Hello Fuzers ;),
Before I describe my problem, some basics at first:
- Sansa Fuze 8GB (V2), FW V02.03.31P, + 8 GB microsdhc
- MTP-mode (!)
- OS Windows XP, SP3
- WMP 11
- Winamp 5.541
I recently got a Fuze, since I’ve run out of space on my beloved 8 GB Clip.
I love the Fuze so far but I’m a bit disappointed that I can’t manage my playlists with Winamp like I did it before with the Clip.
Winamp crashes every time I try it - I did a bit of research here on the forums (and abi-forums) and now I know that it’s a known issue because WMP competes against Winamp and that WMP wins this competition
I also read some posts which advised to just change the usb-mode but that’s not an option for me. The MTP-mode is kind of my holy grail, because I want to pull out the cable of my device at almost any time without having the fear of damaging it or losing files. So I’d rather not switching the usb-mode, even if that means that I can’t use Winamp anymore.
Now I’m searching for a program that allows me to browse through/search through my previously in MTP-mode (drag&drop)added music and let me create playlists.
What I do not want is syncing my fuze. I just want to create playlists with songs that are _already_ on the player. WMP makes that really complicated and even when the device and the WMP-media library contain exactly the same music it happens that during ‘syncing’ a playlist some songs get duplicated on the player. (-.-’’)
(I know that with ‘right click’ and ‘create playlist’ I am able to create playlists in
mtp-mode but that option isn’t really comfortable and I’d like to sort the songs in my my playlist alphabetically. Plus I’d like to make playlists with many different artists/songs from different genres and it’s a pain to search all of them manually ‘by hand’.)
So basically I search for a program that acts like Winamp, and which let me search through the songs that are already on my Fuze and let me create playlists with those songs.
Is that possible with Media Monkey? I’ve tried it but I couldn’t really search through the songs on my player, let alone create playlists with the songs. Maybe I made a mistake. If so, I’d give it another try.
Maybe someone is able to help me with my little problem Im open for suggestions!
(Oh and please excuse any mistakes that I made in this post. Unfortunately English isn’t my first language ^^)
