Question about Sony Network Walkman NW-A3000 MP3 Player

Sony SonicStage and NW-A1000

The SonicStage program was working ok until very recently. It now freezes the minute I load it; and doesn't recognise the walkman. I deleted SonicStage then downloaded it again from the Sony website, but still have the same problem. Any solutions?!

    When I connect my walkman to Sonic Stage software a box appears and says the program needs to close and it does!!

    I have the same problem, i downloaded it and it worked for about half an hour, allowed me to import my music and then froze. I've tried deleting and re-downloading it several times but it's still doing it. I emailed technical support and they haven't given me a solution.

I've had the exactly the same problem, sonic stage has been fine for about 2-3 years, then all of a sudden it freezes as soon as its loaded. In the end i reinstalled it via a new guest account, and now it works fine on that account, but still not on my normal on! You have to log on to the admin account after the initial restart for the installation to complete, once thats done go to the guest account and it should work fine and recognise your walkman
