I understand that you don’t want to use a file browser and wouldn’t even get close to it, but some of us would and many mp3 players do have this feature. I understand the advantages of playlists and tags and I am not arguing against using playlists or using WMP and iTunes. They are great. I do use them too. Virtually all of my songs are tagged correctly. But, for some things I prefer to use file browsing.
“but opening an application takes not more that 2 secs on any of my computers”
In 2 secs I have already put my file in the folder I want it in and unplugged the player! And after those 2 secs, you still have to find your song, create the playlist, and transfer the playlist and the song. I am not saying your way is a slow process or not as good, but I am saying that your claim about it being faster than putting it in a folder is wrong.
Creating a folder takes no time. And usually the folder will already be there, so all I do is drop the file into the folder that is already there, since I have a folder already for for example going to the gym.
I tend to download songs from various sites having nothing to do with wmp or itunes, and the mixes I use for the gym, I just drop them in the gym folder. It takes not even a second.
It’s just an mp3 player, I don’t care about rating the songs or having correct tags on it.
There is also nothing old and nothing wrong with my software or hardware. It’s a matter of preference and a matter of different ways of using it.
“how someone can complain about a feature that is in no way advertised or promised is simply beyond me.”
What does it have to do with whether it is advertised? I am saying they should start adding that feature, since it is pretty much the only drawback for the player (in the opinion of some of us).
“also contrary to your belief you are by far in the minority wanting this feature. the majority find id3 tag editing to be much more efficient in the long run.”
How is that contrary to my belief? I haven’t epxressed that it is not a minority that wants this feature! I said I am obviously not the only one.
And probably the majority understands nothing about neither file browsing or id3 tags and don’t know of any other ways of doing it. So saying they find it more efficient is wrong. They don’t know the difference and have no opinion on the matter.
I still use the Clip, because it is an excelent player in all other aspects, and this is not such a major issue that I can’t live with it and do the playlists when needed. I just wish for the option like on other mp3 players I have had.
