I bought a sansa mdisk 240

I can not figure out how to get a playlist on it.
I can get music on it and play the music I get onto it - but not a

I use a shell script to copy files to it - since my mp3's sometimes have
very long file names. When they are copied to the sansa they have names

That was easy to use in Linux (gtkpod) - but I don't want to buy another

I have the e280 and I've been struggling with this myself.
The playlist format is a specially-formatted UTF-16LE text file.  I don't like that either.
