Hey Groovus, sorry for your woes....

Odd, as the S should behave identically to the E in this regard....

One additional thing to try [and I neglected to mention initially] - do you have MTP Porting Kit installed? Google it. It is from Microsoft and apparently updates key files on XP and higher systems that do not have WMP10 or better installed.

Install it after reading up on it and then give the step by step instructions another shot...

Please report back any success/failure so we can better understand this.

thanks and good luck!

EDIT: From the E and S manuals [same text from both]...
 Some computers that already have Windows Media Player 10 installed may encounter
file limitations (AAC, video files, etc.) when transferring by drag-and-drop. If you install
Windows Media Player 11 from the Windows Media Player download site, you can solve
this problem, allowing you to transfer by drag-and-drop again. Before installing
Windows Media Player 11 on your computer, make sure to check whether your software
or service corresponds to Windows Media Player 11.

So, based on the above and it seems that the E/S expect to find WMP11 installed on target PCs. I have not upgraded WMP since the initial version that came bundled with XP but I did install the MTP Porting Kit on all my PCs which I think installs key files from WMP10-11 without having to install the whole WMP app. I believe this accounts for my success with stuff like playlists and Winamp and my E345.

check it out and try it...
