    Hi guys, I have Windows Media Player (version 6.4.09) and after I made a bunch of MP3s and put them in a folder on my desktop, I have to select *each* one to play.
    I'd like to be able select 5 or 6 (or more) songs and have those play one after another. As it is now, one song will stop -and I have to double-click another song.
    Any suggestions (other than changing to RealPlayer) We are stuck with WinMedia here at work.
    Thanks,
    ~Rob M.

    I take it that suggesting switching to WinAmp isn't a solution either then...
    Anyway, Media Player also has a playlist section. I just tested it by pulling out the tab on the right-hand side of the default skin, and then dropping in the additional files to add them to the playlist.
    Playlists can be built in the 'media library' section as well, if you want.
    hope this helps

    Hmm.... that must a feature of WinMedia 7.0...
    I have a *very* basic playback unit with (Version 6.4.09).
    Rats, I'll see if I can upgrade.

    Doh! I feel dumb - forgot that this wasn't in the old version. If you're upgrading anyway, I think Winamp is much better for mp3s.
