ive got the new version of the sony sonic stage downloaded onto my laptop,and when i plug my player into my laptop via usb cable,the player itself is recognized straight away as a harddrive/removable disk etc,and you have to transfrer music onto the player as from sonic stage music library,and you also have to creatate you own music library via sonic stage,and u can also transfer music from your own music library wich you use via windows media player,and also u can transfer a cd into you sony sonic stage music libraty,and this is similar to when your using the windows media player as to rip a cd or transfer music onto an mp3 player,as i use all diffrent types of mp3 players myself,and i find the archos gmini sx 202 player to be pretty awesome player,as ive got to of them as well,and i use windows media player as to transfer music files onto them,and i cannot transfer any music files onto the sony ones via windown media player as those music file wont show up on the player at all,and ive tried this myself,and it will only work via sony sonic stage.

Just opened mine an hour ago. Version 3.0 Sonic Stage in the box. They really want you to use their Atrac compression. In Sonic Stage, Import your files (or let it create your libray), then it will convert as needed.

I am now listening to music. Meanwhile I have downloaded Sonic Stage 4.3 from Sony website, as well as the 4.3 security patch.

However, they have an MP3 driver that will allow you to load MP3 onto this device, without Sonic Stage (you'll need to install). Doesn't say if it will allow WMA too.

I'll be trying more tomorrow.

You could try doing what you did on "My Computer but right clicking on "Removable Disk E" and clicking format which will format it and may bring the connecting devices back.

However try using Windows Media Player 10 or 11 to put music on again, because media player may find your device.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.

T.Sonic Family Initialising.........

T.sonic cannot operate after it was formatted in Windows
Formatting T.sonic using the “Quick Format” or “Full Format” option in Windows destroys the
default format of the T.sonic. To retrieve the default format, you must link to and download the firmware updates for the T.sonic.

Not powering ON..getting switched off Transcend T.sonic 610 MP3 PLayer

Do NOT format it -- I did a complete format as another user suggested and now it only appears to be useful as a pen drive. It will not play anything and I've tried reinstalling the firmware and it doesn't even recognize that it's an mp3 player so I can't install it!

Sonic stage freezes when trying to delete files when trying to delete files using sonic stage the program frezes and will not allow me to delete any files from my walkman

If you haven't installed the latest version of SonicStage - v4.3, uninstall your version and install it from here: If it still continues to lock up, I think that it's an issue with the database on the device. The easiest way to remedy this would be to initialise the disk and copy your music over again. To reinitialise the disk, go to the home menu, choose settings in the bottom left, go up once to "Initialize Disk" and select it, then select yes to proceed.

My walkman is driving me crazy

Hi there, i have no solution, i just wanted to tell you you are not the only one!!! I have had mine since january this year, was able to use it for three months before i had too many songs on the computer for it to handle. I updated firmware and to sonic stage 3.4 as connect (as we all know) hardly ever worked. I changed computers and i lost my whole music collection due to sonys small print, apparently unless you back up your collection you can't play atrac files if you move them from one computer to the other without their original Mp3s. Pity i converted all my mp3s to atrac then deleted the mp3s cos i had no room!! Sony does have software problems. Now, for 5 months i haven't been able to use the player...sonic plays the music on my computer now that i have collected it all again. I AM SO FRUSTRATED WITH THIS AWESOME PIECE OF HARDWARE THAT IS JUST LITERALLY UNUSABLE!! I just recieved a message from sony to try steps to recovery that i have tried week and week again... i can only try one to two times per week before i feel like throwing it through my local department store window..What do we do with this equipment that cost money but doesn't work?? SONY owes me!!
