I asked about this subject regarding a solution to create playlists for media, notably music files for an external drive plugged into the Oppo 103 via USB on the "other" BD forum and figured I'd also try here. I've spent time searching through various forums but haven't found a real solution.
I know how to use the Oppo's clunky playlist function in the on screen media menu (remote's Green button adds files in order of selection to create ONE playlist) but I have an external drive with literally thousands of individual WAV files and the Oppo has no problem reading the drive and playing the files.... but I want to make multiple playlists ideally on my PC where it's easier to drag, drop and arrange numerous files say, of various ambient songs, another playlist of soundtrack music, another one of hard rock, and so on. Basically like anyone can do in any basic media player like iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc.
I thought I could just copy the file that the Oppo player writes it's playlist to and edit it in notepad to at least tediously add, link and arrange the files to a custom playlist but the Oppo must write and save that file internally on the player's HD instead of on my external drive's "Oppo" folder the player creates when you first access it. I don't even know what type of doc the Playlist file is to create one from scratch.
It was suggested to make CUE playlists so I fiddled around with CUE Master today to try and put together a test playlist but it couldn't accept a file over 6MB w/drag n' dropping. No good as I'm dealing with 16-bit @ 44,100Hz WAV files. Even more muddled results using the "Import/Scan" feature (clumped together files into 30+ minute groups).
It seems like such a simple thing, I'm a bit floored that as versatile as the Oppo players are, importing and editing Playlists doesn't appear to be a doable option. Even an iPad/iPhone App as part of or separate from the Oppo Media Control App that could approximate dragging and dropping files into multiple playlists on a USB-connected Hard Drive to the Oppo player similar to what can be done with iTunes would be a huge step.
