About this download

Benefits and improvements

This program updates the MC-P10 and NW-S4 device driver for SonicStage® version 1.5, SonicStage® version 1.0, and OpenMG™ Jukebox v2.2 applications to resolve the following issues:
  • A system error may occur when the MC-P10 or NW-S4 USB cable is connected and disconnected.
  • Playback stops when a song is played in the Network Walkman MC-P10 or NW-S4, because the song was registered in OpenMG™ Jukebox version 2.2 and SonicStage® in the Microsoft® Windows® XP Home Edition and Professional operating systems and the song data was improperly transmitted.
