1.) Yes it is easy to find a song. When you transfer music to the gmini, it sorts the songs by their ID3 tag which contains the info including artist, name, genre, etc.
2.) You can browse by artist, album, song title, genre, year, or playlist. or just by accessing the harddrive browser.
3.)no the songs are not squeezed into one file.
i havent bought an archos gmini400 yet, but before i buy one i want to know how the song list is organized. Is it easy to find a specific song you're looking for? is it like the ipod where you can browse by album, artist, or created playlist? or are all the songs just squeezed into one whole file where you have to scroll to look for one song??
