I recently purchased a new Sansa Clip+ to replace a 4 year-old obsolete Sansa that’d died. I was intrigued by the slotRadio card feature and since Radioshack had them on special, for $30, I picked one ('80s and '90s) up.
The marketing blurb for the cards says “songs are played in sequence and cannot be rewound or re-arranged”. That implied to me that the playlist, although fixed, is circular (i.e. repeats the same list over and over). To test this theory I’ve created an Excel spreadsheet and am documenting the song play order. What I’ve found so far is that many songs repeat and so far I don’t see a circular list–it appears somewhat random (although that’s what you’d expect).
Thus my question: are the channel playlists fixed and circular or do they honor the players “randomize” setting? If they’re fixed/circular what’s the list length?
PS 1: The '80s and '90s card has 8 “channels” not the stated “7 Handcrafted Playlists”.
PS 2: The card has 63MB of writable area (“There is also a user area on the card where you can store up to one album’s worth of your own files.”).
PS 3: Every now and then the track “www.slotradio.org” plays an ad for slotRadio cards.
