I am a newbie to mp3 players, and recently bought the hd3. I like the idea of carrying around my cd collection and playing it through any stereo system. So far I have transfered 200 cds to the hd3 and found sonic stage reliable and simple to use. Admitably all I use it for is transfering cds to the player and a bit of editing. What problems are people having with the software, and what tasks are you trying to perform? a very happy hd3 owner.
