SonicStage 4.3 with Windows Vista Compatibility Has Arrived!

SonicStage 4.3

As promised, Sony has released a new version of SonicStage with full Microsoft Windows Vista compatibility. The new update naturally is significant for those with plans to upgrade or already have upgraded their system with Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows Vista (Windows Vista Home Basic, Windows Vista Home Premium, Windows Vista Business and Windows Vista Ultimate).

In addition, a Windows Vista Compatible Driver for NetMD and Hi-MD (*64 bit version is not supported) has been made available and it can be acquired from our download section of the forum or officially from Sony. Applicable models include: MZ-NH1, MZ-NH3, MZ-NH600, MZ-NH600D, MZ-NH700, MZ-NH900, MZ-NHF800, MZ-RH1, MZ-RH10, MZ-RH710, MZ-RH910, MZ-N1, MZ-N10, MZ-N505, MZ-N510, MZ-N707, MZ-N710, MZ-N920, MZ-N910, MZ-NF610 and MZ-S1.

It is also important to note that MD Simple Burner along with CONNECT Player, WAV Conversion Tool and MP3 File Manager will not be supported under Windows Vista. Accordingly, there will be no further updates for the aforementioned software. Henceforward, Sony’s music management software for its Walkman devices will be just SonicStage 4.3 under Vista environment.

And now, without further ado, Sony Insider presents SonicStage 4.3:

    Have downloaded SonicStage 4.3 with apparent success – but as soon as I connect my NW A3000 a box opens up saying SonicStage has stopped working, there is an OK button, press that and the program shuts down! Any help?

    I have clicked on the link to download the new sonicstage for windows vista, but it never works and says that the webpage is not found. Are you having issues with it or is it my computer? Is there another link to download the software

    The link doesn’t work, but who cares as the software doesn’t either. Sony has dropped the ball on this one, and even the shame of attaching their name to absolute crap doesn’t seem to encourage them to do better.

    Lame.

    I guess the problem is the sonic stage software, i already tried it with my old xp-system, same situation – nothing works!!!
    I hope Sony will do a new version, that really does what we expect – run! But maybe they are not interested any longer to support their “old” MD-Technology? Sad about this, it was the best audio-format ever…

    I am having the same problems as above. I have had my MD player for years. I have Never been able to get my music from the MD to the Computer. I bought my MD for recording my band LIVE. How ever Now I have alot of music that all I can do is listen to. Thats not why I bought this player. I have over 300.00 inversted in a mini disc and 100.00 bucks in a Mic. Nothing that I can use if I can’t get the music from my MD to my computer.
    Zoom has elimited this problem. They offer a Zoom machine that can be used with a free Audicy program for mixing. I am giving up on the MD player. The Zoom machine is portable and has 4 mics. Sound quality is just as good as the MD Player. and its only $169.00
    I’m tired of messing with crap that I can’t get to work right.
    I have pirchased a whole new computer system just to get this C#$p to work cause I have a 64 bit. Come on give me something that works and NO MORE Excuses about why it doesn’t work.
    Thanks but I’m soon to give up on my MD PLayer and switch to the easy use ZOOM.

    I have one of the NW series, cant remember the exact make/model, but the issue lies with if im using V3.4 as a normal user it opens and runs sort of normally, but i can’t do much as im not running it as an administrator, but when i use it as an administrator it comes up with an error message- and wants to consolidate my music database. or something like that.
    The link doesn;t work, and the only computer in my house that works with the software has blown up. Is there anywhere else i can get the Vista upgrade?
    Or is it just better to cut my losses and by a freaking iPod?

      I have the exact problems with my NW-003F MP3 player. I have to somehow figure out how to be an administrator!!!

    So VISTA compatible Sonicstage 4.3 has arrived ?? none of the links on this page: http://www.sonyinsider.com/2007/02/15/sonicstag… go anywhere. I would appreciate a direct link to VISTA compatible Sonicstage, English version. I have a new VIAO VGN Z555DN and legacy MD and HD equipment complete with library. I really don't understand what SONY thinks “customer support” means…at least they should be able to provide me with a path OUT from the deadend they led me into! Thank you, herterj
