Can the portable player play back AAC files?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

Your portable player can play back non-secure AAC files (files without DRM copy protection) only. Although it may be possible to transfer secured AAC files (files with DRM copy protection) to the player, they will not play back and will produce an error message. Purchased personal music files that can be burned to an audio CD can be imported into the Windows Media® Player software using the Rip function. Once they have been imported into the Windows Media Player software, they can be transferred to your Sony® portable audio player for your personal use.
