I am about to purchase a WD SMP but need help in getting one issue clarified. I have music stored in a number of folders (Country, R&B, Dixieland etc) on a hard disk. I want to select songs from various folders and have them play in order. I have read the manual and realize that I can not create a playlist using the SMP; but there must be a way to chose songs at random from different folders. I don’t care about keeping the list as it will change every time. The manual simply is not clear, so I called WD support and was told that I could do that and the instructions were on page 182 of the manual. I read it again and I must be dumb; but it still is not clear to me. If I had already purchased the player then I could fool around with it and perhaps I could figure it out… Maybe you do it by simply choosing a number of songs and add them to the queue?
If any of you folks know if this can be done, your advice on how to do it would be appreciated.
