    NW A808

    Hi, There are many alternatives to image converter. I use XviD4PSP to convert various formats for the A808. http://www.winnydows.com/ Just remember to drag and drop the converted videos into the Video folder of the A808. Hope it helps.
  2. The installation CD that came with my A808 contains multiple region SonicStage 4.3 CP. If you choose to install Asia as the region then you won't get Connect store .
  3. If the files aren't in the recycle bin then you will have to resort to third party software. Try RecoverMyFiles (http://www.recovermyfiles.com/) I used it before and it manage salvage some photos that I deleted accidentally in the recycle bin.
  4. Have you tried opening your MP3 in Mp3tag v2.39 and see if the year shows up under the YEAR field. http://www.mp3tag.de/en/
  5. If you've purchased a A80x recently in Europe and register your serial no. on Sony site you should get this voucher for 10 free connect downloads as I've did.
  6. It's unfortunate Kansai that you encountered language display problems with your ex A808, but I can honestly tell you that my A808 can display Japanese and Chinese text together without problems. I have Japanese and Chinese playlist too as shown in the attached images. However as other people have mentioned here the newer A818 doesn't have bookmarks that you can create on-the-fly, but I'm sure it will display other languages just fine.
  7. Since the firmware is the same for all countries you can download it here too. Instructions in English. http://www.sony-asia.com/support/download/...site=hp_en_AP_i
  8. Just updated my A808 to the latest firmware 1.03 and was hoping for the album change to work beside from the mentioned resolved symptoms of fw 1.03 "The playback occasionally breaks for a moment at five or six seconds after the start of the playback." Results: NOPE DOESN'T WORK.
  9. I don't think you have to convert your music to Atrac in order to use the player intelligent function because my A808 contains MP3 only. However your MP3's or Atrac files must have some sort of metatag with year released dates, Genre, etc., for the intelligent feature to work. Follow the attached screen shot to enable Advance Mode in Library.
  10. That's very typical of a Sony staff product knowledge but I look forward to their findings. I still personally think a minor firmware update to the current 1.02 will fixed this.
  11. Another way that's if you don't convert to Atrac is to embed the cover art in the MP3 meta tag. I use 200x200 pixels image for covert art and use Mp3tag to embed them, works all the time for me. Oh and one more thing do small transfers and not larger batch transfer in SonicStage.
  12. Indeed Advance Mode has to be enabled first before any transfer is made. The A808 will kind of reset its internal setting to Advanced Library mode. Transfer Mode Setting > Advanced button

    The screen size is 2.4" inch and has the same 320x240 resolution. I'm sure you can import this model and use SS 4.3CP minus the TV won't work. Does anyone knows if mobile digital TV in Japan is free to air or subscription based?
  14. According to the sonystyle.co.uk the pink and white A818's are shipping and the black A818 are being re-stocked. https://shop.sonystyle-europe.com/SonyStyle...002BC29B85)/.do
  15. If you can flip albums on your 706 but not on the A808. Just hope the next firmware update can correct this on the A808 and just this! Because I still love the ATRAC codec and the on-the-fly bookmarking, which the later series doesn't have. dutchtrance Offers expires on 30th Sept 07 and is subjected to availability. So if you're instrested in getting an A80x you better call around UK Sony Centre's for stocks.
