Question about Sony NWZ-E438F Digital Media Player

Freezes on the creating library screen

I've had mine for about three months and just ran into the same problem. I'm not sure what triggered mine, though. I haven't downloaded any new songs in weeks. It worked just fine for my three-hour flight home. When I tried to use it at the gym, it just froze on the Creating Library screen. I've tried the reset button a number of times. I've even tried to format it without any success.

Reformat the player in the settings menu. If this problem persists, contact sony or your dealer for warranty repairs.You can call sony while your getting it on warranty repairs you can ask if they have other suggestions. three months old, should have atleast year warranty.

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/support-contacts.pl?mdl=NWZE438F
on above page you can contact sony support, phone, email, live chat. they will most likely go over the reset, format and firmware upgrade with you.

and if noting helps they should tell you what to do about it where to send it or who to contact.

Vista Home....Automatic restore points are not being saved....I can manually enter them and they show up on the drop down table....I have both drives checked off to allow automatically creating restore...


Hi g502,

Here are some helpful tips that you may use on how to Change the Automatic System Restore Point Settings in Vista Task Scheduler.

By default System Restore is scheduled to create a restore point at 12 AM every day (Daily trigger) and at every system startup (At startup trigger) in Task Scheduler if any system changes were made from the last time it checked. This will show you how to change these schedule settings, or disable one or both triggers.

Warning:
System Restore will need to be turned on for this scheduled task to be able to run.

1. Open the Start Menu.

A) In the white line (Start Search) area, type taskschd.msc and press Enter.

B) Go to step 3.

OR

2. Open the Control Panel (Classic view).

A) Click on the Administrative Tools Icon.

B) Click on Task Scheduler.

3. Click on Continue in the UAC Prompt.

4. In the left pane click on the triangle next to Task Scheduler Library, Microsoft, and Windows to expand the folder tree. (See screenshot below step 5)

5. Click on the SystemRestore folder.

A) Choose a option or options below to do.

To Disable or Enable this Task Completely

6. To Disable this Task Completely -
NOTE: This will disable both the Daily (OPTION TWO) and At startup (OPTION THREE) triggers regardless of how they are set individually.

B) Go to step 22.

7. To Enable this Task Completely -

B) Continue to OPTION TWO.

B) Continue to OPTION THREE.

12. To Enable the Daily Trigger -

Sony NWZ-436F freezes when creating library


Old post I know, but i had a similar problem...
I think it has to do with the file types you upload - had the same issue, and through trial and error I finally noticed one album I uploading was an m4a format. When I would upload several files stepwise, making sure that the player starts after each upload, everything would be fine until I tried the m4a files - it would freeze on the creating library startup screen. This was for the same model as billybraga. Annoying.
