I’m at my wits end. I’ve most successfully used the Windows Explorer method of creating the playlists, for my new Clip+, but when I disconnect the player and go to see the results, the first playlist that is brought up becomes the ONLY playlist that works. It doesn’t matter if I hook it up again, delete and re-create them via computer, changing the USB settings or anything. Once disconnected from the comp, I go to and pick any playlist, the player will take a second or two to apparently, bring up the list, and it is successful. But if I go back and try to pick a different list, the SAME SONGS from the FIRST chosen playlist are loaded.
I’ve tried using different USB connections that I read about here in the forums to no avail. I’m faced with the same problem as above. Here’s some other methods I’ve recently tried to create playlists, and none have fully worked:
Using WMP, but this was before I found the MTP USB setting, and not it appears that I’ll, again, have to delete all my content from the player and re-insert it using WMP in order to (maybe) try and create the playlists again??? I don’t think so.
I’ve tried using that free app “Sansa Clip Playlist Creator” but it doesn’t even see the Clip when it is connected, no matter what USB setting is used.
Using the free version of “Playlist Creator for SanDisk Sansa Clip 2.32” results in “No Music or Audio Files Found” if I try to create a playlist choosing any other folders than the “Music” folder in the player. Meaning I cannot pick any of the downloaded files currently in the player. Which kind of defeats the purpose in creating a playlist, really.
Using Playlist Creator 3.6 as suggested for a similar playlist issue on this thread: http://forums.sandisk.com/t5/Clip-Clip/Problems-with-playlists-on-Clip/m-p/127538/highlight/true#M26681
…results in the created playlists as showing empty in the player menu.
From a further search of the forums, my issue sounds similar in nature to what “belowzeros” had on his unit at this thread: http://forums.sandisk.com/t5/Clip-Clip/weird-playlist-problem/m-p/102264/highlight/true#M24226
…but I’m not using Winamp, and am on Win7.
What am I doing wrong here? Are playlists of more than a few hundred songs too big, perhaps? I just can’t figure it out. It should not be this difficult!! I’m far from computer illiterate, so I’m confounded when I cannot find a solution to this problem anywhere, after more than 8 hours of working at it. I’m prepared to send this thing back re-formatted and be done with it, or launch it into orbit, I’m so frustrated.
