1. Check whether the file format of the audio file you are trying to play in the Walkman is supported by the Walkman. You can check the supported file formats in the manual of the Walkman under "Specifications".
2. Check whether the issue occurs with all the audio files. If you are not able to play the file which you were able to play in past, then it must be the issue with the Walkman.
Then you may reset the Walkman to check whether the issue is resolved. Press the RESET button located at the bottom of the Walkman to reset it. You may also try Formatting (USE FORMAT OPTION IN WALKMAN) the Walkman and re-transfer the audio files to the Walkman to check whether the issue is resolved. NOTE: Never format the Walkman in the Computer as it will delete all the Supporting files in the memory of the Walkman.
You may also try transferring the audio files using the supplied Software like Content Transfer, WMP 11 and SonicStage.
Media Manager for Walkman
Windows Media Player 11
Content transfer version 1.2
Content transfer version 1.3
Note: Carefully read the overview/features and instructions. Some players require firmware upgrading before installing
the content transfer software !
apologies if this message finds you long after posting this problem ,
but I am currently working through a backlog of problems that never got
answered and hopefully this info can still be of use if not now possibly
Please download Disc Digger HERE.
This is a free tool you can use that works very well and there is no
installation required, just run the program once you downloaded it.
you have connected the memory disk / hdd to the computer , run the program.
the program , select the dig deep option for accidentally deleted files
or dig deeper for a formatted drive. Then select the disk you want to do
the recovery on and run the program.
The data will be displayed
and you can recover it from there. This will only work if the card has
not been used since the data was lost. Save the files to a location
on the computer hard drive and not back to the disk it is recovering from as this will
overwrite the other pictures that still needs to be recovered.
Some of the properties of the files may become lost in the recovery but the pictures should be fine.
You will also only be able to recover certain file types using this method.
Here is the info from Sony:
Is it possible to drag and drop music from the Apple® iTunes® software to the portable player using the Content Transfer Application?
Yes, if you have iTunes software installed, you can transfer music and playlists from iTunes software to the Walkman® player by dragging and then dropping the files to the Content Transfer application.
The Content Transfer application supports data transfer from iTunes software 7.6 or 7.7 to the Walkman player.
The Content Transfer application supports data transfer from iTunes software 8.0. However, for playlist transfer from iTunes software 8.0 to the Walkman player, make sure you are using the latest version of the Content Transfer application. The latest version can be downloaded from the Sony Support Web Site at http://esupport.sony.com
Digital Rights Management (DRM) copyright-protected files are not supported. iTunes music files may be able to be upgraded to iTunes Plus music files, which do not contain DRM.
Do not disconnect the USB connection during data transfer.
If there is insufficient free space on the portable player, the data cannot be transferred.
The Content Transfer application is included with most newer Walkman Video players. It also is available for additional models in the NWZ-A, NWZ-E, and NWZ-S series. Some models may require an update to be compatible. Additional model-specific information can be found in the Drivers & Software section of the Sony Support Web Site at http://esupport.sony.com.
