It's possible that you might have to get rid of existing Sony NetMD drivers. (look at all oem<nn>.inf in the \windows\inf directory for text Sony NetMD)
It's also possible that you might have to override the STOP! message when Windows discovers the driver hash doesn't match properly.
It's possible that you have BOTH of the above problems.

I don't see why that affects Sonic Stage. Generally system dll changes would not have any effect on a roughly 10 year old app like Sonic Stage.
