I have confirmation from Fiio via there fb page that they WILL be implementing playlist (m3u) support in the near future, both for X5 and X3. I posted this already somewhere else on head fi, another X3 thread. I too actually found it hard to find out about Playlist support, I was in a hurry as B&H were selling the X3 for $149 at one point and whether it supported this feature or not was a deal breaker. Sadly it doesn't at this time (hence I don't have one).

This was an attempt to see if the previous library file was some how corrupted. When I update, I let it continue until I get the message indicating that updating is complete.
If the firmware only supports 5800 tracks total then that is the problem. I have over 7900 songs on my sd card.
This is the first I have heard about the 5800 track limit. WOW... that is awful. Just when I think I am being limited by Cowon's 8000 file limit, Fiio do this?! X3 and X5 can take 128-256gb storage, can only read 5800 tracks?! wtf?
This is even more of a deal breaker.. srsly...
Anyway, before I read about this I also read somewhere else that other users were having more success having their tracks implented to the id3 library (categories?) by having ONE folder and all the music files within (what a mess). But oddly it was working for many users with ALL the files being seen. Worth a shot. Use some 'Search' program, search for *.mp3 etc within yer main music folder, then copy the results to a new destination and then copy that across to the sd card.
