The x3 took a few seconds to update when I put it back in and the first song did not play for about 5 seconds.  After that it behaved as it had before, with no problems except for an occasional song that gets stuck.  Meaning that pressing the pause/play button does not make it play, I have to back out to the folder level then select the song again. Not sure what triggers it but it's happened maybe 3 times but re-selecting the track works.

all my albums are in my format of choice, 320 mp3.

 

when an album ripped in 320 mp3 comes out at 81mb in size and that same album ripped in flac is 262mb (lossless level 0), then unfortunately re-ripping the gapless albums in flac and spending more £ on extra sd card storage is just is not an option for me :) i need gapless to work across all supported formats as advertised. wonder why the x3 beta testers did not pick this important, broken feature up?

Hi,

 

Might be teaching my Gran to suck eggs here but it might be of help to some....

 

I currently have 37gb on my 64gb Micro SD Card and all I did was drag and drop from my iTunes Music folder. A mixture of ALAC/FLAC/MP3.

 

The problem with the 64gb cards might be the way people are formatting them as I have no issues playing my music that are listed in their own folder under ARTIST/ALBUM/SONG exactly the same way as iTunes has catalogued them on my PC, and they all  play perfectly :)

 

I am using Firmware 1.2.3 - Sandisk Ultra Micro 64gb Class 10 SDXC card that I formatted to FAT32 using SDFORMATTER on Windows 7 64bit

 

I managed to make the mistake of formatting the card using windows formatter and it rendered the card useless until I put it in my Canon 5D Mark III Camera and formatted it with that back to SDXC ( note as per the link below only gadgets or card readers that use SDXC can remake them SDXC if you botch the SDXC formatting) , I then used SDFormatter and a card reader that could read SDXC cards and made it FAT32.

 

Please read THIS PAGE for all the info regarding formatting SDXC cards to FAT32 etc.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Mike.

 

 

PS: my X3 indexes the tracks etc no problem ;)

Thanks for the input Mike, and for some people there may be formatting issues, but that isn't the problem for some of the rest of us. There are at least 4 people here (including myself) that have a problem relating to the way the X3 reads folder structures and does not do any indexing. See here... http://www.head-fi.org/t/651769/fiio-x3-thread-full-review-http-www-head-fi-org-t-663600-impression-fiio-x3-high-fi-low-price/3750#post_9691790

For people having issues with folder indexing, playback etc, can you please e-mail support@fiio.net as per James' request. I have sent them the details of the issues I am having with the X3.

post #3921 of 17125
Ooops, I forgot to mention I did already email Fiio support as iinstructed by James...I just figured I would mention any additional information I had on this issue.

Hi,

 

no worries, I knew other people had other issues, however mine also indexes the files no problem although not full mind you.

 

I wonder if it is card related ?

 

Mike is a Sandisk Ultra Class 10 SDXC.

I have the same card as you, as do at least 2 of the other 3 people that have reported the same problem that I am having.

Yesterday I was trying to listen to a Michael Jackson song on my rockboxed iPod.

Would'nt play it (kept trying, play 2seconds, then stop for 2, then start again....)

I noticed it's a 160megabytes flac.

I had to convert it to a 44100 sampling rate to get it to work.

 

...................Would the X3 play those files?

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

damn, that's a pity, I wonder if it's worth starting a thread with users listing details of firmware,m card, OS on PC and formatting programme to see if we can narrow down the cause.

we are working in this issue but it take time to fix it , and unfortunately we still have not simulate the same problem by ourself. it is quite strange and there are not Chinese user reported it to us. maybe we can work together to figure out what condition should cause this issue.

 

and before that, please make sure,

 

1, format the 64g/32g TF card to fat32.

 

2, upgraded the music library first.
