Glad to hear of your success. I'm considering buying one of the Sony MD players, but haven't found much Linux-related info on it. Does it just appear as an USB mass-storage device? If you transfer MP3s to it, does the unit actually recognize the tracks, or does some sort of index need to be created?

I haven't messed with any type of portable audio players under Linux, so please pardon my questions.

I thought about getting an IPod or portible mp3 player. I decided to go with the sony minidisk as well.
Though I havent started an attempt to getting it running in linux, I am very happy with it. Just as good, if not better than any mp3 player I have seen. Especially if your considering cost. I like having interchangable disks, versus cycling through menu's to get the songs i want.
Sound quality is as good as you want it to be, you can split songs (albums, genre's etc) into groups, and many other things.
Best gadget I have purchased in a looong time. Go for it.

Do you mean in Windows.... because I do not use the OpenMG software. to get music onto my player I use the Nero/Simple Burner approach.

If you are talking about a plugin for Linux..........then ???

Well you see I have a Net md n707 type r. And i've been clueless as to how to do the transfer in Linux. In windows i have to use the RealOne plugin that transfers and deletes as OpenMG doesn't work in win98se due to a M$ f'up. And I hate being in windows to download music as i hate kazaa and love linux and limewire so i want to be able to transfer to the Md without having to burn to cdrw and then load em into windows. Any Ideas?

I think the reason theres nothign for linux is that SONY made the attrac format to stop counterfeit so they arnt going to release the source in a hurry and i dont think they like linux either.
