Was dismayed to find that neither of the Ipod devices in our home would work in the USB port provided.
Apparently the software doesn't work unless the external device uses flash drives rather than a standard drive.

    Comments about Sony Black 5-Disc CD Changer:

    This piece does lots of great tricks -- sound out, sound "in" to portable format, random/shuffle option. Setup is easy; the only minor complaint is that you have to use the remote to activate the "random" function, and if you've installed the equipment low on your shelves, it's hard to see the control panel. I'm over it -- great versatility for the price!

    purchased at the store where, as always, service was perfect.

          Comments about Sony Black 5-Disc CD Changer:

          Like many others, it seems, I was replacing an old, dying CD changer (also a Sony). If you haven't learned already, these are becoming dinosaurs. This works great, essentially like the old one at its best. But there was an issue with making the "Shuffle" function work. I even had an online chat with Sony Tech Support and was about to return it, when I solved the mystery. The Shuffle function ONLY works AFTER you press the "Stop" button (marked with the solid square). The Instructions do NOT sat that, and even the Tech guy didn't know.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Really excellent service. Ordered late on a Monday, with standard shipping. Arrived Friday afternoon. When I thought I was returning it, getting a free shipping label was simple with the very helpful staff. Can't recommend these folks highly enough.

            I plan on using it with my other stereo components to fill out my audio unit. This unit will allow me several (5) disc's to choose from without having to get up and change out one for one. So far, I have not come up with anything that would cause me concern witht he disc changer.

              We bought this to replace a twenty-year-old Sony 5-Disc changer which finally died. This new unit provides much improved sound. But the plastic disc-changing mechanism is of a cheaper construction and is much noisier than the older unit.
