Default What is your Syncing method?

Hello everyone. I've played with Sandisk Fuze and I really enjoyed it. I'm thinking of getting one. But before I do, I'd like to know how you all sync with devices whose memory capacity is smaller than your library.

Do you: drag and drop media files? Whenever you want to alter the contents of the device, do you have to alternate between deleting files on the device and uploading the new content? Or...

Do you: drag and drop playlists, and the software is smart enough to change the content -- deleting the unincluded content from the device -- and you just have to wait for it to complete?

Do you: have some other method?

Thanks!

Regards,
Bravin Neff

Drag'n'drop to my Sansa Clip in MSC mode. Everything else is too much hassle and takes too much time for me.

I drag and drop if I'm moving whole albums, and sync with MediaMonkey if there's songs on the albums I don't like(like if a cd has 8good songs and 3 bad) and my podcasts

I wish I'd thought to set a stopwatch or look at the clock, 'cause I just sync'd 6gb into the Fuze, and it seemed to take an eternity!! Before that, I reshuffled the internal memory around.....Can't wait to clock the database refresh time after this lol

Not as bad as I thought it might be....4 1/2 minutes

Drag-n-drop with Fuze and Express, Creative Media Explorer with ZVM.

The one time I accidentally let the Fuze sync with WMP on my work computer, all hell broke loose.

I used to use a Rio Nitrus, and I liked the way the software worked except that it couldn't transfer from the player to the PC. Otherwise it was easy to see what was on the player and manage what I wanted to listen to.

Drag and drop, too. And thanks to my kind brother's early Christmas gift, I now have a 12GB Fuze, too!

it's pretty cool, isn't it? I had just the 4gb for the first 5 days, and anguished over what to put on it, and what to leave off....I still did after I got the 8gb card, but not nearly as much. I love being able to listen for hours at a time, days in a row, and not hear the same song twice...so congrats!
