I have a Sony HD1 which I haven't yet been able to use because of sonic stage (I think). When copying my CD's into sonic stage I get the following error message:"An error occurred while preparing to record the CD. Please try again". I have tried many different times with many different CD's to see if the CD was the problem but I get the same error message. The second problem is that I cannot copy any of my music on my computer to the HD1. The files are in MP3 format. It allows me to import them into 'My Library', but when I try to transfer them from 'My Library' to the HD1 I get the following error message: "An error occurred while transferring. Cannot convert the specified track. SonicStage does not support the file format of the track". I have tried changing the Transfer mode settings to all the different formats of Atrac3 types, with the hope that this would enable sonic stage to convert the MP3's into a Atrac3 format. However I still get the same error. I have tried both my original Sonic stage 2.1, and then tried 2.3 which I downloaded. If anyone has any suggestions then please say.
