Or maybe this utility: http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=197.

 

I used this:

That doesn't matter. The album art needs to be in the tags for it to show up in the X3.

 

I assume that can be done via foobar?

That's the one I use. Works perfectly.

I just put my 32gb SD card into my laptop right click > format and selected quick format. am i doing it wrong if i do it this way? why would i need a standalone tool to do it if the inbuilt windows tool does it?

You mean you can select Fat32 in the file format drop down box? You wont see it  if you are on Win7....

Question regarding the FiioX3-

 

I currently have Fiio’s E12 amp paired with an iphone and often use qobuz streaming over wifi.  For playing stored music files my iphone is limited to flac 16-bit.    I would like to add a similarly sized Dac and the ability to play 24 bit files portably.  Would Fiio’s X3 work for this? (I’m assuming the E-12’s amp is better than the one in the X3?)  Is there a wifi-ed version of the X3 that would allow me to take the iphone out of the equation?  (one that matched the E12 would be perfect.)  Thanks for feedback.

i use mp3tag to get album art. It downloads after a quick search in decently high quality (500x500 is the most i ever bother with). Its just a pain considering the number of albums i have and maybe 3 of them actually have any art on them. All my flac files are properly tagged, just my mp3's arent.

BTW, i dont have the funds right now for a 64 gig card so i keep all my flac files as an mp3 copy. Do you guys know of a tool that will keep that stuff mirrored in mp3 format? I have some mp3 and mostly flac in my main library, but id like to transfer everything as mp3. a rule like "if mp3, copy it over, else if flac convert to 320kbps mp3 and transfer over, delete mp3 copy" would work out.

ok cool. was just curious. saw all these threads about using this tool and that tool but wonder why they were not using the inbuilt windows tool

Hmm I'll have to try that again. Mine choked out when I tried it last time.

Well there you go.  Straight from the designer.  Components do burn in but you probably can't hear the difference.  Has anyone done any ABX testing using a new X3 and one that has been burned in?

Do cuckoo clocks burn in?  We just got ours out of the shop to replace the music governor.  It plays so much faster that at first it was startling.  Now we both agree the faster rate is so much better.  So, at least in the case of our cuckoo clock, it definitely sounded better and better the longer we let it burn in.

 

I wonder if the X3 burn in process is similar to the cuckoo clock burn in process?  Similar other than the obvious difference that cuckoo clock technology was fully mature before the nature of electricity was well defined.

I know I probably shouldn't feed the troll, but you're reading an inference in James remarks that simply is not there. Nowhere does he say that burn in does not make an audible difference and nowhere does he say it does. In fact one particular part of that post from James, "the burn in help(s) to improve some spec of the capacitor" would actually suggest that burn in does improve or at least change the sound in some way, or do you think that improving the spec of the capacitors won't at least change the sound if not make it better? In any event that is all I have to say on the matter. I am not going to get dragged into a long drawn out argument with you concerning this.

You need it for 64GB cards. Windows formats anything bigger than 32GB to exFAT but you need fat32. 32GB or less you don't need it (in fact, you shouldn't need to format those at all...only those which are bigger than 32GB need re-formatting).
