    Hey Guys,

    We have two MP3 players in our family that use Windows Media Player to sync music with. These are the Sansa e250 and the Sansa Clip.

    What is the simplest way (in windows media player) to designate which songs go to which devices? Obviously each person has different tastes in music, and do not want the exact same songs as the other. This is what I am trying to figure out.

    How can I tell certain songs to only go to certain devices? Thanks!

    I also have the e250 and I've been using Musicmatch to load it up, so I'm not exactly sure how it works with WMP, but what I do is edit a playlist to get the songs I want and determine the size in MB then drag-and-drop it in. Use different playlist for each player.

    Ah! That makes sense. So, essentially, you just create a playlist with all the songs you want, and drag the playlist over?

    Yes, that should do it. I was looking at WMP 10 and it looks like you go to the Sync section, create a playlist, hit sync and it should copy the files to the player.
