OpenMG Secure Module 4.0.00

What is OpenMG Secure Module?

OpenMG is a SDMI-compliant digital rights management system by Sony. It is designed for audio files in ATRAC3 format. The compliant software, e.g. Sony SonicStage, is usually capable of transcoding MP3 and wav files to OpenMG/ATRAC3. The file extensions OpenMG-encrypted files use are .omg and .oma. The compliant music organization systems, e.g. OpenMG Jukebox, work by "checking out" and "checking in" the files to/from portable players, keeping only one copy unlocked in order to hinder proliferation of copies. With some Sony portable audio players it is not possible to directly drag and drop the desired tracks to the device's visible directory structure; a considerably more cumbersome process using Sony's own or compatible software must be performed.
