Yes, the FiiO X3 does support AIFF.

 

Anyway, my fish tank is now empty. Time for some ice cream. I'm a bit tired.

Thank you very much. I'm not sure why I couldn't find that info in your review and i read it in it's entirety twice. I also spent abut 45 minutes or so doing a Google search with out finding a definitive answer to my question. I may not be the sharpest tack in the box but I wouldn't characterize myself as stupid either and for the most part I have always found that i am fairly efficient at finding info online on my own. This time not so much. I will openly admit that I am a bit of a neophyte when it comes to all things computer particularly computer audio. I have been loading uncompressed WAV files exclusively on my previous DAP/MP3 player, an old Creative Zen, and now the X3 and have been spending a lot of time tagging or at least partly tagging the files manually. I figured AIFF might be a good alternative as it is also uncompressed, which I would assume puts it on level footing sound quality wise with WAV, but fully supports automatic tagging and ID3 tags. Once again thank you and hopefully I won't need to bother anyone here for a while with my tedious inquiries.

As a User of iTunes and IPhone with Apple lossless I'm missing some features within the X3 menu like showing the album artwork and some other.

Maybe I'm too stupid but I couldn't find out how to play all files from both the inside memory and the sdhc card.

When I want to play all files e.g. random play, It always plays the preinstalled Chesky files but not my music from the 64GB SDHC/TF card, where my Apple lossless files are located - because the built-in memory is too small.

Is It possible somehow or not? If not- couldn't this be implemented in a future fw-upgrade?
Sorry for some typos - Most of them are Apple-made. Thanks for some hints.

Sincerely
Theseus

probably missed this, think I how to update the X3

Thanks

I don't go into device specs all that much in a review. Not that anyone should.

 

I also do realize the qualms you had with this. AIFF is not exactly listed by FiiO to be a supported format. This may be either that support for it was spotty or it may be hit and miss. Either way, AIFF works for me and plays fine. 

 

Bother away, but just like you did. Look at James excellent FAQ, the X3 product page, and the first page of this thread and possibly use a few 'smart' search words in this thread to search up any questions you may have. We here in this thread can help you if you have any other questions. If you have any other qualms and can't find help or if its any other inquiries, you can also email fiio support.

I'll format your question into English to see if this is what you mean. You are trying to ask

How to format mSD card using Mac OS X systems so that the X3 will be able to use it.

Is this correct?

 

If so, you insert the mSD card into the Mac with a SD to mSD adapter. Then you pop open disk utility and format it that way to FAT 32. After its formated. Insert it into X3. Shut off X3, turn X3 on and go into system settings to see if the X3 properly identifies the mSD card and all its space properly. This is to ensure that you won't be loading GB's of songs onto the mSD card to only find out you or disk utility botched the format.

Thanks. Will try that. yeah, that is what I was trying to ask :)

Disk Utility is a bundled utility/program that comes with modern Mac OS X systems. However its formatting for FAT is not so 'specific' which may yield some problems which is why I recommended to do a test with the X3 to check for detection AND that it sees free storage space. 

 

If it works, you can start adding songs on. Let us know if you meet any indexing issues. 

 

If the formatting doesn't work, you can try to do it again with Disk Utility or use any of the web's myriad of free formating programs to format the mSD card. Keeping in mind that formatting deletes the data on the card if you had any in there. 

 

Good luck young snapple, may the quirky Did-You-Know bottle cap information give you the luck and skills needed to overcome this struggle.

recognizes the memory card

Enjoying the preloaded files, nice touch. I like that biggrin.gif

FW1.25EN was just released today. If you would like you could install it right now as you have an empty mSD card.

 

The biggest thing this update fixes is id3 tag support for Apple (AIFF, ALAC, AAC) formats so that they can be identified in Category view. Along with other bug fixes. If you use Apple formats a lot, I recommend you get the new FW.

It seems like if I shake the X3, I can feel something moving inside. Can anyone confirm if this is normal? Thanks.

post #4227 of 17129

ok, am listening 

I down loaded zip file x3-1 fw, just put that on the card? Does it require  unzipping , like the old days?

Wonder if it will be better sending you a PM but then again somebody else might benefit too

Confirmed. I do not know how FiiO's audio muting relay works. It may be that thing? If it can make a physical relay sound, then it may be the object that is shaking.

 

The E17 had a shake as well, but it was just the internal lock mechanicism having 'loose' tolerances allowing it move around a bit.

Download FW1.25EN. It will be in a compressed folder.

 

Unzip it and place it into the mSD card. Root menu, not any of the folders. Just plainly in the first section of the mSD card.

 

No PM's. As you say, this will benefit others.

 

Then turn off X3. And press and hold the ok and back buttons to update.

 

If you have any other questions about updating, please read James FAQ on the X3 or FiiO's updating instructions.

I googled auto muting relay but I can't see what it is. There doesn't seem to be a reason why it should be loose? This is the first electronic I've owned that has something moving inside :S
