I have a pledge from Sandisk (for next firmware update) regarding Podcasts and Audiobooks…
Please consider everything under ‘Podcasts’ folder as a podcast and similarly everything under Audiobooks folder as an audiobook. It would be ideal if all podcast providers actually tagged their MP3s properly (with Genre Podcast and filling Album Title and all) but the reality is that more than half don’t and some of my favorite podcasts end up classified under Songs (typically under unknown genre)… Another side effect of a Podcast being classified as song is that ‘Fast’ playback is no longer available as an option.
Yes, I can possibly use MP3Tag to edit (add) the tags but Podcasts are really transitionary and this sort of editing is typically not worth doing as these are deleted right away after listening. So, my pledge for next Firmware update is that everything under Podcasts are classified as such.
I also have a minor pledge that Podcasts and Audiobooks are directly accessible from the top level menu as opposed to going under Music and then scrolling down to select Podcasts.
