Okay i really like my X5, but i find i really dont need a lot of features it offers, im thinking about trading for an HD-3 and having an extra 100$ to play with. How is the latest sonic stage? And can i just pop my mp3 collection into it and load them on? Or do i have to recode them as atrac? Thanks for the help guys.

Is there no alternative? no one has made a program that can just drag and drop to the HD-3?

the HD3 and HD5 both have native support for MP3. you have to use sonicstage and I don't think there are any other programs that work with it

You can use the Sony MusicMove software with it too, according to Ishiyoshi over at minidisc.org...anyway, you can download that from sony's support site.

Its for the people that have bad luck with SS as it can be a buggy program for some. I use SS when I have a batch of songs I am going to transfer, but when I have just a couple I use Vaio music transfer since its way faster.

ive used sonicstage on 2 computers, one a sony vaio and one a dell xps. the vaio was used with a minidisc player (wasnt a huge fan of minidisc players) and the xps is being used with my HD-3. Sonicstage isnt completely bad, its just not an enjoyable experience. SS is rather slow, it has counterintuitive library browsing methods (artist lookup by clicking on a letter) and making a playlist is nearly impossible. Vaio Music Transfer is a magical program in comparison to SS, just drag and drop, thats it it even does artist info and everything very well. It transfers songs slower than SS, so the majority of your library should be done through SS and then new cds can be added through Vaio Transfer.
