My question is would my Clip Zip run more efficiently if I put all my music on my 32gb micro sd card instead of filling up the players internal memory then putting the remaining music on my sd card?
The short answer? No.
The best thing one can do with any SanDisk player to speed things up and avoid weird behavior is clean up your ID3 tags. I can’t stress this enough. Those of us here who have been around awhile have learned this and we have ZERO problems with our machines. Yet we are constantly seeing new people (usually with no experience with mp3 players) posting about freezing, lagging, slowness, skipping and various other issues.
Get MP3Tag (it’s free) and make sure the tags are clean and in the correct format. There are many, many threads and posts on this subject. Black-Rectangle is absolutely the best at giving advice on this. I suggest you search out some of his posts and excellent guidance and spend some quality time with your files. If you have a lot then yes, it’s going to take a while to check them all and get them all in shape, but once you do, it’s done. And usually then, so are your problems. As you acquire new music and get in the habit of checking the tags before adding them to the player, it only takes a few seconds and isn’t really a chore at all. Look at it as “preventative maintenance”.
