Hi,

I just sold my iPhone 5s and ordered the Xperia Z2 online.

Is the Walkman app able to play the iTunes m4a format and show the artist, song title, album name, artwork etc. I have over 4000 songs in my iTunes library. All my songs are DRM-free.

I would rather not covert these to mp3 as it would result is loss of sound quality.

Thanks

According to the White paper the Z2 is not able to play this format.

m4a (or aac) is obviously read by walkman. All my music is in m4a format

Yes, there're two methods do to it:
1- Menu: "download music infos" (it can be quite long)
or
2- Listen to an album, select "modifiy music infos" and select the image that is in the album folder.

This was my issue when switching from iPhone to Android as well. I went with Google Music All Access and uploaded all my songs and this way I can get whatever songs I want.
