Thanks, a fresh download worked first time. Either the A&K version is buggy or corrupted, but anyway I can transfer properly now. The only other software fault is nothing to do with A&K but the Android system. It counts files 1,10,11,..2,20,21 etc and as a result you have to renumber files if the order is important (which it is with Classical). OSX and even Windows got rid of that long ago. Still the music makes it all worthwhile.
I would be grateful if you could help me. I have an AK240 and still wonder at the quality of music. However, connection with a MAC is not good and after losing a folder with over 80gb of files (luckily I had made a backup) also got fed up with ATP and following your posts downloaded SyncMate Expert. The trouble is that I cannot make it sync! I am asked for "USB Debugging" and follow the instructions but we obviously have modified software and cannot do what they suggest.
How did you get it to sync? I deleted ATP and then restarted my Mac but it make no difference.
Thanks for your help,
SyncMate can mount a MTP folder on the desktop, so you can copy files directly to it. Do not copy many gigabytes of files at one time, either with Android File Transfer or any other method. It is very annoying that a regular USB transfer cannot be done with the AK240.
Of the phones in my possession, my top 3 order of preference - 1) LCD X, 2) LCD XC, 3) Bayer T5P
For iems, both K3003 and Tralucent 1+2 pairs really well, each with it unique flavours that I love. I don't have the ref 1 yet and the demo pair I listened to is almost fresh out of the box so accurate assessment is difficult. But from what I heard, I do feel it should be an excellent pairing with the RWAK when burnt in.
There are so many good phones and iems in the market that may pair well with the 240 so can't really say what's best. Just what I like most within my inventory. Happy shopping
A new question to AK240 owners: how do you transfer your files to AK240? can you just drag and drop files?? and does 'folder browsing' function works like Rockbox? does it show you folders in alphabetical order?
The recommended way is using Android Transfer-there's a dedicated one for Mac users and one for Windows. I've had SyncMate recommended here as an alternative transfer program. You do drag and drop. Can't say about Rockbox(never used) but there is folder browsing along with browsing by Artists, Albums, Genres, etc. Folders are automatically in alphabetical order. I use them somewhat like playlists, which you can create separately.
This has been explained plenty on the threads.......please read.
Cool, I was wondering if AK240 shows up on my computer like a HDD. I used to have older iRiver products and all of them were not recognized as a flash drive or HDD. I had to sync files with iRiver song manager and it was pain in the ass. Its transfer speed was low and the software was buggy.
Try to source from Hong Kong and should be easier.
