I have a Sony NWZ-S638F and this just happened to me - I think a registry clean up utility did it but in could have been a Norton 360 reinstall too. I am not technical but I stumbled on a solution.

I realised that something had gone wrong when connecting the player's USB cable I heard a triple bong instead of the usual upward double bong. The computer was recognising a connection but the device could not be found anywhere - believe me, I searched.

The device manager for the player said "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)"

Anyhow, I tried system restores which didn't work. I tried reloading the software from the Sony DVD which didn't work. Finally, I decided to uninstall the driver through frustration and partly because I thought it low risk as the player is meant to be plug 'n play and I've got the DVD so if all went bad I should be able to reinstall and be no worse off.

I went to Device Manager, selected + at Portable devices, double clicked Walkman NWZ-S...etc selected the driver tab and clicked the uninstall button. I then connected the player using its USB cable and heard the upward double bong. Eureka. After following the on-screen instructions for a new device and it works just fine.

Hopes this helps.

What driver do i use for my sony mp4 player... model number nwz-s616f.. please help me


Hi,
It is not required to install any Driver for connecting the Walkman Player to the Computer. The Driver for recognizing the Walkman Player as a MTP Device is already installed in the Computer. You can install the supplied Windows Media Player 11 Software for transferring the files to the Player. You can either Drag and Drop the files using the Windows Explorer to the MUSIC Folder which appears as a Removable Drive or can use the Windows Media Player 11 for transferring. If the Player is not recognized by the Computer, try connecting to different USB ports and try re-installing the USB Driver from the Device Manager.
Thank you for using FixYa!

Hi, I have got the same issue as you. So take the CD that was delivered with the Sony Walkman and reinstall it in your PC. Then your PC will recognize your Walkman again.
