Fiio X5 Thread - info updated on Jan 17th 2014 - Page 949

post #14221 of 14234

I use Blue Harvest, which is a paid app, but same deal.  Supposedly Fiio will implement this in the firmware at some point to automatically delete the Spotlight and other Mac crap.  I had to start doing this with my Colorfly C3.  Did it with my DX50 out of habit and now with my X5.

Thanks guys,

 

Yes, I'm using a Mac.  I was not aware of hidden files being created.  So thanks RELIC.  I'll try that system.  I'm surprised it only creates the hidden files with some of the songs.

It puts three files (sometimes four) on your card each time you plug the card into a reader or the device into a computer, both via USB.

 

Folder : ._.Trashes

Folder : .Spotlight-V100

Folder : .fseventsd

Folder : /Trashes

 

Just delete these after you finish working on your card (plugged into Mac via USB) BEFORE you eject the mounted image and unplug.  Make it part of your workflow.  With Blue Harvest I just right click, choose BH, delete the files with a single click, and then eject the disc.  Since the Fiio has two cards, I do it twice.  I'm not sure how the above works but it should basically be the same order.

Yeah, with 'eject for windows' you literally drag your mounted drive (mSD card) on to the icon and it ejects and cleans at the same time, including the files olddude mentioned above. Easy as 123. I think the reason only certain files are 'duplicated' is those are the ones that you accessed in OSX so then finder indexed them and that is what you see on the X5 (.musicfile.format or whatever).

Basically, anything that has a . before the name is part of the OSX index system.

I must still be doing something wrong as the folder is still there - i pressed the shoprtcuts key while selecting a folder in the artists category and nothing happened - no delete option and it did not do it automatically either - ???

You need to eject your cards with a program like 'Eject for Windows' and that'll clean up the duplicate files before it ejects from OSX. .

If using Windows then I don't know.

Edit: This is what I use. Here's the link

I am using USBClean from the app store, the developer keeps it up to date and responds to any questions.

How many icons are you getting?  I could only see 4, but if you scroll left to right (on the modified fw I have), you'll actually see the first icon is actually 2 (one is hidden).  They need to reduce the size of the icons so they all fit on screen.

 

So make sure you are in Folder Browsing mode, select a folder, click upper left button to show menu.  Options should show TF1, TF2. OTG, Play Arrow, then go one more right, and you'll actually end up back to the left again showing a slightly off-set hidden icon.  Clicking that deletes the folder.  Careful though, as Joe states, there is no confirmation check - it just deletes.

Many thanks - this worked after a slight delay - you are right, the icons need to be smaller

I am having hard time deciding between x3 and x5....I am more concerned on bass output of x5....many say it's less compared to x3 and x3 has dedicated hardware bass and treble which x5 lacks

 

But since x5 has eq....so can I boost bass using it ? Like boosting lower freqs ?

post #14230 of 14234
I just ordered the x5. And a pair of psb super awesome headphones. I also ordered 2 extremely cheap 128 gb micro sd cards from china. I know that I'm taking a gamble on them working or not but for 10 bucks why not. Has anyone tried these micro sd card nockoffs?

I have to drop the high eq. paired with an amp like the e12 it gets nutz (vid above) without e12 it puts out plenty of bass (vid below) unless your a chronic basshead like me in which case your just an amp away. The X3 is a "band eq" I don't know where that is centered so I skipped it.

 

The screenshot on the vid below works good

Even ten bucks is a gamble for what is obviously a scam. Only reputable company making 128 micro cards is Sandisc and you need to pay at least $100.

Thanks for the vid but what you mean by band EQ of x3? Is it bad than x5

The true random play with the 2.36fw is going to save me a lot of money on buying new music. With 3000+ songs now, I'm hearing a lot of songs that I've never heard before. :smile:
