The songs are perhaps in the wrong format.  This player will not accept copy-protected iTunes (AAC) files.  Also, the license on your files may not permit transfer to mp3 players. Definitely check the bitrates on your files, b/c this Sony can only accept certain ranges of bit rate.
This is my general spiel about music formats, but note that your Sony does accept DRM-protected files with transfer rights, so not everything in the following blurb applies fully to you: All of these problems occur because the user is trying to download a song format that the player does not recognize. Every music file is in a certain format. The most common music file formats are Mp3, WMA, AAC (iTunes), WAV, RA, etc.  In addition, every file format type is in a certain bitrate, size, etc.  By far the most common issue is that the music file contains a license or copyright (especially with WMA or AAC file formats).  Each Mp3 player only recognizes a certain number of these formats. Every Mp3 Player is different. You will have to check your Mp3 player’s product specifications (specs) or user’s manual to find out which formats your particular Mp3 player recognizes. When you try to download or sync the wrong file format, you will get one of the errors that I mentioned above.   If you want to know what file type you have, then you must find the location of the individual music file on your computer, right click the title of the song, and select the option “Properties” from the menu.
Mp3 player product documentation is not straightforward.  If a player supports only non-protected WMA files, it will merely say that it supports WMA – it will not tell which type of WMA it supports.  A player that supports DRM-protected WMA’s will usually indicate such on the box (usually with a Windows Plays For Sure logo – which is actually an ironic misnomer).  DRM stands for Digital Rights Management, and it is a type of licensing system for WMA files.  It is used extensively by mp3 player music services such as Bearshare, LeapFrog, Napster, and others.  Not all DRM licenses are created equal – there are licenses with “play rights,” burn rights,” and “transfer rights.”  Play rights mean that you can only play the song on your PC – it will play fine on your computer, but it will not play in your mp3 player even though it appears to transfer.  Burn rights mean that the song can be burned to CD.  Transfer rights mean that the song can be transferred onto an mp3 player that supports DRM-protected files.  Then, there are unlimited licenses and limited licenses.  Limited licenses only allow you to play a song for a certain length of time. You would have to pay extra to continue using the song after that trial period is over – the time length ranges from a few days to several months or longer.

I want to add video songs via sonic stage but they are not added..


Hi,

The NWZ-S616F Walkman Player is not transferring the music using the SonicStage Software. Sony old Walkman player was using the SonicStage Software for transferring the files. You can use Windows Media Player 11 or higher, Media Manager for Walkman, Content Transfer Software or Windows Explorer for transferring the files to the Player.
Click here and select the operating System to download the Software for transferring the files.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Tip

CREATING AND TRANSFERRING MP3 MUSIC FILES


CREATING MP3 MUSIC FILES

1st - You need to convert your CDs to MP3 music files.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track.
There are also Freeware CD RIP programs on the Internet that embed the music title and album title automatically into the mp3 file.
OR
Download MP3 music files from the Internet, some sites will cost money to download these music files.

2nd - connect your MP3 player to your computer using the supplied USB cable. The computer will see this player as an external storage device. Just copy the MP3 music files from the computer's hard disk and paste these music files to the MP3 player.

I suggest you create a album/title folder for each CD so you can place the MP3 music files by that artist into that folder. Then copy these folders to your MP3 player and you will be able to select and play your MP3 music by selecting the album you wish to play.

To convert just about any audio file into your preferred format, download Free Audio Converter 2.3.2
http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/downloads/3249718/free-audio-converter-232/

NOTE - When the USB cable is connected to the computer, it will also charge the MP3 player's battery.

What driver do i use for my sony mp4 player... model number nwz-s616f.. please help me


Hi,
It is not required to install any Driver for connecting the Walkman Player to the Computer. The Driver for recognizing the Walkman Player as a MTP Device is already installed in the Computer. You can install the supplied Windows Media Player 11 Software for transferring the files to the Player. You can either Drag and Drop the files using the Windows Explorer to the MUSIC Folder which appears as a Removable Drive or can use the Windows Media Player 11 for transferring. If the Player is not recognized by the Computer, try connecting to different USB ports and try re-installing the USB Driver from the Device Manager.
Thank you for using FixYa!

DOWNLOADED THE SONGS/FILES ONTO MY DESKTOP AND I SEE THEM ON MY DESKTOP BUT MY DEVICE; MP3 PLAYER SAYS "FILE ERROR" WHAT DO I DO? MY DESKTOP IS WINDOWS 7 OR 8 AND ITS A DELL


Hello

Verify that the audio file format is compatible with your MP3 player if your player fails to recognize the transferred music.

