FiiO X5 firmware 2.50 download and discussion - Page 6

No big deal but I don`t like to be dictated. Also player`s implementation of USB is very slow and I prefer work with cards in good USB adapter. And so before copying the files to a new card I have to insert it to player to format then insert to adapter to copy and then back to player - instead of copying in adapter (as card is factory formatted to exFAT) and inserting to player.

Almost every piece of gear I've purchased (never had a smart phone that uses external cards though) has recommended to format the card it uses with the device, including camera gear and the like. This is nothing out of the ordinary and certainly not a bug. I'd call it a feature as it has alleviated many format issues in the past. The majority of playback issues I've read since they've first released the X3 a couple years ago were form card format issues before they offered the built in format tool. There are many ways to format a card that make it unstable for the player. Count your blessings it's available.

I understand it's not optimal to remove the card but once it's loaded with the majority of music the first time it really doesn't take that long to add an album or two once in a while. I get it, it's inconvenient, but no where near a bug.

hi X5 users,

 

im considering the X5 myself but concerned by the scroll wheel issues i've read about.

was wondering if still in FW2.5/2.4 any of u experience any of those issues.

 

thanks :)

What scroll wheel concerns are you worried about? It's wonky but not the end of the world.

I just bought x5 2 weeks ago and I don't see any scroll wheel issue.

Some people do not like the fact that scroll wheel overshots, or that it is not tight by definition. 

 

I fiind it pretty nice!

And latest fw revision, v2.50 seems to improve the snappiness.

I guess there is no issue for me although UI is a little bit laggy.

Upgrading to 2.5 resulted in 2 changes for me.

First, scrolling forward used to leave the song playing during the time scrolling...now the music is muted until the scroll is complete.

Secondly, I lost all my favourites. Now going to favourites gives me a message: No music found. In all fairness this might be due to my replacing the sd cards in reverse order after the upgrade??

Any comments or solution to the lost favs would be appreciated.

I rather think that my favourites have been wiped every time I've updated the firmware.  It's no big deal to replace them, unless you've got hundreds of course.

Scanning forward would mute the music in FW 2.4 as well.

Every time FW is updated to a new version the favorites list is cleared. You might be better off using playlists as outlined on the first page of this thread.

Thanks for the response. Playlists sound like the best solution, although not as easy to set up as the favorites was. I'll have to do some reading on the subject (too busy listening to the super sound quality to keep up with all the new features)

Does anyone know how the x5 keeps track of favorites??  I was just wondering if there might be some way of "dumping" favorites into a playlist?

Unfortunately the favorites is locked to a database in the unit that is not externally accessible. Not the best implementation if expecting playlist like functionality. It's more of a remnant feature from before they enabled playlists, so it's pretty much not preferable anymore.

For creating playlists it's very simple, even from iTunes. Literally export your playlist and follow the simple instructions on the first page of this thread.

Sounds exactly the same to me.

None whatsoever.
