    I'm not sure of the naming of these different USB types, so I hope I'm not going to confuse matters.

    My i5 didn't include the type of adapter I bought from Amazon. The adapter included was a micro usb type C to micro usb type A. It was a small adapter plug. My 128gb memory stick is 'full size' and doesn't fit any micro USB socket. If you look at the adapter on amazon you'll see what I mean.

    The adapter included with the i5 allowed me only to charge the i5 using a micro USB type A cable connected to a charging plug or my PC USB socket. It didn't work connected to my PC for transferring files, for that I had to use the included type C cable.

    Does that help at all?

    I understand what you mean. What I was trying to do was use the supplied adapter to connect a micro USB male connection (either on a cable or on a Sandisk dual micro USB/USB A thumb drive). As you say maybe this isn't possible for transferring files or playing music. I will find out on tuesday when my USB C card reader arrives.

    Thanks again

    The adapter that come with the i5 is not OTG. If u want the i5 to play music file from thumb drive, then U have go buy a USB type c to USB A/mini A and make sure it written 'for power & data/syncing'. I have 1 from Belkin and it works 100%.

    I switched mine to the English version, You can find a guide in this thread somewhere that you can change it.

    Re OTG. My USB Ccard reader arrived, Tried it with several micro SD cards (Sandiisk) formatted either exfat or fat32. Not recognised.

    When I Plug in I get the messages - "USB Connected" followed immediately by "USB Safe to remove"

    These are the same messages that appear if the reader is plugged in with no micro SD in it.

    BUT The i5 does recognise 2x64GB Sandisk SDHC cards both formatted fat32. (Message "Preparing SD Card" and all is well).

    So either the i5 recognises SDHC card but not micro SD cards (??) or my new card reader is faulty. (I have no way of checking this). I have quite a few micro SD cards, so this is annoying (and weird!). Looks like I'll have to invest in a couple of dual micro USB C/USB A thumb drives.....

    That's really sad. I'm very happy with mine, but I cannot believe they won't release a new firmware with proper album sorting and a working gapless mode. It cannot be hard at all and they would make all Cayin i5 users the happiest dap users ever...

    Abargil was another bug in the stock player , some albums that are the whole file and cue file after the end of the album are reproduced a second time , then there is no transition to another folder . And this error is found even other users from our Russian forum . A prepositional Andykong , if your firm doesn't want to update the firmware , then put at least the player who was in the 2.0 firmware!!!! Or ttlite firmware 2.0 which can be put on top of 2.2 . I was already furious firmware 2.2 . Such a wonderful player released with such raw software , and with such stupid restrictions . I have had a desire to sell the player , and more never to buy the company's products Cayin !!!!

    @pr0b3r - Just curious, do you have issues with gapless with i5, bro?
  10. pr0b3r
    Unfortunately and to be honest, I don't use the gapless feature that much. Only when I want to listen to a full live album, I do use it. Is it not working for you?
  11. nmatheis Contributor
    It does work for me, but others are reporting that it doesn't work for them. I'm wondering what your experience is with gapless. Does it work for you with live albums, or do hear a gap between songs?
  12. pr0b3r
    I'll try it later when I get home from work. I'll post my feedback here and also send you by PM.

    Does the DLNA works on i5? I tried to play from dlna, it keeps sayings i5 has stopped error message. I am using firmware 2.2.

    If it does not work, when will you plan to fix it?

  15. pr0b3r
    Hey bro, @nmatheis, I finally tested mine on gapless and it's working well, though on some albums there's a split second pause, but barely audible.
