    HI, i recently upgraded from a hd1 to a hd5, and im already wishing i never had. The only reason being, that i cant view my songs, the same way. I used the group option with my Hd1, and that meant- i could put together a group of songs like chill out songs and upbeat songs and listen to them when i was in the mood, ive found that the hd5 wont allow me to have any groups? only lets me listen to albums and artists, is this something that i can fix? please help.!

    They changed (or rather left) it to standard albums....due to consumer pressure I assume. As thats what every other DAP has

    I never really understood the whole groups thing, found it to be a pita. The hd5 excels in that now you've got playlists. Just upgraded to the hd5hs, what a steal at £179. Must have been a goof cause now they're out of stock and the price has shot back up to £209. Glad I jumped on it when I did. Very impressed with the improvements over the hd3. Cheers

    Yeah, I think playlists replace Groups, as that's something of an industry standard.

    Also there is the Genre selecting.....so for those songs you have that are "Chillout" you can change their Genre to Chillout and you have a group right there.
    But I do think they should add an Album or Artist Bookmarking system as well as tracks....And a searching function for them too....its hard to navigate especially after is starts going warp speed and you go straight past your artist.

    Yeah if it stayed at the normal scrolling rate before it goes warp speed it would be good, i keep having to hold it for short bursts, takes ages....might as well just press the button 100 times....then they'll probably crack in half completely.
