I am wondering what the best way to use the clip with ubuntu 8.04 hardy would be, where I could still transfer from windows with no problems. Ideally, I could be on ubuntu or windows and sync using rhythmbox/wmplayer with no conflicts or the need to reformat. What are the steps I need to take to do this? I am running latest sansa firmware and using MSC mode. Do I need to format from one OS in order to use it on both? Also can someone explain to me the difference between MTP and MSC? Thanks a ton.
