    Using a Sony mp3 Walkman with Mac OSX

    I have been given a Sony Walkman MP3 player, but no software. I can drag and drop tracks onto the player since it appears as a removable drive, but the player doesn't recognize the tracks as being there.

    Could you tell me what software I should use to transfer mp3 files to my Sony NW-A1000 walkman please?

    Thanks

    Windows. And Sony's walkman software only available for Windows. Sucks, but that's Sony for you. :/ I'd sell it and get an iPod nano instead.

    I also like to buy a Sony Network Walkman, but I want to be sure that the application you gave works. Please tell us if it does.

    Thanks

    It works for my SE mobile phone which is called "walkman" (w810i), but I don't think it handles ATRAC files or anything, it simply copies MP3 and AAC files to the right places. Look at the app to see what devices it supports. Maybe yours is listed?

    just to let you know, my brand new Sony NWZ-S638F works well with MacOS X 10.5. It's like an USB drive where i can put folders and subfolders with mp3 and m4a music. As soon as i disconnect the device, it creates some kind of directory index and i can play every track without problems.

    Sony mp3 player with MAC OSX

    Hello,
    I have the same problem, I recently switched to Mac. It only recognizes my Sony as a usb mass storage and that's ok, I can drag and drop. The problem is that when I connect it, it opens !photo. I close !photo and when I try to eject my mp3 player, !photo opens again. In the end, it won't eject properly because the !photo keeps on opening again. Is there anything I can do so that it doesn't open !photo?

    thank you

    Try opening your System Preferences, then CDs & DVDs pref pane. You should see one setting there that will open iPhoto - probably for pictures, so change that drop down to something else ("Ignore" should work fine)
    Serendipity is a lucky guess !
