Question about Sony NW-E405 MP3 Player
Have you tried formatting the mp3 player?
If not, try this:
The mp3 player way for formatting:
By formatting on the mp3 player, it has be on either pause or stop button. Play button will not open the Initialize menu.
So go to menu, settings, scroll down to Initialize, and then click format. It should say OK?
A quick Format done screen should pop up.
The computer way is much longer but cleaner.
Go to my computer.
Right click the removable disk (or it would say whatever you named it to be)
and click format.
A screen should come up with some info like capacity and File system.
Forget all that and click Start.
It should probably take 2 minutes.
Then try it once more.
Okay, after it's done formatting, go to Sonicstage and click the Transfer button. After a few moments it should recognize the mp3 player and display the memory.
If it says something way below 400MB, then you have a big problem. However, anything higher than 470MB is correct.
Now Sony say 345 songs and they are correct...that only if you use their conversion tool, which is in the transfer bar. You would have to convert all your songs into their ATRAC 3 form, and that usually takes about 1 Hr for at least 200 songs. (yea I know) But that's the only way you can stuff 345 songs into it.
I almost filled it to 350, but it was on 64 KBPs for their ATRAC3. Sound quality was not bad, but it wasn't that great.
Hopefully this helped!
Please contact me if you need any more help!
