That's the old memory-stick based players. Can;t remember the model number, but it's supposed to allow users to use Memory Sticks as storage (from what I can remember).

It's a sony walkman thinger.

Becareful with it, read up about supported formats because SONY is really particular about those things.

You have to use their software? Yes, being careful with that, would be a good idea after Sony got caught suruptitiously installing root kits on people's comps :eek: Check that there software, very carefully, just to make sure there aren't any unpleasent surprises...

I can get you the model no later today if you're still interested. I'd even offer to sell mine to you, but I don't have the CD that comes with OpenMG anymore. OpenMG is **** anyway, it makes you convert your mp3s into ATRAC3 format which causes them to lose quality, and not to mention that ATRAC3 is a crappy format.

But seriously, stay away from Sony, and that player is literally 6+ years old.

Card based players aren't that great because well the cards are really expensive. You are better off getting a USB-key type player.

Nah the rootkit was only on their newer software. OpenMG is really old. You shouldn't have a problem.

a rootkit kind of leaves a backdoor open so a person can login through telnet,radmin,vnc stuff to check/watch/modify files. Think of it as those old school trojan programs where you run an infected exe and you are now open. Its easy way to "hack" and what a lot of script kiddies use because they don't want to actually learn.
