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.

Whether the songs were recorded and downloaded in the format that is recognised by the Sony player is important.

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.
