Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I'm experiencing problems with my 5 year old Sony Walkman NWZ-E436F. Everytime I turn it on, it goes to the opening screen with the "Every Moment has its Music", then goes to "Creating Library" then shuts off and when I try to turn it on again it does the same thing again and again. It won't even connect to my computer anymore. My computer says that "The Device driver has failed to install" and yet I connected it not 6 hours before this started happening. Please help me, I've got 6 years of my life on that mp3 player, I really do wish to get it back.

Hi I had the same problem and I finally figured it out.
First you will have to try to connect to the computer by pluggin it in and reseting once the computer recognizes it you should be able to look at the files.
If you are able to get the device to this point;
1. create a folder on you computer it could be in you desktop or document and name it something you would remember to go to. I named mine SONY.
2. copy all the folders from your WALKMAN to this folder;
3. delete all files from your WALKMAN there are some files it will not allow you to and just hit SKIP.
4. download the Firmware update (1.02) from the SONY Suport website: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=NWZE436F and select your computers operating system and download the file.
5. Once you download it run it and it should re-install all the necesary files back to you device.
6. Re-start the WALKMAN and it sould work just fine now you can go back and add your music files and photos, etc...
Good luck this worked perfectly for mine.

First reset yours by the Back button;
If not solved;
Reset again by the button, the On the Computer by Fat32 Format, and then Copy the Initial Files that were on your MD when you Bought;
