them on the PC to the phone.
    • If you had a Jogging Playlist with 50 songs in it, and deleted 8 songs and added 15, it would delete the 8 songs from the phone and add the 15 new ones to what is already on the phone for the playlist. The playlist and music in it will be ordered as you have it set in iTunes.
    • Most Android audio players can scan the phone for the new playlists (.m3u files) in the root 'syncr' folder and load the music in them. I use Rocket Player, also from JRT, which knows to look there. Google Play Music finds the playlist, so do others. You may have to go into your player's settings to have it (A) look in the root sdcard/syncr/ folder for music and playlists, and (B) scan music in phone folders either on app launch or when you need it to.


    You can also use (free) Doubletwist Sync for Windows and for Android. Doubletwist is the OG way to sync iTunes media to your Android phone from a PC. I didn't use it for some reason (either it used to be a paid app years ago, or I had trouble getting it to work for me back in the day (probably an Android driver issue) and used iSyncr instead.

    Note that since I am syncing the same playlist over and over again, Doubletwist for Android seems to only know what the original playlist contents are, and does not seem to update the playlist when I re-sync. I tried deleting Doubletwist's cache and data from the app but it still thinks I have year old files in the playlist.

    I hope this helps. It worked for me on my Sony Xperia Z3 (Android 5 & 6), Nexus 6p (Android 6 & 7) and my Pixel XL (Android 8 & 9).

    All of that above is not specifically for the P20 lite. You may want to check settings in the player app to see if it can scan the phone folder where your playlist / music is.

    The OG way to make a portable album with playlist was to copy music to a PC folder, make an M3u playlist saved in the folder, and just copy the folder to the new computer. You should be able to save the folder in your sdcard/music/ phone file structure and have your phone scan for new music.

    I don't know how the Huawei PC software works, but if it's like iSyncr (scanning and syncing iTunes library) then double check if the Huawei player can scan specific phone folders, or try iSyncr.
