The Sansa Clip portable media player has two methods of receiving information from your computer: a basic drag-and-drop feature, or through Windows Media Player. Whereas the drag and drop feature is less organised, the WMP music sync copies information directly from the media player's music library. The Sansa Clip is able to automatically synchronise individual tracks or stored playlists in WMP based on your device's configuration settings, and requires a USB cable to transfer data.
