Sony Walkman NWZ E436F turns off after "Creating Library"

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.

I have had my Sony walkman NWZ-E436F for about 3


Hey... I know this thread is fairly old... but I will tell you what I did. I have the Sony MP3 walkman,NWZ-E438F.. Until recently I have had no problems just disconnecting, I had no way of sagely ejecting. Yesterday, I tried disconnecting, and the screen started flickering and and saying that it was still connected... and that was all I got... so I left it plugged in till this morning. I went to Sonystyle.com.
At the top of the screen, find where it says support, click on online product support. When it brings you to the next page, you will see an area where you can put your model # right to the right of all the icons. Enter your model number found on the back of your device and press enter.
On the next page toward the top, you will see a link under Drivers & Software. Click on that. Select your operating system on the next page, select firmware and follow the steps... It really said I was upgrading from a current 1.02 to a new 1.02, but after it was done, the screen on my MP3 Continued sayin do not disconnect, and I was able to "safely" disconnect my device buy right-clicking that Icon in the bottom right hand corner of your PC.

That is the only time you have to disconnect in that fashion... once you plug it back in again, you can disconnect as you did before, by just unplugging. But now mine is Fine.

Sony NWZ-436F freezes when creating library


Old post I know, but i had a similar problem...
I think it has to do with the file types you upload - had the same issue, and through trial and error I finally noticed one album I uploading was an m4a format. When I would upload several files stepwise, making sure that the player starts after each upload, everything would be fine until I tried the m4a files - it would freeze on the creating library startup screen. This was for the same model as billybraga. Annoying.
