The Exeze Rider MP3 player does not have support for playlists like they exist in e.g. iTunes, but the way it works in short is that it plays the files in the order they were copied onto the MP3 player.
The playlists on the Exeze Rider MP3 player works as follows:
- If the audio files on the MP3 player are stored without using any folders then the audio files are played in the order they were copied onto the MP3 player.
- If the audio files are stored in folders then the MP3 player plays the audio files within each folder in the order they were copied onto the MP3 player.
- Once all the files in a folder have been played, the audio files in the next folder are played.
- The folders are played in the order the folders were created.
When you turn on the Exeze Rider MP3 player then the MP3 player continues playing where it was when you turned it off. However, if the battery runs out or if the files on the MP3 player are changed then it may start from the beginning.
If there are no playable files stored on the Exeze Rider then it will shut itself off automatically. Also, if the earphones are not inserted properly then the Exeze Rider will also shut itself off automatically.
Please make sure that the audio files are in MP3 format without any copy protection, and that the earphones are fully inserted into the earphone jack. Then firmly press and hold the play button for a few seconds until the indicator light comes on.
