Make sure the card is in the phone, open windows media player. It will scan the card and display all the media content on the card. Select the file you wanna play, and then (supprisignly) press play!

You cant have playlists though BTW!

Just re read your post, if you have media on the phone AND the card, there isnt anyway (that i know of) to just play the media of the card (or vice versa) Media player just scans away and loads everything into the playlist!

..........and it should just go on and play the rest!

I removed the Chemical Bros and sample Media Player file, otherwise it will play them too.

De selecting 'background play' in options makes for smoother play back too.

As Rog said, Media Player jusy goes through and plays them one after another. You can goto menu > settings in media player and select to shuffle and repeat if you wish!

BTW hope your gonna be near a battery charger if you plan on sitting back and listening to them for an hour :D

Actually as an MP3 player it's pretty long lasting - well by SPV standards. I was listening while shopping for 4 hours and still had 2 bars left at the end. I was listening through headphones, the GPRS was off and I didn't use the screen though. All in all pretty chuffed really.

well, not entirely true! See Q-Rious thread here: http://www.modaco.co...topic.php?t=714 & scroll a bit down to this part (lemme paste it here):

Play list in media player.
As some of you have noticed the media player on the phone does NOT have a play list function! This is extremely irritating as the media player then starts movie files when you use it as an mp3 player.  

The media player does not support normal play lists, but what I discovered is that it support ordinary .asx files (these files are used for streaming video). and as you might have guessed you are able to make multiple entries in an asx file, and therefore you can use these as an play list.

The asx syntax is quite easy, and does basically use a xml syntax.

Example:

<asx version="3">

<entry><ref href = "mymusicnr1.wma"/></entry>

<entry><ref href = "mymusicnr2.wma"/></entry>

</asx>
In this example the music files has to be located in the same dir as the .asx file, but you can use direct paths.

To use the play list all you have to do is locate the file in your ALL-explorer or Internet explore, and run it. Then in the menu item Select you only have the files written in the play list.


hope this helps.

Why not go the whole hog and put the asx file or a shortcut into your programs menu, you could even create a new subfolder for them.
Just tried this out and now have a new folder in my programs menu called music with a shortcut to a playlist. Works a treat. I'm off to sort out the rest of my tunes. :D
