favorites gone after adding songs from computer

When I add songs to my m250, my favorites is deleted, it takes me quite a while to create my favorites and it is very irriatating to hhave it deleted everytime i add a song.

is there anything that can be done to preserve my favorites?

nope, its an old design flaw. and i doubt they will updating any firmwares for the m200 series.

Is there a work around this. Example, copy Favorites to PC, before adding new songs, and then copy Favorites back to Mp3 player after adding new songs?
