  1. Jim, you'd have to check if WMP adds the art to the ID3 tag or if it uses its own system. If not, you might have to use something like MediaMonkey or a similar program to add art to the ID3 tag itself.
  2. Before drag 'n drop, Sony players would put MP3/WMA/AAC into at .oma container, the same way that an Xvid/DivX file is in an .avi container. There's no transcoding go on, only Sony's DRM.
  3. Cool. Seems like a sensible upgrade. I hope that there's some sort of phone integration using the Bluetooth. Anyway, will be cool to see the pics.
  4. Nice design - I like it Sony and other large companies have their own lineshows in Feb or March so as not to get lost in the CES deluge. If Sony are to release anything new soon, we'll see it there. -Nav
  5. http://www.jp.playstation.com/store/mediamanager/index.html PSP and PS3 firmware updates... and now free software. Sony must be in the Christmas spirit or something! Great for us -Nav
  6. Yeah, I also just downloaded it out of curiosity. Was hoping it was going to work with the PSP... But after testing out the Zune software (also out of curiosity), I was really impressed. It's clean and fast and organized. I think if I need to replace my DAP, I'll wait until they release the Zune 80GB in Canada. -Nav
  7. @marftarf: Almost certainly no - MM doesn't support ATRAC and the hd5 needs things to be wrapped in an .oma container (oma is the extension of ATRAC files). -Nav
  8. Unfortunately, doesn't support the PSP. Was sorta' looking forward to being able to manage RSS feeds using this. Ah well. The odd thing about it is the way it organizes by file directory, rather than artist name etc. -Nav

    Any News?

    Yeah, I was wondering that too. It seems now that Sony fans finally have some decent players, we have less to complain about! Maybe when Media Manager comes out, we'll all be back griping about how it doesn't work... I would guess that Sony is going to hold off on releasing any new players for a while. Maybe middle of next year? -Nav
  10. So, does that mean that support for the iPod video format might come to the PSP? 'Cause a disparity exists in that regard between the PSP and the Walkmans right? Anyone? -Nav
  11. Does anyone know if the same Media Manager will be used with the PSP? -Nav
  12. If it's the newer NWA-A81x series, then I believe it will, as the files should be MP3s, WMAs or AACs. If it's the older NWA-80x series, then no, as the files on the player will be have an .oma extension, even if they're MP3s. -Nav
  13. http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/produc...uct.asp?pid=423 So... maybe the PSP/PS3 will also get FLAC support? If Sony are slowly dropping ATRAC in the US/Europe, then maybe they'll add FLAC to replace AAL. -Nav
  14. Yeah, I thought the whole thing was confusing too - maybe they didn't know about the price drop on the US site until later? The Zen thing is strange too. Ah well. -Nav
