Windows 7: USB stick WMP12 sync playlists too?

USB stick WMP12 sync playlists too?

Hi all, new to the site! Came here after much googling with a question.

I've tried googling it and it comes up with a wealth of almost-the-same questions, but none exactly answer mine. it's a basic "is it possible" one.

I have Win 7 Home Prem 64 bit and use WMP12 for organising my MP3s. My car has a USB socket on it which allows it to read Mp3s from a flash drive, and also M3U playlists which reference the files using relative filepaths. All good.

The flash drive is a 32GB model, and i have about 18GB of music i want to put on it - which works fine, the auto-sync feature copies all my music to the drive (took a long time the first time i must admit)

but I also have some playlists which I would like to copy to the drive. Is there a way (like in itunes) where you can make the drive contain maybe a separate folder in the root called playlists or, even just a bunch of M3U files in the root, which mirror those in my library?

I'm hoping it's not impossible and can be done in WMP12 because it can in other media players - but I can't find any settings for it, can't drag-and-drop a playlist onto the drive and the built in help file seems to be one page telling me the difference between auto and manual sync.

can any experts help me please?

I know this is a little late. But for the sake of others with the same problem. I was unable to successfully sync a playlist to a usb drive using WMP12. But, I found a program that did just that called SyncPlaylist. It is made by Openview Design It says it is for cars width Sync technology but it also works in other cars by taking the playlist and adding a number in front of the song name so that the playback will be in the order of the playlist.
