How do I select what to sync with WMP?

by leganx / July 1, 2008 6:33 AM PDT

I have a large capacity MP3 player, so I never minded what went in, because it would never be at risk of filling up.

But, I bought a small capacity flash player as it is easier to take to the gym. But now all I want is to sync my music and audiobooks. I dont want to sync all my pictures in my computer. My pictures dont fill my flash player yet but they do take quite a chunk of space.

I have searched through the options but I can't find anything. Anybody has any ideas how it can be done?

Creating Play LIst in Windows Media Player
by GEO2003 / July 9, 2008 6:22 AM PDT

Select library, as you hover over the blue box, you will see a small down arrow, click on it and you will see choices to create play list and create audio list. Haven't use that feture much, but from there you can add the songs you want only and then synchronized them with your player, the list can be modify at will, you can add newones, delete existing songs, depending on the size of your player.

If you have selected WMP as your default picture vierver, the same menu listed above leads you to additional options, if you choose the Library Tab, you can select SELECT FOLDERS TO MONITOR, which shows folders that are currently being track by WMP.

If it automatically added the Pictures and Videos folder, you can unselect those. Or at least the picture folder.

It is better view with MS Photo Galary.
You did not mentioned which OS you are using, But Vista has WMP, WINDOWS MEDIA CENTER, WINDOWS PHOTO GALLERY.


I believe, all 3 are available for download at ms site for xp as well.

Good Luck.
