Library Scan Utility

Edited by dilburt at 2016-5-12 11:12

There is a utility called SAMediaScanner.exe that can help you locate any corrupted files in your library that will often be the cause of lock-ups during updates. You can download it here

Here is a great threaddiscussing update problems.

I found all of this stuff when I got my X5II and was going through the same lockup problems you guys are having until I solved the problems with my media files. Based on my own experience and the results of others on the forums I'm pretty sure that 99.9% of these lock-up problems are caused by corrupted metadata in the media files. Make sure to read down to djx's post about TagScan (XDLab).

I consider it a great loss for the consumers not being able to have more gigabytes of music through the OTG.

Hello everybody,

I don't know where to put that so I'm here.

From the beginning, I can't update my FIIO X5 2nd Gen (which is currently on firmware 1.1) and I tried by many ways but could'nt succeed..

I bought 2 different micro Sd Cards of 8 Go and 32 Go each, format them with my X5 before puting it back in the slot 1 and and I always got the notification "Update file not found".

So please don't send the usual thread to upgrade my FIIO because I think I followed it step by step.

Could you help me with that, what could be the problem, I saw i'm not the only to have it. Is there a trick ?

Thank you in advance for your answer,

Regards

Felix

Hello everybody,

I don't know where to put that so I'm here.

Hello. Frouxy

This is what i always do.
1. Get a 8gB SD card and and format as Fat32 in your X5 II player by removing the card from the extreme left side slot which is SD Card Slot 1 and remove it.
2. Download firmware file which is 2.0 verson latest on your pc desktop. open the zip file after downloading.
3. insert the 8gb sd card in your memory card slot of your pc and drag the file which u unzipped to the sd card.
Eject the scdard from your computer and insert it back in slot 1 of the X511 player.
4. press the power button of the player and switch it off.
5. while pressing the top left side back button of the player put the power button on.
6. This will bring you to the update screen.
Remove your fingers from all buttons and let the firmware update the player.
7. The player will restart  after update.
8. Now remove the sdcard of 8 GB & insert your card which has music files.
9. You player will auto update your library.
That is it it is done.

Alos note: Fiio players are only compatible with Kingston, Sandisk & samsung Original cards.

OTG function has been disabled for the software to run smoothly and will not be implement anytime in future.

So I went back to the 1.2 firmware. There is nothing in version 2.0 as good as I could have GB more music in OTG. I think I lost a great opportunity to please the consumer.

OK, but just improve the firmware to suit the devices. I consider it a significant loss disable OTG. Works for me, and earn 50% more gigabytes, no great loss to users?

This answer is exactly what I was afraid of when I saw that this firmware was presented as a "Final" release. Fiio only uses the term "Final" when they intend to stop firmware development for a device.

Hello. Frouxy

This is what i always do.

Hello Shitzu,

That's what I have done a few times with 2 different micro SD cards. Do I need to buy a Sandisk's ? A guy from the customer service of FIIO told me to try with one of those in 8Gb.

I will try that way and see what happens othewise I'll have to send it back to my seller and ask for a replacement.

Thank you for your kelp, anyway

Regards

Felix
