    Hi, I have been trying to search for my answer with no luck and was hoping someone with music experience can help me. I have put a bunch of CDs on my Blackberry and hook my Blackberry up to the AUX in my car to play for my toddler on long road trips. The only problem is that everytime a CD ends, I have to type the password into my blackberry (while driving 70 mph) and then choose a new album and play it. So, I created a playlist with all of the albums in it in hopes that by playing the playlist once, it will play every album without me having to do anything. Comes in handy for long road trips with the little one. Anyway, the playlist idea works, but it plays all the songs from all the albums randomly. Does anyone know how to make it play all the songs from one album before it moves to the next?

    I appreciate any assistance anyone can provide.

    Thanks.

    First, what location are you driving in and entering text at 70mph? I want advance warning.....

    Here's an example of what I have: (I have added Line Numbers and a colon since it appears to be breaking wrong in the entry box)

    1:#EXTM3U
    2:#EXTINF:430,Dvorak American Quartet 05 - 'American': Allegro Ma Non Troppo
    3: Dvorak American Quartet\Dvorak American Quartet 05.mp3
    4:#EXTINF:478,Dvorak American Quartet 06 - 'American': Lento
    5: Dvorak American Quartet\Dvorak American Quartet 06.mp3
    6:#EXTINF:228,Dvorak American Quartet 07 - 'American': Molto Vivace
    7: Dvorak American Quartet\Dvorak American Quartet 07.mp3
    8:#EXTINF:309,Dvorak American Quartet 08 - 'American': Finale-Vivace Ma Non Troppo
    9: Dvorak American Quartet\Dvorak American Quartet 08.mp3


    The entries are kind of folderless even those the music is located in:

    sdcard/blackberry/music/dvorak/composition

    Another with various pieces including some "album" that play consecutively. I'll skip the numbering this time as the format follows from above:

    #EXTM3U
    #EXTINF:-1,
    Satie - Piano Works\01.Gymnopedie1.mp3
    #EXTINF:-1,
    Satie - Piano Works\02.Gymnopedie2.mp3

    Thank you for your response. I am very new at this and not sure I understand your directions. Would you mind breaking down the steps a little more to help me understand what I need to do to get my albums to play consecutively.

    Thanks

    Ignore the Dvorak one - it has some extra info.

    But in the longer one

    The first line is a header followed by the second line which is repeated for each track:

    #EXTM3U
    #EXTINF:-1,
    Satie - Piano Works\01.Gymnopedie1.mp3

    The third line is the folder structure and mp3 filename:

    So, in actuality that piece is located on my Tour in:

    Blackberry/Music/Satie - Piano Works/filename.mp3

    Then the format repeats for the next tune in the album, etc.

    Then you see I have other tunes (ah, Dvorak would be happy with me calling his stuff tunes, but I'm not so sure about the others), again, the structure is two lines, the #EXTINF:-1 and then the mp3 name and location:

    #EXTINF:-1,
    Ravel Piano Concerto in G\Ravel, Maurice - Complete Music for Piano Solo, Disc 1 - 02 - Piano Concerto in G,,Adagio assai.mp3

    Oh, maybe this really should have come up before, but make sure that you do not have RANDOM or Shuffle or whatever play as a setting.
