Newbie (1/14)



  1. Bump, price reduced to $100
  2. Hello guys, I have a nw-a806 in very good condition here. It was used moderately for 6 months and in good condition overall. I will include all accessories with the player. I also have the official silicon case kit (including a white and black silicon case), which I will bundle in with the player for free. Asking for $120 along with shipping cost. Because I have no experience dealing with international buyers, I want to keep this sale within the USA only. I accept Paypal. Thanks! Here is a few images of the player and all accessories:
  3. DCIM did the trick, thanks
  4. Does anybody know the exact name of the picture folder so that the nw-a806 can recognize it. I first name the folder "Pictures", that doesn't work; "photo" and "photos"' don't work either. If anybody can lookup the official name of their picture folder, I'll be grateful.

    Sony S71x

    Also, if you look below, the new s71x can connect to an MD unit via a propriety connector also, pretty cool. So yeah, we're always screwed by Sony here at America. Oh well, maybe it's time for the yp-p2 for me from samsung.
  6. If somebody can look at the source code for nwz-a818, maybe they can modify the source code for nw-a808 to support mtp file transfer and drag-and-drop also. Anybody capable of doing that?
  7. According to this topic over at anythingbutipod.com, the A8XX series runs on linux 2.6.10 kernel derivative. Can anybody use the source code to modify the firmware to support WMP11? Just a thought. http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=19560 Found exact source code for nw-a8xx, here you go: http://www.sony.net/Products/Linux/Downloa...06_NW-A805.html OOh, even more interesting, source code for nwz-a818: http://www.sony.net/Products/Linux/Downloa...6_NWZ-A818.html Also, source code for firmware 1.02 on nw-a8xx: http://www.sony.net/Products/Linux/Downloa...5_20070829.html
  8. Workaround to install Applocale in Vista: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/05/26/w...-windows-vista/
  9. http://www.pmptoday.com/2007/08/08/sony-pm...rives-in-china/ Looks quite nice but the screen is kinda small.
  10. Well, I really have to consider the size of my player, which is not alot, so mp3 may be a little bit too big for my player. I tried to put some song into the player using 192kbps atrac3plus and it sounds pretty much the same as the mp3 version (to my non-audiophile ear of course ) Maybe when I upgrade to a higher capacity player then I'll use mp3. For now, I guess I have to stick to what I have. HD player is also a no go because I'm afraid I may drop it from a considerable height and damage the harddrive inside.
  11. Well, to save space on my nw-a806, I have decided to either go with 160kbps atrac3plus or 192kbps atrac3plus. Is there any noticeable different between listening to 160kbps atrac3plus and listening to 192kbps atrac3plus? Thanks in advance.
  12. Haha, that's true. The reason why I would use Atrac is to save space, otherwise, if I ever get my hand on an nw-a808, I would use AAC. thanks
  13. Assume that the bit rate is the same, does ATRAC3 plus or MP3 sound better on the nw-a806?
  14. the sale's off, I'll be keeping it since noone is interested. Thanks anyway guys.
  15. It's 300 euros which is about $450, correct me if i'm wrong, and I honestly think this is a bit too high compared to those like new players sold on ebay for around $200
