Any 64 bit drivers for Sony IC UX533 or UX543 ?

2 posts in this topic

Long time Minidisc user and glad to be still in operation in Windows 8.1 thanks to this forum.

Not looking to switch, but I'm down to my last 2 Hi-MD portables and 1 Hi-MD deck and thinking of replacements.

So I bought a couple Sony IC-UX533 and a UX543 (not arrived yet) as a possible replacement (because I use MD for unattended/timed/voice activated recording and pitch control up to 2x normal speed).

So... first thing I notice in Windows 8.1, is that when I connect the UX533, it keeps refreshing the device and can't connect to the internal memory.  I'm guessing the problem is the same as MD, that is, I need a 64-bit driver.

Any ideas how to make it work??  Much appreciated!

Very unlikely.

More probably something about your Windows USB hardware.

If there's really a problem with unsigned drivers, I'd expect a logical error message.

None of Sony's current products require special drivers AFAIK.

One more thing, I'd be inclined to send them both back and get something from the ICD-SX series (712,813?), or possibly the NW-F885/6/7 (must get Japanese model if you want to play ATRAC files yourself rather than converting them).
