Whether the songs were recorded and downloaded in the format that is recognised by the Sony player is important.

I try and play a track on my Sony nw-hd3 mp3 player and everytime it says 'error cannot play track'! Please help

hi have you istalled the correct software that came with it.
if you have then it could be that the tracks you have put on it are in wrong format.
you can change the format by using search engine and type in change format you need to change them to mp3 also delete whats on their and start again if you use something like limewire you can get tunes for free and after downloading them store them in file then you can drag and drop them onto your mp3

Snoy NW-E105

I had the same problem and struggled with it for some time. I forgot the format feature on the device itself and kept formatting from my pc. This won't work.

The solution:

1. Unhook your device from the pc by pulling out the USB cable.
2. Click the "Menu" button 1 time (found on the back of your NW-E105 player).
- This will show "Display"
3. Click the " |<< " button 3 times (the button to rewind track).
- This will show "Format"
4. Click the Play/Stop button 1 time.
- This will show "Format: N"
5. Click the " |<< " button again 1 time.
- This will show "Format: Y>
6. Click the Play/Stop button 1 time (wait for "really?" prompt), click it again.

Now your device is formatted and will play the files you add to it.

Format problem

If "format error" is flashing, the format of the file system is wrong - it needs to be reinstated as Atrac3 file format. I'm guessing you formatted it using the option on your computer. I've had this problem with my Sony NW-E105, and fixed it. Turn on the player, and press your menu button. Scroll over until the option displays "format", and then select that.
