    DAP - how fast can you play songs from the micro sd you just inserted, minimum buttons pressed?

    What DAP has the quickest access to songs on a micro sd? Instead of turning on, swipe to access menu, choose play music, choose folder, choose sd, choose songs, hit song to play. I just want to insert sd card, turn on, play. Is this too much to ask?

    Is there a forum setting, or browser setting, where I can view Head-Fi forums within the full screen without having to scroll to the right? I looked but couldn't find it.  I mostly use IE (10), and have Chrome (33) available.
