They only say 64gb CARDS are supported...not 64gb of music on said card.  Not trying to be funny...sandalaudio mentioned it as well.  64gb of data is hard for some devices to handle.  It appears the X3 might be one of them.  32gb card for life!  :)

I would agree with that. Better than the Clip Zip.

It's a warmer sound and more bass heavy than the Clip too.

I hear what you are saying, but if the manufacturer is going to say it supports 64Gb cards, it's not unreasonable to expect it to support that capacity filled. 

 

There's no point in supporting 64Gb cards if you can only put 30Gb of music on them. That's just stupid.

Dude, this thread flows so fast.

 

I just wanted to say thank you to Bowei the Panda Man. I keep on following this thread and that guy has always been here and helping everybody who is interested in X3 and already bought X3 and all others. Extremely great job Bowei. It is me writing but please take it as it is coming from the all community.

Same problem here...I've been at it all night trying ti figure it out with no success, its rather disappointing. Keep in mind...I'm only trying to transfer about 20 gigs of data to a 64 gig card..and yet I have the same issue.

sorry for the inconvinence of X3, X3 do support 64g TF card, but sometimes it took quick long time to update the music library , please wait till it done, or check the TF card and make sure you have not storaged other files like photos, videos or audio file which X3 can't suppors.

Out of the box X3 sounds a bit edgier than I expected but definitely not a dull boring player. It's an excellent value for money against the more expensive DAPs. 192/24 files play really well.

 

I should have read the reviews more carefully about no metadata tag support for AAC/ALAC. This is really annoying since I have all my music purchased or ripped as ALAC.

 

I guess I can transcode to FLAC before transferring, but it's a stupid effort just to get metadata and cover art. I hope they add AAC/ALAC tag support via firmware update soon.

Yeah, AAC and ALAC if not Apple formats have trouble right now, an update should be comming soon.

Have tried a manual re-index, auto re-index, used the reset button, had the sd-card in and out, all to no avail. There is no common denominator to it, it is just missing whole swathes of artists and albums, some are MP3's and others are FLAC.

 

All artists and albums appear just fine when in my Sansa Clip Zip (Rockboxed), my Cowon C2, or my Colorfly C3. 

 

64Gb genuine Sandisk class 10 card btw, formatted as FAT32. Even tried reformatting it and copying the music back on.

 

Something screwy going on here, as since I reformatted the card and copied the music back on to it, it is only indexing albums artists with names A-R and any artists from S-Z are missing. Again though, putting the sd-card in any of my other players, it shows everything.

 

Additionally, the 'Category' option in the menu is only indexing the album that the X3 ships with in the internal storage, it is not indexing any of the artists and albums.  

 

 

Any ideas anyone?

 

 

 

Like another said, how many level's 'deep' are your artists? Try not to make it too deep although I do not know how deep the X3 goes right now as it seems 2 levels have been fixed.

 

Like another user said, do you see all your artists in 'Browse Files'? Or do you not even see all of them in there? If you see them in there but Categories won't show it to you, please remove the SD card, use a pin to hit the 'reset' switch at the top of the X3 (it is just a hard manual shut off). Turn the X3 on. Update lib without the SD card. And then plug the card in and hit Update lib again.

And sometimes you guys make me wanna do this.

 

 

Anyway, thanks dude! 

 

But seriously guys, there is no need to upvote every single one of my posts. Just that little post I made a few pages back if you ever see it again. Don't go out of your way for it or anything.

what kind of music are you storaged in the TF card. it will take quite long time if there are thousands of sound tracks.  X3 need to scan all the tags information and files information so it can create the music libaray but this is done in PC or Mac when you used iTune.

 

Also this is relate to the quantity of the sound track but not the capacitry. for example , it will take just seconds if the whole 64G TF card is full of 192K/24B FLAC or WAV .

post #3583 of 17217

BTW, once the music library is created, it will take less time to just update the library cause it just add or remove few sound tracks, unless you change to another TF cards which includes thousands of music.

I have 53.5Gb in a mixture of MP3's and FLAC. MP3's are all 256k or 320k. There are approx 7000 tracks in 400 folders. It indexes all artists from A-R, but does not index any artists from S-Z.

The indexing completes in 5-10 seconds and says "MediaLib Updated", but it is still the same, with half my music library missing. All tracks, both MP3 and FLAC are fully tagged, and my 3 other DAP's (Cowon C2, Clip Zip (Rockboxed) and Colorfly C3) can all index the card just fine.
