I just purchased a brand new Sansa Clip Sport.
I just updated the firmware and installed the SD card with all my music and playlists.
The card works perfectly on an older Clip Zip and all the playlists show.
The same card doesn't show all the playlist on a brand new unit.
There are roughly 7 lists not showing up.
All the playlists are valid and in the correct location.
Why is it that there are ALWAYS issues with M3U playlists when Sansa comes out with a new unit?
I'm ready to take this thing back already.

Well it appears that that Sansa Clip Sport can't even read a SanDisk Ultra plus Micro SD card and accurately read the File Allocation Table on the card.
SanDisk makes a product that can't even use memroy cards that it makes itself!
I have to go to an older and slower card! WTF!
The Sansa Clip Sport is a MEGA-FAIL!
I'm sorry I bought this POS.
It's really something when an Android App called PowerAmp is a better MP3 player on a phone than a dedicated product from SanDisk .
SanDisk has lost me as a customer.

I tried communicating this issue to SanDisk via their chat support.
What a complete joke!
After all the problems I've had with this piece of hardware, to add insult to injury
I get some newbie who doesn't have a clue and decides to run through her script
and not even read the problem I presented to her.
SanDisk, You have become a company I will no longer do business with.
You put junk on the market and then don't do anything to fix it.

Well, After repeated tests, I have found that this new POS called the Sansa Clip Sport only allows 50 M3U Playlists on an SD Card!
SanDisk, If you had published the limitations of this POS before bringing to market, you wouldn't have sold a single one!

As you just purchased the player, return it and get a full-featured Clp+ or Clip Zip. The Clip Sport is a player best for specific and a bit limited purposes.

You actually wasted time posting that as a reply.
You might as well have told me water was wet and rocks are hard.

WIll never happen,
If they took the time and went back to what made them successful they might learn something.
They are too busy chasing after Apple.
If they brough back an updated Express unit that was basically just a USB stick like the iRiver Volvano,
they'd really have something again.

Why further aggravate yourself? Return it and get a Clip+ or Zip model that is more "full-featured". The Clip Sport is a limited model for a limited market. SanDisk has never made any secret of that, and had you researched and/or read any number of online reviews or comments on it before purchasing it, you could have saved yourself a lot of grief and anger.
Unless your intention is just to bash it here on the forum, in which case mission accomplished. Maybe you should move on now.

"Too busy chasing after Apple"? To the contrary--Apple has exited the dedicated-DAP market.
