I’m using the 4 GB Sansa Fuze, Firmware version V02.03.33A and WMP version 11.0.6002.18111 in Windows Vista. I am also using a 16 GB SanDisk Micro SDHC card, which is where I store all my music, because apparently you can’t do playlists that incorporate songs from both the player and the card.
Right now I have about 2,800 songs that I’m putting on the player, which takes up about 9 GB. I have about 8 different playlists I use, which I like to update from time to time. The problem is, this takes literally 8 to 10 hours, which seems unusually slow. An older MP3 player I had used to accomplish this in about 3 hours. I like to make new playlists often, but this is just too time-consuming. I’ve tried all the USB ports on my computer.
(It also takes at least 10 minutes to refresh the device once the synching is done.)
I’ve already tried MSC mode as well as dragging and dropping files straight on to the player in Auto Mode, which lets me put the songs on faster but doesn’t let me add the playlists. Any suggestions on how to speed up the process while still using WMP?
