Firmware upgrade nightmare

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

This may have been addressed elsewhere in the forum, but I just got a FiiO X3 today. I am trying to do the firmware upgrade to be able to use my X3 as a DAC. First, I'm running Windows7 and I don't have the option of formatting the card as FAT32, only EXFAT or NTFS. I tried formatting the card as EXFAT but my FiiO does not recognize it. I then formatted the card as NTFS and my player recognizes it but I'm still unable to do the firmware upgrade. Has anyone else run into this problem and if so, how did they resolve it?

 

Thanks,

 

James

The instruction is very straight forward use fat32 card I think 64gb cards won't work

I don't have an X3, but on the X5 there is a menu option to format the card using the player. That may be able to easily handle the FAT32 formatting.

I think that option was introduced with latest firmware,

A camera with adapter might do the trick

Take a look at this post: http://www.head-fi.org/t/661411/fiio-x5-thread-info-updated-on-jan-17th-2014/6585#post_10443466

 

Instructions for pulling off FAT32 using the command line in Windows. Just be careful with drive letters to prevent a disaster!
