    I have never been sooooo desperate

    I posted a thread along these lines several months ago. As the issue is still a royal pain in my azz and has not been resolved, I'm reposting in the hopes that some newer members may have some insight or perhaps some older members have gained some knowledge....i don't know, i'm really reaching here.

    More than a year ago, I burned almost 200 CDs onto my computer using the very crappy and inferior (unknown to me at the time) Sony SonicStage music player. This took me a great deal of time and, having moved twice since then, I have lost most of the discs I burned since that time, and reburning is not an option in several instances.

    The problem is, after getting some virus some time ago, which may or may not be responsible, sonicstage simply stopped opening each and every track i burned. They still show up on my hard drive as existent and taking up space so they're there, but they REFUSE to open. When I try to open them with another player, it says it can not recognize the file (they are saved as .omg files) and refuses to play it. I can not change the properties to an mp3 in any way that i can tell. I've tried two or three converters with NO luck...as each crashes when trying to convert. I am pissed. Surely i'm not the only one with this problem, as I'm told OMG stands for "Oh My God"...as in, "oh my god, my music is gone".

    SOMEONE must know how to remedy this problem......for the love of god.

    What about re-installing SonicStage? It worked for me. There must have been a driver conflict causing the error on my PC...I re-installed it...everything worked again.

    I think OMG files can be played in the newest version of winamp, I'm not certain but if they can then you can convert them to wave files and re-encode them to mp3

    If that doesn't work then try downloading the newest version of that sony crap software and delete your old version. I've never dealt with that program sorry if that didn't help ya.

    WMP plays omg files too, but that's his problem; he says that when he tries to play them with players other than Sony, they won't play.

    I'd say delete (uninstall) that software and reinstall the new winamp, which should make all media files default-played by winamp.

    i have no idea if that'll do anything or not, but then reinstalling the Sony software may correct things.

    I don't know anything....my 8 track player never breaks down

    UPDATE:
    I just said 'screw it' and deleted not only sonic stage, but the entire folder containing all the CDs...spent a few hours on P2Ps and just pirated all my old music back save for a few of the 'hard to find' CDs that are pretty cheap on amazon, so I'll repurchase a few.

    There you go, just say 'screw it' although I would have chose the F-bomb. My other comp is a real piece and we had to reinstall windows on it cuz I was tryin to delete some $hit off it and deleted sumthin vital. I reely wanted to give it the ol' "Remington model 1100" virus.
