  1. If we are to use mp3 convertor to convert out atrac files to mp3 format, and store them on a portable hard drive My question, how long will it take to convert 5000 music files form mp3 to oma Would the backup from sonic stage be quicker or slower
  2. On occassions I have to format my harddrive, and having backed up my sonic stage files on mp3 players, will I still be able to transfer them back to my c:drive so basicly will I still be able to have all my files checked by sony authentication servers, and how long will this abe available for
  3. Sony must have realised that they were going to be droping the sonicstage software, and the atrac format for sometime, 1 or 2 years I would have to think. The release of the new mp3 models, and mp3 conversion tool, would have been in planning stage for at least a year, all of this is based on where I work, the company have to plan what on sales for the next year, and what stock is to be sold If this is the case, surely we have a case, that they have allowed mp3 players whcih use atrac format, and if no firmware or even support for atrac, they have failed there customers. If everyone knew at the time when they released the NW-A808, that in a couple of months sony would be no longer using atrac but allow mp3 files and drag and drop, would anyone have bought them, and what would it have done to there sales
  4. Why dont sony just, let a third party deal with the sonicstage/atrac, and let them develop it further. If there is any potential in atrac let someone else advance it further
  5. If Atrac is being dropped all together, what about all the cd players, mini hi fi's which also use Atrac, will this mean there will be no more production of any atrac products
  6. You could use tubehunter to download from youtube
  7. unable to place this in software update, sonicstage 4.3 due for release mid feb, link included sonistage 4.3
  8. If anyone is interested, found this at Argos Sony 2.1 Cradle Audio System
  9. ARe sony flash mp3 players limited to a certain size, I have the 4gb, and it is great, but cant get all my cd collection on to it. so is 6GB, 8Gb, 10Gb possible
  10. I take it that there will be soon an up date for SonicStage CP, if you check sonystyle web site, the software for 1NW-S700F/S600 is listed as SonicStage CP 4.1
  11. How long does the battery in the Nw-A1000/3000 last, will it eventually die and how long before you have to consider getting a new battery, and how much will it cost . So when the battery is nearly dead, what are the options open to everyone, should I just buy a new player, I suppose if it works out cheaper thats what I will do If it is around £70 for new battery aqnd what ever labour, what do you do,
  12. I would like to see a function like to be able to select next 3 tracks of artist while in all tracks shuffle. Example artist: Inxs program would shuffle 3 Inxs tracks then shufle another artist. It does not need to apply to artis it could be album, letter song title, or genre. I would like to see something added to the hardware, away to recharge your player by solar panel. This could be at the back of the player, and could give you extra playing time, if you dont have access to power points.
  13. I have eurpean adapter, but I am looking for a portable recharger which would work by connecting to ordinary batteries

    NW-A1000 battery ?

    Going on holiday in July, probably going to use my Sony player on flight and while I wait in airport. At sometime the battery in the unit is going to run out, no where to recharge on airplane, does anyone know if there are any accesories, which can act as addtional battery. I sure I have seen one advertised for the NW-HD5, so is ther anything similar for the NW-A1000
