If I go to "Play All" it's instantaneous. Does "Browse Files" make update the database again or something?

 

When the song is playing, I see the file name, as well as the song title, album, artist, album art (if any), etc, but when looking through the "Browse Files" mode, I only see the file names...

 

 

It takes forever even though I haven't put any new songs on it.

I believe when the database is updated, that's only for when you browse by Categories (Albums/Artists/etc.). But when you go via the file browser, it's directly from the card, so it takes some time to load (especially if you have a bunch of files in one directory). At least that's how my Hifiman player works.

 

And when you browse for files on the X1, it still shows the file names.

Card.  Or your tags are wonky.  Or you have over-large album art files.

Thanks. I guess I'll mess around with the X3 before trying an X1.

 

Quick question - in the firmware, if you want to access all your music in one spot (without sorting by album or artist), do you just go to "Play All" or "Browse Files"?

Thanks! I think you're right. It must be trying to read from the card every time I go to "Browse Files".

Ok. Thanks @clee290 and @olddude. Will use the X1 to format the card. Will I be able to use a card reader to transfer the files from my pc onto the card after formatting with the X1. Thanks again.

Yes

The reader will be quite a bit faster than doing it via the X1 attached to a computer via a USB cable.

Well, I feel pretty dumb. Hitting the Update button, and then going to Play All works perfectly. Not sure why I've been using the Browse Files slow method this whole time.

 

Thanks for the help everyone!
