Question about Sony NW-A1000 MP3 Player

1 Answer

MP3 NW-A1000 I have bought a new Dell Laptop and was trying to install my software for my NW-A1000 but it is not allowing it to be used. I was able to go through the install process but it will not allow me to open it. The error message says limited user is not supported. installed the programme onto my laptop, with vista could this be a problem, and i get limited user accounts are not supported. it did install on an older computer think that was running the windows before vista. please help am started to get very annoyed about this or should i just buy a new i-pod.

If the new laptop is running vista, then there is the problem. Vista is plagued with all sorts of user permission bugs. its seems that you need above admin permissions to do the most normal of things. bad software design from microsoft! vista is like going out with a super model, all singing, all dancing, looks fantastic, but after a while you realise she just a pain in the bum!

so...try right clicking the icon you are trying to launch and select "run as administrator" if the software does not run then there are two ways to cure this... the very quick way, but the problem may come back in the future with other software, or the long way, which will defo stop the issue and it ever coming back again!
the long one we will leave if the short fix does not work, so if that is the case and the short solution does not work then come back to me and i will give you instructions on how to change your user rights in vista. (this whole prob comes down to the user rights your login has been given) but we shall cross that bridge if we need to as it can be indepth.
if however you know how to change the user rights on account in vista then thats the solution, change your account to an 'administrator' in users on the laptop.

however, however... the very fast solution is this download this and install and hey presto your mp3 player and your pc are connected!

hope this helps! if not come back to me and i shall help further!!

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.

Maybe the mp3 player is dead.. but.. you should install the firmware update for it.. because maybe the mp3 player ROM has a defect..

My sony walkman NW-A1000 wont show any of my songs i put on it!!


firstly all the tracks you want must be converted into mp3 format. You can get hold off mp3 converter software such as Power and winlame. also all the tracks you want has to be imported into the Connect Player software. you should have a cd that comes with the player, it is similar to iTunes with the iPod. i think you can possibly download it from the sony website. when you have them both convert the tracks into mp3s and then import them into the Connect player. From Connect you will be able to transfer the music across. Hope it helps
