Disappointed, continued problems

Set up a playlist today and nothing but problems.
Every track cut off within a few seconds giving an error “unable to decode…” I couldn’t capture the error.
The system failed to shut down properly leading to need to power off, I thought I’d try a fresh install to find the memory card hard died.
It seems to be one issue after another.

So tired of this, I just want to listen to my music and not have to tinker constantly.
I’m taking myself away to await a new memory card and another providers software.
Thanks for the help I have received up to now, good luck guys.

As always, I am sorry to hear such thing. This is even more motivating for us.
In any case, from what you describe (and to your issues history), to me it seems a Power supply issue, which results in your DAC not working properly.
