Thanks Tapeworm. Just have a few questions.
1. Do you mean .pla playlists can contain songs on both the internal mem and external mem at the same time? I started using WMP years ago and just stuck with it out of habit. Recently read good things about Media Monkey and J.River Jukebox so I downloaded the freeware versions to try. Could not import .wpl playlists to either so I converted all my playlists to M3U. Discovered what you were saying about M3U playlists not being able to play songs on both internal mem and external mem at the same time. Your comments are the first place in searching for two days for a solution to the problem that mentions these facts. I thought it to be a limitation of the player or firmware.
2. Is there a way to access the Go playlist file to save and rename it. I had a Zen that would allow this on the player and now that it died and I replaced it with the Clip+ I see how much I used that feature. I know it can’t be done from the player but can I find that file (Go playlist) from my computer and save and rename it somehow?
3. You say MSC is more flexible. How so? I had a Samsung player years ago that you could not do playlists in MSC mode and that until recently that was a limitation of MSC so I used MTP. I see your comment of the superiority of MSC and that on another website Forum MSC was preferred more than 2 to 1 over MTP. I’m willing to switch my 20+ GB of music on my player (Clip+ 8GB plus a 16GB micro SD) to MSC but in a small test I don’t see much difference. Appreciable download speed is not really enough of a reason switch. i.e. Convince me why I should switch please.
