Re: Sony NW A3000 Walkman

Follow these steps- - Open the Sony Walkman from "My Computer". - Open the folder inside, then delete all the "DAT" files. - Open the second foler which is inside the first foler and delete all these files. - Close that and then open up "SonicStage" - Now delete all the files from your library, but, DO NOT delete them from your computer. - Now import all the songs again and it should pick up the device and start to transfer with no problems. I have done this with my Sony Walkman and it now works. If you experiance more problems contact me at

A3000 is still locked on the connection screen.

Pressing the reset button will not scrub your a3000 memory.
I have just tried it on mine to make sure I dont give you wrong info.
It just switches it off.

Error code 82040008

Ive searched but can't find anything on your error code. It seems Sony made a real lemon with this unit and made many thousands of people very unhappy. Most of the trouble seems to originate with the lousy software. The latest downloads can be found at Personally if I owned it and had the chance I'd be going for a more reliable unit. Check out this site for unhappy customers. BMW
