Sonic Stage V1.5 and Sony Mini disk VS copywrite!!

I have a Sony mini disc which I recorded some lenthy meetings with via microphone. The software that came with this machine is Sonicstage V1.5 . It will not allow me to download the recordings from the USB craddle, sighting them as being copywrite protected (BS). If I were able to do this, the down load would take only minutes. But as the program does not allow this I have been using the "line in" through the sound card and "Audiograbber" to download and covert the recording to mp3. Some of the recordings are 2 -3 hours long. Very time intensive. Is there away around the copywrite block???

SonicStage is a horrible piece of software as I used it with Sony MP3 player. Tried a newer or older version of this software?

I believe this is the right link:

http://sonicstage.connect.com/SS-US.zip

Connect has since closed, though you can still download SonicStage CP 4.3 for a couple of months, so that you can still manage your ATRAC* files.

If nothing else, get this as it's the last release of the software, and is better - performance-wise - than previous releases.

From memory, NetMD units are incapable of uploading: pretty certain that only Hi-MD units can upload. Seeing as you're using such an old version of SonicStage, though, the new version may offer the capability.

If you decide (or if you have no choice) to record in real-time, be sure that you use optical, rather than RCA. That should hopefully ensure little-to-no degradation. Also, record in *.WAV at the highest possible settings (even if the frequencies have been butchered by the recorder).

Thanks for the info and advice, I'll have a go at getting the down loads. The NETMD I own will upload but it seems only if it has been downloader first. I shall persever. I'm not sure how record using the optical port and I only have a mic with a standard 1/8" stereo jack!!
