Not sure it will work, but if you create separate folders on the USB, maybe the ride command allows you to select folders to play. Copy the songs over into the folder. Example: Rock, Country, Western. If not, USB drives aren't too expensive. You could have one for each playlist.

I tried creating different folders, but it didn't work. Only way I know is to just have separate thumb drives.

Have you tried creating a notepad playlist file?

1. Store your files on your USB stick in your usual manner.
2. Open Notepad in windows. (Press Windows+R to open RUN, type NOTEPAD, click OK)
3. In the Notepad window, type one song per line in the order you want the playlist to play them.You need to put the full name of the file and the extension (e.g.:- .mp3 or .m4a).If you have a file in a subfolder, put the name of the subfolder first, then a backslash (\) then the song name. Continue like this if you have
subfolders within subfolders.
4. In Notepad, click File then Save.
5. Select your USB stick from the Save In list.
6. Note:- Select "All Files" from Save As Type!.
7. Enter the name for your playlist in the File Name box, and put ".m3u" after it.
8. Press Save and close notepad.
Note: To edit your playlist in future, simply right click the playlist in Windows Explorer and select “Open With” -Notepad.

It's worth a try but might be time consuming depending on your files.

I do have a USB with songs but I know use Spotify. You can create different playlists. You can download the songs so you are not out of luck if your phone does not have service like with Pandora.

Not sure what the problem is. I have a USB with about 1500 songs on it separated into 10 different folders (01, 02, 03, ... 10). The songs in each folder play in order. It even moves to folder "02" when it reaches the last song in folder "01". If you press and hold the right "skip" button, you can manually move to the next folder.
