I think i have an answer, I also had this problem. I think is is a vista problem. What I did was plugged the sony into the usb [nothing], then i went into device manager and found the sony in Portable Devices as not installed correctly. I then uninstalled the device. Removed it from the PC then plugged it in again and it installed it again, I lost nothing from the walkman and can now see everything on the drive. Hopes this helps

I had the same issue, just hit the reset button and everything worked fine! Did not lose any of my songs.

The solution for this is only install the Windows Media Player 10 or later.
Particularmente el problema que tuve fue que cuando insertaba la memoria aparecía "Sync digital media files to this device" y "No realizar ninguna acción". En el explorer no aparecía la memoria !!
La solución para esto es sólo instalar la versión de Windows Media Player 10 ó mayor.

Hello everyone. i encountered the same problem. after i unplugged themp3 player the screen hung/froze showing only the sony walkman logo. iused the reset feature numerous times, but no luck (initially.)
ima linux user (ubuntu 8.10) and the sony mp3 player NWZ-B135F is in factCOMPATITIBLE with the Ubuntu Linux operating system. i triedlinux suggested solution mentioned in another thread.i let the power drain completely. however after the whole "ithung/froze" incident, even linux was not able to read the usb device.it wouldn't turn on and it wouldn't charge at all. so to troubleshootthis issue i used the Windows XP prof. OS which was able to detect thethe sony mp3 player when plugged into a usb port. but mind you, the mp3player device was not appearing under "my computer"
i downloaded the FIRMWARE for NWZ-B135F found on this page below:
afterrunning this program, the Windows XP prof. OS clearly detected the mp3player device and it now appeared under "my computer" as a removabledisk. (at this point, the sony mp3 player lit up and it started tocharge again) i reformatted the sony mp3 player memory to FAT and ranthe NWZ-B130_V1_01.exe (firmware) again. the system reset and itworked! i only had 20 songs so losing the files was no big deal. i wasjust glad it started to work again.
regarding vista os users:
i also have the vista OS and it does not detect the sony mp3 device. that is because "This model of Walkman player is compatible with the 64-bit version of the Windows Vista® operating system only." it is stated on the sony support site. most laptops are only 32 bit.
anyway, hope this helps someone. if you have questions, just message me. have a good day.
