You maybe able to use Windows Media Player 10 or 11, if you want to try well connect your mp3 player to the computer now wait a few seconds then go to Windows Media Player ( if your using windows media player 10 i recommend you to update to media player 11 for better results but if not when your on Windows Meda Player look for a link called "Sync" when you've found it click on that.

Now your on "Sync" if should have found your mp3 player now just drag and drop music you wish to have on your mp3 player on the side panel where it's got a little image of an mp3 player.

Once you've added the music, safely remove the mp3 player like you normally would then see if the music has successfully tranfered.

Here is the new Windows Media Player 11 if you haven't got it already.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.

Hey! We've had a similar dilemma, and we solved it by connecting walkman to computer, then going into 'device manager' uninstalling the walkman, then remove it from usb port and re-connect it.

The computer will then 'recognize new hardware' and automatically re-install the walkman. Good as new!

Hope this helps!

--**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.

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.

Hello i have a mp4 media player, my problem is that no turn on the batery is ok when i put the select in ON the media player no turn on i try to connect in to the pc but no conected to can you help me

Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this. Thank you for choosing FixYa to solve your problem. Your problem is that your MP4 player will not come on, even when you connect it to your PC? Well, you should try recharging your battery. There are two ways you can charge this device using your USB cable. The first way is by connecting the USB cable to your PC. Charging will take 8 hours by this method. The second way is connecting the USB cable to the wall charger that was supplied with your media player. If you had a problem connecting to your PC, you should try charging via the wall charger. Charging is much faster this way than using a computer. If charging doesn't turn your device back on, your battery may be defective. If that's the case, you'll need to get the battery or your media player replaced. Hope it's just a recharge that's needed. Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop solution spot for your problems. Have a good day, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this. Come back and visit our site again whenever you need assistance!

Dear sir, my zen creative i pod is freezes on zen screen, it also does't connecting with my pc. so plz guide me how to solve my problem.


Flip the "Hold" switch that's on either one of the sides or the top of the MP3 player to "OFF." Press "Play" or any other button to try to unfreeze the player.

Leave the MP3 player on in its frozen state until the player's battery completely dies. Depending on the amount of life left on the battery, this could take several hours.

Connect the MP3 player (using the universal serial bus or USB cord) to an MP3 charger or a computer. Turn the computer on. Leave the MP3 player charging for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Connect the MP3 player to a computer using the USB cord. Open the software media program that syncs with that particular MP3 player. Then, click on the "Sync Player" or "Sync" link or tab, depending on the program you're using. Wait ten seconds, and then try to use the MP3 player. Disconnect the player from the computer if it's still frozen.

Press "Reset" on the MP3 player. Depending on the MP3 player you own, the button may be easy to find or incredibly small. With tiny buttons, a tack, needle or similar item is needed for pushing. Press and hold the "Reset" button for approximately seven to ten seconds. The player should unfreeze and reset. Some data, such as music, may be removed from the MP3 player during this process.

Charging problem

Hello lil ronaldo,

It sounds like the internal battery pack may be failing. The rechargeable batteries commonly used in MP3 players last a long time but they do eventually fail and when that happens the battery will fail to properly hold a charge. It may come up to full voltage when you attempt to charge it but will quickly run out of power when removed from the charger. This sounds like what is happening based on your description.

I would recommend contacting Samsung to get battery replacement service. You can call them at 1-800-SAMSUNG (726-7864) or use their online service request tool. If the unit is outside of the original manufacturer's warranty there will probably be a charge for the service.

Best Regards,
"Go Ahead. Use Us."
