ok, forgive me if at any point i appear to be utterly computer illiterate this is most likely to have been caused by the fact that i am in fact, mostly computer illiterate
My problem is this:
i recently bought a sony net md walkman model number mz-nf610. With this item came a software package called sonic stage. This software allows me to transfer music/mp3 files from my computer to my minidisc player. It also allows me to rip music from audio cd's.
Now when i attempt to run this software i always get the following message:
"Cannot find the database file or the database file is corrupted"
This problem then forces the program to shut down.
At first you may scream for me to go to sony helpdesk and see what they suggest... I did and they were about as much use as boobs on a fish.
The reason i suspect this has something to do with my operating system and something i am suspecting i may have done in the past to screw things up (what i dont know), is that another mp3 burning program i own (nero) also constantly alerts me of a problem with a corrupt or missing database file when i try to burn mp3's from an audio disc.
Now i am sure i read somewhere that upgrading my system can screw up settings that these programs rely on (maybe this elusive database file). I recently did upgrade my home edition of winxp to professional but at no point did i conciously alter any database files.
My question is this:
Does anyone have the slightest clue as to what is going on here and if so what can i do to mend the situation.
Any help offered will be greatly appreciated as i am currently fuming that i have just forked out over a hundred bucks for a piece of equipment that i am unable to use.
Thanks in advance and forgive my ignorance if it is too apparent.
