Naurd NW-E00X Mp3 File Manager

Rate this question

Question

Hello all,

Using Linux at home, I was faced with the problem that I could not tranfer MP3 files on my NW-E003F sony player...

So I created one of my own : http://sourceforge.net/projects/nwe00xmp3man

This is a Java software and the current version is 0.03. Seems to work quite well for now.

You will need Java 1.5 installed on the PC or the player itself to make NWE00xMp3FileManager work.

Also, you will need a clean copy of you OMGAUDIO folder on your player. If you lose it, you will have to use SonicStage to make another one...

(The folder initialisation will be soon incorporated in the NWE00xMp3FileManager player itself...)

*** BE WARNED ***

SonicStage won't work with the player if you use this software

*********************

Features :

+ Import any mp3 from your hd (multiselection supported...)

+ Export any mp3 file from your player to your HD

+ Delete mp3 or any tracker on the player

+ Quite fast while tranfering

+ Works under Windows and Linux (should also work under Mac...)

Missing

- No ID Tag support (for now...)

- No Album support (for now...)

- No support for ATRAC/AAC/WMA (will come soon)

- No documentation yet (any volonteer?...)

- 255 files max...

To come...

+ Support for albums

+ More thant 255 files support...

+ Support for AAC/WMA

Your comments are welcomed...

Pat!

Hi, I just downloaded this software and it works very well. I'm curious about the ID3 tags - do you copy the album/song title information to the database and then strip the ID3 tags?

One other question, are you intending to support playlists in this new application you're developing? I hope so! Cheers.

Oh, my God. Pat, I'm a Chinese girl. Your software is amazing! although it cost me some time to find out how to make it work. Luckily, I succeeded after I tried OMGAUDIO.ZIP. Thank you so much!

Now I'm listening to TRANSFORMERS! Thx again~~~

Dear asadasad22

you ask about the A608.

I've just got an NW-A806 ( it was free with a sony remote speaker system!) to complement my NW-S703f

If that's the series twhat you mean, then no, the current version of this program does not appear to work.

There are subtle differences in the way the program uses the folder hierarchy, and so the player reports there is no music on the device.

regards

Neil.

Sorry if I sound like it's a competition, but I really do like the way ML_Sony handles tags. Right now, it works fine with my MP3 player. Problem is that I'm now on Linux, and really would like to reboot fewer times to Windows. I know Naurd works on Linux as it's Java, but the last time I used it, you had to create a new database from scratch or db values would mess up. Doing this would also do search function stop working, and I really like Artist - Album sorting most.

I know I could create a Artist - Album sorting myself using folder names, but it's that my MP3 files are well tagged and I'd like to make use of it (like I said before, ML_Sony does it perfectly).

Do you plan on supporting tag reading like ML_Sony does?

Thanks in advance.

Hello friends.

I have a NW-E005F and use a Intel-Mac with Mac OS X 10.4.10 and can't use the manager.

I guess i am doing all right (dropping the .jar file and downloaded OMGAUDIO folder to player's root), and when I open the manager, i can't do anything, i can't update any file to the player, all the buttons appears to be innactive. When i left the original OMGAUDIO (the folder with my musics), the manager read the albums and the songs, but i still can't do anything, as delete or transfer any file.

What am i doing wrong?

I am dropping both the ffmpegwin32 and the ffmpegX (for Mac OS) to the player root.

Any idea?

Thankss!!! And congrats for your job... its helping a lot of people!!

Hi

I have an NW-E507 player and Mac-OSX. I've been trying to install the file manager but haven't managed to get it to work.

The player appears as an "external device". I've deleted the files off it and put the .jar file, OMG-Audio file and ffmpeg-win32 files onto it. THen I've run the .jar file from the player. It gets to the stage of "scanning" and no further.

I must be doing something wrong... either that or the file manager just isn't compatible with my player and mac.

Could someone write a simple step-by-step guide for helping me to install the file manager and get it working?

Thanks

Sarah

Hi to All..

@ Patrick great thanx to you and to all who have helped with this file manager..

