So I took delivery of the Colorfly C4 today......and already I am having issues and problems with it. For all these individuals that knock Apple and having to use iTunes.....I must say that in 10 years of using varying Apple Products I have never had an issue with transfering files across, user interfaces or tracks not playing.
However of my two experiences with the Colorfly C3 and now C4 I'm afraid I cant say the same!!!
I am having major problem with it not recognising files and getting play issues.....
I am getting play errors with 16/44.1 files in WAV & FLAC and also 24/96 files in WAV. Why this is happening I do not know......My files have been converted from FLAC or ALAC using a paid for programme. Some of my 16/44.1 files play and others it will play one track and then give me error messages for the rest. None of my higher res files will play (these have been converted from FLAC to WAV).
I have tried to download the firmware upgrade and again having problems with this......it will download the zipped file but then wont extract it using jZip (however colorfly dont tell you what programme to use). It also tells you to transfer the file to the root directory...what root directory...when you have it connected to the USB it just shows as removable hardrive with no root directories.
I am really frustrated with this and this is now the C3 and C4 I have had problems with.....and at the moment just feel like selling the dam thing straight on and sticking with my modded iPod!!!!
someone please save my sanity!!
Also can anybody recommend a programme that will convert 24/96 flac files into WAV...that actually works. How do I convert a file that isnt supported by the C4 i.e. 24/88.6??
