    Calling: Eclipse owners w/ magic gate/memory stick

    To start off list the memory stick compatible unit that you have for reference...I have the CD8445

    The question
    My manual says that I can stick a CD in and rip it to the memory stick as ATRAC3 files and I can play them from the deck. The directions seem easy but I cant seem to get it to work. Has anyone gotten this to work and can walk me through it?
    Now I know that the unit only can use a 128mb stick and that MP3's dont work on it but I've got a 32mb stick that I was trying to get it to work on and it doesn't workout for me. I always get to that spot when it says..."Record 1 track" or "all" and when i try to select All....nothing happens

    What am I doing wrong

    Maybe all the songs dont fit on your 32 MB memory stick, cuz most CDs are what 700 MB...

    Its a good thought but I tried recording a single track and that didn't work either. I really want to get this to work. I have a CD that I always have on my MP3 disc and it would be nice to rip it once onto the Mem stick and then I wouldnt have to keep adding it to a CD every time I burn a new disc...

    PS: If you rip a CD even at 192kbps its only about 70mb

    Re: Calling: Eclipse owners w/ magic gate/memory stick

    is it regular atrac3?

    because atrac3 plus is not compatible

    also, I know with the CD7k it only allows certain memory sticks to be used for music playback (blue or while Memory Stick Duo's is what it says in the online manual)

    not sure if it's the same with yours though
