Sony NW-A806 big problem

Hello guys, I'm new to this forum. Can someone help me with my Sony NW-A806? The problems are the following: -when I try to format it's memory from the menu, it says memory formatted but the songs are still there; -when I try and put some new music on it with SonicStage, the music is transferred on the walkman, but when I disconnect it, no music was added to the walkman, memory doesn't fill up -the walkman has the latest version of firmware, but when I try and install a fresh firmware it says "The update tool failed to update the software of the NW-A806 device to version 1.03. To try performing the update again, click [Back]. To close this program click [Finish].

Hi George
Try to reset your player if that fails then try deleting the songs this way
Deleting Files,Pictures,Videos,Audio Books, Apps,etc. from MP3 Player/Ipod
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------BIG WARNING: DO NOT DELETE THE FILES NEEDED TO OPERATE YOUR MP3 PLAYER.
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release,right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
ONE MORE BIG WARNING: BE CAREFUL AND DO NOT DELETE THE FILES NEEDED TO OPERATE YOUR MP3 PLAYER.
Please take time to rate me

Testimonial: "The solution isn't working. Even if I could find the songs (which I can't because Sony has a way to encrypt it's files) and managed to delete them, when I unplug the player and plug it back in, the songs reappear as if nothing happened."

SOURCE: Transfer error - Disagreement between player and software

I had the same issue and I eventually re-formatted the player. Once I had finished that, it seemed to work again, letting me add songs.

SOURCE: Sony NW-E107: Player stops responding. Possible memory failure

I have the same problem. Sometimes mine just turns off, then back on plays for 1-2 seconds then turns off/on again, and does it about 4-5 times before freezing.

Sony NW A806 mp3 not registering what is on memory


If i want to make reference to I POD particularly, you know that you don't copy and paste music onto your i pod except through I tunes player if you do, it will only appear as a music file but will not play neither will the i pod see it, maybe that's how they have designed this one too. So what you have to do is check the installation CD it came with(if any) and install it to your system.

Sony NW-E407 hard drive problem


TO FORMAT THE NW-E50X
I first formated the sony player and after that I had some format error pictures on the screen. So I went to Sony website to check it out. The results came as

Press and hold the menu button for like half a sec till the menu screen pops up, rotate shuffle switch to "advanced menu" till you see "format", press the play button to confirm.

Its all in the sony website.

After formating if you havent updated your sony software I advise to do so it wont take very long.
Happy listening
