Hi

But I cannot drag and drop audiofiles into it . I get the little stop-sign.

This means the file not compatible with uTool. This can be because not a stereo file or not a wav file or sample rate/bit dept not correct or you are using floating format instead of signed wav format.

I have to use the import function and thus creating copies of the audiofiles in a new folder that Utool creates ?

No as you have player only device you don’t need to use import function. The import function can be used import content (mainly recording) from your USB drive to your computer

But, the audiofile does not end up in the same audiofile folder specified by Utool . it creates a new subfolder within the already existing subfolder

Default File Locations
Project Library:
Specifies the default path where uToolwill save the song and playlist projects(.prj files).
The project files contain the location of source wave files and other details for a given project.

Audio File Library:
When importing recordings for uTrack devices, the song folder with mono wave files is created inside the Audio File Library folder. When creating song projects from the Home tab in uTool, by default the content of this folder is shown for selection.
It is recommended to have all your source wave files inside the Audio File Library folder.
