Stozzer does it at 0.54 in his video.

Hm... I press the power button then it locks? ALl he does differently is press the power button again after swiping it. So if I dont press the power button before swiping it, its not locked?

Haha I will try it once I get home then will let you know. But besides pressing the power button, I do everything the same but the back button unlocks it.

Mine will lock and unlock the way it is supposed too.

 

When you tap the power button.

You will see:

 

Unlocked Lock -> Locked Lock

+ >>> >|| >>> []

 

Swipe directly across or press the three keys quickly in sequence...

 

If you do it correctly, the top icon will change to a Locked Lock only and the keyboard will be disabled.

If you do not see the Locked Lock by itself, your attempt did not work. Try again...

 

To Unlock:

Press the power button again.

You will see:

 

Locked Lock -> Unlocked Lock

+ >>> >|| >>> []

 

Swipe again or press the three keys quickly in sequence...

 

This time the top icon will change to an Unlocked Lock only and the keyboard will be enabled.

 

I still have the shipping protector on my screen until a proper screen protector arrives, so I have a hard time swiping to get the lock / unlock to function. I get better luck by pressing the keys quickly in sequence.

Well, I've been experimenting with that and sliding you finger is the best way. It seems that 90% of the failed attempts are not about you not being able to precisely slide you finger over the 3 buttons but more about the speed with which you slide your finger. You can make several attempts to figure out yourself the exact speed at which you should do it do unlock/lock the c3. Its something like avarage to slow speed and if you slide your finger fast it won't recognize the action most of the time. I don't lock my c3 very often as it actually is pretty hard for it to register a press in your pants, especially if it's the only thing in your pocket

I was in editing down some folder names and adding new tunes to the MicroSD card ( using an external reader ) and got everything nicely cleaned up for names. You know shortened folder names for faster sidescrolling screen info, that sort of thing.

Then I thought hmmm while I'm in here what was it they were saying about organizing all the file names again so the player reads everything in alphabetical order?

 

So all I did, and it took about 15 seconds if that ( maybe even a picosecond ), was make a "zzzzz" folder ( or whatever you want to name it ) in the main SD card directory, grab everything else and transfer it into that folder, then go into that "zzzzz" folder right away  and transfer everything back out into the main drive again,

 

Blammo.

 

C3 reads it all alphabetically now.

So easy it is criminal.

 

So long as you do this each time you make a change in adding files, it'll fix it up every time. It's really no bother whatsoever and way faster than even transferring in a new album folder.

 

I know it had been mentioned before  just a friendly reminder about how ridiculously simple it is.

 

Granted i did like it the old way, but this'll do fine

me just order another 8gb version..wondering if playing from the internal storage will be better than the micro sd!

No difference at all mate.

post #178 of 2237

I wonder if people have been reading the H20's comments on the CK4 and how the files on its internal memory sound better than the ones on the sd card? There are some fun to read threads lately - like imaginary jitter from sd cards compared to flash memory or static from clothes affecting the headphones' sound - I haven't read that good sci-fi stories in a long time.

post #179 of 2237
CK4+ sounds different between internal and external memory! I don't think it's got to with jitter, I think it has to do with a slight power drop when reading from the SD card. This limits me to 8GB of storage only! C3 is a true soldier and sounds the same just like the all the other players I've tried. My CK4+ is getting the boot fairly soon, it's lacking low end and overly potent mid range makes it unbalanced. It ha ones last chance to prove itself from the line out when my new amp arrives. Then it's game over.
post #180 of 2237

Well, I guess it's plausable. That has to be the first. Anyway, I thought you liked the CK4 - is it the sd card issue and the limited storage due to it or just its sound signature?
