if this doesn't work, it's not my fault, but you could try the camera connector kit from apple, with this app: (cameraConnector)

Sorry, X3 will consume a lots of power from USB port so it is not a good combo even it works.

okay i have to ask one last time, is there anyway to make it shuffle play the contents of the entire sd card?

post #6305 of 11352

yes, go to play all then choose shuffle or put all songs on single folder on sd card, then browse files to that folder and play with shuffle mode.

i tried few times to spot wav or flac vs mp3 differences and on a blind test using a Sony X1050 i thought an mp3 was in fact a wav. Headphones were Grado SR60.

 

May I correct one thing? Instead of 'good' hearing I´d say 'trained' hearing. That´s all :D

 

But it´s completely correct, the sound of mp3 is much better than its reputation.

My hunch is, with the target market for the high end player, the company doesn't have a lot of people that are worried about mp3 playback at all (outside of the ones you got stuck with only available in mp3 format as mentioned above).

 

Things that make you go 'hmmmm' as they say.  I wonder how 'bad' mp3s sound - fortunately I can check here locally as I believe they are in stock in a shop.  I will also consider the dx50 although it sounds like it has more than its share of issues as well.

 

You just want to play something that is dear to you in the best quality possible considering the codec it was stored in. I understand. If FiiO implements what others and I suggested, you will be able to. If not, you´d have to convert it to .wav for the X3... or you can still play it in perfect quality on your PC :blink:

If you do "play all" it will play all your catalogued files no matter where they are. I don't think you can restrict it to the card, though. Is that what you want?

post #6313 of 11352

i think it should play whole card but mixed with tracks copied to internal memory.

ah but its not doing that, selecting play all only plays the onboard storage.

Are your files all tagged, and have you done an "update lib"?
