not a star, but I think good move for Hi-MD .. something I am not sure how to deal with the following:

As for correspondence OS Windows 98 SE/Me/2000/XP and Mac OS after the 9.0.4 and the Mac OS X 10.0.4.

Finally OS Mac!?!?  Are you (indeego) sure?

I am everything but sure unsure.gif - maybe they are talking about the mass-storage-format ..

I think the babelfish-translating is inaccurate .. feel free to get a proper translation wink.gif

^ USB mass storage works on the mac & most linux distros, thus making it far more likely the data mode is just the standard allready on himds.

after all if they brought out mac support for audio transferring i'd doubt it would be so under the radar .

ahh! i just read about that in gizmodo.com minutes ago!

here's the link to the post: http://www.gizmodo.com/gadgets/portable-me...ayer-039701.php.

"Speaking of Hi-MD, it looks like Sony has whored technology out to Buffalo. For 27,270 yen, Buffalo’s “MD-HUSB” drive provides the same data storage functionality as the “PIT-IN” we just got through talking about, but will also act as a portable audio player. It supports MP3, WAV, ATRAC3, ATRAC3plus, and perhaps best of all, doesn’t require you to use Sony’s often-criticized SonicStage software to transfer files. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say Hi-MD will emerge as a popular format (but honestly, I do know better). A couple things to hate about the MD-HUSB are its crappy plastic design and depth of 29mm (about 1.14 inches). "


the buffalo player doesn't require SonicStage?


uhh, and the pit-in thing. i read about it also just an hour ago on engadget.com.

the url to the post is: http://www.engadget.com/entry/1234000383040022/

"We all like to think MD is dead on this side of the planet, but Sony’s still holding stalwartly to pressing the medium in their homeland, and PIT-IN’s the name of their latest format gimmick (which we totally should have seen come out forever ago). Basically it completely forgoes the whole music thing and just uses that USB 1.1 connection to turn standard and Hi-MD media into, you guessed it, straight external data storage (of 305MB and 1GB, that is). And yeah, it looks like you still have to use SonicStage."
