    I have exactly the same problem. Have been listening to MP3 at work today and when out on a run and it was rapidly down to the last quarter. Within mins of plugging usb in, it now says fully charged!

    I have the nwz-e something that hass 8GB and have the EXACT same problem. I could have purchased an ipod, but I thought "No, choose Sony for reliability". Seriously, wth.... Any fix on that? Im getting so pissed off. A temporary measure i found:
    Download firmware update. Open the software. I think it uses OTHER drivers to connect to the mp3 player. It starts charging normally, but displays "Do not disconnect" on the mp3 player (that's because it's expecting firmware update).You do not have to ACTUALLY CLICK START to actually RUN the update. Just leave the software open, and mp3 player will charge. But this measure is temporary and annoying. I want a proper fix for the money I paid. Any1 can help would be much appreciated,but SONY should REALLY do something about that..

    I am experiencing the same issue. My Walkman states that my battery is FULL, yet it is not. I have a 4GB, NWZ-E436F, SN 5197(***). Perhaps we can post the SN sequences and see if there may have been a battery 'lot' issue? My Walkman was working fine until I restarted my computer with the MP3 player attached. That seems to be the only reason for causing this issue. Did anyone else restart their computer with the Walkman attached?

You could try to plug it in the back of the computer instead of the front . . fixed the problem for me, it now charges properly.

Plugging into the rear USB seems to have fixed it for me also. Thanks.

I have the Sony WalkmanMZ-R700 and the digital pclink device an cables. How do I transfer songs from the walkman minicd to my computer?

As you would for any other analog stereo device. The only outputs are analog headphone x 2 (requires stereo mini plug). Your sound card and PC software would be the limitations.

SONY Walkman Mini Disc MZ-R70 W/Remote RM-MZR55.. records 3 or 4 songs perfectly then it starts flashing TOC EDIT and locks up?

are you using the computer with it, or using a line input or microphone input? How is the battery? If the battery gets really low it will do a TOC EDIT to save what you've got, or you lose everything.

Will not open/ operating manual?

if you have,nt got a disk jammed in it.
It could be a boken eject/open switch-Button-mechanism.
some are mechanically operated, some electrical.
Make sure you have fully charged batteries And Or A/C adaptor plugged In.

Sony Net MD Walkman (MZ-N910)

had the same problem a few minutes ago!
removed the battery but it didn't help.
tried with another md, no success
tried the same md in another Mz 910, no success

then it got on my nerves and I gave the MZ n910 a little shock with my hand.

It worked, stopped spinning and started to play.

It was, I think, a spinning problem, md couldn't play properly, the little shock helped.
