My Sony Walkman NWZ-E463 doesn't respond when plugged into my Windows 7 Premium computer?

Please help! It's an emergency!! I own a Sony Walkman NWZ-E463. When I plug it into my computer that has Windows 7 Premium installed on it (via the provided USB cord), a little error window pops up from the task bar stating: "USB Device Not Recognized", then under that it says: "One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it. For assistance in solving this problem, click this message." Anyway, I have tried countless methods that I've found on the Internet to correct this issue, including: Uninstalling and re-installing the driver, then restarting the computer; doing both a soft reset and a hard reset on the device and re-plugging it into the computer; FORMATTING the device and re-plugging the device to the computer; plugging it into the computer using a different USB cord; plugging it into two different computers (a computer with Linux installed on it, and one with Windows Vista installed on it)...None of these even temporarily solved the issue! One more detail: When I do plug it into the computer, it actually does charge, but I am not able to browse files from within the device. It does not show up as a portable device in the Device Manager. I'm at the end of my rope here...I need to be able to use my Walkman because I am teaching my first dance class this Saturday, and the Walkman is my only source of music! I need answers, please and thank you! :)

    I have tried plugging it into a computer via USB hub, as well as plugging it up to an Alienware gaming laptop. I have tried all of the USB slots on all of the computers I plugged my device into. I have also tried plugging it into my PS3, my cable box, my television, and my Wii.

    I have e-mailed the manufacturer, and they have suggested that I try everything I have already tried, or send to get it repaired for a mere $50! That seems like a real waste of money because the issue I am having with the device seems so fixable! Please please please help!

SOURCE: sony walkman nwz-a816 getting usb device not recognized

okay, try plugging it in. Go to Startmenu, right click 'My computer', and select properties. Go to the 'Hardware' tab, then Device manager. Down at the bottom, you should see a section of the tree that can be expanded, entitled 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' Find the Unknown device part. Select that, then go to 'Action','Uninstall'. After un-installation, the computer might restart. Unplug your walkman. When windows is back up, plug it in, and see if that works. if not, I have an alternative solution

SOURCE: My LN40C530F1FXZA give a massage that the USB 1/2 power overload, new device not found. also none of the HDMI are working. All other components work.

Just do a reset to this set, and then check. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

How can I prevent sony walkman NWZ-E463 from turning on?


The switch inside might not be aligned with the outside switch, just like mine was, because I opened it up. Try aligning it if you like fidgeting with electronics, if not try to find someone willing to fix it for you.

I had the same problem but i solved it.
Follow the folliwing steps.
1- Download firmware nwz-b133f (firmware nwz-b130 V-1.01)
2- Download firmware nwz-b103 (firmware nwz-b100 V-1.3)
3- First execute firmware nwz-b100 , connect your walkman when the programm
asks: please connect device. Then the program ask format your device
you will loose all the data , click accept.
4- Don´t disconnect your device , wait until format and dataload are finished.
This is necesary because firmware nwz-b130 doesn´t do the format.
5- Disconnect your walkman and you will see it doesn´t start (logical it ain´t his
firmware)
6- Now execute firmware nwz-b130 , connect your walkman when the programm
asks: please connect device. Don´t disconnect your walkman wait until program ends.
7- When finished disconnect your walkman the save way.
8- Ready like new.
