The problem with this is as I said, files loaded in one mode cannot be seen while the player is connected in the other. The player will see and play files regardless of the transfer mode, but it will be hell for you to manage your files, only being able to see some of them at any one time. Best to format the player, which will erase all user-added content, manually set to either MTP or MSC and then re-load everything.
Which mode is better? That depends on what and how you use the player. If you subscribe to a music 'service' like Rhapsody or Audible audio books or 'borrow' audio books from a library then you must use MTP mode in order to transfer the permission and time-stamp codes along with the files.
If you don't use any of these services, or otherwise want to play DRM-encrypted files then MSC is your mode of choice. It allows your computer to see the player as 2 additional and separate 'drives', each with their own drive letter; one for the player's internal memory and the other for the memory card slot. Much easier, logical and straight-forward.

One would have thought that Sansa would have realized by now that auto mode has it's problems. They've been using it at least since my first funny looking M something or other, that used a single AAA cell. Didn't get great bettery life but the fm was probably better than later offerings (but I've no real complaints now that I have a clip zip).
