You may not need to use that software, plug the device in, wait a few seconds and then run this command at a terminal:
Code:
tail /var/log/messages
Post the output here, the device may be recognised as USB storage (as most MP3 players are), if so it's easy to get working

Well I have one of these players too. The problem is similar to that with iPods, to allow the device to search through songs by artist/genre etc there needs to be a database of all the songs, as for the device to go through all the ID3 tags would be too time/power consuming.

However, with the popularity of the iPod this database file has been figured out, allowing programs to write music to them. Problem is.. Sony's method seems more complicated and it is a less popular device so (as far as I know) there is no way to get music onto our Sony music players, without sonic stage.

I may be wrong here, if you know better please correct me (I would love to be able to take windows off that one box I still have it on, and copy music on via linux too!)

Hmmm, you could try running the program under Wine or Crossover Office.

Wine reports that It cannot install for this version of windows (I have switched it to all the different versions of windows in the winecfg) and tried editing the config file the sonicstage installer makes too

I don't have crossover office, so I'm not sure how to test.. If theres an evaluation version of crossover office I will give that a go later, and report back here. Hope theres some way this will work!
