"even makes Microsoft look good!"

July 07, 2009  |  By professionalamateur

 |  Version: Sony Connect (SonicStage) 3.3

Pros

Nothing - there really is nothing to like. It does everything badly.

Cons

Everything! Extremely unreliable, slow, shuts down with errors 99 times out of 100. Duplicates music.

Summary

Finally, I have given in and ordered an iPhone. This software is simply so bad, Sony should give up trying to improve it, it has become obvious they are incompetent. I loveD my Sony player, however, if i can not transfer music then it is useless. I have soldiered on for two years, fought Sony customer services (JOKE), I have been driven insane by this programme.

Features - mostly very good - IF THEY WORKED
Functionality - Excellent - IF IT WORKED

I have a house full of Sony equipment as I had always believed it was the best. Oh how one company can completely ignore the basics. As things need replacing, I shall be moving away from Sony, I simply do not need this grief with any other product.

"worked just fine for me"

January 01, 2009  |  By sad_sagi

 |  Version: Sony Connect (SonicStage) 3.3

Pros

quick download, it had to connect to download more of the software, which went at 900+k/s on cable, done pretty fast.
after the installation it was only a minute till the songs i wanted to add to my mp3 player were done (nw-a3000)

Cons

you have to restart your computer after installation.
purple ish background. i don't like purple.

Summary

it worked, and only took 5 minutes at most to get up and running, including all downloading and installing. getting music onto your local playlist is easy, but you have to do it without pretty pictures and fancy words via a simple file browser.
when i connected my mp3 player it warned that i can't transfer copy protected music onto it unless i a, delete all my music off of it, or b, find some way to authorize it. i had to do neither, my files transferred onto it just fine.

to put files onto your sony mp3 player, it works just fine

"Just want some help with a problem"

November 14, 2008  |  By baxter59

 |  Version: Sony Connect (SonicStage) 3.3

Pros

I like being able to seperate into playlists

Cons

The problem I'm having is described below.

Summary

I'm just looking for a little help. I bought my laptop with Sonic Stage five months ago and have been using it well until two weeks ago. Now when I go to use it a message pops up that the application has stopped working. Then another message pops up to have Microsoft go online to find the problem. I click on that, another pop up shows that it is checking, for about three seconds, and then it disappears. I downloaded a new version last week (9 nov 08) and the same thing happened. What do I do?

"UTTER GARBAGE"

November 12, 2008  |  By chedsorr

 |  Version: Sony Connect (SonicStage) 3.3

Pros

ummm.... none that i can think of

Cons

Crashes all the time
Bad layout
That its the only program you can use
The installer downloads the files from sony so you cant downgrade
Have to format if your players music was put on a diff version of the program

Summary

An mp3 player should be just that.. an MP3 player not what ever format this has to convert to.

My sister and dad have this mp3 player and its garbage the way you have to put music on it.

On my mp3 player all you do is plug it into the usb open the drive and and drag in your files and thats it done.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS PROGRAM AND GET A NEW MPĀ£ PLAYER!!!!!

"unmitigated cack"

October 06, 2008  |  By fattyboombatty63

 |  Version: Sony Connect (SonicStage) 3.3

Pros

nothing at all

Cons

1) Slow: Importing CDs into the library takes hours. Bizarrely, deleting files takes just as long.
2) Buggy: often crashes during import
3) Confusing: what does this mean? "Do you want to import the file after you copy the file to the hard disk"

Summary

why won't sony let us use drag-and-drop in explorer? well, it kind of does but you can't tell what the files are as this stupid software renames files added to the device
