    They need to be FAT32-formatted.

    Thanks.  So a 200 gig micro sdxc card works then?  Thought someone recently said that it only shows up to 128 when copied over?

    I have sold my Plenue D quite some time, so I am not 100% sure anymore and cannot comment on the 200 GB card as I have only tested with 64 and 128 GB cards. What I still know though is that when I formatted my 128 GB card into FAT32, it was recognised without any problems.

    Maybe someone else who has tested his Plenue D with a 200 GB card could chime in.

    Some in this thread have stated they are using 200GB with no issues. Go figure.

    My Sandisk 200gb SDXC works just fine. To be completely honest, I haven't checked to see if all files are playable as I use it mostly for listening my FLAC and high bit rate MP3 rips - I have about 20000 tracks in total including my first 15-odd years worth if electronic music storage (I buy a LOT of music) so will check to see if anything is missing when I get back to the UK (currently on holiday).

    No 200gb does not work. Player will not be able to play a lot of files. I have it and  tried it few times  and it ain't happening. 128gb is a max.

    It might be that you are hitting the files/folders limitation of the player... not that the player can't read a 200gb card... Don't have the player here, but tried it a few months ago with my own microSD (which I'm currently using on an HTC phone that I use as my mp3 player via USB OTG) and it didn't had any problems reading the card...

    I can confirm that the 128GiB limit applies independently of any external file/folder limits, based on my experience with the latest firmware (1.14).
    The external memory has a limit, I believe, of 16000 files and 8000 folders.
    My music collection (all in FLAC) is currently is 7574 files across 587 folders. Though I can successfully format a 256GB (~238GiB) card in the player as FAT32 and copy across all files within Windows, the player itself will not read or play files above 128GiB, which suggests a software issue rather than a hardware one.
    It has been suggested that this may be a 28-bit addressing issue. (2^28 = 268,435,456 sectors of 512 bytes each, resulting in a max readable size of 137,438,953,472 bytes, which equates to ~ 137.4GB or 128GiB.) It could just be a coincidental correlation of course, rather than a causative link. Perhaps someone just put in a 128GiB software limit so they could guarantee it worked for cards up to this amount or for more nefarious reasons.

    Interesting... I don't own it so can't double check. But that sucks... Does this happens when you use the unit to format the card though? (i.e. is it a software issue on their part when formatting cards?). Mine was formatted in Windows and I've successfully used it on every phone/PMP I can get my hands on. LOL.

    Does anyone know if it would be possible for cowon to eventually develop a line out,be it via the micro USB or the 3.5? The mojo can't work with the plenue, and I can't help but think that it would benefit more if I didn't have to double amp my alo rx.

    Hey I just made a review of the Tuff Luv case for the Plenue D. Hope this helps.

    Pleneu M, P1 ,S have Optical out.
  13. whatislife
    Ahh. Is that then cowon telling us to buy their more premium products? Seems counterintuitive to me, shouldn't their top tier players be less reliant on external amplification/dac, as opposed to their $200 mid-fi offering...
  14. leo5111
    well even a 99 buck fiio x1 has a headphone jack-line out option so a 200 buck device not to have it is BS [​IMG]
  15. whatislife
    But is it possible to somehow code the plenue d to accept micro USB out? Something like a rockbox but limited to the USB i guess... One can dream.
