MP3 volume problem

Hello everyone,

I need some help. I recieved sony discman that plays mp3’s too recently as a gift. The problem is the volume. It’s incredibly low. Especially since my last discman was great and I could really turn the volume up. I have looked around the net for a program that would allow me to increase volume of the mp3 on a computer before I recorded to a cd and found mp3Gain however if I put volume up alot mp3’s are clipping and cannot be heard on discman okay.

I have tried searching more on a subject but haven’t found a solution. If anyone has advice on what to do or point me in the right direction I’d be very grateful.

Thanks for your help,
