Importing Playlists

Post by Anthony Leonard » Thu Mar 14, 2013 6:04 pm


I have a bug in MediaMonkey Windows 8 App version when trying to import a .m3u playlist that was saved with media player. When I use the open file and select my playlist I get a popup saying

Application needs access rights to folder with tracks from imported playlist ..E\Elton john.
Click on continue button and select this folder, please

I follow the path to the folder, select it and click OK, the same popup keeps coming back.

I don't understand, I can play all these tracks in MediaMonkey individually or as an Album.
What permissions are missing ?. The folder has everyone read\write access, how do I fix that ?

Also it would be nice if the playlists created in MediaMonkey were saved as files,
also if we could drag a folder or specify a folder to be used to create a new playlist that would be great.

Thanks in advance, and thanks for this great windows 8 app.

Access to folder is needed because of restrictions of metro applications. Are you sure paths to tracks are correct in m3u file ?
