Two copyright protection technologies* “OpenMG” and “MagicGate” allow you to enjoy digital
music, while maintaining the copyrights of its holders.
The OpenMG compliant software “OpenMG Jukebox,” which is supplied with your Memory

On “MagicGate Memory Stick”
What is a “Memory Stick”?
“Memory Stick” is a new compact, portable and versatile Integrated Circuit recording medium
with a data capacity that exceeds a floppy disk. “Memory Stick” is specially designed for
exchanging and sharing digital data among “Memory Stick” compatible products. Because it is
removable, the “Memory Stick” can also be used for external data storage.
Types of “Memory Stick”
There are two types of “Memory Stick”:
- “MagicGate Memory Stick” that is equipped with “MagicGate” copyright protection
technology.
- “Memory Stick” that is not equipped with “MagicGate” copyright protection technology.

Use a “MagicGate Memory Stick” with this player.
A 64-MB “MagicGate Memory Stick” is supplied with this product.
When you purchase a spare “Memory Stick” for your Memory Stick Walkman, be sure to ask for
a “MagicGate Memory Stick,” which is distinguished by the
logo.

Cannot be used
What is “MagicGate”?
“MagicGate” is a copyright protection technology for “MagicGate Memory Stick” and compliant
products, such as Memory Stick Walkman. Authentication ensures that protected content is
transferred only between compliant devices and “MagicGate Memory Stick,” and that protected
content is recorded and transferred in an encrypted format to prevent unauthorized copying or
playback.
Notes on use
To avoid damaging data, do not
– release the “Memory Stick” or unplug the AC power adaptor during reading or writing of data.
– use the “Memory Stick” in a location subject to static electricity or electric noise.
On formatting the “Memory Stick”

Preventing hearing damage
Avoid using headphones at high volume.
Hearing experts advise against continuous,
loud and extended play. If you experience a
ringing in your ears, reduce the volume or
discontinue use.
• Clean the player casing with a soft cloth
slightly moistened with water or a mild
detergent solution. Do not use any type of
abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent
such as alcohol or benzene as it may mar the
finish of the casing.
• Clean the headphones plug and extension
cord plug periodically.
If you have any questions or problems
concerning your Memory Stick Walkman,
please consult your nearest Sony dealer. (If
trouble occurred when the “Memory Stick”
was in the player, we recommend that the
“Memory Stick” be left in the player when
you consult your Sony dealer so that the
cause of trouble may be better understood.)

cycling, or operating any motorized vehicle.
It may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in
many areas. It can also be potentially
dangerous to play your player at high
volume while walking, especially at
pedestrian crossings. You should exercise
extreme caution or discontinue use in
potentially hazardous situations.

Glossary
MagicGate
Copyright protection technology that consists of authentication and encryption technology.
Authentication ensures that protected content is transferred only between compliant devices and
media, and that protected content is recorded and transferred in an encrypted format to prevent
unauthorized copying or playback.
Note
is terminology denoting the copyright protection system developed by Sony. It does not
guarantee conversion among other media.
“MagicGate Memory Stick”
A compact Integrated Circuit recording medium “Memory Stick” equipped with “MagicGate”
copyright protection technology.
“Memory Stick”
“Memory Stick” is a portable and compact Integrated Circuit recording medium. There are two
types of “Memory Stick”: “MagicGate Memory Stick” equipped with “MagicGate” copyright
protection technology and a normal “Memory Stick” not equipped with the copyright protection
technology. You can record image files, audio files, and sound files using “Memory Stick”
compatible audio visual devices, or record data from the computer. Data with different formats
can be stored in the same “Memory Stick.” (Please refer to the instruction manuals that come with
the devices to check which format the equipment is able to read.)
For example, you can store image files in the space available on “MagicGate Memory Stick” using
the respective equipment even if there are already audio files in “MagicGate Memory Stick.”
OpenMG
Copyright protection technology that securely manages music content from the EMD/Audio CD
on a personal computer. Application software that is installed on the computer encrypts the
digital music content when recording on the hard drive. This allows you to enjoy music content
on the computer, but prevents unauthorized transmission of this content across a network (or
elsewhere). This PC copyright protection complies with “MagicGate,” and allows you to transfer
digital music content from a PC’s hard drive to a compliant device.
ATRAC3 (Adaptive Transform Acoustic Coding 3)
ATRAC3 is a sound compression technology based on “ATRAC3,” a sound compression
technology used for the Mini Disc, with the addition of a new technology to increase the
compression rate (by approximately 1/10).
SDMI (Secure Digital Music Initiative)
A forum that consists of over 130 companies in the fields of recorded audio content, computers
and consumer electronics, for the purpose of developing an integrated method of copyright
protection technology that can be used worldwide.
SDMI is working to create a framework for preventing improper usage of audio files and to
promote legal music distribution services. The copyright protection technologies “OpenMG” and
“Magic Gate” are based upon the SDMI standard.

