Question about Sony NW-A1000 MP3 Player

4 Answers

Error 032 Hello I added to my Sony NW-A1000 some folders which were full of heavy data I needed to trasnport to my computer. I did this because I thought it could be used as a mass storage device too. When I connected the player to my computer it turned up as a removable disc but when i tried opening it it got stuck fro a while and then it just dissapeared as hardware. I thought it must need charging (but only charged it recently) so i plugged into power and the red ligt does not come on. I clicked on the play button and all i got was Sorry, there is a system error (No. 032). This is all it says and nothing happens if i press any other buttons. When I connected it back to my computer it did not come up as hardware anymore. Please help me if you know what this error 032 is? Thanks :-)

Re: Error 032

My NW-A1000 also threw up the same problem when I left my laptop and it went into sleep mode.

Pressing the reset button with the end of a paper clip did cure the problem with no loss of music.

Hope this helps others.

I tried to rechange the player using my computer.Now it says: Sorry, there is a system error (no. 032). What does this mean?

Hi I had the same problem thi smorning. To my limited knowledge, I think it was because I disconnected the port from the pebble before disconnecting it from the computer. So i just reconnected eveything back, and then disconnected the usb port first and then the jack from the pebble.

Am keeping my fingers crossed, but I think that was it! :)

Artist all songs is wrong

This means that your Library is corrupted and needs to be recreated this will not delete you *.omg files just you library.

Please delete your Library: Go to the Windows Explorer, and make sure to make hidden files visible (go to the Tools on the menu and click the Folder Options, then on the View tab, select the Show hidden files and folder.)
Browse to C:\Document and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Sony Corporation\CONNECT Player\Library and delete all the files located in this folder. Then, recreate a new library.

Sony NW-A1000 will not play,

If you get the spinning disc error on your sony nw a1000 it means the hardrive is knackerd.
The hardrive in the sony NW A1000 is a segate ST1.2 6gb and these can be bought off ebay for around £8. If you can't find a 6gb one you can fit an 8gb hardrive BUT your NW A1000 will only use 6gb of it.

If you search on the internet you can find instructions on how to remove the back cover of your NW A1000 which is very easy to do! You then unplug the hardrive (be very careful!) and replace it with the new seagate hardrive. Turn the NW A1000 on and go to the home menu, select "settings", then select "intialize disc" and it will format your new hardrive so that it can work with NW A1000.
