Hi,

I found something that works for me.

First create m3u file
Example
E:\Muziek\Blues\Carmen Maki\Poems In The Midnight\01 - 時には母のない子のように.flac

Substitute like destination in Sonos
So, ‘E:\Muziek’ is replaced with ‘\\192.168.5.200\Music’
Example
\\192.168.5.200\Music\Blues\Carmen Maki\Poems In The Midnight\01 - 時には母のない子のように.flac

In excel, use the encodeurl function 
Output is : 
%5C%5C192.168.5.200%5CMusic%5CBlues%5CCarmen%20Maki%5CPoems%20In%20The%20Midnight%5C01%20-%20%E6%99%82%E3%81%AB%E3%81%AF%E6%AF%8D%E3%81%AE%E3%81%AA%E3%81%84%E5%AD%90%E3%81%AE%E3%82%88%E3%81%86%E3%81%AB.flac

Then substitute ‘%5C%5C’ for ‘//’ and substitute ‘%5C’ for ‘/’
Output is : //192.168.5.200/Music/Blues/Carmen%20Maki/Poems%20In%20The%20Midnight/01%20-%20%E6%99%82%E3%81%AB%E3%81%AF%E6%AF%8D%E3%81%AE%E3%81%AA%E3%81%84%E5%AD%90%E3%81%AE%E3%82%88%E3%81%86%E3%81%AB.flac

Then add in front of it ‘x-file-cifs:’
Output is : x-file-cifs://192.168.5.200/Music/Blues/Carmen%20Maki/Poems%20In%20The%20Midnight/01%20-%20%E6%99%82%E3%81%AB%E3%81%AF%E6%AF%8D%E3%81%AE%E3%81%AA%E3%81%84%E5%AD%90%E3%81%AE%E3%82%88%E3%81%86%E3%81%AB.flac

Save as *.m3u file and copy somewhere, so SONOS can import it.
