Just to clear up the shuffle bug (sounds like it could be a dance from the 50's) It does exist, but there is a fairly simple workaround.

 

As far as I can tell, when a scan of the database is done it produces a pre-shuffled list. Therefore every time you leave the device on shuffle you will hear the same selection of tracks. It doesn't always start from the same point on the list, but if you listen for a short while it always seems to get back there.

 

The simple solution is to rescan your device, which produces a new list. Not particularly elegant I know, but a solution none the less.

 

If I'm completely the honest, there are no deal breaking issues with this device for me. A couple of things that could do with ironing out for sure, but nothing serious.

Maybe related to total files?  I have ~2800 and my shuffle list has them all as viewable by the front display.  Maybe if you pass a file limit or folder depth it crops up?  Would add I have scan on auto, meaning it scanned a long time ago and not since, and I never turn off the AK.

Hmmm, when you say 'shuffle list' where are you finding this?

 

To shuffle I select the 'songs' menu, then select 'all songs' then play a track ensuring shuffle mode is on, via the track playing options menu.

 

As I understand it, the only difference between having scan on auto or manual, is that the device will scan the moment it detects any changes to the content of the SD cards.

 

I have a touch over 3000 tracks on mine, so not hugely different to you

I press Songs, All Songs and then press a song in the list.  Boom random list of ~2800.

Ah I see. I thought you were saying you had the ability to see the shuffled list of songs.

When I press playlist on the now playing page, the list is all my songs.  I have an AK100 Mk2 running 2.30.  Users on that thread also have this random issue but I never have.  The total number of tracks in the list also show in the middle of the seek bar.  I also just created a short list, 81 songs, and manually changed track up the random list... didn`t hit the first played song 3/81 again.  When I reached the 82nd switch... an error saying no file found.

Hi Guys...i have a problem auto scanning 64gb sdcard using my Titan..it can not auto scan completely. Anybody experience the same? I use 64GB sandisk ultra. Firmware is 1.37. It is fine if i use 32gb. But when i use 64gb..the device started to act abnormal. When auto scan up to a certain number of song, it goes back to home screen and re-scanning reapeating the same step again and again. Is my device faulty? Thanks.

 

Btw..if i use manual scan..is fine..the device still can read all the file..but auto scan is failed (with 64GB).

There's probably a file in there that it doesn't like. Good luck finding it...

I couldn't get mine to scan manually after adding my entire itunes library. I erased that, copied only the stuff I wanted, and it worked fine...

Hi Sam.. thanks for the reply. Seems like you are right. So yesterday..i exFAT formated again my sdcard. And loaded with different files. This time i loaded only flac 24bit onto my titan up to 54gb. And the auto scanning is working fine. Yesterday i loaded mixed files (wave/dsd/flac) and i suspected some of the files could be the cause of this problem. I will try again later today, select only the songs that i want it..and see if it is work or not.

Thanks.
