Does it happen on the original FW? It would be interesting to go back to the original FW and see if it happens there.
I just setup VMWare Fusion so I can run my old WinXP vm and use the RKBatchtool instead to write FW to DX90. Just like I suspected, using the tool is a much cleaner way to install firmwares on DX90 (same goes with DX50 I believe). The nagging issue of 2 second cut I always get when listening on gapless albums is somewhat gone. Tried to play the same album several times and it's much smoother and transition is much better.
I even tried on v2.0.0 and I don't get the cut as well.
Wolfen68, the way I add songs to my micro SD cards is by inserting the micro SD card in an SD card adapter and then inserting the SD card adapter in a multi card reader, either a standalone one, or the reader on my laptop. My Microsoft Surface also has a micro SD card port, so I could use that if I wished. I then copy songs to the card while it is "offline" from the DX90. That way I can quickly add as many songs as I wish, without having the DX90 do a scan of the card each time a song is added. When I reinsert the card in the DX90, a new scan is automatically initiated.
Adding songs this way is in my experience much, much faster than trying to add then with the SD card already in the DX90.
depaor...I think you indirectly nailed what my problem has been. As I have already reported, I have been having all kinds of scan problems with the DX90. I believe what is happening while I have the DX90 connected is that while I am trying to transfer files it is trying to re-scan the directory. Since this is very slow on mine and usually hangs up, it is concurrently causing the usb connection to lock up. I will also remove the card to add any files until the scanning is fixed.
Thanks for the idea...
This is new since FW 2.05. FW 2.00 was cutting the ends off of songs which is improved in 2.05.
