I have a problem with my new Sansa Clip+. I’ve been reading on different forums that other people have a similar problem, too, but none of the solutions they offer work for me. To summarize. I am in the process of switching from iPod/iTunes, to MP3s playable on any device. Over 90% of my music is unprotected m4a (iTunes). I downloaded Winamp, which was wonderful the way it converted my music from m4a to MP3 when it loaded my Clip+. But, I cannot get a playlist to work on my Sansa external SD Card, no matter what I do. I’ve tried MSC, MTP, AutoDetect modes, I’ve tried exporting the playlist from Winamp, then copying manually to the Music folder on the Clip+. I’ve tried manually creating a Playlist (this isn’t really an option as I have about 30-40 playlists, and about 3,000 songs). I’ve tried using Playlist Creater. But, no matter what I do, the playlists, if they show up on the Sansa at all, are always empty. The main use of my Clip+ is for Audible audiobooks - the internal memory is filled with books. I use the slot for both SlotRadio cards and for a 16gb micro SDHC card (Sandisk, or course). The music plays fine from the card if I play it by artist, album, genre, etc, but not by playlist. Any help would be greatly appreciated - I don’t want to go back to iPods! I love my Clip+!
As long as you’re already familar with Winamp, maybe this could help.
