I have a new pc with (unfortunately) Windows 8. Previously with Windows Vista I was using Acoutica MP3 Maker which was great for creating a long playlist file with crossfaded songs. I’d name them A, B…etc and transfer the files, about an hour long each to the Sandisk player which resulted in a great listening experience. Acoustica is not compatible with Windows 8. Are there any known programs that can do the same file rendering?
At this point I’d settle for something to simply retai the playlist order. Vista’s Window Media Player would create a playlist file (.pla) and place it in the Sandisk Playlist folder which would play the songs in selected order. Again, another big drwaback with Windows 8, the media player version does not have that feature nor could I find any option. I tried Realplayer with various device settings, no luck. iTunes doesn’t even see the device - but I used iTunes for a workaround. I burned an mp3 CD, then copied that CD to a folder on the pc. The songs are preceded by 01 02… etc. I then copied that folder to the Albums folder on the Sandisk. I can play the ‘playlist’ as desired by going to internl memory - MTP - Albums, select the file any Play All.
