It albums almost every time I use the X5 now, on almost any album, I just started playing Grand Funk Railroad's Closer to Home album and after finishing the 1st track it started playing 1-2 seconds of the following songs on the album before finally playing the 8th and final song on the album completely. This is getting to be very annoying, can someone please advise what I should do here.

 

I can't remember if you mentioned previously if you re-flashed the firmware with the current version. If not, I would give that a try.

 

If you did, search this thread for the 1.23 beta & give that a try. You might want to try the 1.27 beta, but there were a lot of comments about issues.

Warehouse

Granny 

Bartender

 

and on the X5 it seems to not display the songs when browsing that way and instead it looks something like:

 

01 - Warehouse.flac

02 - Granny.flac

03 - Bartender.flac

 

Is there a way for things to be viewed with song title pulled from the tags only instead of with the file extensions?  Thanks in advance and I apologize if this didn't make much sense.

It makes total sense, but from what I've seen there is no way to do it.  I would love to see exactly this feature, as well.

Thanks for the reply.  Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing a setting buried somewhere.

What file format is the album?
What is the bit rate?
Do you have high resolution album art?

No, you don't want to use FW1.27 beta. FW 1.23 beta was good.

formats vary, but mostly FLAC's on my X5, at various bit rates (24/96, 24/192, 24/88, 24/44, etc) they all seems to be skipping now. No album art in any folders, I don't care about the album art on a DAP honestly. I wonder if there is a new firmware in the works to fix this, or if it is even a known issue?

@goldendarko: I don't have any skipping with any files on my X3 so far, including 16/44 FLACs with embedded artwork. I forget, have you tried red lashing firmware 2.0?
post #8695 of 19552
I don't understand what that means "red lashing" FW 2.0? I have updated to FW 2.0 and have started to encounter this problem, which has become increasingly more frequent to the point that it's about 90% of the time I play albums the tracks start skipping, turning it off and back on does not solve it any longer.

Re-flash, not red lash. Install the firmware again over the current in case it did not load properly the first time.

I'd agree. I haven't had a single error on a wider range of music and formats (and no-one else is reporting this) so there must be either a fault with the FW install, the memory card(s), the files or the player. I think you'll have to isolate any that you haven't already specifically tested for and then maybe seek some support from your retailer. :(

the firmware is now more stable / enhanced since from my 1st day on preview unit (v2.0 vs v1.0)

at that time, I couldn't hear dsd files, hanged, etc.

Damn you, autocorrect!!!

That's perplexing. Are your FLAC files heavily compressed (compression 8) or on the other end of the spectrum not compressed at all (compression 0)?

Someone else posted this problem and I am wondering if the X5 has an issue with either unpacking the lossless FLAC container or reading large file size FLACs. I use compression level 5 without any issues, nor do I have any issues with high resolution tracks purchased from HD TRACKS.

Also, I'm not sure if it was in this thread or the X3, but I remember someone said that having gapless ON fixed a lot of issues.
