Thank you for your very quick reply.
No, I don’t have protected files. I am new to the player and just setting it up. I thought that MTP would be a convenient way to go, with automatic syncing of auto playlists taking care of any alterations I might make to those playlists. If MSC is a better way to go, I will use that.
If you have time I would like to ask some related questions.
May i ask why MSC is better?
I had intended to use syncing as it has worked well for me on my other player. Howver, that player has proprietary software. With the Clip+ I have already noticed that the folder structure is strange, and that selections for songs and artists don’t always produce the desired result. I guess that is what you are referring to, at least in part?
I expect that manual syncing would produce similar results?
If I drop folders directly onto the player is it possible to create playlists for those folders?
