My Sansa e260 integrates the MicroSD card files by displaying and making them accessible from the Albums, Artists, and Songs menus just as is does files in the main memory. What it doesn't do is load the album art as it does for the main memory. And, it doesn't support the playlists I create in WMP11 except in the main memory. Both of these shortfalls annoy me and I hope one of you Fuze early adopters can tell us this has been fixed. I like the pocketable size and look of the Fuze, but as I search for a larger capacity player I might give the 16GB View a second look if these complaints haven't been addressed.

Guess What. If you sync album art to the external card you will be able to see it on the Fuze. You can have multiple cards as well, and the art is preserved on the card.
We also preserve your playlists on the card.

Great! This is good news. Especially with regard to the playlists. I'm finding as my music files grow larger and my memory continues to fade, it's easier to find my newest music by selecting my latest playlist rather than searching for the album or artist.

Correct, extracting the art from the file itself is not yet supported. Using WMP11 the process is completely automatic to sync content and album art to either storage.

Does that mean that extracting the art from the file is coming? I'm just wondering so I don't go and manaully put an 'album art.jpg' into each and every folder on the Fuze. I use MediaMonkey to transfer songs in MTP mode. All of my files have an embedded image.
This is my first and only complaint with the player so far. They did a great job with this so far.

Thanks to both of you for this additional clarification. All of my music is from CDs ripped to WMP11 while connected to the internet. AMG has never failed to find album art and that artwork has always synced, along with the music files, to my Sansa e260's main memory (but not the microSD card).
