I use media center for listening to music, however I also use itunes for keeping my iPod in sync. I often create playlists on the go on my iPod, but when I'm at home I prefer media center and often create playlists using that.

What is the easiest way to have a single folder of playlists, that work on both platforms?

In an ideal world, I would like a system that auto converts itunes playlists into m3u lists and sends them to a network location so that Windows media players can see and read them, and also, converts wmp playlists into itunes playlists and puts them into my itunes library.

I fear that there may not be an easy solution, so an alternative would be if I could easily convert itunes playlists into m3us, and convert m3us into whatever format itunes uses. This would be a bit of an annoying manual process, but if it is the only solution, then I can deal with that!

please note: all my music is on a network drive (X:\media\music\CDs), and I would like to have my playlists all together in a folder on the same drive if possible (X:\media\music\playlists).

Google led me to MusicBridge:

MusicBridge allows people who use both iTunes and WMP on the same machine to keep their libraries in sync. MusicBridge offers a variety of synchronization options so that you can manage your music collection in either media player or both.

Disclaimer: I have not used it yet, but planning to (as I have the exact same problem).
