You have to transfer the music you downloaded to a new folder in sonicstage. From thier you should be able to put your music on a playlist in sonicstage. From there, you have to press the big red arrow in the middel of the playlist and mp3 player memory to transfer the file. I should all be found in the main screen of sonicstage. Now try that out.

How do you transfer songs on Sony Bean MP3 Player to a computer. I don't have the computer that I used to use for it. When I plugged it in to my new computer, nothing came up.

These types of devices are not made to be able to transfer songs from the device to a computer as to reduce the likelihood of illegal copying of songs - It might be a case where you just need to put all the songs back onto you computer and in future make sure you backup all your data. I would listen to the Sony technician.

I need to take songs off my bean mp3 player but I am not sure how to take the songs off. cant find my manual, can you help?

When you connect the MP3 player to the computer's USB port, the computer detects thia as an external storage device.
When you click on this and open the drive, you may see a music folder or mp3 music files. To delete the mp3 file you want remove, click on the mp3 file to highlight it and press the Delete key on you computer to remove the mp3 file.

SONY BEAN WONT SYNC MUSIC WITH ITS SONIC STAGE SOFTWARE. with what software can i sync music on this mp3 player

--**Windows Media Player**--
If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.

My walkman bean player shows a message CANNOT PLAY ,when i try to play a song.

if it happens with one single song it's because the file type is not formatted, you'll need to convert it (try mp3 :) if it happens with all of your songs first try checking their type if it's okay, try formatting your walkman and putting new songs

My bean won't play songs when i download them on to the device.

Maybe its the unsupported format. Format the song you want to play using .mp3 format, 128kbps, 4400Hz (or whatever), and 2.0 (stereo) to see if it works.

Good luck, and Happy Holidays.

The Sony bean needs a downloader program to get songs on it the program is on basically the bean doesn?t see the songs because of the format. Just go to and get the download and put the mp3s threw the program.

My mp3 doesn't work

A few options, one is that you deleted system files when deleting mp3's and now its inoperable. Sorry, can't really help you on that one. another option is that you're just not using the sony software to put songs in the player. song will transfer, but the player won't know what to do with it. I heard that apart from the sonic stage software, there's another simpler one (minus some BS) than the sonic, on the sony site. Good luck
