DX50 Bug List, Wish List Fix - Page 39

My DX50 scans my card reasonably quick. Finally managed to find and load up my UHS1 64gb microSDHC. Only have about 6gb of songs in there but scanning was less than a minute for sure. Each albums is stored in its own folder at the most basic level. Another folder (e.g. English, Chinese, Japanese) stores loose tracks that do not have an album folder. Scans fine and the files show up in order, but I made it a point to use mp3tag to go through each file and then use CopyInOrder to copy the files to my card. My card is formatted exFAT with 128kb allocation size. Card was quick formatted before files are copied to it.

Looks most likely the filenames was the problem. First up, I removed the folder named Music and just put all the Album Artists in root, followed by Album then files. So I am still using three folder levels.

But I also used MP3Tag to trim all the filenames to track# and the first 30 characters of the titles from the tags. Inserted the MicroSD (I don't have any tracks on the internal memory) and it seems to have scanned completely and all albums now appear. I just picked 30 as an arbitrary number thinking that would be adequate to identify most tracks. Fortunately the title tags can be left in tact. Handy since classical titles can be very long as other have pointed out.

I think I'll leave my archive of music files using the complete filenames and simply trim any additional tracks on the fly directly on the SD cards I use.

That just about clears up my issues with the DX50 except playlists.

We all seem to have a common theme here, I removed my root level folder and started with artist folders right away in the root directory, kept short names on purpose, cleaned up tags and my dap got very stable from that point on, there are still other sticky points but at least I can safely play music without weird issues.

Has anyone found a workaround to the playing sequence of 24bit FLAC files?  My MP3 files seem to all play in order but most of my HD albums do not.  If I remember right the DX100 had the same problem and required you to copy them in order to get them to play in correct order, does that work with the DX50?

 

Apologize if this was addressed already but if so please point me to the correct post#.

+1.

 

I also listen mostly to classical with many long file names. I had Mp3Tag strip all tags, and shortened long file names.

 

No problems since.

It seems that no matter where I get my classical music from - HDTracks, Classicalshop.net, eClassical, etc., I often find that the tagging is less than desirable and I have to go in and clean it up.  Makes for alot of work sometimes - even with Mp3tag.

Totally feel your pain, to make it easier in the future work on your files as soon as you buy them, this way it will be gradual instead of a long exhausting session. Similar to cleaning up your paperwork, works a lot better when done immediately instead of gathering piles. smily_headphones1.gif

That's actually what I've started doing.  After downloading to my PC, I immediately clean up the tags/filenames/etc. to my liking before moving them to an external hard drive.  Really does save time in the long run.  But I still have huge piles of paperwork laying around that I need to take care off.  Seems like digital is easier to organize than real life!

My DX50 refuses to store music on the internal storage. I thought at first it needed SOME space for album art (which somehow managed to become about 350MB for 32 gig's worth of flac albums) when it deleted 2.5-3 gigs on internal memory when I filled it. then I started to put about 3 GiGs of music on internal storage so that it would have it's own 3 gigs and hoped that it wouldn't delete these too. well, no luck - it deleted almost every track in all of the albums on the internal storage, leaving me with about 230 MB from those 3Gigs of files. the situation is worsened by the fact that it still remembers the files that are no more on the memory and if I try to play one, the device freezes and goes to endless loop of restarts unless I connect it to a computer and delete everything on the internal storage (including those 2 folders it creates in the root directory).

 

kinda sucks. imagine my frustration if it had more internal storage (say, 32 gigs :D)  and exhibited this problem.

Lol, there are days I feel like gathering all of those piles, light a match and invite the neighbors for a bond fire wink.gif

You could always scan them all onto your PC and archive it away that way :).

That was my plan but you can see how far that got!

My DX50 refuses to play files downloaded from HD Tape Transfers (96 and 192KHz) through to the end, cutting off about 2/3 of the way through. Other HD files are fine. The files in question play perfectly on the PC.

Any ideas?

Maybe try copying the files to the internal storage or sd card again?

Tried that - no joy...
