This is how I solved the problem of Window7 not seeing a linux partition and my SSH - FTP client not having permission having permission to write files on the RaspberryPi.  I hope this will help some of you that want to keep your playlist with each new MoOde update:  Here's link to the write up with screen shots - Moode Playlist Save

1.     Using SSH Client - FTP into your MoOde player and copy the Play list folder here:
2.     Copy the folder to your desktop hard drive.
3.     Install the latest moOde release  onto your SD card.
4.     Open SD card on you Windows 7 computer. Copy your playlist to the top directory of the SD card (windows 7 can't see the Linux partition on the SD card):
5.     Boot you Raspberry Pi with the newly installed Moode player.
6.     SSH into your moode player, open a cmd window if one is not already open.
7.     Type: Cd /
8.     Type: ls
9.      type: sudo fdisk -l
10.  Linux can't yet access the dos partition Type:
           sudo mkdir /mnt/sdcard2/
           sudo mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/sdcard2/
           cd /mnt/sdcard2/
           cd playlists/

11.  Copy the playlist files to the moOde playlist folder, type:
                     sudo cp -v *.m3u /var/lib/mpd/playlists/
12.  Check your work, type: 
                     cd /var/lib/mpd/playlists/
13.   Unmount the dos partition, type:  sudo umount /mnt/sdcard2
14.  Good work -  All done, now it's time to set you your new player!
