The Astell & Kern AK120 for Mac users - Page 3

post #31 of 54

Hello Everyone!

 

I apologize if this has been answered already. I downloaded firmware for the AK120 (1.37) and file unzipped thus was left with a .hex file. I copied file to the root of device ( I think) and nothing happened ( I just dropped in there and din't double click on anything). The root from my perspective is where I see other folders such as Iriver, Music, Playlists, and System. Is this considered the root or I'm at the wrong location? Any information would be really appreciated.

 

Thank much!

That is the correct folder. Just dropped the hex file there & unplug (eject first), after that it's automatic.

Is the file name correct? Ak120.hex?

Hi! Yes the file is AK120.hex

 

Let me give it a try! 

 

Thanks much for your quick response!

I have Seen a Recent post on this in the ak100 thread (on page 513). It should work for the 120 as well, i guess.

Kid3 on the mac does this beautifully.

I get album art (mostly reliably) using FLAC and ALAC

Hi Nashton,

 

I'm trying to use Kid3 to tag files on my AK120 but it's not working for me (tracks still show alphabetically). I've read the Kid3 Handbook but still can't work out what to do.

 

What am I doing wrong!?

I used YATE on my Mac. It works great for editing and artwork and its free. My problem is that if the FLAC does not have any information it does not get info from the web. You have to manually add it. Other than that... no issues...

Try naming the files 

 

"01 track1"

"02 track2"   etc. 

 

This way the order of the CD will be maintained 

 

You can do this for example with XLR or MusicBrainz Picard and surely also with Kid3 (I guess)
