"Format Error" after format with windows explorer (XP)
"Format Error" displayed on screen.
With USB cable attached, the dispaly reads "USB connect". PC is able to access the player and I can see the files in the OMGAUDIO directory. The SonicStage client does copy MP3 files to the drive, but I can not play the songs...
I format my MP3 Player from then windows explorer, after that, the message ever displayed on screen "Format Error", and it doesn't allow me to make anything...

Re: "Format Error" after format with windows explorer...
"NO DATA"/"FORMAT ERROR" may appear and the tracks cannot be played when formatting the unit in Windows explorer and transferring tracks from SonicSatge. In this case, format by MENU of the unit and transfer tracks again.

The camera port only supports USB-equipped digital cameras that support Pict-Bridge. If you attach a USB device that is not compactible digital camera (or Bluetooth adaptor) to the camera port, an error message appears on the color graphics display. If you have an older HP-brand digital camera, try using the USB that came with the camera. PLug it into the USB port on the back of the HP-all-in-one and not into the camera port near the memory card slots, This works with HP digital cameras only.
By default, Windows XP will format a memory card of 8 MB or less and 64 MB more with the FAT32 format, Digital cameras and other devices use the FAT (FAT 16 or FAT 12) format and cannot operate with a FAT32 formatted card. Either format your memory card in your camera or select FAT format to format your memory card in a Windows XP PC.
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.
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.
you need to format, full format, use windows explorer, right click on ipod then format, not quick, then load itunes, should give you the option to restore, do this, then should automatically sync music as long as you don't tick the manual manage box.
Hey. Well first, some of the songs that you put in, well...Sony Co.
cannot transfer directly, so you would have to use their Sonicstage
program, aka the converting button. Like most Sony mp3 players, you need to use Sonicstage to put songs in the mp3 player.
the Sony NW-E405, simply go to the Transfer menu at the top right of
the program, (along where the My Library button is) and select the
song. In the middle of the screen should be arrows along with a
suitcase looking button. Click the luggage button and a screen should
pop out. It should have two choices, a Standard Transfer Mode and a
Specified bit rate transfer mode. Click the Specified one and select
either the 105kbps (ATRAC 3) or the 132kbps (ATRAC 3) for great sound quality and small memory usage. The others are too big or too bad for sound quality. It should now work.
Now the mp3 player should be able to read it, since it is now in ATRAC 3 version, not the mp3 version.
I Think The Problem Is That Your Formatted your Mp3 Player Through Your Pc That Is What Created The Format Error You Need To Format Through The Menu Of Your Mp3 Player Directly You Might Have To Do It Twice And it should Work Well
