and that there was no support for it anymore because of its age. there was one resource called knowledge base on sonys website but it didnt contain anything relevant. just wondering if anyone else has the program and figured something out.
Your system specs say you're using Windows 7, but you don't specify which version.
What you might want to try is Windows XP Mode
, which as far as I know, is available for Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions.
It worked for my old scanner on Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
The trouble was that Canon did not provide x64 drivers for my perfectly working scanner, so I loaded up Windows XP Mode, installed the XP driver
there, attached it using the Attach USB Device, and presto, I can use my scanner again.
With your Sony Music program, you might have some luck too?
