The New iRiver AK100: A High-End DAP - Page 609

post #9121 of 9131
I know I'm really late to the game but I've just picked up a (almost) mint used AK100mk2 for stacking duties with a Mojo.

I'd like to know where I could buy a volume knob protector or if anyone has one for sale I'd be really keen to buy it off you (please PM me).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Sorry all,

I forgot to mention that I'm after what @Scorpion667 posted in post #8507 in this thread!

Thank you all!

Update: 4 years on, AK100MK1 still going strong. Will update again in 4 years time.

Do a google search for the knob protector. I remember getting mine in ebay all those years ago.

Thanks, icefalkon... Spent many nights searching and all leads came to dead ends/expired auctions...

I've about given up. So I'm measuring up the volume knob to try rapid prototyping to finalise the design and fitment before I get a metal shop to machine a brass (or 306L steel) one for me.

Thanks you all! And it's good to know AK100's are still going strong! I'm well pleased with this mk2 so far!

If you're using it with an amp, you're maxing out the volume on the AK & using the amp for volume anyway, so the volume knob shouldn't be an issue unless it was mistreated by its former owner. I got mine (MkII) in late 2013 & even by that stage volume knob protectors were hard to come by. Never had problems with the volume knob, it's a lot more sturdy than some people think/it appears at first glance.

MistahBungle, thanks for the additional info. The mk2 I bought has been very well cared for by the previous owner and I feel the very slight bit of wiggle is normal from what I've read here in this thread.

I suppose I only wanted one for that additional peace of mind. After all "accidents" can happen...

It seems the files I transfer to the SD card are disappearing after I restart the DAP. I never had this problem before the newest OS update.

I can see and play the files after they are transferred but if I restart the player they vanish.

Any help would be appreciated.

My last post can be ignored.

I will clarify the problem a little bitmore. I tried transferring files from my Mac and then tried also on my laptop both having the same issue. I even took the SD card out of the device and transferred directly to the SD card. In all these instances the same problem would happen where the new files were just disappear. I fix the problem by resetting the device back to factory settings, then after that all the files I transferred would no longer disappear after restarting the device.

Have you done a "Rescan" after you transfer the files?