Check-In / Check-Out
Check-Out is to transfer music files managed on a personal computer by an OpenMG-compliant
software to a portable player (such as Memory Stick Walkman). Returning the Checked-Out
music files back to that computer is to Check-In. (You cannot move a Checked-Out audio data to
another computer.)
You can also Check-Out a music file, Check it back In, and then Check it Out again.
The SDMI rules provide that up to four copies of a music file can be created unless a special
condition for usage is set. Thus, unless a special restriction exists while one copy is saved in the
computer, the other three can be Checked-Out to the Portable Players.
MP3
Abbreviation for MPEG-1 Audio Layer3. A standard for audio data compression determined by
the Motion Picture Experts Group, which is an ISO (International Organization for
Standardization) working group.
It enables compression of audio data to about 1/10 of the data size of a standard compact disc.
Since the MP3 encoding algorithm is disclosed, there are various encoders/decoders compliant
with this standard, including freeware that is available for no charge. Thus, the MP3 standard is
widely used in the computer field.
Bit rate
Quantity, per second, of information. The unit is bps (bit per second). You can choose from
132kbps/105kbps/66kbps when recording a compact disc or converting an MP3/WAV file to an
ATRAC3 file. For example, 105kbps means there are 105000 bits of information per second being
transferred. Bigger the number, larger is the information. When comparing audio files of the
same format, you can enjoy a better sound quality when recorded at 132kbps than at 105kbps,
also better at 103kbps than at 66kbps. (Audio files cannot be compared if of different format)

Restrictions on copyright protection by
OpenMG
This product (NW-MS7) features OpenMG, a copyright protection technology developed by Sony
to protect music copyrights.
OpenMG uses a high-level cryptographic technology to protect music contents with computers.
Users should be notified of the restrictions mentioned below.
1. This product can only be used with a computer on which the supplied OpenMG Jukebox software has been
installed.
2. Music recorded on the hard disk using the OpenMG Jukebox software cannot be played if copied onto other
computers.
3. Music contents Checked-Out from a computer cannot be played if copied onto other computers.
4. Music contents Checked-Out from a computer must be Checked-In to the same computer. You cannot CheckIn to other computers.
5. Installation of the same OpenMG Jukebox software onto other computers is not permitted.
6. Usage Rules for using music
If a Usage Rule is included in the music by way of the copyright holder or the distributor, operation will be
restricted to use permitted by the Usage Rule. For music, such as compact discs, that does not contain a Usage
Rule, the Default Usage Rule of SDMI will be followed. This Default Usage Rule states that one file can be
Checked-Out up to three times only.
7. On music contents that are not compatible with the OpenMG Jukebox software
• Under the supervision of SDMI, this software prohibits recording of music with a copy prohibition signal.
• Some music recorded with DVD players may detect copy prohibition signals when handled with the
OpenMG Jukebox. The user may be notified of such prohibitions.
8. Upgrading the supplied OpenMG Jukebox
This software was developed in accordance with the current arrangement between Sony and SDMI. If this
arrangement is modified in the future, some of the software functions may become unavailable. Sony may offer
an upgrade kit in this case at additional user expense.
