Default So I passed the 4000 file limit...

and my D2 didn't blow up! I did this with the help of the D2 Wiki which has about 1100 files.

http://iaudiophile.net/forums/showthread.php?t=20667

Is the limit for audio only?

Yes, audio (and possibly video, but I'm not certain) - the limit is because of the databasing function. Photos, texts, etc should not fall under that limitation.

You know, with x.57 firmwares the limit is 4000 internal + 4000 external = 8000 all in all.

Oh, I know. I'm only talking about the D2. I went onto the file directory, brought up properties and it gave me the file amount. I took the SD card out because it's a pain in the neck when you're trying to get something up and running.

Completely off-topic, have you seen D2 Cover Flow?

That is my understanding of how this database limitation works, gathered from info here and on iAudiophile. I can't test it myself, since I have a 2GB D2 and an 8GB SD card (and no need for texts and photos on my player). Maybe you could give it a try and report back?

Ok heres the scoop, I 1st put 10,000 picture files on the SD card but I couldn't view those on the D2. Its new and I'm not sure it's even possible. 2nd I put 4,086 pictures in 136 folders on the D2 itself to the tune of 1.05g, there was 10.3g of music in 2,190 files and 1,262 folders already on the player. Checked the picture files and was able to view all of them. So this myth is busted(sorry, US television) over 6,000 files and almost 1,400 folders just on the 16g internal. Didn't check the vids or text just pics but it looks like you were correct the limits just music and maybe vids. And now back to the show

Thanks for the breaking news. Good to know it's really just for the A/V database...

Wootsauce! That means I actually could put a bazillion ebooks on my D2! Which would not only be totally unreasonable but also ridiculous... -ly awesome.