Make sure you aren't transferring audio files that are DRM-encrypted, if your MP3 player displays an error message that reads "NO AUTHORITY" or "NO PERMISSIONS." It is likely that your license has expired or that you have obtained DRM protected music from an authorized source. If the file was purchased from a reputable source, contact them.

You should Reinstall your firmware if you're having issues with the functionality of your MP3 player,an outdated firmware can be the cause of the error

I dont know how to set up my walkman to put anything in it?


I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in transferring files to the Walkman Player. You can use the Windows Explorer to transfer files (music, images and videos) to the Walkman layer. Once you connect the Walkman Player to the Computer, it will display as an additional storage media under My Computer. Please follow the below steps to access the Walkman Player using Windows Explorer.
  • Click Start and then click My Computer .
  • In the My Computer window, under Other , double click the icon for your portable player.
  • In the My Computer\[Name of your portable player] window, double click Storage Media .
  1. Now, drag and drop the music files or folders into the MUSIC folder.
  2. Drag and drop video files or folders into the VIDEO folder.
  3. Drag and drop picture/image files or folders into the PICTURE or DCIM folder.
Now, the only thing you want to make sure is that you're transferring compatible files to the player to use in it. The video files should meet the following requirements.

MP3 is fine for audio and for images, jpeg would be good.
I hope the information helpful, if you require any additional help, please let me know.

Ok when you hook it up and it says MTP just push and hold the Play pause key till it says Usb then it should recognize it .....
now mine recognizes it on both usb and mtp i have win xp pro ...  If you do this and it doesnt work 
If you are using Windows XP or Vista, make sure that the player is in the Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) mode. This can be done by pressing the M button. This button is located on the top of your mp3 player. Open Windows Media Player 10 or 11 and follow the directions for transferring (synchronizing) music. If you have Windows Media Player 9 on your XP machine, upgrade to Windows Media Player 10 or 11. This can be done by visiting www.windowsmediaplayer.com.
If you are using Windows 98SE, Windows ME, or Windows 2000, you will only be able to transfer music using the USB transfer mode. Open Windows Media Player 9, and follow the directions for transferring (synchronizing) music.
If you have version 9 on Windows 98SE or Windows ME, you will need to visit the Download Center for updated drivers.

I just bought a phillips go gear audio video player and I cannot get Widows Media player to recognize it. Am I missing a driver?


Make sure the installation CD was run. If you lost it, get the software from Philips website.

Check your manual - the newer GoGear's cannot accept a transfer through Windows Media Player - if the manual does not say that you can use Windows Media Player to transfer, then you must drag and drop the files directly using Windows Explorer. The latest GoGear's were a step backwards for Philips, rather than a step forward.

Make sure your device is under MTP mode...to do that go under the menu settings, usb and device mode and change it to MTP

Assuming that you have windows media player 10.
1. Creating a selection in Windows Media Player
Launch Windows Media Player 10. Click on the Library tab then Add to Library > Add folder and select a folder (e.g. compilation of favourite songs, converted CD, folder of downloaded songs, etc.) from your hard drive (See Image 1). Click OK to confirm your selection. Your folder data will appear in the main window. Repeat the procedure for your other albums.

You can also do this by clicking File > Add to library > Add folder.

When your folders are ready, click-hold to select all your songs and then drag them to the window on the left, as indicated. Select the entire list again and click Now Playing List and select Synch List (See Image 2).

2. Transferring your selection to your MP3 player
Click on the Synchronize tab. Connect your MP3 player to your computer, your player will be automatically recognized by the computer and synchronization (that is file transfer) will begin immediately.

3. Transferring your MP3s to flash memory
Insert the memory card from your MP3 player or MP3 phone into your computer's card reader and open My Computer. Windows XP will automatically recognize your memory card and its icon should appear next to the other icons.

Click on its icon to open your memory card.

Select the MP3 file to transfer. If you want to transfer several files at once, control-click each individual file. In the File Manager window, click Copy File and select the destination folder.

Check this site for more clarification...I hope this helps..

Transferring pics from computer to sandisk


Are you using the Media Converter to transfer the pics? Pictures and video have to go to through the Media Converter program that came with your player. They also can only be used on the internal storage, not from the microSD card.
