Get MM to randomly transfer files

Post by brendansull » Sun Jun 28, 2015 11:53 am

Hi guys,
I hope this is the correct area for this thread.
Just a quick question regarding transfer of files to a sdhc card.
My main playlist is over 40gb, and in my Sansa I have an sdhc card that is just 16gb.
Now I could go and buy a bigger card...but just wondering is there a way to get MM to randomly select 16gb of music from this playlist. I can obviously do it myself, but a random selection would be handy.
Are there any scripts to support this?
All help appreciated

Go to Tools > Options > Portable Device Sync

Find SDHC card in the list; select and click on 'Configure'

Go to 'Auto-Sync (-->Device)' tab.

Check the box for 'Sync random subset of selected files up to device capacity'.

Select any other settings that you might want while you're there.

Random Subset only works for Collections (which can reference a Playlist).

You can also create an AutoPlaylist limited to xGB referencing the Playlist you want synced.
