It comes formatted for FAT32, so there is no reformatting needed. I'm going to put all my classical music on it.



 



BTW - CAN ANYONE REMIND ME WHAT PROGRAM I NEED TO STRIP HIDDEN FILES OFF A MEMORY CARD WHEN COPIED FROM A MAC COMPUTER?



 



Thanks, Peter


 



Does anybody know if they are available in Europe? Where did you get it Peter?
Thanks!

I have been using Clean My Drive & it has worked really well. It is a free App from the Apple App Store.

I used to use "Eject For Windows" but switched to "Clean My Drive" after someone in this or the X3 thread tipped me off to it. It's kept up to date, whereas EFW isn't.

Clean my Drive failed me on a couple of occasions when I've added songs to a sub-directory.  Went back to EFW and it worked perfectly.

I use the Terminal app on my Mac.

 

Applications > Utilities > Terminal

 

 

dot_clean /Volumes/X5\ TF1 

 

(TF1 is the memory card inside the X5)

Is there a charging dock for the X5

Nope, just USB cords for charging.

Welp, looks like I'm joining the club :beerchug:

 

 

(The X5 club, not the father's day club.... nope nope nope nope I enjoy sleeping).

 

Called around and was able to get a discount on one. Wasn't a huge discount, but the way the prices run on these, I'm happy with any.

Thanks for the heads up on that one, I've never seen it before. Does it troll through all subdirectories?

Hey guys - I'm new to head-fi, but have used it as a reference for a long time.  I just received my X5 and two 128GB Micro SD cards today; I updated the X5 to v2.05 beta and I'm currently loading music onto the cars.  The vast majority of my music is FLAC; just wondered if anyone knew if there was a max # of songs allowed now that larger cards are supported?

 

Thanks,

 

Praz

The same as before... five thousand-ish... unless they have changed it in their current Betas... (this is only for library creation!!! For folder navigation you can have a whole lot more! :p)

Thanks for the quick reply!  Good to know that folder navigation won't be impacted.  I'm not sure if the beta upped the limit (not mentioned in the change log post..but I'll check once I get past 5800 songs).

 

I guess the database is used for searching via category?

Correct - library is for navigation via Artist, Genre, and Album
