Sure.  On my Mac I right click on the desktop to create a new folder.  I name it whatever I want, artist/material.  Say, for example, Neil Young Various.  Then  simply assemble whatever music files I want in a 2nd folder, until I have what I want.  To get the order I want, I renumber them so that they line up correctly.  Then I open XLD, a free Mac sourceware app, go to Open Folder in it, open the folder with the music files, put an appropriate picture in the box so that each file will have the same picture (say, in the case above, Neil Young).  Then I go to Edit Metadata in XLD and I... edit the metadata so that each file has a name and an artist, nothing else.  I check the box for Compilation, though you don't need to do that.  Then I run Extract on XLD using the FLAC setting and it creates, in 01, 02, 03 order, my files, each properly tagged and with a picture embedded in it (I point it to my Neil Young Various folder, so all go to that folder).  When done, I open the folder and take out the log file, then simply drag and drop it into my SD Card.  Pop it in the DX50, it scans, and Bob's (well, in this case Neil) my uncle.

 

If you use a PC (my condolences), the procedure should be the same, with a different app.  Pretty simple, really.  The only issue is that, unlike an iPod, the playlist file is an actual file, with size, not a phantom playlist with no size.  But with big SD Cards, that's really no issue.

I NEVER carry my player in my pocket.  I have a small bag that keeps the player upright so there is no stress on the plug/socket.  I learned the hard way with some Ultimate Ears and an iPhone not to carry it in my pocket.  YMMV, but that seems to solve the issue.  I find the LO on the DX50 quite clingy when I plug in my iems.  No issues.

But having a bag to keep the player upright in your pocket would defeat the purpose of having a pocket-able all-in-one DAP. I mean, it would add bulk to the player and if that's the case, I'd rather have my cellphone and a c5d in my pocket.

 

I see your point, though. Is there some sort of pocket clip to keep the player upright in my pocket or I should fanny pack it?

I bought a small ammo bag off of eBay or Amazon, it's got belt loops and a flap, my DX50 and C5 slide in nicely, I have a small baggie of Kleenex next to it, it stays upright with no issues.  I don't think my setup would even fit in my pants pocket.  Shirt or jacket pocket, sure, and that would also keep pressure off the jack/port.  

 

It's smaller than it looks in the pictures.

Ammo bag it is! Thanks for the idea~

I rather like using a leather case intended for a smart phone, attached to my belt.  Get the right kind and it fits the dx50 perfectly, allows me to use it without ever putting it in my pocket.  Sits comfortably on my belt.

Has anyone had this problem with their DX50?

Mine has been working perfectly for about 2 months but most recently when I start an album from the directory (folder browsing) I'll start the first track which it plays fine then instead of going to the next track it skips to the last? Then the album just stops.

Anyone had this?

I Just did a factory rreset and reinserted the card, but not sure.

Many thanks, fortunately I am a Mac user

I get that on sometimes. Played a playlist of an album I'm not familiar with start it, it turns out it stops after the second song because that was actually the last track

I haven't had that. Is it just one folder?  If so, probably a corruption of something in that folder.  Check the folder or redo the folder and make fresh files.  If it's more global, and the same behavior is in several folders, than I would do a reinstall of the firmware.  You already did a reset and pulled the card, so if it happens again, put a new firmware in.  Might have been just a hiccup and you fixed it.  If not, new firmware should.  If it doesn't could it be the card?  Try another?

Mine has had nothing but problems for months, I finally rock boxed it and all is great! No freezes at all everything works better than it ever has and best of all it sounds better more transparent which is what I like more. Just my .02!
