    I got the NW-HD5 yesterday and began the mission of transferring my mp3s to it but am having problems with vbr mp3s. SonicStage only recognises them as 128kbps mp3s and doesn't convert them to my preferred format (ACTRAC 132kbps) when I transfer them to the unit.

    The problem seems that SonicStage looks at the first part of the mp3 (which is usually quiet and highly compressed) and grabs the first bitrate it sees, ignoring the average bitrate of the file.

    I tried using vbrfix but this didn't work - has anybody else encountered this and is there a workaround?
