I'm assuming that the Sansa e200 (yours) and m200 (mine) series work the same.
It uses the ID3 tags to classify the 'mess'. The non-music audio you are listening to probably doesn't have ID3 tags. You can edit the ID3 tags. With Fedora Linux there's EasyTAG. Should be something for Windows too...
You can still use directories for file organization.
I got big problem in Little China.
The Sansa E280 I got was supposed to be versatile. I don't use Rhapsody, but I do listen to lectures, books on tapes, etc., pretty much all mp3s. So Joe Blow has a series of three lectures. So I create a folder called Joe Blow and added three folders, Disk 1, Disk 2 and Disk 3. Simple, right?
I navigate to Joe Blow, select Disk 1 and listen away, or so I thought. No, Sansa throws all the files into one folder and makes a huge mess. And, mind you, I have the device in MCS USB mode, which means it becomes a data device and I can drag files to and from.
So I need someone who can tell me how to fix it, else I pack it back up and have to return it, which I'd hate to do.
The manual and all the reviews said that what I'm doing should work, or am I missing something. Please help!
