Best PC Based Media Manager/Playlist Creation

I have several older sansa clips and bought a newer Clip as well as a Clip jam plus. The older clips worked well with Windows Media Player and transferred Playlist’s seamlessly (as does a regular jump drive when I create one for my cars USB port to play music).

However I’ve had issues creating Playlists with the new ones, even when I change the default Playlist format within Windows Media Player for the type file Sansa tecommends.

Is there another Media Player I can download on my PC that might work better (ideally one like iTunes where you can cut off the beginning and end of songs)?
