Having been an Iriver user for 5 years, I just switched to the Clip and am trying to understand playlists. On my Iriver, I organized my music just like I would organize any files (text, excel, music, whatever) on my hard drive. I organized music on the Iriver according to Genre. On the Clip, I can’t do this and I have to organize by playlists (I guess). I thought that a playlist would be just a list of songs to play in a particular order. Using WMP, I filled my Clip with songs by drag an drop, then tried to make and sync playlists. The sync gave an error saying my Clip was full. Yes, I knew it was full, but I thought that playlists were just lists and not the actual music files. When I sync a playlist from WMP, does it try to transfer the music files, too? If this is the case, then I don’t understand playlists. My original plan was to fill the Clip with all my favorite songs, and then to make a dozen or so playlists that would play the songs in the list in the order I specify. When I got tired of the playlists, I planned to make new ones, but assumed that all my music would still be on the Clip undistrubed. What don’t I understand about playlists and transferring them to the Clip? Do I have to transfer all music to the clip in the form of playlists if I want to play the music using playlists?
Any help appreciated
