The same way you make them on a computer (on XP this would be File\New\Folder in the default windows explorer)

You may be confused by the fact that the lists you see on your player's screen (Artists. Albums, Songs, etc.) are not from the file or folder structure you have set up on the player, but from the information contained within the ID3 tags of the audio files themselves.

 

If you scroll down the Music options towards the end of the list, you'll find Folders. In this view, it should be the same as you see the structure you have set up.

Go all the way to the end of the Music choices--past Album, Artist, etc., until you see Folders. Then you will see your folders.

 

For the other lists (Album, Artist, etc.) the Sansa sorts by ID3 tags. They're useful. You can read about them at this link:

It's hard to guess since you didn't give any details about how it is showing up, where (computer or player), or how you want it to be.

Re: How to make folders to seperate my music?

I just recieved my first clip+. I created new folders via My Computer and placed MP3 files in them. The folders do not show up under the folder menu tab on the player. Thew files can be found, but not sorted like I want them. Any ideas?

They'll most likely be sorted alphabetically or numerically, just like on your computer (by default). On your computer, you can determine how you want them sorted, but this is not possible on your player.

 

You can however, creatively play around with the file names to sort them to your liking.

As I indicated, the folders I created do not appear on the player. The player came with a few folders already on it. I can see them with My Computer, just can't seem to create new ones.
