Question about Sony Network Walkman NW-E105

1 Answer

Snoy NW-E105 "Format Error" displayed on screen. With USB cable attached, the dispaly reads "USB connect". PC is able to access the player and I can see 17 files in the OMGAUDIO directory. The SonicStage client does copy MP3 files to the drive, but I can not play the songs... HELP After I formated my mp3-player (This computer -> formart H-drive) My player refuses to play my songs. It's saying "format error" on the display and whatever I do, doesn't solve the problem! Need help, please.

    I've had this player for years now. I started using it with Windows XP and it worked fine with the provided software. Now that I'm running windows, the provided software is no longer compatible. That might be why you and I are getting the "format error" messages. As for a solution to this stubborn problem, I'm afraid I'm no help. I've tried changing bitrates and everything else I can think of. Nothing is working.

I had the same problem and struggled with it for some time. I forgot the format feature on the device itself and kept formatting from my pc. This won't work.

The solution:

1. Unhook your device from the pc by pulling out the USB cable.
2. Click the "Menu" button 1 time (found on the back of your NW-E105 player).
- This will show "Display"
3. Click the " |<< " button 3 times (the button to rewind track).
- This will show "Format"
4. Click the Play/Stop button 1 time.
- This will show "Format: N"
5. Click the " |<< " button again 1 time.
- This will show "Format: Y>
6. Click the Play/Stop button 1 time (wait for "really?" prompt), click it again.

Now your device is formatted and will play the files you add to it.

No data. can't play music.


Hello,

how long have you been using the player?

I think the problem is from the lens (laser).

The lens is very weak such that it cannot read data from the disc.

You need to clean the lens with a cleaner and if it does not work, then it means you have to change the lens completely.

Take care.

Hey.
Well first, some of the songs that you put in, well...Sony Co. cannot transfer directly, so you would have to use their Sonicstage program, aka the converting button.
Like most Sony mp3 players, you need to use Sonicstage to put songs in the mp3 player.

For the Sony NW-E405, simply go to the Transfer menu at the top right of the program, (along where the My Library button is) and select the song. In the middle of the screen should be arrows along with a suitcase looking button. Click the luggage button and a screen should pop out. It should have two choices, a Standard Transfer Mode and a Specified bit rate transfer mode. Click the Specified one and select either the 105kbps (ATRAC 3) or the 132kbps (ATRAC 3) for great sound quality and small memory usage. The others are too big or too bad for sound quality. It should now work.

Now the mp3 player should be able to read it, since it is now in ATRAC 3 version, not the mp3 version.

Hopefully this solution helped.
Have a nice day!

Format problem


If "format error" is flashing, the format of the file system is wrong - it needs to be reinstated as Atrac3 file format. I'm guessing you formatted it using the option on your computer. I've had this problem with my Sony NW-E105, and fixed it. Turn on the player, and press your menu button. Scroll over until the option displays "format", and then select that.
