treat internal & external storage AS ONE: clip zip vs v1 clip


Does clip zip treat internal storage and external card AS ONE?   requiring no button fiddling or settings tweaking

 

 

I have had four v1 clips.  I never bothered "upgrading" to clip+ because of credible reports that one could EITHER browse internal storage OR the sdcard. 

 

NOT acceptable.

 

I have been gifted a clip zip with receipt and left it in box until I find wish camp clip zip occupies.

The Zip works in this way as any other Sansa player. The database (that you browse in the Music menu) includes the Artists, Albums and Tracks from both memory locations. And if you have Shuffle turned on and press Play All, it will select tracks also from both memory locations.

I think you might have mis-read or misunderstood those "credible reports". Yes, using the Folder option (in the Music menu) you can browse either the internal memory or external card content, but this is a "feature" or "option" for those wanting to do so. You don't have to.

I have no idea what you are trying to say here. If you've been given a Clip Zip, open it up and enjoy it. That's what the person who gave it to you intended. Smiley Happy

I'm fairly certain that's supposed to be "WHICH camp" the Zip occupies. As in, does it treat the internal and external memories as one, or not?

 

But yes octoFLAC, as Tapeworm said, if you use the default database browsing system and not folder browsing, all your internal and external files are in a unified list (or lists if you want to choose what to play by artist, album, etc.).
