While I sure as hell don't want to bore everyone to death... I'm going to post AGAIN about my OTG experiences.
This morning I tested the run time of my DX50 attached to a 1TB HD via a specialty cable (supposed I guess to charge (or maintain charge in the DX), AND power the HD to give OTG listening)).
I managed 1 hour 10 minutes playtime before the DX50 shut itself down due to a completely drained battery. So completely impracticable and unusable. Which is a little disappointing.
Additionally, adding the OTG drive and trying to scan the library was problematic, then REMOVING the OTG drive was really screwing with my library... when I tried to play music after removing the OTG it was trying to play tracks from the drive I had removed, even after re-scanning the internal memory card. It was leaving the legacy library on the menu, allowing the DX to select tracks that were no longer present.
A factory reset was require after undocking the OTG EACH TIME.
So, while playing tunes from an external HD is POSSIBLE, it is utterly problematic and impractical.
Unless I'm doing something stupid, which is really quite likely.
I think you're doing the right thing by sharing your findings in an unexplored subject.
Keep it up!
I think it all fits inside the DX50 silicone case (as shown in a previous post), apart from the lumpy back look.
Up to you to be creative in making it neat. I used an amp so it's sandwiched in between DX50 and the amp.
Nice solution. I considered this mod as soon as I first heard of it. Seems like a good way to prevent damage to the thin ribbon cable.
Ah, ok... I'd be curious to see one of those myself even though I have to admit this little Meenova reader works like a champ!
And with pictures:
Sorry about the dust...the camera flash highlights it...
I think the current SDXC class 10 spec supports up to 2 TB capacity. But at the moment we only have 64GB for mSD and 128GB for SD (256 exists I know but price is still on out of reach territory).
Soon a 128GB mSD will be available, but I expect it will be expensive. Perhaps next year they will be affordable.
