If you use MTP, your file names will get all messed up and you won't be able to control where files end up.

That's funny, I'm using MTP and not having any apparent issues. (By the way, my 1st post ever to this forum, which I've heard great things about).

I just got a Sandisk e280 (01.13.18A, version 1) last Wednesday (from, refurbished for $60--wow) and RockBox'd it Saturday. I returned the player to MTP mode after installing Rockbox (so it would show up as a "portable device" and Windows Media Player 11 could sync with it in theory, although I use drag-drop because the sync takes too long), and I don't seem to have had any problems.

The only possible exception is that I transferred about 15 MP3s (non-DRM 256k MP3s from Rhapsody) and all play OK except for one of them--Rolling Stones "Satisfaction" (yes, at 39 I'm old) fails if I play it using the factory Sandisk firmware. It plays fine with the Rockbox firmware.
