I am using the 64Gb Sandisk Cards that people have recommended on here.....so yeah possibly defective memory.

Neither did I the first time round I owned a DX50, my original cards worked perfectly without any problems.

Is it possible to make a selection on the DX50 where you can make it play one album after another(different artists) or do you have to compose a playlist?

what are peoples experiences with ordering direct from Ibasso?

All I have had is Paypal payment notification after a few days waiting. No reply to emails either. Used to better than this with online purchasing. Now starting to doubt my decision to purchase DX-50. (especially since perhaps I could have waited for new stock of DX-90.....but only 8 hours battery life!)

Thanks

Im complete Baffled by my issue with the 64Gb Sandisk Class 10 Micro SD Cards Im trying to use.

 

I just cant get them to play ball.

 

Im trying to copy across a selection of 16/44.1 ALAC files and 24/96 FLAC files. When I do this some of the files appear on the Card and others dont. When I put the card in my DX50 some of the files that showed when the SD card was in the PC arent showingon the DX50 (others are) when I put the card back in the PC card reader the files that arent shwing on the DX50 have disapeared from the card. I may get an artist details andpossibly album but no Track details. it then wont allow me to delete these files of the card!!

 

Ive used similar cards in the past with no problem in a different DX50.

 

A couple of people have said use a card reader, but in my mind that wont make a difference...its the same thing as an onboard card reader.

 

Can anybody shed any light or possible solutions???

Well, i don't know where else you can get it other than ibasso or mp4nation, and believe me when it comes to these two, ibasso is much faster.

 

i just ordered some cables from ibasso on 26th, received them on 28th in hongkong.

 

i think it is variable.

Well, i think you should get back to where you bought them or to sandisk,

 

you can also check this video about genuine vs counterfeit, i don't know if this video is reliable too but may be !

I have returned both the cards to the retailer....i have no doubt they are original cards as the dealer is highly reputable. I just don't understand why some files copy and show and others don't.

I now have a DX50 I can't use until I get alternative cards. May just sell it and stick with the Apple products....a lot more bloody reliable!!

I had problems with one of these cards some months ago - there were some duff ones about. I returned it and the replacement worked fine. If you have a windows PC try h2testw.exe, a free programme. It will take time on a card of this size but will tell you if the card has any problems. I have a few sandisk 64gb cards in various devices and all work well, so persevere and I'm sure you will enjoy eventually.

My issue is that I was having problems with two cards of exactly the same make....just doesnt sem right that both cards have got an issue.

 

Ive also received an alternative card in the post today and that is also giving me exactly the same problems........

 

Some files transfer across fine others will appear on the card with the artist and album details but no track details.....when I copy the album across again it tells me the file already exists do I want to replace it...Click Yes. The artist / album / track details copy across I go into the details to check come out again and everything has dissapeared!! I just do not know what the issue is. I cant have three cards that all have problems. 

 

Thats the problem with all of these new DAPS there is ****** all memory on them and you end up p*****g about trying to copy across files.....Ive now spent nearly 24 hours trying to get 30Gb of music to transfer and thats only half of what I want!!!!

Then you must be doing something wrong here. I never had any issues copying ALAC files from my Mac to any SD Cards I have from different brands. samsung, sandisk, transcend.

 

Are you just dragging your music files from the iTunes GUI or from the Finder to your SD Card?

Sounds to me like you have an issue with your computer.  All of us use cards (I use SanDisk 64's) with no issues.  If you've tried several cards with the same issues, and the issues include things exclusive of the DX50, then I would look for a computer/cable issue.  The fact that you don't seem to want to use a reader also complicates things, as a reader allow you to see where in your chain issues are cropping up.  

 

I would suggest buying a reader for less than $10 and also trying a different cable.  Reboot your computer first.  See if files load onto a card using your computer cleanly.  If they show up perfectly on the card after loading them and then unmounting/remounting the card, you will know the card is fine.

 

Try rebooting your DX50.  Make sure it is empty (sounds like you've been fussing with it, so clear everything out of its internal storage).  You could even reinstall its firmware.  Then try a card.  And keep in mind you might be having problems with your files because something is going on with them, a corruption, bad tags, whatever.  

 

I use many Apple products and find that the iBasso is no better/worse in terms of ease of use.  It has less ease-of-use consumer features than an iPod, but the quality is certainly far superior and I've found that the DX50 UI is certainly easy to use.

 

People here are giving you good advice.  Try some of it.  It may help.

I'm doing the latter for my ALAC Files, copying them from my music library on my PC (this is the same for my HiRes FLAC files.

I don't see what difference a card reader will make....it does exactly the same job as the on board card reader on my PC. If anything you are adding another issue to the chain because of the USB cable. If you can explain differently then that would probably help me understand.

I have cleared the DX50 of any residual files and also reinstalled the latest firmware and it has made no difference. I don't think the problem is the DX50 it's the way the files are being copied. None of my files are corrupted they work fine on my iPad and iPhone and these files have been used on Sandisk SD cards in the past on a DX50 (both DAP and cards were sold 6 months ago)......wish I hadn't now.

I agree with you as well with regard to the DX50....my issue is with the faffing around you have to do loading music onto the cards. With apple you can download 128GB of music in about an hour......with SD cards it takes anything from 10 hours to days (in my case with the problems, days lol)

I'm going to take my external hard drive (which has my music backed up on) home and try the SD card on a different computer.....see if this makes a difference / helps.

If this fails then I have decided the DX50 will be sold, the card returned for a refund and I will just use my iPod Classic with my incoming Duet amp and add an Algorythym Solo......not as portable but a Dam site more stable and reliable.

How are you copying music from Itunes to the SD card?
