I e-mailed FiiO a while ago now asking about the limit when it was limited to 5800. At the time, they said that when they extend the limit, it would be to 20,000 tracks. I don't know if that is the case with 3.34b or not.

20000 should be decent enough. I think my 160gb iclassic is sitting at round 17000 (aac320). Don't think I've even hit the 5800 limit with my x3 yet (64gb only, I'm still waiting for the 128gb cards to drop to a less offensive price here)

We getting there. I saw NCIX offering 128gb for $89.

64gb micro SD cards seem good value now but I agree that 128gb cards are far to expensive. I have been using a Phillips 64gb card for quite some time now. I am going to replace it with a 64gb card by Lexar as this card happens to work fine in a device that said it would take 32gb at max.

 

Does the X3 cope with multiple different brands of micro SD? I have heard that some devices are limited and they only work with particular brands.

Where you buy it from is more important than the name brand. I have Sandisk and PNY and they both work good.

Getting better, but considering they can be had for $59 in the states atm… Too bad the exchange doesn't even make it worth while

When you refresh the media library on the X3, does it update at a slower speed as you get more tracks? Obviously it would take longer but does it actually slow the updating speed down?

 

I happen to have swapped around my cards from a Phillips 64gb to a Lexar 64gb. Could the read or write speed really affect the updating speed?

 

I have 4044 tracks at the moment. When I had my previous card, I had just under 4000 tracks and the media library updating speed hardly took 1 minute. Probably because I have mainly 320kbps Mp3s. That takes up about 47gb of space. Now it seems to take over 3 and a half minutes with the Lexar. My Phillips card was 10mb write speed and 18mb read. Even that isn't super fast. I have looked around and I can't actually find the read and write speed on my Lexar card.

 

I have seen some people comment that the X3 takes way longer to update than the times I have given. Is the updating speed to do with the number of tracks, the space it takes up or the read/write speeds of the card?

 

It just seems strange that is takes almost 4 times as long now.

 

Thanks if anyone can help.

Same card format?

I've always wondered what the deal with update time are myself. I don't think I've ever had an update take longer than 2 minutes (64gb kingston ftr.). I've don't know if the process of adding/deleting tracks could have an effect though. I know fragmentation shouldn't have an effect on sd, but I have found my cards tend to get a little flaky after doing this for a while. A fresh reformat always seems to do the trick.

Yes, it wouldn't work at all at first when it was the incorrect format for the X3. It is fine now but the update speed just seems to be a lot slower than when I had my other card.

For any Canadians out there, Canada Computer has stacking kits for $3.
