Did you read drlucky's 1st reponse in this thread?

Yes, I did. It does make sense, and probably works, but am I supposed to transfer all my files everytime I want to transfer a single album I bought?
Buying Clip Sport has been a huge mistake. It caused me nothing but headaches (and for 99% of other users too), and I can't refund it because I bought it far from where I live (during a travel).
But one good thing comes with this: a lesson. Sandisk? Never again.

another issue with folders is, if you have ripped muliple disk cds (disc 1, disc 2) etc. the folders show seperately in windows explorer but they are merged together when viewing them on the device.

This can be solved using an external program. The Sport does not update the FAT table after the first time - which is why people say they have to copy the entire library everytime they add a folder - you don't have to do this.
I use FatSort on OS X - works perfectly (Have done this a 100 times.) - once you get it working it takes less than a minute. Every time you add songs or folders run Fat sort and the FAT table will be updated and everything will be in alphabetical order.
Programs like FATSORTER do the same thing on the PC
read this thread - it has info about the Mac and the PC:

I hear you on that. All future MP3 player purchases will not be Sandisk.
The only problem is that Sandisk is one of the best audio quality players with microSD support.
Non-Apple players don't get tons of shelf space and such. And finding one that supports microSD is rare. For instance, I would love a Sony Walkman player, but no microSD support. I have like 30GB of music, and 50GB of video game soundtracks...so I need removable media support....and I'm poor, so I'm not spending $300 on a 64GB player or whatever.
Most of the ones I find here in BFE Iowa are cheap knockoffs or rebranded Coby players...which all suck.
When it comes down to it, if we want a decent sound player (and Sandisks do sound good at least), with microSD support, for a decent price, we're stuck with Sandisk and their lousy interface and rules.

Actually, the new Sony A17 indeed has microSD support--but probably not for you, at $300 for a 64GB player and the separate microSD slot (which can accept a separate up to 128GB microSD card, merging the 2 memories together). But, getting good reviews. And other players with microSD support: the FiiO X1 (around only $100 but with no memory--a bring-your-own-memory player; although, nicely, with 2 card slots) and the Cowon M2. Available online.
Personally, I don't find the Clip interface inadequte at all (staying away from the Clip Sport), although I always have wished that SanDisk had paid more attention to the firmware.
