Audi A8 vs Merc S500
Let's hope they have ATRAC thingies in'em...and a Sony Stamina battery life. The PSP could use some battery life also...
well I tried everything...it's no use. I HAVE TA use connect in the starting, and then after that everything works fine...

But to keep at home, definitely
Conroe vs FX

Isn't the best way just to format your player and re-transfer everything again?
Black anyday...always sophisticated.
Microsoft vs Sony (ya ya I know we're in a Sony forum, but I think I don't want Sony to make my OS...that would be the end of the world)
awwww man that's bad....
I just got my player and now they phase out atrac. Why do they not develop it and make it easily available for conversion a la WMA...Even a plugin in dbPowerAmp and a few Atrac plugins in winamp would do the trick...
Or will atrac go the way of the Dodo...
Hmmm.....yeah after sometime I started getting that type of thing.
So what I did was that I formatted my player and transferred everything through Connect. After that using either Sonicstage or Connect has no problems...

I got a E931 with my NW 608, I think it's a good one for stock atleast...I've not yet been lucky as u guys to get those cool phones (a la ex90, ex71 seinheisers etc etc...)
Photoshop vs 3D Studio Max

try flashing your player for one last time...if it doesn't work go to the nearest sony official, coz it's really dangerous when half flashing is done and the player isn't recognized. Use the search function, people have got similar errors

yeah it works, but essentially your A608 gets converted into an E-507 x 2, ie no artist link or favourite shuffle or atrac gapless playback...just good ol' drag n drop mp3 player...i don't know if the faourite 100 will work though...never tried

Are you tired of not being able to transfer playlists into your Flash Player without having multiple copies of the song?
Are you sick of figuring on how to make a song appear in multiple playlists?
Then this El Cheapo remedy is for you!!!!!
Jokes apart, this is the only way I've found by which I can actually make playlists of the Songs IN my 608 (Hard drive players may not apply)
We all know that Sonicstage and Connect well...umm...dont 'Connect' very well.
I thought about what I could do and then Eureka...
I installed Connect player with the 1.04 update (Note: Donot use CP without the 1.04 update, if you do you may feel suicide is a better option than CP)
After "connecting" my player I started CP and it recognized all songs in my player. So I quickly imported one file into its library, and made a playlist out of it and transferred it to my 608. After that all I did was drag-and-drop files from the player itself into the playlist, and it works! Even multiple playlists using the same file is working very very nicely...
Now no more problems for me having playlists on my player...
I now use these media players currently (No, It ain't funny )
Windows Media Player : To open any default files that I want to just play...
iTunes : After downloading files, I like the way it arranges the files Artist/Album folders-wise
SonicStage CP 4.0 : To transfer songs to my NW-A608, Artist Link (LOL) and get complete info
and now Connect Player : To make playlists for my player

Hey you said the A series has auto turn off, what about the E series?
Posted June 14, 2006
Well it happens even for mine.
The only chance that I have to use the playlist is to install Sony Connect.
How do you NW-A1000/3000 people create and transfer playlists, guys?

Don't know what sony is capable of doing in the software section, but they sure have the capability to make people cross their fingers.
You know feel a sense of acheivement for anything accomplished.
The best thing is that it couldn't get worse for us.
Just think about it, one day if some Apple programmer screws up iTunes then imagine what an uproar it would cause...people returning their ipods or something of that sort. All of 'em white sheep. While we here are so used to things...these are the things that separate a sheep from a music buff. We'll go to any lengths to get our music playing...
OMG, I'm almost praising sony!!!
I am able to make playlists in SonicStage CP 4.0
But here comes a problem (as usual Sony.like.no.other) When I try to transfer a playlist to my NW-A608 v2.01 --- it transfers the playlist alright, but then there's another copy of the song in my player. Whatever I try, there's always another copy of the same song in my walkman.
Connect was kind of cool you know, atleast I was able to make playlists on the 'man itself...
Is there any remedy to this or will I have to use both SonicStage and Connect(anyones nightmare come true).
Please F1 F1 F1 !!!!!
yes i have found a similar flaw.
in the curtain call album, it lists all of curtain call, demon days, and green day.
but the other albums are fine
Seriously WHY couldn't sony do that?
Keep up the good work man

Look at the graphs below,
even in the mp3 format they show no gaps...
beginning of faint and end of easier to run.
The surprising part is that some other songs did play gapless(or atleast i thought i heard them)...
Is it something with Audacity that it's taking the mp3 gaps for "granted" and not displaying, or is it true that the A608 is 'gapful'.
I just downloaded Audacity 1.2.4 and opened 2 high intensity transition files in it viz Easier to run (mp3) and Faint (mp3). Boy was I in for a surprise...
The transition is:
Easier to Run ==> Faint
The spectrum graph in both the files showed no blank spaces either in the end of the 1st file or at the starting of the second file, but still on my A608 v2.01 a small (i mean really small) gap IS inserted during playback.
The same thing happens even during the two songs Dont Get Lost in Heaven ==> Demon Days.
Is there something with Audacity or is the a608 not gapless...
Oh, and before someone tries to point out, I transcoded them into Atrac3Plus before playing them...
The only thing left to do is for me to rip the Gorillaz CD directly into A3P and then try. Then we'll isolate the problem to either the player or the file.
yes, and the firmware isn't a major change, just an addition.
So maybe that's why they didn't call it 3.0

And what do you see where?
Please explain clearly, with example if possible
ok so does that mean the colour i have is .... what?
I thought I have black, only it is extremely shiny and silvery.
It isn't the Silver edition either...
The main lead is that the earphones have a greyish blackish silverish blob, and in the photos with the blue a608, the earphones have a blue blob...
Isn't the a1000 a hard disk player, maybe that's why it has significantly lesser battery?
but the main advantage in the e005 is the direct usb plug, which is so damn convenient i guess...
what's the price difference bet. the e005 and a608 in your place?
If it isn't much I think you should treat yourself to a 3line display and longer battery life right?
