Accidently erased all the programs from my MP3 player

Where do I go online to download the driver for the Sony NW-E405 MP3 Player, and how do I re-install it on my player? Do I need any other programs? The only thing that shows up on my MP3 player screen is "Network Walkman". Thanks.

You will need SonicStage or your device's MP3 Manager to be able to transfer MP3.

Try formatting the device again using its built-in formatting features.

(WARNING: There is no way you can retrieve your data. Since it has already been formatted, it's assumed that you have backup.)

In your Sony NW-E405 MP3 Player:
1. Press and hold the SEARCH/ MENU button
2. Go to ADVANCED MENU (press the Play/ Stop button)
3. Select FORMAT (press Play/ Stop button)
4. From the opt "Format OK?" select OK (press the Play/ Stop button)
5. Once finished, you can Cancel out.

After these steps, your device should screen out "No Data." From there, you can re-transfer your files.

Hi Neo Miguel,
Well first, some of the songs that you put in, well...Sony Co. (Sonicstage) cannot transfer directly, so you would have to use their Sonicstage program, aka the converting button.
Like most Sony mp3 players, you need to use Sonicstage to put songs in the mp3 player.

For the Sony NW-E405 (or the NW-A605), simply go to the Transfer menu at the top right of the program, (along where the My Library button is) and select the song. In the middle of the screen should be arrows along with a suitcase looking button. Click the luggage button and a screen should pop out. It should have two choices, a Standard Transfer Mode and a Specified bit rate transfer mode. Click the Specified one and select either the 105kbps (ATRAC 3) or the 132kbps (ATRAC 3) for great sound quality and small memory usage. The others are too big or too bad for sound quality. It should now work.

Now the mp3 player should be able to read it, since it is now in ATRAC 3 version, not the mp3 version.

Hopefully this solution helped.
Have a nice day!
