I purchased this because I read that files no longer needed to be converted to the atrac format before transferring. So I downloaded the firmware updates and software updates and with sonicstage and vaio music transfer the files still appear as OMA(Atrac?) format. Am I missing something blindingly obvious here? How does everyone transfer their files and what file type are they once they are on the player? My firmware version is 3.0.0.C171F I have tried sonic stage 2.3 and 3 and ive used vaio music transfer 1.2. Any thoughts or ideas very much appreciated.
