I just bought an X1. I formatted the card, copied all of my music over (about 14000 songs) and then updated the library. When I did this, the library recognized all the songs!

Then a week later I reformatted my card and copied my music over again and now the library only updated to 5800 songs. From what I read, playlists are limited to 5800 songs, but I thought the library didn't have a limit!

Am I just remembering things wrong? I don't see how I could have a library with over 5800 songs one week and then the next week not.

The X1 has always had this limit:

If you have somehow stumbled on a workaround, we would all be VERY interested.

Maybe when I first put the music on it only loaded 5800 songs but I just didn't realize, but I'm like 90% sure that it loaded all of my music since now it doesn't load any artists past the letter "P" and yesterday I listened to an artist that begins with "R". That artist that begins with "R" is no longer visible

As others have noted, the only real workaround is to "browse files" rather than browsing by category. Browsing files will show the entire contents of the Micro SD, regardless of how many files and folders there are. However, the firmware will only index 5800 songs into the device's memory, so browsing by category will be severely limited.

I do keep my music library well organized, so this isn't a particular difficulty for me, but there are times when I may want to, say, shuffle songs from a particular genre, and this is where the shortcoming becomes frustrating.

FiiO has been promising a fix to this since January, and so far nothing. (In fact, the discussion in the link that you posted seemed to imply that this fix would be in the firmware update that was released this past spring, but it turned out not to be so.) Most infuriating of all is how FiiO was very open in interacting with people asking about the fix before the firmware update, but seem to turn a blind eye to questions asking for an update on the process. I don't mind having to wait for the feature as long as the company is up-front and honest with us, and doesn't get our hopes up just to dash them.

I have the exact same problem with the X3 II. This issue is getting very very annoying to me. I enjoy shuffling all my music. The workaround for me (just a bandaid mind you) was to create a playlist of ALL my music, then just browse to that, and click a song (of course having it set up to play randomly). I don't really like this option, as I can't listen randomly by genre, or artist, or album, but only by tracks.

  Also, something I have noticed (2 times now) with my X5, is similar to your X1 in that it can't find some things. I do not know that answer as of yet, but am getting closer to the reasons why this might be happening (to me anyhow). When I fill one of the cards up to 3gb or so free, I noticed that some of the music doesn't show up at all (browse, or database). There are some songs that show up, but when I go to play them it says the file doesn't exist. I can browse to the folder where it is supposed to be, and it doesn't show up. If I take the card out (or just hook the player up to the PC) and place it in the PC, I can browse the card and all is there.  I contacted Fiio about this the first time, and there was no help coming for it (the usual reset, etc....).

  I found two ways to get around this. One was to get rid of stuff, and free up some more space on the card, and the other was to (instead of just copying) sync to the card using Mediamonkey or something like that. It take a WHOLE lot longer to do it this way, but all songs seem to show up after this.

  I am not sure why they implemented the 5800 track limit on the X3 II right out of the box, as I thought we were passed that point in the game. I'm kinda' surprised that the X1 still has that limit too. Fiio please get rid of the 5800 track limit!? Quit releasing new products until you fix the old ones functionality (search function anyone?). People are going to start to lose confidence in you as a company and think you are like Samsung, only caring about the newest products put out there, and leaving the old ones in the graveyard. I for one, love the sound of both my X3 II, AND my X5, but I am not seeing any resolutions on issues I have seen in these forums from day one (SOME have been addressed though, so thanks for that).

  Sorry for my long-winded rant!

Sorry for the inconvenience that has been brought to you all. It's now certain that the new X3II firmware without the song limit will be released within a month, and for X1 it will be a little after that.

Any update FiiO-Devin on the X3ii 5800 song limit firmware update?  I'm waiting on it most eagerly as I wouldn't have bought my X3ii if I'd realized it had this limit.

I contacted Fiio over facebook. They said the firmware update that fixes the 5800 song problem is currently being tested and is scheduled to be released "next month"

This has been pushed back a few times already, but it's good to hear that they are in the testing phase. I wonder if they could make the new firmware available for any of us to test...

Just looking for an update on the Fiio 5800 song limit being lifted with new FW due (maybe) in August. It is now 20 AUG 2015 can you advise what stage the FW update is at and a potential release date?

We sense the yell of the x1 owners for the new version to remove the limit. I think next month it will come out.

I was just joking that by the time they fix it for the X1, there will be a 2nd generation X1 (which will probably have the 5800 limit too)

  I know right?! Like the X3II did when it came out.... The X5II had it also, but they fixed it VERY quickly for some reason.

  Not sure why they don't just fix the fw before shipping a new product. I realize they all have slight differences in the software, but if they planned on doing this fix, why not do it in the factory before release, so they don't have to re-write the whole code (as Yellow has said they had to do with the X3II)?!

I dont think they would be any more versions of the DAP out unless Fiio is getting all their stocks exhausted. Now all the X1 users can add more songs with the limitation being removed by Fiio in their new firmware update.. It was a long pending matter.
WE would only see firmware updates and not new versions of players except for the high end X7 in progress. cheers.
