  1. I wonder if they will incorporate the atraclife forum and the minidisc forum into the new SonyInsider forum? (Sort of like a "legacy" section)
  2. Compare the ones you can see, and the ones you can't see in mp3tag. This has happened to me before, and I believe it is because sony players cannot display when it is ID3 v. 2.4, but displays perfectly when it is ID3 v. 2.3. Maybe in your case it might be something else, but make sure to compare the ones that work with the ones that don't work in mp3tag, and see if there is a difference between the versions of ID3. Hope that is useful.
  3. The FF is way faster than the E400/E500 series which were excrutiatingly slow (basically, ff at the same rate as the file normally plays). Unless you are dealing with 30 minute tracks, its not that slow, I am ok with it. I remember that the A600 (the one between the S700 and the E500) had an option in advanced options to accelerate the FF (up to 8x i believe), but this one does not.
  4. Just wondering, how much longer will atrac3 be supported in japanese walkman models?
  5. I'm sticking with atrac for any music which I import myself. Does anyone know how much longer atrac will be supported in Japan? Hopefully they will still have atrac3 support so we can just import from there if we still want to use it.
  6. Try draining it completely and then recharching to full, see if that makes a difference in the time calculation (it should be more accurate).

    Mp3 vs. ATRAC3

    I think if you have expensive canalphones, it is worth it to spend the time to choose the best format. However, if you download your music in mp3, it makes no sense at all to even think about this issue, as any conversion will lose quality. The only thing that will differ is ripping CDs, at which point you will want to find the best balance between sound quality and number of songs you can fit on your player at once. If you want to give up freedom, atrac3/atrac3plus is the best format in terms of balance, but if you want to use your files on other devices which don't support atrac3, then mp3 is most likely the best bet. Any other discussion of this issue is only based on personal preference.
  8. Does anyone know where I could buy this in Canada? (Or online somewhere?) Thanks.
  9. Hope it turns out well. My NW-E407 has been dropped in snow several times, dropped to the ground while running and soaked in hot tea. Still works like a charm.
  10. Nice phones for a budget model, but when will we get a decent high end stick player (something with noise cancelling and no video)?
  11. I think it has to do with the quality of the player... I know that my sony CD walkman did this (it was the cheapest model), but my NW-E407 does not do this.
  12. Definitely when I think of Bang and Olufsen I think of high price. They are known for their very nice aestehetic designs and premium price, I wouldn't expect your money's worth of sound quality of if that is what you are going for.
  13. Actually I changed my mind after reading about the headphone jack problem... Maybe I will end up getting one of the new A82x models which were just released.

    nw-a919 question

    Have you tried manually installing the drivers from the installation cd?
  15. Sonicstage is really not that bad... If you want, you can always use MP3FM to drag and drop. The only downside to MP3FM is that you can't play the tracks on your walkman from your computer.

    I HAVE to say this!

    What if they advertised this site in all of the new walkman player boxes? Then we'd get more users, and it would be worth Sony to sponsor it more heavily and provide more content for enthusiasts...
  17. Do you guys know if it possible to remove the connect store from sonicstage? I know that the old versions of the canadian sonicstage 4.x had no connect player, and it was lighter than the US version. Now that the connect store is closing down, and that sony will stop supporting sonicstage, is they probably won't be releasing a new version without it. So is there a way to remove it ourselves? Thanks in advance.

    I HAVE to say this!

    I think this forum is well established, just the updates have been lacking... If the people who are maintaining this site could delegate someone else to the site so that it can come back to life again it would be awesome.

    Defective NW-S706F

    This problem is under recall until 2013, so if you have any friends in Canada or USA, you can send it to them and they can send it to sony for you. This is the only thing I can think of... Good luck.
  20. I like the noise-cancelling and all... but is that player white or silver? It would have been better if they released a blue or silver one (non-limited) without the ugly orange logo right in the middle. That is what is killing the design imo for the moment. Also, when are they going to release something similar to the NW-S70x or NW-E4/5x? I like the perfume bottle design, more ergonomic than this rectangle slab. I want all the features without video?
  21. The new 16gb NW-A82x series just came out today in Europe: http://www.engadget.com/2008/02/19/sonys-n...ding-to-europe/
  22. I don't think we should be debating this any further, it is complete nonsense... I am quite sure what they are referring to is the .oma/.omg container which someone mentioned earlier.
  23. Is there any place that you can buy the north american version of this player? All the ebay auctions i've seen are for the japanese model (which I guess is still being sold in japan). Thanks.
