In MTP mode, you can easily make playlists out of your folders in Windows. Once connected, go to your music folder, right click on the folder. In the context menu that appears, choose "create playlist". A file named "New Playlist.pla" will appear. Name it what you want (that name will appear in your playlist section on the View), and place it in the playlist folder. You can then double click on the .pla files to open a simple playlist editor. You can dragg other files to it, change the song order, etc.
One other way of getting around you problem is to edit the "Genre" tag on your MP3s so that one type of music always has the same "genre" name. That way, if you want to listen to a certain type of music, it will be in the Genres section.
When I first got the View, I was longing for a folder view just like you. I think that is because we are simply used to working like that, not because it is better. Once you get used to it, the View has many good way of organizing your music.

Since loading this overtime I pause while listening to a book it turns off and reverts back to where I started listening since I turned it on that time. Is there a way to revert back to the previous firm ware?

Haven't been on here for months and nothing new. Still no update? Darn. My View is hanging up like crazy. XP
Silence fills the empty grave now that I have gone,
But my mind is not at rest, for questions linger on.
I will ask and you will answer.

Is the Sansa View still a current product? Over 6 months without a firmware update is quite awhile. This product REQUIRES wrap-around scrolling! This should be included immediately. I love the product otherwise but this is a major gripe.

Well, it should be a current product, but for some reason, SanDisk decided not to update the firmware, although there is still hope since they didn't officially stop, although I would doubt future updates.

I'm going to have to go back to 1.01.06 again, I think. This firmware wasn't giving me much trouble stability-wise, save for the odd occasional lock-up, but I swear, the battery metering has just gone insane in this thing.
On the plus side, things are looking good for firmware version 1.00.00!

Yeah no kidding this version stinks! Battery life is abysmal and meter is useless. Just now went to use it and its telling me dead battery. It showed about 3/4 full when I was using it just 2 days ago!!! Never buying Sansa anymore!! Version before this locked up all the time and the version before that wouldn't play videos.

Hi guyz. I emailed this msg to Sansa Tech Support last week:
This is the response I received today: SanDisk Response: (05/12/2009 04:51)
Hello, Thanks again for calling SanDisk Technical Support. It is our goal to make sure you have all the resources you need to get the most from your product.
Is this the "firmware suggestion thread" they are referring me to? Several folks on this thread have suggested its been quite a while since anyone at SanDisk has appeared here to give any updates, and that the latest firmware version, mine, is buggy and inadequately supported, maybe even terminally unsupported. Did Sansa Tech Support just simply lie to me? Is this forum being completely ignored? Are they likely fairly soon to fix the FF, Fast Rewind, wraparound, battery meter & battery life issues, etc., with a new firmware release? Or am I just dreaming? Should I just return the thing while I still can? Thanks.
*** If anyone from the the Sansa firmware development team is actually reading this thread, please respond NOW, so we can all see we are actually being taken seriously as customers, heard and supported ***

There has been no new firmware released for the View in over 10 months now, so everyone has assumed they've given up working on it. Likewise, no one from SanDisk had made any "official" statement (here in the forum or anywhere else) as to whether or not they are working on any new firmware for it.
I'd say, if you can return/exchange it, then do so and get a Fuze instead.
