Absolutely nothing worst than be the constant target of problem equipment, I had my fair share of those, in my case though I tend to throw myself in front of the gadget gun thinking that I'll be able to dodge the problem bullet. biggrin.gif

I have the first batch DX50 too with the two batteries which I find very useful as I charge one over night while I am sleeping with the DX50 on. When I wake up in the morning, no juice in the DX50. I switch the battery and all set to go to work with a full charge. smily_headphones1.gif

Same here, placed an order with them on October 22nd and status still shown as processing. Left many messages on live chat without any reply from them. I'll probably open a PayPal dispute soon.

I may be wrong, but I think the key to a good working DX50 is a "Golden Library". I'll bet most problems are a result of the music files and how they are tagged and managed. I have a batch 6 now on 1.2.3 using the out-of-box Sandisk 64GM exFAT with zero issues. My files were created by iTunes and they are on my card exactly as they are in my computer.

Scan is good, although I do get a brief scan each time I power up. I didn't do the remove and insert card twice, but once after updating to 1.2.3. Not issues with either firmware version.

I think those who are having scanning issues or issues playing or reading files should share what software they use to manage music. That might be helpful to others.

Those of you buying from MP4Nation, I found that they shipped exactly as they published on their website. Right now they say: "- If your order was placed ON or AFTER 25th October your order will ship on or after November 10th."

It was hard to be patient but, believe us, it's worth the wait.

Hi, 

 

I noticed that there wasn't really much in the way of a case for the DX50 (unless you count very expensive leather ones). SO I had a look around and found this Lowepro case: Lowepro Dublin 20.  I've taken a couple of photo's to give you a better idea of the fit. I know it's not practical for use on the move given the lack of access to buttons etc. but it does give a relatively low profile fit and will stop the unit getting scratched.

Link - there are three photo's, hopefully that's enough

 

(sorry, I don't have permission to post the photo here)

 

Anyway, just thought I'd share.

At first, they said that next week they will have to order delivery, orientated by the end of October. Later, they said that at the beginning of this week will have it available, but I have Wednesday and any moves in order not seen. I just hope that by the end of next week I will be glad back home player.

I've already asked mp4nation about canceling the order. Just contact them if you want to cancel before they send you your package and they will open up a support ticket to do so.

Some of my album folder have .txt files should I ditch those too?

This information should settle the natives down for, perhaps,  a couple of hours.

 

Any bets as to when the "Where is my MP4Nation order?" posts will start again?

this year for sure tongue.gif

gladly my RWAK and C3 are entertaining me well enough to keep patience ... mp4nation must throw in some more epsensive IEMs for us as a present and compensation for patience biggrin.gif
but at least they could purchase for us and throw in a silicon case for dx50, i even could wait another week if they do wink.gif

Pretty obvious that mp4nation demand is more than what they're getting from ibasso. Probably got blindsided by the surge. For me I can wait, as I continue to use my current daps until the dx50 shows up.

Confirmed DX50 always do "Media Scanning"  on 1.2.3b for a 3-5 seconds when you turn the device on.

I thought so, pretty wasteful. Wish it'd be smart enough to figure out nothing's changed but I guess there is no way to know a card got swapped while off. Still though requiring a mandatory scan is silly.

I have a 64GB MicroSDXC and it only scanned for the first time.

 

Every boot from the DX50 takes me directly to the "Now Playing" screen...
