    I've not experienced the kind of delay you are getting so I may not be in the best position to provide a solution. Might be worth a shot trying a different cable and / or different computer.

    When i conect in mtp mode it show up instantly but there is nothing inside folder so cannot drag music over.
    when i conect in Usb mode i can drag music over but it take long time to show up and windows always promp for usb mtp driver, this is the biggest problem i have now

    i only have this cable that came with cayin

    Hello, How do i get Album art to show up under Artist in cayin i5 hibymusic i only get album art under Albums and also on each songs
    when i click Artist tab in hibymusic album art are empty grey squares
    All songs are tagged with Tag3rename

    Sorry, you can't display the album art on the Artist tab. The Artist icon is designed to display an artist profile photo stored on the music server in China, you need to enable WiFi connection, let the player connect to the music server, acquire the profile photo and then display on the i5 screen. Unfortunately the connection between the music server to service request outside China is not very stable and there are occasional obstacle or "wall" get into the way "unexpectedly".

    Hmm, I'd wondered about that myself (none of my tracks are tagged with any art other than a cover/disc image, but the foobar2000 tagger does support artist images as well - those wouldn't be displayed on the i5 in any case though?).

    I've connected my i5 to a couple of systems (Win10) and it mounted as a storage device without issue, so I can't help with that (I've also used ES file explorer to copy files onto the device from network storage, which also works).

    Other then the availability of Google Play, you should notice that the Personal Cloud Music gateway is changed from Baidu to Dropbox.

    Can you tell me where are you located and which shop you bought your i5 DAP from? Selling a Chinese version i5 to an oversee customer without warning or explain the different in advance? This is hardly acceptable. Customers should not be required to go through this tough learning curve before they "rectify" their device to the correct firmware version.

    If you want to transfer music from your computer to i5, you should use MTP mode. The internal memory and TF card in i5 will show up like a USB reader. If there is nothing inside folder and you cannot drag music over, then something is wrong in the connection. Please check the Device manager of your computer and check out the USB section, see if any items is/are marked as exclamation mark or question mark? Most users can transfer file in MTP mode straight away, although the file transfer speed is not particularly impressive. If you want to transfer music to a large capacity TF card (64G or above), you might consider getting a USB 3.0 card reader that support TF card directly. It works much faster then copying music via the Type C port of i5. USB 3.0 card reader are kind of expensive 2 years ago, but the price has gone down significantly. The following is an example of that:

    In fact, even when i want to copy music file to internal memory of i5, I find it more trouble free by copying the music file to a TF card first, then then "move" the file from TF card to internal memory through the ES Explorer app. The transfer rate from TF card to Internal memory is a lot faster then copying from PC to internal memory directly.

    I haven't try the Foobar2000 artist image tag, so I am not sure about that, but i doubt that i5 will recognize that.

    My friend, I understand you are taking every opportunity to step on Cayin, in this thread as well as in other DAP discussion. I can't stop you from doing that, so be my guest. My advice is to do it with patient. if you rush in too fast, you'll shoot at empty air and lost your credibility, this will dilute the negative impact that you have created, wouldn't it?

    Out of curiosity, I did a quick search and see that in less than a year you made over 230 posts in this one thread, most of them negative about i5 and Cayin. I do understand, people are vocal about their problems, and that's what forums are for to share their problems and to look for a solution, but over 230 mostly negative posts in the same thread?!? I think everybody got your point after the first dozen lol!!!, now it just looks like you are really doing it on purpose with an agenda... :triportsad:
