I dont know how to put songs in my song nwe005

How do I Put Music on an NW-E003F Sony MP3 Player?

The Sony Walkman E003F is a small portable device resembling a flash drive. This Walkman has 1 GB of storage which accommodates about 685 songs. When the battery is at capacity, the Walkman can play back up to 28 hours of audio. The small player has a built-in USB connector to make downloading convenient. If you want to add songs to your MP3 player, you must use Windows Explorer to download MP3-, AAC- and WMA-formatted audio to the device.


Remove the USB cap on the player to reveal the USB plug.

Insert the USB plug on the player into the computer's USB port.

Select "My Computer" from the desktop "Start" menu.

Double-click on the "WALKMAN" drive folder to open it.

Double-click to open the "MUSIC" folder.

Drag the audio file from the save location on the computer and drop it in the "MUSIC" folder. The songs will load and play in the order that they are dropped into the folder.

Hope it helped.

I dropped my sony walkman NW-A808, it won't turn on

You should open it up and see if it has some sort of removal storage like a CF card or micro hard drive. If it exists than you are in luck you can most probably save your collection by connecting the storage medium by using an appropriate adapter.

Sony NW-A1000 will not play,

If you get the spinning disc error on your sony nw a1000 it means the hardrive is knackerd.
The hardrive in the sony NW A1000 is a segate ST1.2 6gb and these can be bought off ebay for around £8. If you can't find a 6gb one you can fit an 8gb hardrive BUT your NW A1000 will only use 6gb of it.

If you search on the internet you can find instructions on how to remove the back cover of your NW A1000 which is very easy to do! You then unplug the hardrive (be very careful!) and replace it with the new seagate hardrive. Turn the NW A1000 on and go to the home menu, select "settings", then select "intialize disc" and it will format your new hardrive so that it can work with NW A1000.

Wet through

it depends upon the chasis. if it is immersed for a while then the circuits present inside the player might get short circuited. then it can be never turned back on. there are many ways to save the device when it is dropped into the water, Remove the batterys as soon as possible.
