I have audible books on my laptop, but unable to transfer them to my sony walkman nwz - w202. How do I convert them. thanks

MP3 players can only play music files and audio books in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs and audio books to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

Assuming that you mean the NWZ-E438F model, when using the Media
Manager for Walkman, it has no conversion tool.

For transferring video the Content Transfer software should be used
and installed first.
All support for the NWZ-E438F, see next site:
Under the bar Downloads, see the site to the conversion tool:

No Videos!!

The Sony NWZ range can only play WMV (windows media video) files. All movies you download through iTunes are .Mov (quicktime) files so these are not compatible. There are some convertors that can translate between .mov and wmv but for movies you have downloaded through iTunes, this will not be possible I'm afraid because of the copy protection they have built in.

To transfer wmv files onto your walkman don't use iTunes but use the Windows Explorer itself. Just drag the files on to the Video folder of your device.

All the best
