Help A728 - an MTP or a UMS device?

I'm new to the MP3 "world", so please excuse what might be a daft question! We have an A728, and have tried connecting it via the USB port into our Samsung Home Cinema system, but it's not recognised at all.

We phoned Samsung, who asked if the Sony was an MTP device (won't work apparently!) or a UMS device (should work apparently!), and I'm not sure how to find out. If it is an MTP, can I change it to a UMS without losing the music on there?

Thanks!

It is MTP which isn't a problem for most as it supports drag and drop. Looking at my Sony, I see no way of changing it to UMS (some DAPs have this option).

It's not a true line-out, but perhaps your only option is to connect via the headphone jack.

Thanks for your reply. I feared as much with the MTP thing. I will try the headphone jack to line-in cable though. Worth a try!

Unless you buy the sony cradle/charger you have to use the headphone jack. The cradle has power and audio out.

Much better than the EX082- great bass and nice highs. Very warm sounding phones- I'm not sure of the difference to the EX300s other than the aluminium casing.
