Will not initialize a new disk; often freezes up when trying.

Put in new disk and prompt asks if it should be initialized. select yes, and player either freezes or ejects the disc without doing anything. Resetting per the manual does not always reset, and unit has to be unplugged to reset. It did initialize disks when it was brand new but started above problem at about 10 months. Not heavily used.

Hello, I would suggest opening the unit & cleaning the lens with a cotton swab lightly soaked with rubbing alcohol. Especially if it has been used in an enviroment wich is dusty or the unit has been smoked around. Also, are you using the same type of discs, Some discs are better quality than others try using Imation they read in almost anything. Also if you do have to clean the lens you may want to lighty lubricate the rails the laser moves on using a drop or two of 3in1 oil per rail.

If it still will not work then I would say that the laser pickup is failling. Specificly the laser used for burning the disc, Since there are usually two lasers one for burning & one for playback.

La Cie USB hard dirve its lighting intermittently red and yelow and the computer not recognized


Plug your usb drive into your computer. Then right click on my computer and select manage. Select disk management in the left pane. scroll down to look for your external drive in the bottom pane. You might need to initialize the disk by right clicking the gray area to the left of your disk on the bottom pane. If its already initialized you should be able to right click the disk just to the right of where you just clicked and select format, making sure to assign a drive letter and do a quick format of ntfs through the wizard that pops up. If the drive is labeled GPT protected you'll have to convert the disk to MBR by using the diskpart command. Go to start then run and type cmd and hit enter to bring up the command prompt.
  1. Type diskpart and hit enter
  2. Type list disk and hit enter and find your disk in the output
  3. Type select followed by your disk's number, for example "select disk 1"
  4. Type clean and hit enter
  5. Close the command prompt and now you should be able to initialize and format your disk.

To reformat the NWZ-S545 Walkman follow these steps found on page 92 of the operation guide:

You can format the built-in flash memory of the player.

Note:
  • If the memory is formatted, all data (songs, videos, photos, etc., including sample data installed at the factory) will be erased. Be sure to verify the data stored in memory prior to formatting, and export any important data to the hard disk of your computer.
  • Be sure not to initialize (format) the built-in flash memory of the player using Windows Explorer. If you have formatted with Windows Explorer, format again using the player.
  • This function is only available in the pause mode.

Say's it needs to initialize and comes up with eisa.


The EISA partition is a partition that a computer manufacturer places on the disc to assist in recovery of that maker's files. It is not necessary to have this partition if you do not intend to perfrom a factory recovery. I will include a guide below to assist you in a deletion of that partition. To initialize a disc, it can be done ways, boot the computer and it will advise you the disc has not been initialized and will initiate a wizard to assist. I attach the hard drive to another computer using an EIDE/SATA to USB adapter, it will be recognized as an external drive but will not give it a drive letter because it is not initialized. You have to go to the control panel > administrator tools > computer management > disc management. Look in the right lower pane and it will show the drive with a grayed out box to the left, it may label the drive as drive 03 or 04 etc. Right click on the drive number and choose initiate. The computer will initiate the drive and give it a letter. It will also ask you if you want to initiate the drive as a bootable drive, choose yes. Below is the guide to delete that EISA partition so you can use the drive in any laptop you see fit.

EISA Partition Delete

1. Open a command prompt as administrator.
2. Run Diskpart application by typing Diskpart in the command prompt.
3. In the “Diskpart” prompt, enter rescan command and press Enter key to re-scan all partitions, volumes and drives available.
4. Then type in list disk and press Enter key to show all hard disk drive available.
5. Select the disk that contains the partition you want to remove. Normally, with just 1 hard disk, it will be disk 0. So the command will be:
select disk 0
Finish by Enter key.
6. Type list partition and press Enter key to show all available and created partition in the disk selected.
7. Select the partition that wanted to be deleted by using the following command, followed by Enter key:
select partition x
where x is the number of the EISA based recovery partition to be removed and unlocked its space. Be careful with the number of this partition, as wrong number may get data wipes off.
8. Finally, type in delete partition override and press Enter key.
Once the partition has been deleted, exit from Diskpart, and now users can use the much familiar and much easier Disk Management tool in Windows (diskmgmt.msc) to manipulate the freed unallocated partition. Users can create a new volume (partition) with this space, or simply merge it to existing partition by extending the size of the existing partition.

Boss BR 8...I insert the 100 mb disk, then asks to initialize..I enter 'yes' then it asks 'sure?' I enter yes then it says 'medium error' then ejects the disk..what's the problem?


If the disk had data put on with a PC you might try deleting all files and folders using the PC before formatting the disk in the BR8.

It is also possible that the media has gone bad.

A final try would be to degauss the disk and try to format on the BR8.

Disk Initialize


If it's a DVD recorder, make sure you are using compatible DVD-R media. Check in the user's manual if it supports DVD+R or DVD-R.

Disk boot failure


Not sure if your windows operation system is working. If so here are the instructions. Otherwise you can boot from cd (XP) and format the drive.
To access the disk management tool right click on My Computer and select Manage from the menu. There will appear a window with 3 categories in the left: System Tools, Storage and Services and applications. By selecting Storage, the menu will expand and from the dropped down list choose Disk Management, which is the purpose of this tutorial. In the right panel of the window there are shown the disks with partitions, as well as the CD-ROM / DVD-ROM drives.
Initialize new disks

New disks appear as Not Initialized. Before you can use a disk, you must first initialize it. If you start Disk Management after adding a disk, the Initialize Disk Wizard will appear, so you can initialize the disk.
So, right-click the disk you want to initialize, and then click Initialize Disk; in the Initialize Disk dialog box, select the disk(s) to initialize.

Sonic stage freezes when trying to delete files when trying to delete files using sonic stage the program frezes and will not allow me to delete any files from my walkman


If you haven't installed the latest version of SonicStage - v4.3, uninstall your version and install it from here: http://www.sonydigital-link.com/DNA/sonicstage/sstage_dl.asp?l=en&c=WM&sc=NWH&m=NW-A3000 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.
