Doh, didn't even think. I always use wifi, I changed methods just for this one huge sync and later never thought to try the wifi.

Maybe 'embed art' should be an option instead, and off by default....?
Sounds perfect to me.

I will bring this thread to the relevant devs' attention tomorrow.
Very cool, thanks DJ! Winamp has been my #1 for a LONG time (a lot of free years at first!) and I'm a developer too so I shouldn't be so whiny.

I think I was offended because my first workaround was to taint my machine with *cough* Windows Media Player 12 *cough* only to discover (the hard way) that it syncs the .mp3s, but will not send your actual bleeping playlists to the phone! Manually moving the playlists fails because Media Player changes the folder structure when it writes the mp3s to the phone! Can't manage music on the phone with no bleeping playlists.
