  1. No I am English, most of the menus on the player you can figure out from the manual or from trial and error. The operation of the player is very easy especially if you have used another Sony player before (I also have the A808) - the menu structure is very similar. The hardest thing to figure out is all the settings menus, but once you have configured these you shouldn't have to change them too often. Drag and drop does work fine with audio and video, but you have to use the X-Application to transfer Atrac tracks. You can also use it to manage the some of the more advanced features like the lyrics lookup, converting various audio / video formats adding cover art, ripping cd's and managing your library in general. Again the software is only in Japanese but works fine on english Vista and and can actually co-exist with SS 4.3 on the same machine (but SS4.3 will not be able to transfer to the A847). A lot of the menu options are very similar to Sonic Stage and if you have used SS you will be able to pick this up pretty quickly.
  2. Well my black NW-A847 arrived from Japan earlier this week and it's really a nice piece of hardware, I've just started to play with it this afternoon and it's very nice to use. The X-Application software is still essentially Sonic Stage in some places underneath, but they have improved the performance quite a bit and made the user interface a lot smoother.
  3. NW-A847 just arrived...

  4. If you are using XP then the following topic should help: http://forums.sonyinsider.com/index.php?showtopic=14345. I am not 100% sure if it works on Vista.
  5. Can't believe it's taken me this long to get on the bandwagon, but I finally picked up a PS3 today. I went for the 120GB Slim, and even after just a few hours playing around I think this is such an amazing device. A breeze to setup, slick and a pleasure to use. I was also surprised how good the quality of the TV on demand here in the UK via the BBC IPlayer service is on this device. Having used the IPlayer on my phone and on the laptop, it looks so much better via the PS3 - pretty much the same as watching the original program via DVB-T.

  7. Very nice! - - What kind of flower is that?
  8. Welcome to the forums and congratulations on your new acquisition - . Stick around and hopefully you find this a useful resource and place to exchange ideas and meet some like minded people.

  10. You can use an external drive with SS - in fact this is what I use myself. You should be able to move the files from within the options; Tools => Options => Location to save imported files.. To quote the help I think when I orignally moved mine to an external drive I just copied everything across via explorer and re-imported but I didn't have a very large library then and I had to re-add some of the cover art.. Have a search using Sonic Stage +external drive, there are few topics on the forum already dicussing this. * Moved to Software section
  11. I had a look at the manual and have a feeling Avrin is right - the bookmark will only bookmark the entire track not a position within it.. At least that's what I understood from reading that page.. Maybe one of the NW-Axxx owners will prove me wrong - Ascariss?
  12. Thanks for the reminder Oz we probably need to edit the skins to script out the Ad's for VIP's & Premium members... I'll add it to the to-do list.
  13. What device is she using to listen to the files? The bookmark feature is a feature on quite a few audio devices, but it's difficult to say in your particular case without knowing the model.
  14. Looking at the requirements for V3.x it does say SP1 for Vista is required. I am running SP2 and it seems ok so far. Also which regional version of 2.3 did you have installed - US or UK and did you do an in-place upgrade of the same regional variant ie. v.3 US on top of 2.3 US?
  15. That's stange I have upgraded from version 2.x last week without any issue. What OS are you running on? The other thing you may want to try is adding the library application to the DEP exclusion list as I have had issues with previous version crashing on startup due to DEP. 3.x so far has been ok for me. I know some people however had have issues with syncing and the export of notes.
  16. I watched In The Loop on BD for the second time last night with some friends - absoulutely hilarious.
  17. I would take a look at this topic for how to completely remove Sonic Stage 3.0. Having done that I would reboot and re-install Version 4.3 from scratch. * Topic moved to Software section
  18. I think it's a bit of the best of both worlds - to keep the analogy going it's like moving to a new city with lots of new things to explore, and opportunities for meeting new people, whilst at the same time you can bring a lot of your old friends with you. After 4.5 years at MDCF I welcome the change.
  19. It looks pretty slick, especially the main index page. The SI logo looks nice in black & white too.
  20. We know what is missing, and Invision have been informed so it should be recoverable.

    Sony PRS-300/PRS-600

    What color did you get Dura? I think the screen on the 300 is very readable from what I have seen on the net, very like that of the 505, although I haven't seen the 300 up close yet. I think we should do some pictorials of the various readers, maybe you could help out?
  22. I'd like to second Chris' thoughts and it is great to see the forums in their new home and running under the new software. I think this has been a mammoth task the complexity of which should not be underestimated. It has been largely successful although of course there will still need to be some things that need ironing out. I noticed for example you may need to edit some of the custom fields in your profile if you previously had accounts at both MDCF / ALC and / or SI as some of the info may have been populated into the wrong section. Please report any quirks or issues to the admin team or reply to this thread, and let us know details of previous accounts so that these can be merged if required. Abby - I think some of the links in your sig may be in the topics that still need to be merged in from the old Hi-MD section. We'll see if we can get that back in the next day or so. Hang in there..
  23. Minidisc.org as far as I am aware is owned by Eric (the webmaster) and not Chris. Thus all the equipment browser and that stuff is technically a separate resource for which Eric is responsible. However I'm sure we can put a link on the SI home page and in the forum and as Abby said there will be a re-direct on the forums.minidisc.org subdomain.
