Re: Combining MIcro SD Card and Internal Memory

Thank you everyone for your response.  

 

I did some research and it seems that you can only create a playlist with songs that are in the same folder.  Can you be more specific JaZZ on how you can include both the micro sd card and internal memory in one playlist?

 

Thanks.

What you've read («you can only create a playlist with songs that are in the same folder») is not true.

 

Connect the Sport to the computer (Windows!), open foobar2000 (or Winamp or any other appropriate music player), drag and drop the desired music files (or folders containing them or the whole Music folder[s]) from the Sport to foobar's playlist editor, under «File» save playlist as m3u to the root folder of either the internal memory or the card of the Sport, name it to your liking. That's it.

 

It's important to save the playlist to the Sport. Saving it on your computer and copying it to the Sport won't work.

Great that you have your own opinion.  But that doesn't mean that others who have different opinions are wrong (nor, of course, are yours)--they're just different, perhaps based on different needs.  Nor does it mean that people with opinions different from you must be working for SanDisk, as you stated derogatorally as to one person and opinion above.

Re: Combining MIcro SD Card and Internal Memory

Thanks JaZZ for the quick response.

 

Can I use Windows Media Player to create a playlist for my player?  I never heard of Foobar before.

I guess it should work, but I don't use it, so can't say for sure.

 

Just in case: foobar2000

Re: Combining MIcro SD Card and Internal Memory

Well, I downloaded Foobar, and when I try to save all the songs to my playlist, it only has the songs that are in the folder that I save the playlist to.

 

For example:  I save the playlist under my micro sd card, only the songs that are on the micro sd card show up on the playlist.  If I put the playlist on the internal memory, only songs from the internal memory show up.

 

Am I doing something wrong?

 

Thanks.

When you're speaking of «folders», do you mean a folder on the respective drive or the root directory? It should be saved to the root directory. If you have done that, then I have no explanation for the failure. As reported in an earlier post, I got this result as well with my first try, but the second test was successful. Maybe just repeat it, by leaving the first playlist where it is – as that's what I did in my successful try. I guess the Sport is a capricious fellow.

Re: Combining MIcro SD Card and Internal Memory

It deosn't want to work for me for whatever reason.  I tried more than twice.  It keeps on only using songs from the folder that I save the .m3u file to, not both internal and micro sd card.

 

Thanks everyone for your help anyways.

I'm sorry that it doesn't work out for you. I'm halfways in the same situation, as it just works in one of my players. Interestingly it's not dependent on the player, but on the card. This although it's the same 64 GB SanDisk card both times. When I swap the cards, the player with the «right» card shows the full content of the original playlist and plays all files, a mix from both internal and external memory. The player with the «wrong» card just (dis)plays the songs contained in its respective memory.

 

The two cards are organized differently: The «right» one has a normal folder structure, the «wrong» one has just the Music folder with all songs in it (this to enable shuffle play in folder mode). It makes player reactions slow, but I can't see a correlation between this feature and the playlist handling.

 

Anyone has an explanation? SanDisk? Smiley Very Happy

Re: Combining MIcro SD Card and Internal Memory

Ansambla, I don't understand the first part of your message. I have stored the same playlist on both memories and could access it through both Music and Card mode – with the reported mixed results.

 

At the time when the user manual was created, 32 GB SDHC cards were the maximum. But as reported by others, too, 64 and 128 GB SDXC cards work fine in the Sport. And there's no reason for a player to react differently with the same card due to the size as in my case. Also, KJ177 is unable to get a playlist with songs from internal and external memory as well with an 8 GB card.
