About This File

From valued forum member Avrin's topic, SonicStage 4.3 "Ultimate" Release 2:

Since the "Ultimate" 4.3 version seems to have gained quite a popularity, and appears to be less glitchy than any previous one, I decided to build a second release. This is purely a cosmetic update.

What's changed from the first release:

1. Updated Registry Information Setup is used now. This doesn't affect minidisc functionality in any way, but may add support for some newer ATRAC phones (you still need to provide the respective drivers).

2. The link to Minidisc Community Forums in the Help menu is replaced with a link to Sony Insider Forums.

3. Installation package extraction path is no longer saved to registry.

4. Windows Installer 2.0 distribution package is not included.

The complete list of changes from the official VAIO version (including changes introduced in the first release):

1. System prerequisites from Microsoft (Windows Installer 2.0, DirectX 9.0c, Windows Media Format 9, Windows Media Format 9.5, Data Access Components 2.5) are not included.

2. OpenMG Secure Module version 5.0 with the respective Registry Information is used instead of the original patched version 4.7.

3. Sony CONNECT Store support is no longer installed.

4. SonicStage Security Update is installed automatically.

5. Latest Personal Audio Drivers for SONY devices are installed automatically.

6. The VAIO support link in the Help menu is replaced with a link to Sony Insider Forums.

NOTE: If you have applied the experimental SonicStage patch 4.3.02 for Vista/Windows 7, you'll need to re-apply it after installation.

Just Fantastic! I am sort of tech geek with a love of 'retro'. With all the new music hardware, phones, flash players, etc. I would consider this a bit of retro music player. I received my first Minidisc player last week from ebay and was very fired up. I got the NetMD MZ-NE410 in almost new condition, BUT...the Sony software was a total dream smasher. I searched and searched all night, tried my best to get it working but constantly got the 'cannot transfer issues' or it would get to the end, and stop at the last 3 or 4 tracks. Last night I found this site! Wow, the Ultimate Edition saved my bacon and sanity! I uninstalled the Sony version, installed this and am now cranking out my metal better than ever. Thank you so much for this, and I love the site. Glad to see a home for Minidisc users that is still alive and active!
