you can't have a folder in a folder in a folder in a folder.
SD root-> folder -> folder in folder -> folder in folder -> audio.flac
that can't be read because the file is too many levels(folders) deep.
root -> folder -> folder in folder -> audio.flac
This could and should work.
on my X3 i have the following structure:
Root-> ARTIST -> ALBUM -> TRACKS.flac
Okay i understand. What I don't know is how I can tell if there are too many levels and what I did to cause this, if this is indeed the issue I am having, which I will admit sounds perfectly plausible. Is there some way i can eliminate some levels and shorten up my paths so that all the files show when I access them through Categories/Album?
BTW, thanks so much to CH23 and everybody else for all of your help and patience, it is greatly appreciated.
I don't want you to think I am unhappy with my X3. Nothing could be further from the truth. I am just trying to feel my way through as i do not have an awful lot of experience with this type of thing. Most of the issues I am having are of my own volition and not any fault of FiiO or the X3 directly. The X3 is a fine product, no doubt, and I am confident that you and your team will iron out all of the minor bugs in due time.
