    I have a Sony dictaphone which is great. Sad thing is, they use a retarded format called MSV, which technically is very good, but the thing is, Mac is unable to open it.

    I tried with iTunes and Quicktime, none of them works. I searched google, but found only five year old forumposts about it. Hopefully, it's possible to download a codec plugin for Mac OSX Leopard. Can anyone help me out?

    The model is Sony IC Recorder iCD- MX20

    I believe that format is a proprietary windows only format.

    Already read about Switch. Word is that only the Windows version supports MSV format.

    I was kinda hoping that theres some scriptkiddies out there that has taken the time to make a formatplugin for this. I tried opening it with Adobe Media Encoder, which also didnt work.

    Theres no technical reason at all that my MacBook shouldn't be able to support this format.

    Bump! Just running into this problem today... any developments?

    I can't believe Sony is snubbing the Mac community so much... I'm beginning to hate them more and more!
