Yes as of yesterday morning the card was formatted within the unit as FAT32. Still experiencing the issue. One thing I found interesting is that the regular Windows Format only allows NTFS or exFAT format so I had to use the HP USB Disk Format Tool which allows FAT32. This happened both with the card inside the included USB adapter as well as in the X5 unit but worth noting nonetheless.

 

HD Tune error checking underway on the card. Too early to tell as the scan is only at 6/64GB currently. Fiio has been contacted.

Why did you use a utility if in X5?  You MUST use X5 formatter to ensure best chance of no problems. Please tell me that when you did card yesterday, you used X5 menu to format it?

Nop, but great point actually. I just figured a FAT32 format is a FAT32 format regardless of source program. After the error check is completed I will transfer my music over to my laptop, format directly from X5 then transfer the songs back. Thanks for catching that, will report back.

Yup.. makes sense especially coming from an iDevice. Apple used tags but the C5 uses actual filenames.

Only option I can see is to remane the files.  I had to do about 1500 files on my card.  If you're on a Mac, get Better Remane 9 or something like that (in app store) and you can actually bulk remove the first 3 characters.  Tons of options for renaming.  I'm sure there's something like that for Windows.

Wait wait wait.  The X5 doesn't read tag info?  So whether you browse by folder or category, you still just use filename info to choose songs?

In theory yes, but in practice, no!  I had skipping in hi-res files on a FAT32 PC formatted Sandisk, reformatted within unit and straight away gone.

Not saying it will cure crashes, but best to discount this first.

No, MP3Tag adjusts all the separate tags. X5 reads these, but not track number (think I recall). Its good practice to have track number at beginning of Track tag and actual Filename, then never any order problems in any player anywhere!

@Joe Bloggs,

 

Just wondering if the option to manually enable/disable the EQ functionality for higher sample rate files can be added. That way we can try to implement it at our own risk to see if we can find a combination that works for us.

 

Thanks.

 

Hi All,

 

I joined the site just to follow the discussion on the X5.  I'd like to second this request.  I'm no engineer, but my old Cowon A3 could EQ FLAC files that were 96/24, and I would think the processor on the X5 is a lot more powerful than what came with the Cowon?  I own a lot of high resolution files and while not many need tweaking, there are some where I'd like to dial back some of the EQ settings.  I doubt I'm the only one.  Thanks!!  So far I'm still getting used to the X5 but it seems like a great product.

Can someone confirm that the X5 can't read the Track No. tag?  This apparently in addition to the fact it can't read the Disc No. (Part Of A Set) tag.

If you browse by folder, it's the file name. If you go by category, it's the tag info.

One of my senior technicians at work (17 years in the field) seems to strongly agree with you. As an example he mentioned his Lumia 1520 phone as well as Surface Pro 2 tablet will crash if the microSD card is formatted on a PC as opposed to on the device itself. Excited about this possible fix!

I actually went back to 1.23beta for the bass. sigh.

I've actually found that browsing by file or category doesn't allow you to see the songs with the tag info for the song title, track number, or disc number.  It just shows the files by file name.

There was (is) a change to the volume control depending on what firmware you are using.... one firmware the volume control goes to 120 and on another firmware the volume control only goes to 60

 

not sure which one fiio will end up with when its all sorted out in the end...  I like the 120 better...    

 

This is an edit....  sorry I got the X3 firmware mixed with the X5....

On the contrary, I would prefer only 60 steps. 120 steps is a lot of button-pushing one way or the other to fit the needs for each album.

I think that the firmware is immature. A lot of options are still missing in order to achieve the functionality of a hi-fi player such as Neutron. Some missing settings are way too important to be absent from the player, and the UI could use some polishing as well.
