Sony walkman nwz-a816 getting usb device not recognized

When connecting my sony walkman nwz-a816 to my windows xp or windows vista computer the pop up error states usb device not recognized. this started happening after a friend downloaded music from limewire on it. i formatted the walkman and reset it by sticking a pin into the side reset button. the walkman will not charge anymore also.

    When connecting by usb it is no longer recognized by windows. It used to give me a message saying "usb device not recognized" but now nothing happens. Plugging through the computer won't charge it either but plugging to a wall charger will charge it. I can't load any songs though. any advice?

Okay, try plugging it in. Go to Startmenu, right click 'My computer', and select properties. Go to the 'Hardware' tab, then Device manager. Down at the bottom, you should see a section of the tree that can be expanded, entitled 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' Find the Unknown device part. Select that, then go to 'Action','Uninstall'. After un-installation, the computer might restart. Unplug your walkman. When windows is back up, plug it in, and see if that works. if not, I have an alternative solution

If you have XP SP3 installed , you might face this problem.
Go to the Device manage. Click on the update driver of the sony walkman device driver.

Click next and finish. You are done and enjoy the data transfer and music.

Mp3 will not connect with my computer


I'm pretty sure I fixed a similar problem. Go to your device manager on your PC and uninstall the walkman driver. After this is complete just plug the walkman back into you Pc and the plug and play will download the driver again. This worked for me. My operating system is Windows vista.
