    Hello

    I have just ordered this player with a Samsung 256GB microSD card.

    I don't have time to read all 1700 pages in this thread.

    Is the internal and microSD memory "seamless"?

    i.e. is the library handled automatically between locations, or do I need to navigate internal and microSD memory separately?

    Thanks

    Interesting. I haven't had a single crash or fault on V3.00.

    Congrats! You must navigate witch storage you want (in german: Systemspeicher or SD-Karte)!

    Ah, OK. So no way of using both internal and microSD for the library?
     
  5. 480126
    No! internal or Micro SD. I have all classical Music on internal and the other - Jazz, Blues, Pop usw. - on SD! Or you select in ABC (for exampel internal A-H and I-Z SD!

    Neither yet, it’s only some (at least to me) unknown manufacturers as of yet

    The library category views (genre, artist and so on) span both storage locations seamlessly, it is only Folder view and playlists that destinguishes between the 2

    I was exploring amazon just now, and i saw a kingston 512gb micro sd priced at 165$ (thats a good price i think)

    well kingston is not sandisk or samsung, but i think still it is a nice brand, i might pull the trigger on one but i guess i will wait for black friday and see how the rest of the prices will go.

    Ye i’m tempted to pull tge trigger on Sandisk 400gb. Amazon reduced it to £83 overnight

    The only missing feature for me is a search bar,

    other than that i find Sony UI to be the best of any dap i have tried ( i didn't try any AK )

    but no library limitations that i know of, i am using internal memory 128gb + micro sd 400gb, library around 25000 songs, the UI is fluid and fast, no features are missing for me and very easy to operate.

    as for your question, when you navigate by library (All Songs, Artists, Genres etc..) both internal and external are included seamlessly, and shuffle works on both. only when you navigate by file explorer as folders you will find internal memory and sdcard.

    Thanks. That is what I was hoping for.

    Haven’t seen the Kingston yet. Just searched Amazon UK and the 512 Samsung is out at £210, that’s new since I last searched

    Too bad US Amazon does not have it yet.

    indeed , thanx for the heads up

    still the 400gb card is down to £83, lowest i have seen

    to me the 400gb is the best bang for buck atm , if there was something like a 800Gb well then yes i would consider it - but to pay an extra 130 pounds for just 100GB more....nope.
