The battery lasts 25 hours, so you should be fine for 12 hours drive time.
As far as the complaints in your last sentence, it does have file name browsing. There are two ways to do this: 1) You can choose which letter of the alphabet to browse in; or 2) You can use the Find by Keyword feature.
I have not uploaded a folder to it yet to see what happens, nor have I slapped a SD card in it to see what happens. I'll probably do that tonight. I have no idea what MSC is, so I can't help you there.
I have too many full-size SD cards, so this model was perfect for me. I didn't want to purchase extra micro cards that would limit their use for my purposes to only an MP3 player.
One thing I have found is that the screen turns off after a few seconds if you slide the the on-off button to the lock position. I listen to my long files this way. You can unlcok the player at any time to see what is playing.
