CUE file for oppo playlist ??s

I have an oppo 103d and a 203 and have a usb external HD on each with all the music files in FLAC format. The files are individual files not entire CD images. Oppo tech support says I need to create a CUE file for a playlist and am looking for input on whether this will work when the files are located in subfolders with the artist/album/track arrangement. It took 3 emails to get that much info out of oppo. I will continue to try to ask them also.

    I have an external HDD connect to my 205 as well. To create playlists I connect the HDD to my computer & use Foobar2000(it's free) to build playlists. The playlist is saved as a .m3u file in the root folder of the HDD. The Oppo recognizes this format just fine.

    I'll try that. I would guess the 203 will work and hopefully the 103 will too.

    COOL. I always wondered how to create a playlist on the oppo.
  • I’m trying to create a m3u playlist using Foobar on a Samsung USB drive. Playlist is created and in the root directory of the drive. My OPPO 203 cannot find any playlist. It sees all my flac files fine but no playlist. Are you guys using m3u files on the OPPO? If so what am I doing wrong?

    Interesting topic. I have only downloaded some .Flac and some MP4 files to a USB thumb Drive and played them on my Oppo 203. I didn't try playlists but now I'd like to figure out how.
    Anyone figure that out yet? I'll have to find some time this week to give that a run.

    I can't figure it out either. Im trying to put several files on a usb drive along with some playlists. My 203 doesn't see the M3U playlists I created with Media Monkey. I've tried editing the path information in the M3U using Notepad but the Oppo can never identify any playlists on the USB drive.

    If I create an M3U with Media Monkey on my PC the Oppo has no problem finding, accessing and playing that playlist.

    If I create a playlist from the songs on the USB drive using the Oppo, the Oppo sees and plays the playlist. But if I then move the USB drive to my PC and search for the playlist I created on the Oppo, the PC can't identify that playlist.

    I'm not sure what a CUE is. Maybe that's my problem. What is and how do you create a Cue?

    I have all of my High definition music on my 3 Terabyte network back up hard drive (*connected to my router via Ethernet *) I’ve never had to do any of that??? It all shows up on my Oppos menu. I’ve had the BDP-83, then the 93, then the 103. Now I have a UDP-205. Same with all of them.

    Had some more files to put on the usb drive directly attached to the 203 and thought I'd try to play with this some more as it didn't work when I initially was trying. I installed foobar2000 on laptop, moved the usb HD to the laptop and created the playlist in the root folder and also put a copy in the parent folder for all the albums. I have the HD folders as root/music/artist/albums/songs. Neither of the .m3u files are recognized by the oppo. Any suggestions? Settings?

    Dave, I have tried this exact same thing on my system. It didn't work (Oppo couldn't see any of foobar's playlist formats). What is your secret?

    Does anyone other than me use a network attached backup hard drive?
    My desktop computer is running the latest version of Windows 10 and I found out from Western Digital how to turn the SMB back on, so I can stream my DSD files. I don't have any problems streaming ANY audio or video files from either my backup hard drive or my computer over my network. I'm not saying that I am so great or grand here. I'm just wondering why some of you are having all of these problems.
    Windows Media Player works perfectly for these functions via the DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) I stream DSD (Direct Stream Digital-which is the backbone of the SACD) over the SMB (Server Messenger Block) because DLNA doesn't recognize those files.
    All of the Oppo players from the 10x series on will play DSD files either from a USB stick or stream them via the SMB. However Apple computers no longer recognize SMB. Windows turns it off now, but you can go in and turn it back on in the turn widows features on and off section.
    All of the FLAC, WAV, ALAC and AIFF files work just fine via the DLNA.
    Same with video files.

    I'm now having issues as well, actually for quite awhile. M3u playlists aren't recognized anymore. I can't quite pinpoint when it happened, but they suddenly stopped working one day. I haven't got around to trying a different format.

    JRiver and Exact Audio Copy can both create cue files. In JRiver select 'Tools' then 'Options' , then 'CD, DVD and BD', then 'File Management' and choose 'Rip to a single file with CUE rather than separate files'. In EAC I can't remember exactly but I believe it's under 'EAC', then 'Options'.
