The Sony NWZ-S545 Walkman allows you to carry your favourite playlist with you while you are on the go. In order to create a playlist on your device, you must first organise the playlist through other software programs. The software programs you can use include Windows Media Player 11, iTunes and Windows Explorer. Once your playlists are organised, all you have to do is click a few mouse buttons to add the playlist to your Walkman.
