Use your Sony MP3 player with Linux – JSymphonic


If you’re a linux user, and own a Sony MP3 player, Sony couldnt care less about you. Even if you are a Windows user, the syncing software provided by sony (connect and sonicstage) are possibly the two worst pieces of software I have ever encountered – so I was overjoyed to discover this project.

JSymphonic is a Java program for synchronising and transferring music to and from Sony MP3 players. Being java based, it is platform independent, able to run on any machine that handles java. Supports generation 3 onwards, which covers almost everyone. If you havea sony player you NEED this. say goodbye to sonys awful software forever.
