firstly all the tracks you want must be converted into mp3 format. You can get hold off mp3 converter software such as Power and winlame. also all the tracks you want has to be imported into the Connect Player software. you should have a cd that comes with the player, it is similar to iTunes with the iPod. i think you can possibly download it from the sony website. when you have them both convert the tracks into mp3s and then import them into the Connect player. From Connect you will be able to transfer the music across. Hope it helps

Using a pair of pliers grab the silver loop on the back of that player. This is pulled up and backwards at an angle. it is held on by an adhesive pad. Once that is off the back just slots off like many mobile phone backs. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

This is VERY common in the NWA1200. Don't even bother with Sony, I've tryed its a dead end, but you can still get it fixed. I'm pretty sure FixYa don't allow advertising so please get in contact if you want it fixed:

SOURCE: No software for NW-A1000

I had the same or similar message and sent it away to be fixed last year. When it came back they said that it was because i had uploaded incompatible files (wma-windows media player files) and so it had corrupted the player. When i got it back I uploaded new files using the updated Sonicstage software (still not all that user-friendly) and had no problems.

I've since bought a new computer and no longer have the original software cd so i'm still trying to locate a free download (if anyone knows where i can get one, please let me know!) so that i can continue using it.

Hope this helps!!

Screen freezing at start up

Does it make a clicking noise when you switch it on, then your hard drive is broken and needs to be replaced.

Mp3 NW-A1000 was working but then suddenly didnt work

Update firmware
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware.
Call Sony

Problem with screen

When things freeze up like this, usually a Firmware reload is the thing to attempt. You should have a disc with the player - follow the instructions carefully.
