Sony NW-E405 MP3 Player

I bought my MP3 player a couple of months ago and I've been very pleased with it. I allowed the battery to get very low, but have sinced re-charged it, but it won't work. When I plug it into the computer using the USB, it shows the battery as being full, but when I disconnect it, it won't turn on. I've tried re-setting it, can anybody please help? Many thanks in advance.

I have a generic 512MB MP3 player. When formating this player using my PC WINDOWS XP I had to make sure to select the FAT file system (and not FAT32). I hope this helps. All the best, CYBERFILMMAKER

Dear friend,

I guess that your mp3 file are corrupted or the file not support on your mp3 player. Please watch the file type of your audio. Thx

You will need SonicStage or your device's MP3 Manager to be able to transfer MP3.

Try formatting the device again using its built-in formatting features.

(WARNING: There is no way you can retrieve your data. Since it has already been formatted, it's assumed that you have backup.)

In your Sony NW-E405 MP3 Player:
1. Press and hold the SEARCH/ MENU button
2. Go to ADVANCED MENU (press the Play/ Stop button)
3. Select FORMAT (press Play/ Stop button)
4. From the opt "Format OK?" select OK (press the Play/ Stop button)
5. Once finished, you can Cancel out.

After these steps, your device should screen out "No Data." From there, you can re-transfer your files.
