its like the studio isnt seeing the card at all but its visible and writeable in the studio when connected to the computer.  i get the same result with the rocoo ba.


What brand\model card are you using? I mistakenly bought a counterfeit 64gig card and I was able to load files on it, but the V 3rd was never able to read the card correctly. I now have a 64gig Samsung Ultra Micro SD/XC class 10 and it works great. I know that you have already deleted the system folder, but have you tried resetting it? I have to do that on occasion.

Thread Starter 

mine is a sandisk,  when the last one died they replaced under warranty but what ever the problem is its got to be the card.  its not vissable to any dap ive got.

 

weirdly if i plug in the studio to the computer with the card in it, the computer can see and use the card so the studio is communicating with it.

 

tried resetting so its not that either.  does it matter what the file allocation size is?

If you are having issues on both units I assume it is the card that might be messed up.. Have you tried getting another card to see if they work?

well it was a warrenty replocement so i cont see them sending another but..................

 

so i had the card in the fiio x3 and it couldnt see it but on running format external storage it formatted the card and then it could see it.  so i poped out the card, put in the studio and hooked it up to the computer.  suddenly i can write to it and it seems the studio can see it.  fingers crossed it works.

 

weirdliy now the 32gb card ive been using now cant be seen by the roocoo ba and its just freezing when trying to scan it.  no idea whats prompted ether issue

Pitch the system folder contents again.

I have one question regarding this unit allocation size mod - should I format both the internal memory and SD card to 2048 unit allocation size or just the internal memory (typical size for formatting 64 gb SDXC cards to FAT32 is 32k).

EDIT: I meant changing unit allocation size.

I don't think you should format the on board memory but I could be wrong

Just the inboard. I like 4096 best.

What is it you like best about 4096? The sound quality? If yes, can you describe what is the difference in sound quality between 2048 and 4096?

Thanks.

Thanks.

I'm interested in this as well (as I understand it with 2048 unit allocation size the mids are warmer, there is more bass and the highs are smoother).

I have another question regarding firmware/SDXC card. Namely, I'v purchased a new Goodram microSD 64 gb card, I've formatted it into FAT32 by the software reccomended in this thread, I've installed on Studio V the Dynamic software reccomended in this thread. Could you please confirm that this is normal:

- when I'm in the Resources/External Media folder I can't play songs i.e. I can see all the files in this folder but when click on any of the files by the center button the player freezes;

- the songs from SD card are played via the Now Playing folder;

- songs on SD card are not groupped by Studio into separate folders for each artist and/or album i.e. in the Now Playing folder they are all visible and are sorted in the alphabetical order (while in the Music folder, which is for the songs located on the internal memory of the Studio, songs are groupped by Studio V into separate folders for each artist and album).

I will add that I removed all unncessary tags from all my songs via mp3tag (i.e. I only left artist, album, title, disc number and track number tags; I've deleted all album covers).

Could you please also tell me what is HDMS function?

I've went through Brooko's review and am I correct that in order to have all songs on the card groupped in separate artists/albums folders I have to load some music into the internal memory?

Am I correct that HDMS function works like line out? Once it is enabled the volume is set at the maximum level and I read on the HSA page that HDMS function is for connecting external amplifier to Studio V.

Hi - sorry missed this earlier.

 

When my SV3 first arrived, it had 3 tracks in the internal memory (assume test tracks) which I duly deleted.  Form that point on I could no longer use tagging to sort by artist, album etc (folder modes till worked fine).  Through trial and error I worked out that as soon as you have a single tagged track in the internal memory, all your tagging becomes available again.  Weird - but it works.  I use folder mode for virtually all my listening anyway.  The one thing I wish HSA would so is allow me to turn off scanning the card at boot.  I don't need it scanned for folder mode.  That would cut the boot time down to a couple of secs.  I've suggested it to Jack - but at this stage he couldn't see it happening.

 

As far as HDMS - I'd suggest you ask jack direct.  I've never used it - but it does appear that its so that you can use the headphone out as a line-level signal (ie to a separate amp).

Broko, thanks for your reply.

I've loaded some music to the internal memory and then inserted the card and voila all the music on the card was groupped in folders. Moreover, the music from the card appeard not only in the Now Playing folder but in the Music folder as well.

But, I have still one unanswered question - is it normal that when I'm in the External Media folder I can't play songs i.e. I can see all the files in this folder but when click on any of the files by the center button the player freezes.

The HDMS "feature" just sets the volume to maximum.

This is pretty near to a standard line out, I don't see this on the 3rd, but it was 

on my black Studio-V.

Imagine how good it could have sounded with a proper line out.....

 

Using HDMS it sound very good with both Graham Slee Voyager and Epiphany O2, 

but the form of the Studio doesn't make it easy to pair with an amp., and volume wise it

just doesn't need it.

 

If you use HDMS, Turn if off after use!!
