Welcome to ABi

There's no way to do what you want I've ever found with any music library software. None of them I know are able to recognize files exist on the other drive and not copy it to the again. I've seen a couple of times when someone has posted how to do it with file sync software but the set up was so elaborate that all it took was the smallest mistake and you wound up with duplicates.

Even if the file sync software is properly set the sandisk firmware doesn't work with .m3u playlists made from files transferred in MSC USB mode that span both memories. The file sync software I know needs a drive letter to work so .m3u playlists are all that can be made from the files they transfer. Files transferred in MTP will sometimes work in playlists that span both memories but if any change is made to the files included in any of them the playlists breaks. They most often break even if you don't make a change.

I use the replacement firmware Rockbox on my sandisk players. That does work with .m3u playlists that span both memories. I put a few of my favorites on the internal memory and rotate new stuff onto the card. I save the playlists I make from files that are on either memory to the external memory. That let's Rockbox see all the files and the playlists work.
