    I have the exact same problem using Window's Vista with error code 00004e2e, heading shows Sonic Stage 00000908-6736. I've tried reloading several times, and removing, clearing out files, and changing the folders for saving data. Also tried Windows XP compatability mode. None of this works.

I have this problem too. Found that if you go to the folder that has the music file in it, right click on each problem file and select 'open with -> " and choose Sonic stage, then it will import the file. Next problem may be that it imports it with 'unknown' as the file name but if you then right click on the file within SonicStage and select 'Get CD info' it will find it. Tedious if you have several dozen/hundred files that won't import I'm afraid...

Try downloading the newest version of SonicStage from the website.
Select your Model and click the blue button.
That one supports Vista.

had same problem, but it's easy to solve. When you use vista and sonicstage 4.3 (vista version)

I dunno how to transfer mp3 to my player..... cz everytime i'd tried..i failed... pls show me the manual to do it...step by step.... either by sonicstage or mp3 file manager

MP3 players can only play music that are in mp3 file format. You need to convert/rip music into mp3 file format and then copy them to your MP3 player.
For details on converting music to mp2 format, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

No Data/Format error on Sony Network Walkman

Sony Network Walkman does not support adding / removing of files, or formatting if it is not done from SonicStage, their software.
If music is added of removed from windows explorer or other software, the player gives an error message 'No data' or something similar.
To fix the problem, download and install SonicStage from Sony support website.
Select your model and click continue, then scroll down, select your operating system in the select box to the bottom of the page and select the software you want to download...
After installing, connect the player to your computer and select 'format' from the menu (This will remove all data from the player, so you might want to make a backup).
Now transfer your music files to the player using sonicstage.

Good Luck

How do i format my sony mp3player walkman

You have to work from Sonicstage.
Follow these steps:

Install Sonicstage (probably you've already done that)

After installing, connect the player to your computer and select 'format' from the menu (This will remove all data from the player, so you might want to make a backup).
Now transfer your music files to the player using sonicstage.

If you don't transfer them using sonicstage, the player data will get corrupt and tell you there is no data.

The solution posted by guest using
works great. Sony's stupid software won't install on my computer so my wife couldn't use her mp3 player. This enabled me to add music finally!

Here are more detailed instructions if needed:
1. Click on the link (best to right-click and open in new window or tab so you can still refer to this page):
2. The page that opens provides some information about the program. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the link there.
3. Click download in the green box located in the upper right corner of the screen.
4. You should now see a list of files (JavaStage, nwe00xmp3man, Optionals). Click on "nwe00xmp3man".
5. You should now have a longer list of files (v0.17, v0.16, etc). You should also see the file "NW-E00X_MP3_File_Manager-0.17a.jar" or something similar if a newer version has been developed towards the top of the screen. If this file is not visible click on the highest "v0.xx" file (it is v0.17 as of the moment). The .jar file should now be available. Right click on the .jar file and "save as" on your desktop.
6. Click on the back button in your internet browser and then click on the "Optionals" file.
7. Right click on the file and "save as" on your desktop.

From here the directions provided by guest are pretty clear. Format your mp3 player. Copy the .jar file and the unzipped OMGAUDIO folder to your player. To use double-click the .jar file in the player, browse to find the songs you want to add in your computer, use the buttons in the lower left corner of the program to add the songs, and then click on the save icon in the very bottom right corner of the program ("Write titles to player") and you're done.

Help me with my sony nwwm mem aad mp3 player

if you've already formatted it through the mp3 player, you can't get back your music. you need to download sonicstage or use the MP3 File Manager program (available here i prefer that program because you atually store it on the mp3 player. it's very lightweight and you can use any computer to load music onto it without installing sonicstage.
after formatting any sort of disk, you can't get data back that was once there (with some exceptions). Start downloading new music!
