I just added tons of songs and it just freeze at the "No 1538", don't tell me I have to remove 1 by 1 to check which one causing the problem? 

 

Is the update icon wheel still spinning? This happened to me recently and was some dodgy artwork.

 

I found the file by looking one-by-one at the tracks I'd just added, but I only had about 10 new files. What might help though is opening the card contents in your file explorer (Windows / Mac) and do a wildcard search (*.* in windows). If you then sort the results by file path you will see roughly the order the X5 scans in I think. Count down to around 1500 tracks (not including folders) and look for new tracks in that area (1500-1600) that might be the culprit. Check tags of new files one-by-one to find irregular tags or artwork.

 

Hope this makes sense.

I had the exact same problem and counting down didn't work for me. 50% of the times I tried to scan the library after resetting the device, it stopped at different track number. I suggest you to remove some albums and update every time the library, if you're lucky enough it may only take 1 hour or two. In my case it was a m4a file downloaded from the web.

Good point. My issue was consistently at the same number.

The logical way is to split in half and depending whether good or bad split in half again. You'll find the dodgy file in minutes, not hours.

Depends on which Apple power adapter you're referring to. iPhone, iPad & iPod adapters are ok. Macbook adapters are not.

Basically any 5V adapter should do. Preferably 2A. A lower amperage will just result in slower charging of your X5.

That's exactly what I did, but to figure out which file it was it took me one hour more or less, I had a 64gb full of music card (flacs and mp3s..)

Or stack the X5 with one of these:

(This will greatly postpone that inevitable day when the X5's battery will no longer hold a useful charge.)

Um, do you have an iBasso DX90? I do. I also have a Fiio X5. I think they're both great DAPs with a similar level of new-player bugginess that both companies are working hard to address. Just don't want people being misinformed about severity of bugginess with either player or developing any kind of us vs. them mentality.

Quick question to the Fiios Reps: Do one of you know when the hs6 will be available to purchase in Japan?

 

Interesting, is there any differences from the Japanese edition to the "normal" editions we are using?

Heyy guys, i noticed some of you have this issue with library update with buggy files, well i would just like to share my experience on how I found those buggy files. When you update the library, and it freezes, remember number that it freezes at. Basically if you go down the list of all files, following the folders in alphabetical order, when you reach the track with that number thats roughly where the buggy file is smily_headphones1.gif

Nope it doesn't spin when it scan track no: 1538. Last time I did that when I had a few songs added but now I had added about 100 songs. It will be very troublesome to check them one by one.

Dude, the method you mentioned. Is based on the new files that we updated? How do you executed this method?

Ok lets say i have 5 folders, each with 20 files. And the library update stops at 25. That means file 25/26 is problematic. In this case that file would be the 5/6th file in the second folder. Does that make sense?
