Those really do exhibit the best build quality of the inexpensive Sonys, equivalent to the much newer and pricier UHP-H1, or for that matter current (incompatible) models like the UBP-X800m2.Thank you for your reply. My thinking is that I'd rather use a Sony workhorse for ripping purposes. I just checked and the 7200 is less than $100 on ebay which is fine by me.
Welcome to HFH!Wow! I'm so happy to have found this forum! Two years ago i got into the whole SACD and DSD thing i have not turned back since. A week ago I read at som other part of the internet about ripping SACD. Today I've got a SONY BDP-S590 but i either haven't gotten the right script on the flashdrive, or i have not managed to format the flashdrive corectly. I've read that on windows formating the flashdrive is problematic. If someone here has any help to offer or guidelines it would help me a ton.
That solved the problem! Thanks for the help Mikey! I didn't put the whole folder on the USB drive just the content inside it. That was my initial mistake. Since i didn't want to wait for a new flash drive, I googled around and a guy on youtube recomended a program that can format the flashdrive with MBR. Its called Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way Used it myself and works great.Welcome to HFH!
You should not have to reformat a new USB flash drive, they typically come from the factory formatted FAT32 with Master Boot Record (MBR) and can be left as is. An already used flash drive should also work provided no one has previously reformatted it, thats where the problems often occur, especially with the Windows Disk Manager as that sometimes results in a hidden primary partition.
If you have a flash drive that has never been reformatted, and is 32GB or less in capacity, chances are it will work just fine as is with no need to reformat it. If it is 64GB or larger in capacity, there is a chance it shipped from the factory formatted exFAT and that will not work in a Sony player, you would need to reformat it in that scenario.
With an S590, you can only use the Pioneer-Sony AutoScript version, the link for which is found on Page 2 of this thread. You need the entire folder called AutoScript on the flash drive. On Windows that will look something like this:

Welcome to HFH!Hello all!
There is only one version of SACDExtractGUI which is the Java-based graphical user interface that allows us to skip using a CLI or command line interface, however it is not the actual ripping engine, it merely instructs the ripping engine by point and click instead of the command line. You can download the SACDExtractGUI tool from Setmind's Github repository (to use SACDExtractGUI you must install the Java Runtime Environment as a prerequisite).What is the latest/greatest SACDExtractGUI version available out there for Windows? Looks like there are multiple versions available and I would like to be able to start ripping my discs using the best version available. Is setmind's version out-of-date?
Yes it is safe to update the firmware.I have a Sony S5100 which hasn't been used in ages. Is it safe to upgrade to the latest firmware available without breaking its ripping capability?
I really don't recall, that is a very old screen shot that's been reused and reposted many times over the years, and Windows is not my daily driver, I mostly use macOS, and Linux.Is that an unnamed USB drive?
