Cannot see m3u playlists?

I cannot see playlists in my devices nor MediaBrowser
(using v1.9 on Windows XP SP3)

I have added some Audio .m3u playlists in a folder under one of my shared folders.
When I look in MediaBrowser, I cannot see the playlists.
I looked under Audio/Playlists
and the folder containing them via Audio/Folder...

The log shows this
2017-11-26 17:10:18,984 INFO [PlaylistFileIndexer] Added playlist 'TEST.m3u' (title: TEST) to Library
2017-11-26 17:10:19,015 INFO [PlaylistFileIndexer] Added playlist 'TEST_Simple.m3u' (title: TEST_Simple) to Library

The playlist TEST_Simple.m3u is simply

That file was also added successfully to the library.
2017-11-26 17:02:06,828 INFO [MediaFileIndexer] Added file 'F:\LPs\zPlaylists\Test_Neg10dB.mp3' (title: Test_Neg10dB) to Library

I've searched through the forums and it seems no one else has a problem with playlists, so can anyone suggest what could be wrong please?

That file doesn't look like it's formatted correctly. Here's the top few lines of one of my M3U files:
#EXTINF:5069, -  - 13 Ghosts
F:\Movies\13 Ghosts (1960).mkv

Notice the #EXTINF that yours is missing. This is one reason I mostly use PLS files, as the syntax is much simpler.
