Just tried playing gapless album on X3, fw 2.05. Something is broken, maybe not player. A song was listed as 4 minutes, 44 seconds long. If I let it play, it gets most of the way through the song and switches to the next track prematurely. It switches to the next track at exactly the same place every time if I just let it play. It didnt do this for the previous tracks. I dont know whats up with that one specific song, maybe the track itself got screwed up. I scroll it to 3:29 and the player's timer stocks but the track keeps playing. The player completely freezes but keeps playing, then the sound freezes, then the player switches to next track. The last 3 songs didnt have this problem but this song just screws up the moment it reaches the 3:29 mark. I cannot make it play the song past that mark, it always switches to the next track. I'll try another album and see what happens.
The more I think about it, the more I think this might be some transfer issue with putting songs onto the mem stick and not an issue with the player. However, this really boils down to an issue with an excessively slow transfer rate (2.5MB/s) to the player and lack of exFAT support.
I've used the bootice and guiformat utility to do my formating, and i've used regular drag+drop transfer method for transfering songs. When I plug in to windows at work though, windows told me it needed to fix file system errors, even though my computer at home didnt have any problems. Dont know what that is all about.
I'm unable to duplicate this 'bug'. I tried a number of albums in gapless mode, but not one skipped at that time index (or any other). I noticed you mentioned a 2nd album in another post where you experienced the same problem. What albums/artists were these?
Have you tried using the built-in format utility that was included with firmware 2.05? I've re-formatted all of my cards with the built-in utility and it appears to have corrected some minor issues, especially the infrequent prompts to repair the filesystem when plugging the X3 into certain devices.
