    No issues found. I’m not going to consider this card defective since it works in just about everything else except this ported software.

    My X3 died. It's not taking up charge. Battery issue?
  3. Slater
    Mine does that when the battery dies fully. I just plug it into the charger for about an hour, hit the reset button, and then it seems to ‘wake up’. Then I leave it on the charger until fully charged.

    Apple products act in a very similar way when fully discharged.

    If that doesn’t help, it may be the battery. Someone posted the link to the correct-fitting batteries in this thread (from AliExpress).

    If you do replace the battery, you’ll need to transfer over the little 2-pin plug from the stock battery (being sure to observe the correct polarity).

    Hope that helps.

    I left it on charge for 5-6 hours on a 5v-2A charger but still it didn't wake up. I used it yesterday and it gave backup of about 5-6 hours atleast. Not sure if it's the battery.

    It had been a while since the last time i used the rockboxed Xduoo X3 and after i unplugged it, it stayed stuck at the Rockbox boot screen.
    Anyway to reset it? Should i use the reset button with the rockbox firmware?

    Edit: The reset button worked just fine :)

    Yeah, that should be more than enough time.

    Just for thoroughness though, I would try it one more time, but using a smaller charger (1A or less, such as an Apple brick) and a different cable. You could also use the USB port on a computer (500mA for USB 2.0).

    I have had trouble in the past with high amp chargers and the x3. That's why I mention it.

    Try the reset button. This helped me on similar situation, when charge won't wake player up.

    Didn't work. Not even sure if new battery will solve it.

    What happens when you connect it to your pc\Mac? Is it recognized?

    Can someone tell me how to access the second SD card slot? I have Rockbox installed in slot 1, and just put a second card in slot 2, but darned if I can see how to access the files on it.

    Under files I see <micros SD1>, but cannot see the other card. Do I have to install Rockbox on both cards?

    Any help is appreciated!

    Is the second Card formatted FAT32 ?

    If it's bigger than 32 gig, your computer will have formatted it as EXFAT, unless you used a specific formatting app that forced FAT32.

    Rockbox can only see a fat 32 formatted card.

    It works in a FiiO player, but I don't know what is is formatted.

    Thanks, I'll check to see.

    Properties show it is formatted FAT32

    If you are using a Windows computer, connect the card in a card reader and then right click on it and select properties. There should be a line of info that tells you if it's FAT32 or EXFAT.

    My FiiO X3II can read EXFAT formatted cards, so it could be exfat.

    It is a 128 GB card, properties state it is formatted FAT32
  15. mbwilson111
    Is the card new? A new card of that size will not be fat32 unless you did the formatting after purchase. A fake 128 card will come as fat32 because it will really be a small capacity card that was flashed with fake info. I received one once from ebay. Got a refund.
