I use foobar to manage my music and create playlists for use on different machines and hardware players. When i save playlists in m3u format which is what my hardware player supports (mede8er600x3d) foobar 2000 saves them with the drive letter which does not work in mede8er.

Here is an example, both playlists play in foobar 2000

This works in mede8er

../../mp3/Electronic/Nightmares on Wax/Mind Elevation CD1 (2002)/12. Mirrorball.mp3
../../mp3/Electronic/Anubian Lights/Let Not The Flame Die Out (1998)/04. One Eye To The Sky.mp3

This does not work in mede8er and is what i get when foobar saves a playlist.

Z:\music\mp3\Electronic\Nightmares on Wax\Mind Elevation CD1 (2002)\12. Mirrorball.mp3
Z:\music\mp3\Electronic\Anubian Lights\Let Not The Flame Die Out (1998)\04. One Eye To The Sky.mp3


How do i get foobar to save my playlists as in the first example?

For information my playlists are all stored in the following path

Z:\music\playlists\M3U

install foo_utils > http://foosion.foobar2000.org/components/?id=utils

file>preferences>tools>text tools. leave the header and footer blank. in the body put...

CODE
$replace(%path%,Z:\music,../..,\,/)$crlf()


now add all tracks to playlist, hit ctrl-a to highlight all files. now right click and select legacy commands (unsorted)>save text. when the save text dialog pops make sure you select all files from the save as type drop down box. you can now save where you like.

you can now save where you like.

...and also in the M3U format by putting the desired filename plus extension into quotation marks:

CODE
"Electronic.m3u"
