    Hi there,

    I Bought my first macbook recently, so still figuring everything out :)
    But a big downer is that I can't find any software for my Sony Walkman NW-A1000 on the Sony website :mad:

    Any of you happen to know unofficial software or anything like that?

    i happen to have a sony w200i, don't need any software to exchange file just connected it to the computer through the usb cable and it will appear on your desktop just as a flash memory would appear, one for your phone memory and one for your phone memory card

    He has a sony mp3 not a phone. All sony mp3(expect for one or two models that are suppose to come out) require you to use Sony Connect Software. Best place to get some assistance would be DAPreview.com.

    My suggestion would be to run VMware Fusion or Parallels with Windows XP to get SonicStage or Connect running on your Mac. I don't think Sony will ever produce Mac software given the iPod. You may be able to get MP3Manager to run under Crossover.

    I can't speak for your particular one, but my old Walkman (I can't remember the model number) worked with iTunes. Have you tried it?

    The biggest "gotcha" was needing to use MP3, not AAC.

    I have this MP3 player, and if I want to update it, I either use Boot Camp or Parallels. There's no Mac software unfortunately. :(
