i recently changed my pc for a mac. my ipod nano works well (obviously), but my girlfriend's mp3 player (sony NW-E55) is not even recognized as an external usb device. is there a way to make it work or for now is this issue an idea for a new gift for her? (hooo, an iPod, thanks honey!)

iMac Intel Core Duo 2GHz   Mac OS X (10.4.8)

    Hello and Welcome to Apple Discussions.


    If the mp3 player won't mount on the desktop then it doesn't have USB Mass Storage (link is a PDF about USB Mass Storage) enabled in it's design (i.e. you need Sony's software to use it). I think you're out of luck unless you're prepared to install BootCamp and a copy of Windows on your iMac.

    ok, thanks for the answer. i don't think i'm going to install windows on my mac, that's the reason why i recently changed my computer. And, thinking about it, i prefer spending money for a new mp3 player for my girlfriend than spending money in a microsoft windows license.
