I've seen that many times, but the program always seems to install. You may have tried to install more than once, but if not, it's worth trying a few times before giving in and contacting Sony.
Hope someone can come up with a solution for you.
Best of Luck
While running the installation CD for my Sony MZ NH 600 minidisc recorder, I'm told that the software, generic volume, has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify compatibility with XP and that it is unwise to continue, then it hangs. I've never encountered this before - what can I do?
