SOURCE: Adding video to my Walkman NWZ-A815

you have to use an mpeg file and not an mp4 file.
The mpeg file should have been converted with an mp4 codec before transfering it to the media manager for walkman

SOURCE: everytime I try to load videos onto my mp3 it wont

Hi dalychris,

Next time you connect the mp3 to the computer, go to the folder where the videos are dropped (generally a folder named VIDEO) and check what the extension is. If it is not mp4, you'll have to convert and resize it. There are plenty of free and paid programs available for such conversions. The standard video format for a walkman is the same as that for an ipod, .mp4, so you can try out this site: . There are other freeware programs available too, like VirtualDub that you can use to convert your videos, or paid programs like Xilisoft. After the conversion is done, you should be able to transfer and play the file easily.

SOURCE: can't play back video on sony walkman nwz-s616F

Hi everyone, I had this problem with the Sony MP3 players I bought for my kids (NWZ-S615F). There's a new (free) video converter from iWisoft ( or which does the trick. I looked into the others mentioned here and there were some virus/trojan horse concerns but so far this one seems fine. I downloaded the file, then did a virus scan, then ran the application and did another virus scan. I've used it 10-15 times since then and did another virus scan and nothing comes up so looks good. Choose the output file format as the first option under iPod. If it hangs while doing the conversion, try to run the output file before you get frustrated - I've found that most of the time the conversion was completed before it hung and the video plays fine.

SOURCE: I have a sony walkman and im trying to convert

I have tried numerous converters and once I move the files to my Sony Walkman it says that either the file cannot be played or that there are no video files on it. I have used manual settings, I have used programs that auto convert for sony walkman and nothing. What I don't get is that only a few weeks ago I added some wmv files to it and they are working fine, but now if I try to add even one of the same files it wont work. Did I accidently uninstall something, or something?

SOURCE: I can't seem to get the media player to recognize

I can answer this one from experience. If you have the NWZ-S545 like I do, then this solution will allow you to play videos on your mp3 player with ease. It works like a charm for me.

The screen size of the player is about 320 x 240 that's the size the video needs to be. Here is how to do that step by step.

Step One: Download FormatFactory (It is a free media file converter. It works on music, videos, pictures, and mobile files, I have given the site below this step)

Step Two: Open FormatFactory

Step Three: Click on "All to MP4" in the Video tab on the left side.

Step Four: Add all the videos that you wish to put on the Walkman and click okay

Step Five: Select all of those videos and right click. There will be an option that says "Output setting" Click it

Step Six: Left click on video size and select 320x240 Standard from the drop down menu

Step Seven: Click Start at the top and enjoy

Make sure to check where the converted files are going to be placed. Once they are converted, put them on your mp3. This should work, if not, feel free to send me a message/email on either here or at the email below.

I bought a Sylvania 2.0 SMPK7834 today but it doesn't play avi format and says wrong file format.

There are plenty of video format converters available for free so you can convert avi to a more palatable format. Freemake is my favorite.

My son's new Sony Walkman NWZ-A728 suddenly won't play videos. I loaded one on to it from a stored file (in Realplayer, then Windows Media Player) but although it played this initially, suddenly it said...

Are the videos in the right format? The format that works for the mp3 is MP4 video. you must convert your videos using a mp4 converter.
i use winavi ipod converter (works with nwz a728)

Hope This Helps!
