Re: Sony MP3 player is not working

The program or player is trying to connect to the internet, and it cannot establish a connection.

If your internet is connected, then make sure the songs that you are trying to load are in mp3 format - wma format is going to cause too many problems.

Transferring music to my mp3 player

This player is only compatible with a few audio formats. The DRM protection system on most WMA's simply won't work after a time. If you only transfer songs in mp3 format, you will never have such problems.

Transferring music to device

That error code means that the mp3 player is having a problem retrieving digital rights to the songs you have attempted to load.
The license on the songs that you are trying to download either does not permit transfer to mp3 players - or the license has expired. Use mp3 format songs only, and you will never have this problem. You can read my "Tips & Tricks" article on song formats if you really want more detailed information.

It seems that the album downloads to the computer but when i try to sync to the mp3 player i get an error. i've loades the media manager/windows-still no luck.

The format of the songs are wrong in one way or another. Each Mp3 player has a product spec sheet that lists which type of music file it is compatible with (Mp3, WMA, WAV, AAC, etc). You can't play iTunes songs, which are AAC format, on a player that only accepts Mp3 or WMA format.

The second formatting issue has to do with the DRM license on the songs you have downloaded. Right click a song that gave you an error, click on "Properties," and click on the "License," "Media Usage Rights," or "Digital Rights Mgmt" tab (wording varies by configuration). Not every song allows unlimited or even one-time transfer to a "portable device" (code word for "Mp3 player" in this case). Also, some songs are fixed-term - they expire after a while - sometimes in as little as 24 hours.

To get around this, convert every song to Mp3 format. Either that, or upgrade your music service subscription to the highest pkg they have available and never cancel (Napster's basic music svc, for instance, does not let you transfer to an Mp3 player, but their "Napster To Go" upgrade does allow transfer).

Error code 82040008

Ive searched but can't find anything on your error code. It seems Sony made a real lemon with this unit and made many thousands of people very unhappy. Most of the trouble seems to originate with the lousy software. The latest downloads can be found at Personally if I owned it and had the chance I'd be going for a more reliable unit. Check out this site for unhappy customers. BMW
