post #7681 of 17128

How large is the library? Maybe its worth attempting without taxing the device too much? At least if you get the same result that may give the Fiio techies some more info and then offer further suggestions?

 

Apologies if a silly suggestion, I don't know the full situation or history of issues. Getting to root cause may take several attempts with testing etc to discount certain things first. Sounds frustrating.

What fw are you running?

Use the hard reset pin up top the X3 if need be.

I have the FW2.1 installed. I am curious what FiiO support is going to suggest I try next. Witchcraft, no doubt.

They're probably asking you to work through things step-by-step so they can tick things off as being tested / checked. Can be frustrating and perhaps counter intuitive and even annoying when the thing just needs to work. I hope a way is found to fix or a consensus is reached where the device needs to be repaired or replaced.

Try using small updates. Meaning having say 20 folders at a time to see if that will work.

This man speaks the truth.

The SD card doesn't fit the X3?

I'd first check for hidden files. I remember reading that the thumbs.db - or whatever file Macs like to create can bugger the scan. Maybe something else got mixed in with your files (are you using drag-n-drop, or a music prog to add files?)

When I first got my X3 I plugged in a nearly full 64gb card and managed to do the database update in round 10 minutes. Even with switching cards the scan rarely takes any longer than that.

If all else fails I'd blame it on sunspots....

Hope you get it sorted.

The FiiO X3 sadly does not support SD cards natively as of right now. Only Micro SD. If you wish to use a SD card with the X3, you need an adapter.

I know as I own and love my X3 so why was he trying to shove one in .Should have known before buying it.

After spend six days reading from page 250 until end, I know this should be the most dumbest question. Sorry for I still living in stone age.

 

I have around 1,000 mp3 files, all songs be

taged album, artist, genre, etc as "MP3". No track number tag at all. I will play this files randomly during my working hour as background music. So it is easy to me to select Album -> MP3 -> Play Random
http://i1069.photobucket.com/albums/u474/mikroski/Misc/0714.jpg

 

I want to manage folder of my music file in very simple way like below

http://i1069.photobucket.com/albums/u474/mikroski/Misc/0715.jpg

 

Question is

1. Will X3 has problem to play one folder contain with 1,000 files, no track number?

2. Will X3 has problem for folder arrangement as 100 folders in root directory?

 

Thank you for any input :)

Not enough pictures in this thread...

 

Sweet new portable rig,  (Lowepro Rezo 50 Case works well for now)

 

And Another...

 

The 3M Dual Lock is a little high as we can't get the low profile stuff here in Canada...

Now if someone wanted to send me a chunk of the stuff, it would make this much nicer! :D  

post #7691 of 17128

Nice! My X3 is all banged up sadly. No more picture taking days left in it.

post #7692 of 17128

Ah, EAC.. yes, Deutsch command line expansionism and the seemingly endless searches on Google to do anything remotely simple.

Yes, I've taken a screw driver to the wee hole and bit by bit and levering it open.. this blasted compact flash card will fit if its the last thing I do on this Earth

Blimey.
I have been looking for a decent portable DAP for ages, was going to go colorfly C3, but really didn't like the responses on the forums, so I looked and was excited about the X3, its format /codec recognition... Very excited.

But reading (wading) through this thread makes me wonder.
Does ANYONE have a normal, working, stable X3?
Surely it's not that much to ask? I just see more and more products being released that just don't work sensibly.....which means you (we) are getting ripped off. Seriously, has this just become accepted behaviour out there? Or is it just a very few units (worrying enough).

I would welcome any decent repsonses that tell me to pull my meagre savings on one, because it is actually lot of money to me.

Does it actually work? Properly?
And if it does - anyone know of an Australian dealer, so I can legally return it if its busted?

Sincerely,
VERY Confused of Darwin.

Hi Cannikin,
I've contacted FiiO support and told them to let you send your x3 in for repair. I'll pm you the details, please keep an eye on your private messages inbox. smily_headphones1.gif
