Question about Sony Vaio VGF-AP1L (40 GB) MP3 Player
Everytime i try and transfer music to my mp3 via sonic stage a message comes up saying...not allowed to transfer...even when i try and convert the format it still has an error mesage help!!!
Greetings from Ireland. I never had problems before, but i sent my MP3 player to sony for repair and when I received it it had the same issue.
The reason for this is that on the player there is some 5Mb of data that is generated by the firmware of the player. The firmware is like a bios of the device. If the firmware is not compatible with the software you're trying to transfer the music with, you will get this message.
Firstly, check if you have the latest version og Sonic Stage of Open Manager (depending where relevant). This should fix the issue. If it doesn't, you may need a firmware upgrade. The upgrade is easy to download and instal and is available directly from Sony.
Warning: Only install firmware and software updates provided by Sonly directly. Specially with firmware, wrong package can damage your player so be sure that the file you're downloading and installing is the right one.
