Default Clip v2 with Mac OS

Hi, abi Forum.
I've got a Problem with my Clip v2 (great Player, btw).
I'm trying to connect it to a Mac for the first time. It's in MSC Mode of course (Macs normally can't handle MTP because it's developed by Microsoft, right?).
I can connect it, i can access the Root Folder (AUDIBLE, AUDIOBOOKS, MUSIC etc.) but when i open the MUSIC Folder it is empty, i can't see a single file.
Are they kinda hidden or something? Is there any way to get these Files without installing that MTP Addon Stuff?
Thanks a lot.

upvalue:

did you add songs to the player on a pc in MTP (or Auto Detect) mode? If so, you won't see them in MSC mode.

You can access them from the Clip, but not from a computer unless you are connected in MTP mode.

To fix matters you could: connect to a computer in MTP mode; transfer the files to the computer; erase the files on your Clip; switch the Clip's USB mode to MSC, and keep it there in the future; and transfer the files back to your Clip.

Oh, I see, since my Rockbox'ed Clip+ was driving me crazy when the music files weren't showing.

Turns out that they were hidden.
