how do i get blag 10k to recognise external media players such as minidisk players and mp3 players like windoze... or does anyone know a linux version of OpenMG (what sony uses to transfer and encode ATRAC 3 files to minidisk players)

What Sony model is it? Does it connect via USB, firewire, or what?

its a sony MZ -n505 connected using the USB... i pluged it in and the computer doesnt reconginse it or do anything as a matter of fact
Anyway, in sum, it looks like, with work, you could edit titles and things on the player, but you cannot download. Someone will have to crack the proprietary format first.
Sry for the bad news...proprietary formats suck.

... so i couldnt get the computer to think that it is a external hardrive or something like that??
thanks for all the info though.
and i found this site but couldnt get the program to start mabey you could have a look and see if you can get it to work.
I've spent a few weekends scouring forums and google as I also have a "netmd" minidisc player. At the moment there isn't a method for up/downloading via usb. Just like jebba said, the fileformat is closed. There are a few tools around to help you sniff the packets
whilst the device is using the usb cable. I think it's called usbsniffer. You may want to read the docs and forums at http://www.minidisc.org/ as I have.
They even have a link to the minidisc patents. Very complicated stuff but the patents explain exactly how they work ;). I think that the md may be superceeded by ipods and other portable hdd players. Shame though as I do like the device...
