    Hello All.

    First post here, and a bit of a query.

    I've just ordered a Sony NW-HD3 - and very much looking forward to it arriving next week. :)

    I've got loads of great music stored mini disc and Hi-MD - so sony were the obvious choice above an ipod...but....will I have any problems transferring my mini disc tracks (in atrac) onto the computer and then onto the NW-HD3. Will sonic stage cause any problems, and if so, how do I get around them????

    Atrac? No problems - I presume you know HD1/3/5 supports Atrac so why did you think there'd be a problem?

    minidisc? the old kind with analog record? might have to convert?

    Worried, because I am slightly confused by the blocks sony put in their software to stop people from transferring their (own :mad: ) music between devices they own. For example, on hi-md, you can only upload stuff recorded to the disc "live", or that had been originally transferred from the same computer to the disc, other stuff will get rejected.

    Are there any similar blocks with the hard disc walkman? I.e 1, will I be able to transfer tracks from mini disc to my computer, and then from my computer to the NW-HD3?

    Painful as it might be, if you could point me in the direction of how to do it I would be grateful. Thanks.

    (it's not this business of nero and simple burner is it???)

    I've been experimenting at home...getting increasingly frustrated with sonicstage.

    I've upgraded sonicstage to 3.1 - but now when I check in a track from my existing hi-md player to the computer, it transfers, but, and without warning, also seems to delete the songs at the same time!!! I don't understand why this is, and shouldnt' sony have some kind of ethical stance where they warn you that YOUR music will be deleted by THEIR software if you continue???

    Yes sorry Its a program called win nd it controls the network MD Player via the interface and outputs the sound via the Line out , you plug into your sound card and it re encodes the tracks as MP3 . As I said its very painful, and it costs 7 euro .......but it does stick its fingers up to the copy protection. I have the web address at home i'll post it tonight.
