    Start with a blank SD and add the file to that.

    I'm still waiting for it to arrive. It will probably get stuck in Chinese New Year celebrations. :frowning2: I'll be begging for more help in the Spring.

    Hey, guys. Just wanna ask some help here. I tried to update the firmware of my S5 (w/ bluetooth) with the agptek m20 (1.18) fw and now, after updating it, my unit is stuck on the AGPTEK startup screen. I already tried resetting it but it still stucks on the start screen.

    Any help will do. Hoping for your kind responses. Thanks!

    Try flashing again

    Problem is the laptop can't recognize the s5 anymore after what happened.

    I think, like me, you now have a dead Benjie S5B (with bluetooth). I have not been able to find firmware anywhere for the bluetooth version, and both the AGPTEK M20 and Benjie S5 firmware hang on the welcome screen. If you hold the power and volume down buttons togther and connect the player to your PC it should recognise it.
    If you work out how to get it working again please post up here or let me know ... I've given up and bought a Shanling M2S - but it would be good to get the Benjie working again.

    You only really need that to function if you want to use the internal storage. I only use external storage. You're not trying to upgrade the firmware from internal storage are you?

    The S5 that i have set up for a friend seems to go for a reboot when I change the sound profile.

    I have bought two Benjie S5B's to use almost exclusively with Bluetooth. I loaded 16GB micro sd cards with ogg files only to discover that the S5B does not support ogg over Bluetooth. I don't understand why. Will a change of firmware turn ogg through Bluetooth back on?
    The S5 is a great sounding Dap, my other option is to buy 128gb sd cards and load them with flac files. Does the S5 support 128gb cards?

    Works for me… I format my larger SD cards in FAT32 for these cheap players. Since I'm only putting audio files on the card the size limitations aren't limiting. Besides I use DriveSort on these habitually for the same reason. The better players don't have any issues. Makes changing to an inexpensive I don't care if I lose or break it while I'm out player instead of a nicer listening at home player easier.

    The K9 supports 200gb cards (at least in my experience). I Would expect the S5 uses exactly the same hardware and firmware for reading TF as it would make little sense to develop 3 or 4 different mechanisms to perform the same task.

    The S5 tops the K9 despite the same chipset of the two devices. Build quality is better too.

    I thought that they sound the same
