Just got my X3, so I figured I try this out (although you've probably done it already). I set the idle to 30 sec. Loaded up my SD card (Kingston 64GB) with ~57GB of files, and did the update (only took a couple of minutes). All 106 albums showed in my library (didn't bother to count songs tho), no freeze, no time out, pretty much painless - except that musicbee was having issues with the SD card, but a driver update fixed that. So far so good, but.....
Is the transfer rate over USB (internal memory) typically between 4-7 MB/s. My card reader hits ~12, and my external hd (usb2.0) can do ~20, so this seems really slow to me.
I'll need to some listening time before I can comment on sound...but so far no complaints.
BTW have you tried your transfer with MB yet? Like I mentioned I really had no problems after I upgraded my card reader drivers, but I didn't need to bother with file conversion either (just set to embed the artwork)
