Sony Walkman NW-A806

Hi there;
Having just read the review on Sony's new Walkman in PC Advisor I invested in the 4gb version the NW-A806. What a brilliant piece of kit! but Oh Dear the Software packaged with it, SonicStage/Connect Music Store is I believe bugged.
Has anyone out there experienced the same problems that I have in trying to download music? Briefly, whenever I try, the programme hangs/freezes and the download stutters and stops for 5 to 10 minutes at a time until maybe an hour or so later it finally completes: I have a high-end PC with XP SP2, an excellent Broadband connection and F-Secure Antivirus/Firewall etc with all settings set to Normal. I have experienced these same problems during the day, early evening and late at night over a weekly period. I would be pleased to learn if I,m not alone with this situation.

Just read your message, as I was ploughing thru trying to find an ansa to my problem with Sonicstage. It's been an absolute nightmare, and Sony don't seem to accept that there is a problem. My PC froze for 6 hours last night after trying to download music. I have e-mailed Sony, but still waiting for response. Has anyone found an answer yet?

Hi gillyh
Welcome to the Sonicstage club! I am still getting the same problems with this software during music downloading, hanging/freezing etc: I received a very off-handed E-mail from Sony suggesting my Firewall was the problem and that it should be turned off! Yes right I dont think so! Without a doubt they have either a server or a software problem: regretfully they wont be getting anymore money from me until theyve sorted it out: I'll send them another E-mail with your info if thats OK with you. By the way what Firewall do you have on your PC? It might be relevant.
