Still waiting for UPS____then after watching Jude on uTube,
do the firmware update____question?
I have dL'd the newest firmware___do I place the entire folder___X3__FW2.1 inside the external card?
Had some trouble understanding his speech. Yes, he was using a Mac laptop,
but could not see just were to place it and if the entire folder.
Feeling as bit dense.
Not the whole folder just the x3.fw file. Drop it straight onto the card icon.
Remove it *afterwards* because it has been copied into the X3's internal memory (EEPROM?) by that stage and isn't required on the card any more. I suspect that is to prevent you accidentally re-launching the upgrade process unnecessarily.
No problem. It's a pleasure to help someone who *has* searched the threads and tried to help themselves first - it makes the explanations so much easier 8^).
Hopefully you'll enjoy it as much as I do. It has it's quirks, no doubt, but they're all forgotten once the headphones are on, and the volume is turned up 8^).
It is charged_____firmware installed___BUT
every time I power ON, it shows the different languages__before I can pick one,
it says" Good Bye" and powers OFF___
When trying to set buttons it shows a lock at top of screen, LOCKED?
And in the middle of the screen a triangle with a ! ' in the middle?
Found another vid on uTube easier to learn, but this one will NOT give me a chance!
Now after preparing___clueless__help Please!
Ha! Everyone does this. Slide the lock switch on the side to the unlocked position.
It usually asks you when you upgrade the firmware but I guessed it got confused by the lock being set. Go to the home screen, pick the last option (System Settings) then the language setting is the first option. If you can't find it, it may be easier to re-upgrade the firmware as I'm pretty sure it will ask you to set the language again - but I'm not absolutely sure.
2. This morning removed the 1st play list and placed another on Ext. card ___freeing up over 4.5 GB in
the internal memory, after updating the library___the Internal still shows space being nearly full.
Read instructions about going to "Tools->Folders Options-->View-->Advanced Settings____
be darned if I can find above mentioned ___Tools-etc.!
To delete the unused space and the UNCHECK to un-hide ???
You're supposed to do this on your PC, not on the X3. How did you delete the files? If you did it on your Mac you'll have to re-connect the X3 and then "Empty the Trash". I use an app called "Eject for Windows" on my Mac which clears out all the extraneous stuff that the Mac creates.
I can't help you with the MP3 stuff - I use true VBR AAC files created using XLD or FLACs. I have a few Amazon MP3s but they all play fine.
I'm currently running firmware 1.31 and I'm having problems upgrading to the new firmware 2.1. I keep on getting this message when I simultaneously press the power and menu buttons. The message reads... "update file not found". My TF Card is formatted to FAT32. I've also tried other cards formatted to FAT32... same problem. Has anyone come across this same problem?. If so, what did you do to remedy this, so it would upgrade to the new firmware? Thanks.
