Sony's Reply to the End Search Petition

July 19, 2000

Dear Mr. Woudenberg:

Thank you for your patience regarding your letter of May 26, 2000. We sincerely
appreciate your support of Sony products.

Your suggestion on Sony Portable MiniDisc Recorders has been forwarded to our
relevant division as our important customers's valuable advice.

They have already started studying possible countermeasures to satisfy those who
utilize the end search and those who do not, since we are responsible for the
customer who has become accustomed to use the end search as well.

As I am sure you will understand, we are not in a position to announce the future
product planning.

Thank you for your writing and for your interest in our products.

Sincerely yours,


Yuriko Tauchi
International Customer Relations
Sony Corporation
