Amp3 Technical Spot: FAQs regarding SD cards and Cowon Z2 file transfers


We get quite a varied range of questions via our Technical Support phone line, and we’re more than happy to help where we can. We’ll feature some of the more regular questions in this newsletter in case any of the answers are of interest.

Can you tell me if 64GB SDXC cards are compatible with Cowon’s latest players such as the X9?

No, SDXC cards are not compatible with the current range of Cowon players that feature memory card slots, such as the X9 and the Z2.

The Cowon players are only currently compatible with SD and SDHC (High Capacity) cards up to 32GB in size, the new SDXC (eXtended Capacity) cards are not supported.

As the cards are electrically the same in terms of the socket type and connection it may be possible that they are supported in the future through updates to the firmware, but for the time being please be aware we have received no information regarding this possibility from Cowon themselves.

I can’t transfer music files to my Cowon Z2 from my Apple Mac computer, can you help?

This is a problem we have heard from a couple of customers and it comes down to the format used by Android on the Z2. On the Z2 the internal memory is formatted as an NTFS partition.

By default in MacOS X, NTFS partitions are set to read only, so you can view the files on the Z2 when you have it connected via USB but are unable to write/copy files onto the player.

There are settings in MacOS you can edit to allow read/write access by default, and a quick search on the internet will bring up guides to show how to do this. However, as we do not have any Apple Macs ourselves here at AMP3 so we are unable to test of the solutions we have found ourselves.

“All the core strengths of the Cowon S9 are still in place, including superb sound and excellent video quality, while the addition of a memory expansion slot and improved battery life are very welcome. The wholly unexpected and unheralded appearance of support for H.264 video and AAC audio now makes the J3 one of the best PMPs on the market.” RegHardware




Cowon are a brand known for excellence in sound. The J3 both embodies this reputation and exceeds it. Winning the prestigious redDot Design Award in 2010, this award added to a long list of accolades for Cowon.


Using the BBE+ audio architecture the J3 is capable of making poor quality audio files shine while bringing out the best in the better files. This MP3 player is not only capable of delivering unwavering quality of sound it can also play high quality videos. The individual pixels in the 3.3” AMOLED screen produce their own light meaning the on screen picture changes more fluidly than on an LCD screen.


Delivering what the consumer wants, Cowon listened to customer feedback and updated the J3 to include expandable memory. Add an SD card and build on the memory the 8GB, 16GB and 32GB models can already hold.
