    I had a script which made creating itunes playlists/folders quick and easy - just drag a bunch of folders onto it and it auto-created a folder/playlist for each.

    As it's PowerPC-based it no longer works, and I haven't yet found a replacement>

    Suggestions appreciated - please/thanks etc.

    Thanks.

    it was Play Folders which no longer works, and I'd already revisted and found nothing suitable.

    But, clearly I hadn't looked properly - and found 'Drop to Add and Make Playlists' which works fine.

    The Play Folders app is not saved as read only, so you can recompile it for Intel processors/Lion.

    To do that:
    Open the AppleScript Editor.
    Once it's up, and its icon shows in the dock, drag the 'Play Folders.app' icon on top of the Editor's icon.
    That'll open the App's source code.
    Now do a 'Save As' from AppleScript Editor's file menu.
    Save the code as an app named 'Play Folders2.app' or some such.
    That App runs under Lion on my Mac. It should also run on your Mac.


    This technique will work for many scripts that have the "can not run" badge superimposed on their icon in Lion. The scripts aren't dead or obsolete, they just need recompiling for the new OS.
