Sony 8g nwz-e438f won't delete write protected files

I'm deleting all my music to free space. I have 6 files left to delete and windows Vista won't let me. It keeps saying that the items are write protected. Then, I enter the file delete the songs individually, I turn on the player, and the songs are still there! WTF?!!! Can anyone tell me a way to remove the write protection with out costing me $30 for an application? It's annoying.

SOURCE: can't delete write-protected folder

I have had the same problem with a few files I transfered form my desktop.
The only way to remove the files was to backup what I wanted to save, and then format the memory.
from the HOME screen, goto settings, scroll down to format, chooses YES and YES and format will wipe out those write-protected files and folders.

Then reload player with the goods...

SOURCE: can't play mp4 files

The mp4 files must be maximum 320x240 resolution, any larger and it will tell you that the file is not supported. If the mp4 is created with any profile other than "AVC Baseline" it will tell you the file is corrupted. It also won't do DRM, but I can't remember what, if any, DRM systems typically get used on mp4 files.

SOURCE: Error message when loading videos to my Sony NWZ-E438F

I got the same message when I created .mp4 files using the AVC profile "Main" in my video software.

When I changed to "Baseline" then the problem went away. Of course, it also had to follow all the more obvious restrictions for this device: max resolution 320x240, max 30fps, max bitrate (of 512kbbs? or is it 768?) and AAC audio.

Hi hellohello21,
attach the supplied cable directly to the computer's USB port (don't use any other extension cord simultaneously). If that doesn't work, check if you've some problems with your USB driver.

Is there a way to delete music off my computer without loosing the music on my mp3


Yes just delete the music from your computer. It should not effect your player even if you hook back up. Sony has two programs that you can install on your computer to help you manage your stuff, Check out this link. http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=NWZE438F&SelectOS=27#div_pos_133

I have a used Sony Walkman NWZ-E438F and want to start from scratch. If I press the reset button in the back, will it delete the playlists and still keep the operating program?


Hi bkil105498,
Pressing the Reset Button will probably not delete the playlists and data, it will probably just restore the factory settings. To delete everything, go to Settings--> Common Settings--> then Format. In neither of these ways can the operating program be deleted, only the data and customizations.
Hope this helps.

Can't delete pictures off sony mp3 NWZ-E438F


There do not seem to be any file handling options on the device itself. You have to connect it to your PC, go into Windows Explorer to access it and delete it from there.. well, at least that's what I do
