Re: Sonic stage freezes when trying to delete...

If you haven't installed the latest version of SonicStage - v4.3, uninstall your version and install it from here: If it still continues to lock up, I think that it's an issue with the database on the device. The easiest way to remedy this would be to initialise the disk and copy your music over again. To reinitialise the disk, go to the home menu, choose settings in the bottom left, go up once to "Initialize Disk" and select it, then select yes to proceed.

I couldn't delete song files from T.sonic 850. I connect it to my computer thru USB & when i delete the song files, it get duplicated & appear as 0MB. when i play the player, those songs appeared...

I had this exact problem as well. The solution was to allow Windows to "Scan and Repair" the file system. The scan will likely detect all the duplicate 0-byte files created as you tried to delete files, and will remove these. In addition it should resolve the underlying problem such that you can now delete files normally without creating more of these 0-byte duplicates.

ive got the new version of the sony sonic stage downloaded onto my laptop,and when i plug my player into my laptop via usb cable,the player itself is recognized straight away as a harddrive/removable disk etc,and you have to transfrer music onto the player as from sonic stage music library,and you also have to creatate you own music library via sonic stage,and u can also transfer music from your own music library wich you use via windows media player,and also u can transfer a cd into you sony sonic stage music libraty,and this is similar to when your using the windows media player as to rip a cd or transfer music onto an mp3 player,as i use all diffrent types of mp3 players myself,and i find the archos gmini sx 202 player to be pretty awesome player,as ive got to of them as well,and i use windows media player as to transfer music files onto them,and i cannot transfer any music files onto the sony ones via windown media player as those music file wont show up on the player at all,and ive tried this myself,and it will only work via sony sonic stage.

Just opened mine an hour ago. Version 3.0 Sonic Stage in the box. They really want you to use their Atrac compression. In Sonic Stage, Import your files (or let it create your libray), then it will convert as needed.

I am now listening to music. Meanwhile I have downloaded Sonic Stage 4.3 from Sony website, as well as the 4.3 security patch.

However, they have an MP3 driver that will allow you to load MP3 onto this device, without Sonic Stage (you'll need to install). Doesn't say if it will allow WMA too.

I'll be trying more tomorrow.

You could try doing what you did on "My Computer but right clicking on "Removable Disk E" and clicking format which will format it and may bring the connecting devices back.

However try using Windows Media Player 10 or 11 to put music on again, because media player may find your device.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.
