    I've created a music playlist as a gift, consisting of mp3 downloads. I want to have the playlist exported from a PC windows 7, to a thumb/flash drive so that the person I'm giving it to can insert the thumb drive to his android phone and have it play automatically.

    I already found out that in order to do this, I must create an m3u file, otherwise the the thumb drive will simply file and play the songs alphabetically, rather chronologically as they're arranged in the playlist.

    How do I do this? I googled the process extensively and attempted it myself but failed. I created an m3u file of the playlist, and transferred that, along with the mp3 songs onto the thumb drive, however it doesn't play when I insert the drive into my phone (Samsung 7) unless I click on each song. I want it to either play automatically, or play the entire playlist after clicking "play."

    I need step by step instructions from start to end in layman terms. It's for my boyfriend of over 2 years who is in the hospital receiving chemo treatments. So I'm desperate to get this to work.

    Thank you so much.
