What if you write zeroes to the memory? And then rebuild the database with it totally empty.

I have over 3000 files, I've split them into multiple folders by alphabet, all the artists with A go into the A folder, etc.

 

For whatever reason, two sections refuse to be read, all my artists beginning with D and all those with E.

I figure their may be a corrupt file in each that is messing up the reading of the folder.

I have almost 64gb of music that I am trying to put into the device. It reads probably all but about 7 gb's,

Would you recommend the purchase of this device, as it is now? I'm reading it has a lot of issues, but I really need a new DAP, since my Clip+ is on its last legs.

I think it's actually quite good, except for my issues, which are related to the amount of files I want to carry around, I think it's an excellent player, imho.

most of the issues are firmware related.. (which Fiio is committed to continue to improve).most of the whining is around "why isnt this like an ipod?" the bottom line is that those issues do not prevent you from enjoying music using this device. battery life, durability, sound quality and portability are all above average for a sub-200usd device

Yes. James will announce firmware update and provide links for download usually in this thread. The firmware file usually comes in a zip archive.You will need to download and unzip the file and its extension is .fw

You will then need to copy this .fw file into a blank microSD card formatted in FAT32 format. Press the "power" and "back" buttons together for a few seconds and the device will initiate a firmware update.

File not found" error.  I have pushed the reset button on the top of the device as well as the software reset to factory defaults but he problem persists. I have even deleted all of the songs on the device and when I go into Catalog it still shows song titles.  Is there a way to reset the Catalog files/database?

The music plays fine when I select the files through the Browse Files option. 
 

 

please email to support@fiio.net, our staff will help you solve this problem.

It would appear that the X3's onboard file deletion function is basically useless.

 

yes, there are some bugs but we will fix it in the future firmware. in fact, this can be fixed by deleted the database file in PC/Laptop, please email to support@fiio.net to get help about this. the reason why we don't release to public is because maybe people will have problem to deleted the right database files

Just received word that my X3 should arrive this week! I'm pumped. This will be my first non-iDAP and I think for the price I paid, I'm certainly getting plenty of bang for my buck! My reshelled TF10s should be very happy.

Hello James,

could you tell me/us what about fixing problem with distorssion in the left channel in ogg vorbis files? Most of my library is ogg vorbis and it's a big problem for me. When do you plan fix this problem? I know you will fix it in the future, but I want to know some approximate date.

 

Thank you and regards

Artur

James knows about the OGG playback issue. I had emailed him when units first hit Hong Kong about it. (I think around June)
Sadly I don't get much more of a reply then"we are working on it".

That may well be the truth , it may be big issue, it may be hard to fix I honestly don't know.

Maybe China uses don't use ogg I can't comment. 

I do feel king of frustrated though blink.gif 

Lets see

Yes, please add USB OTG to X3, James.

It will allow an user to connect a 2TB self-powered portable hard drive. Alternatively, using an external USB DAC/amp is also enabled by OTG.

With OTG on X3, I don't see any special reason to buy an iBasso DX50.

If I were to use a self-powered portable hard drive, I might as well be in front of a computer. I can't see any justifiable use cases to even go through the trouble to implement OTG.

OK, it may take a whole day to update the music library if someone connect X3 with a 2T or 3T hard disk, I don't think it is a good idea :) 

 

people need to know the music library is created by iTune in PC, but not in iPod/iPHone, so there may only very few people will like to try this. also don't forget each time you plug or unplug

 

the hard disk, the DAP have to update again, that is why iPod/iPhone never support extra TF/SD card.
