Ok I will try again, one more thing, do you have to go in sequential order or can you skip to the newest FW?

 

You can go directly to the newest firmware (and if desired, you can easily revert to an earlier firmware). The key thing to remember is the file is compressed when you download it (as a .zip). For example, the latest version is named X3_FW2.1_EN.zip when you download it from the fiio.com.cn website. When you extract the file from the zip archive, it should be named x3.fw EXACTLY, no matter what the version of the firmware you are trying to install. Hope that helps...

I must be missing something, i just tried it again extracted all files to my card and it still showed FW2.1. I must be doing something wrong when extracting, but i only know this one way.So after Im done downloading from there website it shows the X3 FW2.1 and above it it reads EXTRACT ALL FILES, what should be the next step.

Hi,

 

I have upgraded to the last 2.1 Fw.

I have updated the Library again. It took around 2 hours, but it is still not organized.

The only files organided are the ones that came with the player, the Chesky Album.

The others files I can Play in the Folder, but they are not organized.

I took the card out, re-inserted it, updated the library, but no luck.

Any help will be wellcome.

Thanks

Antonio

Probably the best thing to do is extract the archive to desktop first. It seems the archive contains another folder with the docs/drivers etc. After you extract to the desktop look through the folders for the x3.fw file and copy that only to the root of your sd card. Should be all....

 

Maybe in the future people having format problems could post a screenshot of their directory structure? Definitely would help other troubleshoot. Just a suggestion.

 

Cheers

Hi,

As my last post, I was having problems with X3 Library scan.

I was not seeing the Artists, Albums etc in the category... I was seeing the Albums only inside the folders.

I tried many things, but end up formating the SDCard using the formater inside the player.

I re-imported the files, and now I can see the Artist Album structure, but some of the tracks are missing (I still can see it inside the folder).

Any help will be wellcome

Thanks

Antonio Souza

FW2.05 and above enable gapless playback. Some people report a brief click between AAC tracks but we're working on it. smily_headphones1.gif

Main menu -> Player Settings -> Gapless Playback (use volume keys to toggle on/off)

And mp3 isn't gapless, but that might be worked on sometime in the future, apparently.

With the X3 going for $139 at Adorama, would you guys say it's a good buy? Looking to replace my Zune HD.

post #6747 of 17127
OK after much time.... finally back to where I was with solidly working X3. I really am having a love/hate relationship here. Back to love again. By the way, I ended up updating the media library like every 2-3 cd's to be on the safe side. I found out the issue and I have one album that would freeze the X3 each time it would try to update it, thus the reason for updating the library to isolate any other album conflicts.
