1. Is there a file manager that people prefer to manage their music?
2. How should I go about loading files onto the micro SD card? I'd like them organized by album and with cover art if possible.
There is no file manager as such nor can one be installed, but the very intuitive UI is organized by all music, album, artist and genre tabs. The fastest way to load music is via a card reader attached to your computer. File transfer is much faster using a reader rather than connecting the DX50 via USB.
Personally, I just create and name on my computer a folder for each of my ripped or downloaded album or group of albums that want to show under "albums" in the UI and it works just fine. Album art shows ok on all but .wav files (which do not carry the metatag info)
I have never attempted to tag or retag any of my music files using the various tagging programs and the above method of transferring music has worked perfectly without freezes or any other issues. I also use the DX50 playlist function and from time to time drop a favorite file into a playlist. Although one cannot name or rename a playlist, the basic function works just fine.
