Sony NW HD5: Transfer and tagging problems

My computer died on me a while ago (full memory loss etc etc), anyway I have now got a new computer. However all my music is on my player and as it is tagged for my old computer, I can't transfer it back onto the new one. I also have had to install a new Sonic Stage as I lost the original disc. Is there anyway around this problem? Thanks Nick

Re: Sony NW HD5: Transfer and tagging problems

If you want to convert your Sony Atrac formatted tracks to normal MP3's you should download and run Grab Your Music: It's not a 10 minute job, read the docs get it started and let it run for an hour or so.

1st ? yes you can store music to it and no you don't need any fancy software to transfer your music to the device just try these methods
**Drag and Drop**
Connect your MP3 player to the computer. Some MP3 players connect directly to a USB port, while others connect to a USB port by way of a specific USB connector that comes with the MP3 player. Open the folder on the computer that contains the music files you want to transfer. This is usually the "My Music" folder, available from the "Start" menu, but it can be any folder where you save your music files. Scroll down to the song you want to transfer to the MP3 player. Right-click on the title. When the options are displayed, click on "Send To." Scroll down the "Send To" options and select your MP3 player. This can be listed as your MP3 player's name or as "Removable Drive." Click on this selection. Continue this process until you have transferred all songs that you want to your MP3 player.
--**Windows Media Player**--
If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.

How to replace backup of OMGAUDIO file

Sounds like a sound issue. i would send it back to SONY and demand that they either, give you a full written explanation of how to fix, or fix it themselves. (they wouldn't be bothered to write it out...)

I have Sony NW HD5 MP3, had to replace hard drive in my laptop.

SONY Walkman MP3 players are incapable to transfer from the player to PC. It's a copyright thing. since your hard drive was replaced, your PC is no longer the same one that the player originally had tracks transferred from (according the the MP3 player).  So, ultimately, those tracks will remain on the player until you remove them, they cannot be transferred back to a PC. I understand the annoyance, it's a pointless function, but for some reason, it has importance to SONY.

Sony HD5 problem

I'm afraid I have some bad news for you I think, I had the exact same problem and i took it in to get looked at by a sony autohised repairer and they quote me $488 to fix it they say it needs a new hard drive.

You can get it checked out I wasted $50 just for them to look at.

Connecting to PC

I'm sure as a new buyer, the last owner did not tell you this. This is what the player does. there will not be full, white battery until you remove the USB, usually, i leave my player on for about 2 hours to be sure. the 'Connecting to PC' screen is what the standard screen is during USB connection to the PC is. Once you remove the connection (remove the USB from the PC for the player) it will jump to a new screen. 'Creating Database'. Don't worry, your player is not frozen, it's standard.
