Anyone have a good understanding of how many audio tracks the PCM will support across both SD cards?
The manual indicates 10,000 tracks on one media device, limited to 1000 in a given folder or playlist.
So much for putting 33k tracks onto a 128gb SD card. At some point the PCM just stops trying to show you tracks, even though you know there's files in a particular folder. It does seem to cut off at the same place every time, but I have no idea how to predict it. That is, on a 128gb card that has 33k+ tracks on it there's always a few folders I can go into that have no tracks listed, even though the files ARE present. And I can put those same folders onto another SD card (with less tracks on it, of course) and they do show up. So it's not some kind of strange filename characters kind of problem. It's all just plain ASCII lettering, nothing fancy.
I'm wondering if anyone's tried using an SD card with more than one disk partition on it. Might that work around the 10k limit? Can the PCM even see multiple partitions on the same SD card? Given how slooooowly SD cards tend to write it's tedious trying to mock-up an example without taking alllllll day.
I'm not 'set' on making this work but it'd be handy to just load up the whole media library and have it available.
I had a similar problem in relation to "missing" tracks, where I knew I had a lot more tracks on the SD card than what was being loaded in the PCM.
It was because the files not being shown were MP4 files, and some others.
Make sure that the file extensions are either MP3 or WAV.
No idea on the track limit since I haven't reached it yet.
