    NWZ-W202 Help...

    The NWZ-W202 doesn't work with SonicStage (although the Japanese-only NWD-W202 does). AFAIK, it supports drag-and-drop, or may work with SONY Content Transfer software.
  2. But I was able to access My Settings just today with IE6, and enabled the RTE editor. After that the settings became totally inaccessible.
  3. Tried it with IE8. Still unable to go to My Settings. And the cyclic scrolling glitch (when after reaching the top of the page it starts to scroll again from the bottom) is really "nice". BTW, at least one icon is still missing: It had actually been missing long before the others disappeared.
  4. The forum is still giving me trouble. The fast reply form below stopped working completely (its height is less than one line, and it doesn't allow typing anything). And pressing the "Add Reply" or "Use Full Editor" button opens the following: As you can see, the typing area is overlaid with a nice set of toolbars, making the screen totally useless. The only way to post anything for me is from the Lo-Fi version (which is also glitchy, with some lines just a couple of pixels high). My configuration: Windows XP SP3, Internet Explorer 6.0 with all the latest updates, screen resolution 1280x800. EDIT. Enabling the RTE editor in my forum settings fixed the Add Reply window, but I am no longer able to go back to my settings. The new IP.Board engine is absolutely great!
  5. Here's the one for the Sony UK version 4.3 : http://sonicstage.update.sony.net/v4301/AE/download/installer/openmgsetup.zip After that you'll probably need to re-apply the patch: http://sonicstage.update.sony.net/v4301/AE/download/installer/omglp.zip But I'm still not sure whether it will work after removing the "Ultimate" 4.3 version, since you are actually downgrading OpenMG Secure Module from 5.0 to 4.7, and such downgrades almost always cause trouble.
  6. Looks like it's fixed. The only icon still not displayed is the "group_icon" for me. Its "src" parameter is not defined.
  7. Get a GP 14M145 gumstick (1450 mAh). It is better than the original NH-14WM. Beware of fakes!
  8. It tries to download all required images, but fails, so it starts again when the page is loaded next time.
  9. It's always better to use EAC for audio CD burning, as it is the only program that takes drive offsets into account, allowing to make exact copies of CDs.
  10. Same here - no graphics at all, except pictures loaded from other sites.
  11. The "Transfers are not allowed" message is frequently shown when SonicStage doesn't understand the file format. Either the required codecs are missing/damaged, or the MP3 files are non-standard.
  12. Then the unit should work "as is". Which version of SonicStage do you have? If it's a VAIO version, then it doesn't have NetMD drivers, and these should be downloaded and installed separately.
  13. From what I've seen in the Japanese SonicStage 4.4 installer, it actually runs the PxEngine 3.04.36a installation package (previous installers simply copied all required files themselves) with two command-line parameters: /PXHELPONVISTA /VIOLATEVISTALOGO - and it looks like these two parameters are still accepted by the 4.18.16a installation package. Maybe they may help installing PxEngine on Windows 7 (there are no special parameters for Windows 7, so we may assume that the Vista parameters can be used). But I'm still afraid that some internal SonicStage components required for CD burning are 32-bit only.
  14. The problem is, I'm not sure at all that SonicStage will be able to burn CDs from a 64-bit operating system.
  15. Welcome to the forums! Which operating system do you have? Is it a 64-bit version? If yes, then the only way to use a NetMD unit is to install a virtual 32-bit OS with USB support.
  16. Welcome to the forums! PxEngine 2.04.35a is quite old and definitely not compatible with Windows 7. Download the latest version from http://kb.roxio.com/content/000070GN
  17. The M10/M100 second generation alter egos are not only fully compatible with SonicStage 4.2 (and 4.3 "Ultimate"), but also provide compatibility with Mac.
  18. The deck driver is attached to this message. Deck_Driver.zip
  19. I'm also using Windows Media Player 9.0 under Windows XP SP3, with codecs updated to version 11.
  20. The magnificent http://www.sonymatome.com/sonicstage/index.php?Tips site contains patches for SonicStage 3.4 and 4.0 that re-enable selecting ATRAC3 66 and 105 kbit/s directly from the SonicStage bitrate selection list. The patches work only with their respective SS versions. And I am too lazy to create a patch for the "Ultimate" version. But those of you who may want to try it, may use any suitable hex-editor (e.g., XVI32) to open the Omgjbox.exe file, find the "81 FF D0 01 01 00 74 C6 81 FF 28 9A 01 00 74 BE" hex-string and replace it with "90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90". But I would still advise using the above REG files to select the bitrates, instead of hacking the program.
  21. 6 and 8 don't work for OMA at all - they are either unused or reserved for some other format types.
  22. I've uploaded a set of old "deck" drivers here: http://www.mediafire.com/?tz0wdghygum The drivers are really old and not certified for modern operating systems. They will probably work with 32-bit Windows 2000 and Windows XP, but I am not sure about later OSes.
  23. It's not as easy as it may seem. The HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Player\Extensions group contaings several slots (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 9) that have some functional meaning for the program (audio files, video files, streams, etc.). I.e., you can not arbitrarily add new slots or add extensions to existing ones. E.g., you can add OMA to slot 1, and it will work, but you'll need to do this through manual registry editing, since the slot may contain additional extensions added for various codecs (e.g., FLAC, APE, etc.), and if you use a REG file based on default formats + OMA, it will remove possible previously added extensions.
  24. It looks like the first two blocks in the REG file (that write to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer) are not needed. An updated REG file is attached to this message. The blocks won't do any harm, they are simply useless. Note. After entering all required OMA settings into the registry and enabling ATRAC in Windows Media Player, there is no way to fully remove this, since Windows Media Player creates a lot of additional registry settings for the new format. An OMA line is even added to the WIN.INI file. atrac.zip
  25. There is a wealth of information on required registry settings here: http://www.sonymatom.../index.php?Tips I've prepared a REG file to automatically enter all these settings into the registry, and attached it in a ZIP-file to this message. After importing it to the registry, start Windows Media Player, go to Tools>Options...>File Types, and you'll see an "ATRAC file (oma)" line there. Check its box and click OK, then OMA files will play in Windows Media Player similarly to MP3 and WMA. Note. Please use an updated file from Post #18 below to avoid entering unneded settings into the registry.
