Tried with a 64gb card, worked flawless.

 

Just making sure I understand this, adapter works same as other OTG drives that people are using. But instead of a pendrive at the end of a cable, this is a neat postage-stamp size unit taking a mSD card?

Yeah. Sure is neat. I have a tiny thumb drive with a micro USB connector I can plug directly into the X5, but the X5 doesn't recognize its contents

What's nice about the meenova is you can use it to transfer your audio content and it's faster than the player so for 12$ is really cheap for what it does. It's working great for any players supporting OTG. I also used it with my 128 GB microSD card and no issues. I have not tried the 128 GB card and meenova and the X5 though.

Though you know you're going to get more really soon, don't you?! :gs1000smile:

Thanks for asking! It's settled down for now but that dentist had chipped the tooth while trying to extract it and it's hurting when I eat. Have to wait until the 8th for my specialist appointment, hope the actual extraction will be scheduled soon after that confused_face.gif

HOWEVER from what I understand as long as a device supports SDXC and has firmware support for 128GB cards, it should work in theory. Don't quote me on that but for the low price of this adapter, we might find out soon if someone wants to try =)

 

[edit] posting the link again in case anyone missed it: http://www.meenova.com/st/p/m3r.html


Thanks :)

 

Ordered a black one, will get another 64gb card (128gb is all but impossible to get in the UK, and I don't want to buy from overseas due to fakes), which will push me up to just shy of 200gb of sweet sweet music :)

@Joe Bloggs asking again: will there be a new version of the liteGUI tool released, that works with the X5's firmware? The old version that worked with the (old) firmware for the X3 doesn't work, and this would make it very much so easier to edit the firmware.

I must read up on modding the UI, would prefer black on white for out in the daylight (sure will take a hit on battery, but would hope would be minimal).

I'm more than happy to give you an unpacked copy of the 2.0 firmware, and will pack it again too.

Here's the link to the unpacked firmware: https://www.dropbox.com/s/7w2n31w8tgmlmp6/x5.zip



The firmware i provided (unpacked) is the stock version, the scrollwheel direction can be "changed" by editing the /coordinate/launcher.ini file.

The numbers show the coordinates of the icons,

x = horizontal position

y = vertical position

= icon height

= icon width

"0" is the top icon
"1" is the 2nd
"2" is the middle icon
Etcetera

"5" is the scrollwheel you see on the left.

so for changing the direction you have to simply replace the position values for 0 with 4, 1 with 3. As the center icon stays centered, and the scrollwheel in the same place, you don't have to edit these.

Next you'll have to change the icons for the top and bottom positions. You can do that by renaming the icons :

you can find the icons in \litegui\theme1\launcher\

category_s_down_0.png
And
category_s_up_0.png

Need to be switched
Same for the others (Collect, EQ, Explorer, Play, Playing, Sys_set)

Many thanks for the info but I am not confidant enough to carry this out and don't want to brick my X5.

Please Please Please Joe can we have a setting for this as the standard scroll wheel drive me nuts.

Playing DSD file from the adapter.

It has a blinking light while reading.

I've explained most of this in the last few pages, included links to my dropbox files.
Due to the closed source of the X3/X5 firmware, modding is possible only up to a certain level.
Good luck!

I don't think begging will help :P

I'll keep the scrolling up to date, as long as needed/possible.

Has anyone tried using the X5 as a DAC for a Chromebook, and does it natively support most Linux distributions?

From my understanding it typically requires a driver, which is pointing towards not working with ChromeOS. I'm just wanting to confirm before looking elsewhere.
