I’m not sure what you mean. I just have a playlist for each media device. The only difference I think is that I have several playlists instead of one. It works for me because I tend to put different types of music on each media, eg. classical on Fuze, Rock/Other on Fuze3. If I change my playlist then I just sync it and it’s updated. If I add new media I would add another playlist or sync a current one if I want to use the new media as a replacement for the old media.
I’m sure having one master playlist would be a bit easier, but not too much in my way of using it. I find this much easier than drag-and-drop because I can just useMediaFlow to browse the playlist and then hit the sync button.
One way to do what you want would be a simple songbird add-on that can break up a playlist into multiple preset size dependent temp playlists just for syncing, do the sync using FolderSync, and then remove the temp lists. Of course, it would do this in the background so you don’t see how it achieves the goal - it would just look like a sync to the user.
On Linux there are “union” filesystem tools which allow combining two devices into one. They are generally used for making readonly media writeable (copy-on-write) but may support overflow writing onto secondary media. But my guess is you’re not on Linux…and I don’t know for sure that it would work.
