C2 tips and tricks
Ok, So every player has its little quarks and uniq Issues, So I figure it may be a good idea to have a thread like many others do with tricks to working around issues with the c2.
1. Mp3Tag is your friend, if you want the player to refresh quickly you best strip/delete any un-needed tags and only have 1 tag version in the file.
have mp3tag remove all but ID3v2.3 ISO-8859-1
remove any extra data like crc hash or the like, this info isnt needed and will slow database refresh.
once you do this alone, it should have a noticeable effect on refresh times if you like most people have alot of files with extensive tags.
2. format the player AND sdcard with the SDFormatter before loading them with music/audiobooks/exct. https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_3/
4. SD card class: some say this dosnt or shouldnt matter, in my Experience, it does matter with the c2, my class10 cards over 2x as fast as my class 6 card with same data on it(just tested)
the players reader does seem to limit write speeds a bit, but not to horrible,(not like my d2 where i NEVER wrote stuff to the card using the players reader)
Also, I recommend never letting the player battery run dry when in sleep mode, this seems to have a higher risk of bricking and forcing a TCC tool debrick.
keep the firmware up to date(1.17 as of this post).
