Cant Transfer New Songs and Keep Getting files called (No Name) Appearing and Multiplying

Hi I have over 3500 songs on my walkman. I cant seem to transfer any more, even though I have 5Gb free. Also, I keep getting songs called (No Name) appearing. The number of these files increases and they keep reappearing even when I've binned them all. Can anyone help? I really like my walkman, but it is useless if I cant transfer any more songs to it. My wife has the same model, and has more songs on it, so I don't think the problem is related to the number of tracks - but I may be wrong! Thanks for your help

Problem connecting walkman to computer

Once you have added files in one mode, those files cant be changed in the other. Solve your MP3 Player Connection Problem.
See my tip posted here about this problem. Now Sony has 2 programs on their site for the walkman. One is called "Content Transfer" the other is called "Media Manager for Walkman" Check out these programs see if they help. Lastly, on the back of the player Is a small hole the tip of a paper clip will fit into to reset the player, try that if all else fails.

Cant transfer limewire music from my computer to my mp3

You can't use Limewire directly to transfer songs to the Nextar. You will need to transfer the songs to the Nextar using Windows Media Player. Limewire puts the songs in a folder called "Limewire Downloads" usually. You will need to open Windows Media Player, run the mouse over the "Library" tab, and select "Add to Library." Once the window pops up you will need to add the folder called "Limewire Downloads" - it may take several minutes, but Windows Media Player is going to add all of those Limewire downloads to its own library. Then, you can use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs to the Nextar.

Cant transfer a playlist to my sony mp3 player

Windows Media Player (WMP) 11 in XP does not create Playlist on my MP3 MTP device. I have a Sony Walkman NWZ-S544 but I think my problem and its solution could also apply to other MP3 players that don't receive Playlists from WMP. And perhaps to Vista and Windows 7?
When I connected my WALKMAN to my PC and used WMP to Sync (transfer) Playlists to it, the songs were correctly Synched but no Playlists were created on my WALKMAN. My problem was that Windows had installed the wrong driver for my WALKMAN. Here is how I diagnosed and fixed the problem.
DIAGNOSIS: When I used WMP to Sync, the picture in WMP's right hand window was a generic MP3 device. It should have looked like my WALKMAN NWZ-S544. When I looked at the device drivers, I couldn't find a driver for my WALKMAN NWZ-S544 under Portable Devices, but instead found a non-MTP Walkman listed as a USB Mass Storage Device. (See Fix explanation for how to look at device drivers.)
Fix: To fix the problem I first uninstalled the incorrect driver and then installed the correct driver. Here's how…
  1. I disconnected all MP3 players and USB devices (Key/thumb/External Hard drives, etc) from my PC.
  2. I opened the Device Manager. Right-click My Computer-Click Properties.-Click Hardware Tab-Click Device Manager. No Portable Devices were showing. Click the + to the left of the Universal Serial Bus Controllers heading and there was one USB Mass Storage Device but it was for an irrelevant memory card reader on my PC that I can't disconnect.
  3. I connected my Walkman. Looking at the Device Manager, I see that one new USB Mass Storage Device is now showing, I right click-Properties and it describes it as a Compatible USB storage device (Walkman). This is my problem. Windows is using an older Walkman driver. My Walkman driver should be for a MTP device.
  4. I again right click the Walkman USB storage device and click Uninstall. I click OK to Confirm Device Removal. The Device Manage no longer shows my Walkman which has now turned itself off.
  5. I disconnect my Walkman and then reconnect it. Windows gives me the message that I have installed new hardware. The Found New Hardware Wizard starts. I click "No, not this time" and then Next. I click "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and then Next. I click "Don't search. I will chose the driver to install." and then Next. I click "Show compatible hardware" and I select "MTP Device" under Model and then Next. Windows then finds the appropriate driver for my Walkman and I'm done.
VERIFICATION: To verify that it is properly installed, look in the Device Manager under Portable Devices (while your Walkman is connected). Click + and you should see:"Walkman NWZ-S544". Or simply look under Name in My Computer and you should see an entry for Walkman NWZ-S544, and an icon that looks like your Walkman. Everything should now work properly.

Can't add new songs

1) Make sure the file type is compatible with the player
2) make sure the files do not have DRM encryption - BearShare, Napster, etc all have DRM-encrypted files

Using Windows Media Player 11 or Real Player 10.5 to Transfer Music

make sure to use the applet in the system tray (bottom right corner) that when left clicked, opens a list of available usb devices to stop before disconnecting.
