SonicStage CP 4.0 Has Finally Arrived!!

 

SonicStage CP 4.0 has finally arrived! As mentioned in our previous report, the new SonicStage CP 4.0 includes full support for features exclusive to the WALKMAN A Series. Therefore, we were hoping Sony will finally make SonicStage a fully unicode software since it’s been tweaked to support the WALKMAN A Series. Unfortunately, unicode support has yet to be implemented with this update. On the bright side, it is already apparent that there is a substantial increase in the navigational speed, especially in previously laggy areas such as ‘My Library’. Accordingly, SonicStage CP 4.0 now supports the following WALKMAN devices:

  • Hi-MD Walkman
  • Net MD Walkman
  • NW-E series
  • NW-A series
  • NW-HD series
  • NW-M S Series
  • ATRAC CD Walkman

NEW FEATURES/IMPROVEMENTS:

  • Support for the Walkman A series. 
  • Recording and playback support for AAC format – encode and transfer 3GP/MP4/M4A at 80-320kbps.
  • AAC tunes in SonicStage CP can be transferred directly to the NW-A3000/A1200/A1000 without converting them to ATRAC format.
    Note:
    a. Firmware version 3.0 is required for this feature. –> click here for more details
    b. Copyright protected AAC files cannot be played back
  • Artist Link function is now available on SonicStage CP 4.0.  
  • Full support of Intelligent features exclusive to the Walkman A series.
  • Selectable background image.

    I bought an expensive mini disc player… I have bought literally hundreds of mini discs, and now that, as many other customers, I have windows 7 on my pc… sonic stage does NOT work. Have I spent so much money for nothing? Is that fair? or is it a scam?

      I have a sony mp3 player and docking station wwhich is also apparently obselete now I have windows 7!

      I bought it in preference to an ipod as it had much better reviews and has much better sound but at least apple keep their software updated.
      Come on Sony – get you a**e in gear!!

      You have to download the compatibility update for Windows 7 that adds Windows Vista compatibility mode, then set the installer and the application to run in compatibility mode for Windows Vista.

    The links to download SonicStage are all down. My Minidisc player is useless until I can download the software to copy music to it…

      Like I said . . . Sony has proved they have more important things to worry about than it’s customer

    Let’s see, hmmmmm It’s been about how long since this problem was identfied? I know for me that it has been since 11/10 when I replaced my computer. I would expect a company like Sony to have had this fixed in a few days. . . .I can only guess that they don’t care or would prefer their market share to go find an IPod, so sad that Sony doesn’t care. But then they already made the money, so just hang onto your ankles alittle longer, they say it only hurts the first 10 or so pokes

    Just installed on Windows 7 and my MP3 player works like it always did. No compatibility flags – just straight from the install. :)

      Do you work for Sony Support?

  • Davebeck

    SONY is a four letter word. Stay away from anything SONY.

    Spent days trying to get my sonicstage to work on a new windows 7 computer and still no luck. Sony sites are just usless you go round in circles or they are not available.

  • Peter fom UK

    I don’t think SONY reads this anymore

  • Gcjelley

    Eventually found a newer version of Sonicstage, through third party. and it is now working.