Well I just bought the nw-s705f and the sonic-stage is indeed very annoying!! I have linux and happily I found about this file manager.

Unfortunately while trying to run the .jar, there were a lot of exceptions thrown and the procedure was not working properly.

I tried it through windows and worked perfectly.

In next post I'll write down the exceptions been thrown, in case you can help me fix this.

I notice that I can rename a folder but I can't move a song from one folder to another. Is there a way or it has to be fixed?

Anyway I'm studying computer engineering and software. So I would be glad to help. Mail me, if there is some way I can help. I would be glad to.

Forget my previous question.

I fixed it by formatting the player in my Windows.

Now I have another error.

Although everything seems to work fine (transfer songs, everything OK), when I try to play music, it shows me a "Format Error" message.

Hi all!

Ok, it's been 6 months, so I had to do something... v0.13 is out!

There are no big changes except the now it needs Java 6.

What was done:

- Better handling of mp3s (Thanks to Neil Wallace for his hints)

- Better podcast compatibility

- Removed the "Shoutcast" tab, nobody talk about it, so surely is was not used.

- Language supported : English, French, Deutch and Swedish

- Other small modifications.

It this version is good, the it will be the last... We are working on a totally new version that will handle more features and more players (Look for Symphonic...)

Have fun!

Hi everybody !!

As you may know, development of "NW-E00X Mp3 File Manager" is now over. Symphonic is a project which replace it. I'm a developper in that project, and as Patrick is taking a break, I will introduce it to you !

Symphonic is a project around Sony device working with ML_sony to provide a library to communicate with Sony device. Symphonic has two main goal for the moment :

  • JSymphonic (replacing NW-E00X Mp3 File Manager)
  • an amaroK plugin (amaroK is powerful linux jukebox)

I've released yesterday the first beta version of JSymphonic. Please note that some features from NW-E00X Mp3 File Manager are not yet implemented in JSymphonic.

To download it directly, you can click here. To visit our page on SourceForge, click here.

French people, you can visit generationmp3.com.

I will not answer the last question you had here for two reason : 1) I advise you to use JSymphonic 2) I didn't code anything on NW-E00X Mp3 File Manager, so I can't really help you.

Enjoy !! :)

Skiro'n,

Wow I am unsure who to thank. I had quite a bit of trouble getting this going, not sure why. I am running Feisty and for some reason the previous File manager would not work. I read through the first twelve pages and saw there were a few similiar problems but I was always getting the ????? ./OMGAUDIO ????? I could leave it open and click around and eventually I would get rid of the ?????... and it would scan, but the add files in lower right hand corner was grayed out and did not function.

After several hours I was finally going to try it on Windows as I went through the error code 00005e36 problems earlier but thought I would give it a try, then I go to the last post here about JSymphonic, I downloaded it and did not really read the read me, just glanced at it and already had the OMGAUDIO on the player so I replaced the jar files to the new JSymphonic and added the XML just to be safe and VIOLA in a split second was able to transfer files.

I am not sure why I had so much troubles with Patrick's version, I had tried it a few months back on a previous Feisty and it behaved the same way and I installed it correctly. However thanks a lot Patrick for without your great work on the NW-E00x there would not be this player.

Funny thing is, I had Gparted open and was going to try to format it however Gparted did not find the device, although it was found and identified by Ubuntu. I then plugged in a card reader and Gparted found my memory stick, unmounted and remounted my Sony and Gparted could not find it.

Anyways JSymphonic worked like a charm right out of the box and I did not have to revert back to Windows.

Thanks for the great program and I am still scratching my head as to why the other was not working, it seemed like it was trying because it would eventually find the OMGAUDIO folder after starting out with the ????/

Magnum, James23 & obi wan kenobi, thank you for using JSymphonic ! I'm glad you like it. Development is still on, and new features are coming !

frankcelis : the best thing to do is to format the walkman directly from the walkman itself (using the menu,... ...). Start by make it works with SonicStage, and once everything runs OK, try JSymphonic.
