I’m having some problems with creating playlists on the Sansa Clip+ (4GB). I have some MP3’s on the internal memory and I have no problem with creating playlists for those files. But I also have some MP3’s on my 8GB MicroSD card (made by SanDisk by the way) and I have not been able to create playlists for those files.
Let me clarify; I can create the playlists for the MP3’s on the MicroSD card but no matter where I store those playlists (internal memory or the card itself) I have problems. If I store the playlists on the internal memory the contents of those playlists disappears if I unplug the card. The playlists are still there but they are empty. If I store the playlists on the MicroSD card (where the MP3 files are) and later unplug the card, the playlists themselves are changed into something completely different. The names of the files are changed to something starting with a whole bunch of numbers and the playlists are not even recognizable.
I’m also having the same problem when I copy MP3’s directly to the MicroSD card - the names are all changed and there are a bunch of extra junk files added. The problem becomes worse if I put the music in folders on the MicroSD card. At least if they are all in the same folder I can get rid of the junk files.
I should probably mention that I am not using the crazy method that they recommend in the user manual syncing with Windows Media Player. It takes too long and it’s too complicated. Instead I just select the songs that I want in any particular playlist (which I copied to my MicroSD card from my PC) and right click on any of the selected files and a context menu pops up and gives you the option to Create a Playlist - (in Windows XP SP3).
It works just fine on the internal memory. That’s the way I did it on my regular Sansa Clip and it worked without any problem at all. But it will not work with any of the files on my MicroSD card. Am I doing something wrong? Or is my MicroSD card not working properly?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
