Pros: Sound quality, interface and battery life

Cons: Firmware 1.32 partially fixed MSD card issue

System - Windows 7 32 bit, USB 2.0
 
I think there is a serious issue with AK120's latest firmware when reading both micro sd card slots.
 
1) When i use two micro sd cards(Sandisk extreme 64GB) formatted with exFAT file system, AK120 is able to read and detect only one msd slot and not both. Wierd because when i play any song, it shows two msd card icons at top left corner but recognize only one.
 
2) Since it is trying to read both at the same time but could only scan songs from one, AK120 system hangs or slows down. when i use only single MSD card, it works fine.
 
I think firmware 1.32 partially fixed micro sd card detect issue, i have already raised this issue with Iriver...
 
Pls. advise...
 
Thanks,
Indra

I have two class 10 SDHC cards one Sandisk the other ADATA both formatted first off the 120 then inserted and loaded with music, no issues at all with them.
I have the same problem
MSD card formatting issue sorted, Iriver korea emailed me formatting software 'ridgecrop_gui_format'.
 
First format your MSD card using NTFS from your PC/Laptop and than format it into FAT using this program. Both External 01 and 02 slots are working fine on AK120. Thanks to Iriver korea.
