Playlist Location Problem

Hi. Ok, first I'll set up my question...
I add 10 mp3s to the empty playlist editor. Then I save the playlist in a folder of my choosing: ...\My Documents\Music\Playlists\Guitar.m3u.
Next I clear the playlist editor, add 10 other songs, and save the playlist in a folder of my choosing: ...\My Documents\Music\Playlists\Drums.m3u.
Then I load the Guitar.m3u playlist.

I play drums and guitar and I've decided that one of the songs in my Guitar.m3u also should be in Drums.m3u.

So, I want to right-click the file in the playlist editor, select "Send to", then "Media Library Playlists", then Drums.m3u, but Drums.m3u does not appear in the list. I want it to be there!

I guess only playlists from from the Application Data folder appear here, but why would anyone want a playlist sitting in Application Data ?? (That's a rhetorical question, I don't really want to know why.) I just want to see the playlists from my playlist folder in the list.

Please help as I've been trying to make this work for hours now.

the media library playlists are not related to those you manually create in a folder.

the purpose of the media library playlist is a repository of playlists where people aren't bothered about them not being in the physical location (as you and many other people do).

at the moment, without re-opening the playlist and amending things like that i don't think there is another option for what you're looking for (either natively or via a plug-in - there's been a few requests for such a plug-in but no one has created one that i'm aware off and with the response i got from some users i haven't seen the interest to create one myself).

so unless someone else can some up with a better suggestion i'm not too sure there's much of an option at the moment for you other than the tedious manual method.
