Couple of Questions about the Clip


I’m thinking of buying a Sansa Clip and have a couple of questions about the player:

  1. What is the difference between MSC and MTP modes, and what do they stand for?

  2. How long does it take to fully charge the Clip?

  3. What makes a track show up in the Audiobooks section? Is it the file type, genre, etc?

  4. Is the blue ring around the buttons a “scroller”, like on a few other Sansas?

5) I assume that when you sync a playlist from Windows Media Player 11, that playlist will show up in the Playlists section; correct?

Thanks for the help,


1)  MTP is Media Transfer Protocol,  its used for Windows Media files and Audible Audio book transfer.  It is default mode for XP and Vista.
2)   3.3 Hours
3)   Audible audio shows as Audiobooks
4)  The blue ring does not rotate on the Clip
5)  Correct
