Question about Sony Network Walkman NW-HD3 MP3 Player

1 Answer

DOES NOT RECOGNIZE PLAYER WHEN CONNECTED

I have a real problem with my Walkman as when I connect to the PC it does not recognize this although the player shows up on the screen it's connected. Thus I am unable to transfer any tracks on Sonic Stage or any other media player. When I do this on my PC at home it freezes completely. Have uninstalled and re-installed Sonic Stage & drivers many times but this does not help. If I format the disk, do you think this will help? When I connect my Sony NW-HD3 up to my computer. it installs no drivers and says that it has malfunctioned, so gets recognised as an unknown device. I don't even see it in My Computer as a a removable Disk. When I go to Device Manager it recognises its plugged in. So I tried to force the right drivers to no avail.

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.

Not charging even i plug in my computer and not recognize


Hi,

The Computer will not recognize the Walkman when connected, if it is not having enough charge. You can try connecting the Walkman Player to the working USB port on the Computer for 2 hours and check if the player is getting charged. I suggest that you also perform the steps mention on the article given here. Click here to view the steps to troubleshoot the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hello,
I own this same MP3 player. Had this happen to me and I have a great laptop too. Just out of the blue it would not work in any of my USB ports. When your MP3 is plugged into your USB port you should be able to click on "devices" and go to your MP3 player and there should be a option to fix the driver. It will update the driver for the MP3 player. What's happening is your driver is not recognizing the MP3 player. No biggie, you just have to make it recognize it again.
Regards, Tony

My computer won't recognize my walkman


Try connecting using other ports, if it still fails, try using a known good cable. If that doesn't work, try checking if you have the driver for the device so that the pc will recognize the device.
