Q1 Is there a limitation to transfer audio files to the Network Walkman?
A1 You can transfer up to 65,535 songs, and 4,096 groups to the built-in flash memory using SonicStage software. One group can contain up to 999 songs. However, not be transfer to the Network Walkman may not be possible if the built-in flash memory contains large size audio files, although the limitation is not exceeded. In such a case, delete unnecessary files, transfer audio files not listened to back to your computer, or change the bit rate of audio files. Bit rate indicates the data amount per second. The rate is reflected in bps (bits per second). If the bit rate is large, that means the sound quality is better though a large amount of information is used to play music. The Network Walkman is 64 kbps at factory setting. Click [Settings] on the SonicStage transfer screen to change the bit rate.
Q3 Can the Network Walkman record itself?
A3 The Network Walkman cannot record itself. Import desired audio files to the SonicStage software and transfer them to the Network Walkman using SonicStage.

If you do, the data being transferred may be destroyed. When you record an audio CD for the first time, [CD Drive Check] will be performed. Record the audio CD when it is completed. The number of transfers for an audio file may be limited for reasons of copyright.

Q6 Can I store non-audio data into the Network Walkman?
A6 You can transfer data from the hard disk of your computer to the built-in flash memory using Windows Explorer. The built-in flash memory is displayed in Windows Explorer as an external drive (for example: as the D drive). If you store a lot of non-audio data into the builtin flash memory, the space for audio data is reduced by the same amount.
Q7 Is there a power switch on the Network Walkman?
A7 There is no power switch on the Network Walkman. The display turns off automatically when the Network Walkman is not operated for a certain period to conserve power.

You cannot obtain the CD information from CDDB if the CD is not registered at CDDB.
