Drag and drop into player

by njorgene / January 22, 2012 7:31 PM PST

I have a Creative mp3 player which I dont find very user-friendly when it comes to organising sound files (I use this one for birdwatching; not for music).

Can anyone recommend a mp3 player which uses simple drag n drop (Windows explorer style) for organising files? I would like to create my own folders and the just bulk-drop files from my computer into these folders.

Five years ago that worked with my son's Creative player. He never used their software.

Did you try already with yours?

You have to make certain your player in question supports MTP mode(?) I believe that's what will work with windows, probably the creative too.
