1GB used to be very expensive and a large of storage for phone last time. But nowadays, 1GB only allow 2-3 of my FLAC music.

I know, but what I'm saying is (and I wasn't clear) that you can't use a 64gb, which is all I have at the moment. smily_headphones1.gif

...
Other than those issues, have been enjoying the sound quality of all my 16/44, 24/96, and 24/192 FLAC files.  Amplification is more than adequate for my Beyerdynamic DT1350s.  I noticed a slight cyclic noise when I turned my amp all the way up when I tried it out as a DAC, but this didn't get in the way of the sound of files during playback at a lower volume.

For the screen protector that was already installed, you don't just remove the tab portion - you remove that entire thing. The protector is already on the screen and that was just the backing.

Et al... I routinely use my 64GB card to update the firmware (I have my own theme that I'm constantly tweaking). I have my music in a "music" folder and just dump the .fw into the root. Nice and clean and haven't had a single prob upgrading yet (same applies with my 32gb). I wouldn't hesitate to use a card bigger/smaller than 32gb filled with music. That being said if you lose your music trying, don't blame me :D

I have updated firmware many times and never used an empty card

I use a 64gb card. Put it in the X3 and make sure to format the card using the X3

i update using my 64 gig card. i never bother emptying the card first. it used to be that fw update was from onboard, not sd card.

In any case, when you DO get a microsd card, make sure you get a card reader thingy too. The X3 read/write is pretty slow.

No problem, it threw me for a loop when I opened it too...and actually kept the tab on till I had time to really study what was going on. biggrin.gif

I know earlier, when I heard about all the issues pausing, etc., I said I would return this if that happened to me. Well, after playing for most of the afternoon and evening...this sounds so good (paired currently with my over-ear Momentums) that I would probably "suffer" through some pausing just to have this amazing sound. I downloaded a 24/192 copy of Norah Jones through HDTracks.com and cannot believe what I'm hearing. eek.gif Just simply amazing clarity and resolution.

Can someone please tell me the latest X3 firmware is capable of reading id3 tags and supports id3 tag browsing? I'm looking to upgrade my Sansa Clip Zip, but as don't have everything organized in folders, only via tags, so I need proper tagged browsing for my music.

 

Thanks for the help.

I have updated my firmware with music on the disk.

Hi,

 

I just received my X3. Is it possible to hide all the tracks that are in the memory (from the factory), short of deleting them?

post #6989 of 12312

Copy them from the device onto your pc. Otherwise you could try the 'hide' file atribute in Windows Explorer, although I don't know if that works.

Or you can try to rename them, that their name starts with an ".", that should hide them.

 

For instance:

.somefilename
