Thumb Up Mac OS X and A865 - Some Tips

Hi. I just removed myself from the Ipod. I bought the Sony A865 16GB and I am very happy with it. I am using SnowLeopard 10.6.8. Sony's software is now drag and drop. I actually wanted to see if I could install it, but I was unable to(thank god). The drive will show up on your desktop, then click it and open the various files. Open your iTunes and drag your individual song files in and that's it!
NOTE: The player will mount on your desktop and probably open iPhoto as well.(really annoying!) Go into Mac Preferences---->CD/DVD and under "Insert a Picture CD, click 'Ignore'. This will prevent iPhoto from opening again.
NOTE 2: When you unmount the Sony, it will quickly mount again. When you are finished, unmount and quickly disconnect the USB from the computer when you see the Sony disappear from the desktop(about 1 second). You may see a warning message or you may not, depending on your timing, but don't worry about it. This is the only way to 'unmount' the player.
NOTE 3: If you want to sync iTunes, install the third party software 'iTunemywalkman'. I think it works on all the new Sony mp3 players as well as phones. It works well for me. Good luck!
