Exporting playlists to Thumb drive

When I export my playlists from Engine Prime to flash drive, all the tracks end up in one folder instead of the playlists I selected. Is there a way to export my playlists so that they remain in seperate folders?

Thanks in advance

Copy them manually from computer folder to USB, then run the Thumb drive through engine prime.

  1. You will loose all your hot cues, loops, beat grids
  2. You wont be able to sync back changes you made using the thumb drive to the source drive

This is how it was designed. It’s designed for you to use crates and playlists and not worry about where the actual file is. It manages all that for you.

You may want to create your folder structure as crates/playlists

I’ve tried both, exporting playlists and I tried exporting crates and the the tracks end up in one folder titled DENONDJ2

I think you misunderstood what i wrote.

Copy the folders directly from your laptop drive to the thumb drive (no engine prime)

What hardware have you got?

MCX8000. Will doing that mean that I loose beatgrids, key etc?

Sorry, i didnt know thats the device. Thought you were referring to the Prime hardware.

Disregard everything i said.

@kradcliffe what say ye?

Are you using MCX8000 compatibility mode from within Prime?

Unfortunaltely it’s the way the songs are packed on the stick. I guess you could put them on the stick in your pre-arranged folders then try analysing them there from Engine Prime.

I just use the standard export and as you say they are all packed to the same folder.

My MCX8000 is still being delivered. I wonder if the crates/playlist will be organized when I plug it in to the hardware, even though it’s in one folder on the usb stick.

You don’t have to analyze the tracks in Prime, if you have them in specific folders on the drive they will still play, but you won’t have a beatgrid.

Let us know if you need any further help once it arrives. Good choice of a controller by the way!

I was aware of that but I want the track info.
