The Astell & Kern AK120 - Page 267

post #3991 of 6309
I just leave my as cards in the 120 and transfer directly, sure, it takes a little longer that way but when you factor in the time it takes to take the case off, take the cards out, full them then put them back in and slide the case back on you have not saved that much time! Also there is less wear and year on the card slot springs

The wear and tear element is my consideration too. So probably will just continue to drag/drop as you suggest. Thanks.

CDs ripped. Have dragged and dropped, but then the unit doesn't always see both SD cards? On one of them, when it does see the card, doesn't see the content?? Any suggestions? Do I need a file structure with Music>... Or just the albums? Tried to see if this helped??

Any help very much appreciated. smily_headphones1.gif

I just created a long post in 'AK120 for Mac Users' that some of you might find useful.

I think either the sd slots or sd cards are very temperamental!!

I had 2 64g working fine. Didn't use player for few days while traveling. Then would only see 1 card. Swapped around and saw just the other slot!! Tried the sd in adaptor on PC and can't find it now!! Dead sandisk class 10 64g!! Not sure what caused it or just one of those things.

Hey Oak,

Did you do a library scan? Can you see the content when you browse by folder? Do you see the card in question when you attach to your computer by USB? Some users have had issues with certain brands of cards and with normal insertion errors. If the card is truly not showing up in folder view, shut the player down, reinsert, and boot. Is the card xFAT?

i find sometimes that one or the other SD card does not show up. The easiest solution is to switch off the 120 then re start and everything appears once more.

I found the sd card not recognized issue happen a lot after I tried to transfer files on the sd cards via the ak120. I never had this problem again after I switched to using an SanDisk usb3 card reader to transfer music and properly eject the card before removing them from the card reader. This gives me much faster transfer speed and stability.

It seems like a rather sporadic problem cos i certainly have never encountered such issues ... regardless if i transferred via the ak120 or with a external card reader .... o well at least it still works for you :)

Are you guys ejecting the player and media before disconnecting in removable disk mode? If not I can bet you might have hosed the disk.
post #4001 of 6309

ehh i just eject the player (results in sd card ejecting too) after which i would disconnect the player.

Happened to me frequently too after I transferred files via the AK120.

Normally I just transfer 3-4 albums at one go so I don't really bother to remove the player from the case, eject the cards, etc....

Easier to power the unit and plug the USB cable.

 

Only if I'm transferring a lot of albums, I'll use external card reader coz the data transfer is much faster.

I eject the SD cards then the player. It does not happen often, probably five times since I have had the player. I have also formatted the cards before use and I do a library scan after I have added new files.

I'm having a somewhat related issue:  When I'm playing songs on shuffle from "All Songs," my AK120 will occasionally start to play a song but freeze up.  After trying to load the song for maybe 10-15 seconds, it will say "file does not exist" or something similar.  One or both of the SD cards will then disappear from the display, and I have to reboot the player.

 

Anyone else experience something like this?  It's a minor but annoying issue.  It seems to be especially likely to happen if I'm skipping ahead to the next track somewhat rapidly.  I haven't connected my AK120 to my computer in a while, so it's not a matter of me forgetting to properly eject the AK120.  I'm using Sandisk 64GB cards and 1.33 firmware.

Yes, I have had exactly the same thing happen to me! It is really rare but happens exactly as you say.

I am using two class 10 Scan disk cards which are recommended by A&K so its not a card compatibility issue!
